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.
"I found the help I received very useful as my query related to a complex case in deciding whether my client was objecting to their placement. It was looked at with an expert eye" - 5* Trustpilot review by Angie Cooper
"Very good service. Supported me on the first challenge to court of protection and was a great help with wealth of knowledge and advice to make process as supportive for the partner we were supporting. Would highly recommend." - Trustpilot review
