I am a Senior Associate and the National Litigation Support Manager in our Court of Protection team. I am based in our London office and joined the department in 2011.
The Court of Protection team helps vulnerable people look after their financial affairs. My role includes advising and assisting people with managing personal injury damages, either through Deputyships or trusts.
I also manage our litigation support services to active personal injury matters by assisting with expert Deputyship and Trust cost witness statements.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
From an early age, experienced the benefit of legal support and Deputyships for my younger brother. I wanted to provide the same help and support that he received to other vulnerable people.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I enjoy being able to help and advise vulnerable clients by supporting them in the management of their financial affairs. Helping and protecting my clients gives me the opportunity to make a difference to their lives which is extremely rewarding.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
I like working with people who share the same empathy and passion for their job as I do to help vulnerable clients and their close ones. In addition, Irwin Mitchell is a market leader for Court of Protection work which allows me to work with professionals at the top of their field.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I am an avid sports and music fan and try to see as much live/music as possible. I play the drums when time permits and also enjoy spending time with my family and pets.
