I am a solicitor based in our Cambridge office. I specialise in community care, healthcare and mental capacity law. I act on behalf of the Official Solicitor, Independent Mental Capacity Advocates (IMCAs) and for families of vulnerable adults in the Court of Protection under the Mental Capacity Act.
I also act for individuals seeking to challenge decisions made by public bodies in relation to their care, healthcare or medical treatment. I joined Irwin Mitchell as a paralegal in 2015 after working at a human rights charity in London and a regional law firm in Cambridge.
What inspired you to get in to law?
While working in the charity sector, I saw first-hand, the importance of the law in empowering and safeguarding the vulnerable.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Giving clients a voice and seeing benefits not only to individual clients’ lives but to wider groups and communities as a result of the work we do.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I enjoy working with such a committed and passionate team and being able to draw on their expertise to enhance and develop my knowledge.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy playing sports, running, going to the gym and going on city breaks.
