I have over four years’ experience working on court of protection matters, specialising in property and financial affairs.
I’m experienced in dealing with applications for the appointment of a deputy for property and affairs, as well as more complex deputyship matters. These include: applications for authority to purchase property, statutory will applications and an array of other applications that may need to be made to the court of protection during a deputyship.
I also assist with the day-to-day management of the property and affairs of those who lack capacity to manage these themselves.
What inspired you to get into law?
I’ve always been very proud of the work ethic displayed by my mother and father when I was growing up, who worked in completely different industries. I felt that watching and learning from them provided me with the different skills I needed to become a successful lawyer. I felt a role in the legal industry would place me in the best position to maximise these skills and enable me to help others.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
When I began my first role as a Paralegal, it became clear how important my role was. My ability to summarise complex legal situations, present an understandable summary of the facts and explain the options available was invaluable for my clients.
I have, and always will, find it the most rewarding aspect of my role to be able to help a client understand their course of action in a situation where they feel helpless.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
Irwin Mitchell provides me with the support and infrastructure I need to allow me to provide the best possible service to my clients.
What do you do away from the office?
Outside of work, I attempt to play an array of sports and currently play Rugby Union for my local club, Pentyrch R.F.C. As well as sport I also like to travel as often as possible, which is not a hobby I’ve been able to pursue over the past 18 months.
