I am an associate in the Birmingham Court of Protection department. I manage both Trust and Deputy files. I am a specialist in advising on the management of personal injury damages by way of Deputy or Trust environment.
What inspired you to get into law?
I studied Law at University where I was able to meet various people from different law firms and gain a real insight into the work that is carried out. I realised very early that I had a particular interest in Court of Protection matters. The work we do involves working directly with clients, case managers, therapists and support teams. I directly assist and help individuals in their day to day lives which is incredible fulfilling.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Working in Court of Protection, it is very difficult to pick one highlight. I find every day brings its own highlight when you are able to achieve something for and with your clients that they would not have otherwise been able to do; whether this is being able to attend school, go on holidays, take their first steps or being able to live as independently as possible.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy travelling and have visited many different places, both home and abroad, my favourite place to date is Peru in South America. I hope to visit New Zealand in the future. I enjoy walks in the countryside with my dog – a very bouncy golden retriever. I also enjoy horse riding. I enjoy fantasy books and my latest read was the Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson.
