I am an associate solicitor in Irwin Mitchell's Public Law & Human Rights department, based in Leeds, specialising in health and welfare law. I represent individuals or family members in Court of Protection proceedings relating to care, residence, contact and so on. I also advise and assist those who seek help with decisions made by local authorities and clinical commissioning groups in relation to the provision of care. I have extensive experience of bringing judicial reviews on behalf of claimants.
Before this role I was a prison lawyer for 12 years. I also have experience of inquests, particularly those involving deaths in prison.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
It is a cliché, but I went into a career in the law because I wanted to help people.
