I am a solicitor in the Public Law and Human Rights department at Irwin Mitchell and I specialise in community care, administrative and public law, and mental capacity law. I joined Irwin Mitchell as a trainee in 2016 and qualified in 2018. I represent vulnerable adults and their families in disputes in the Court of Protection concerning their health and welfare. I also act for adults and children in relation to their access to health and social care, advising on the lawfulness of decisions taken by public bodies.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I was drawn to a career in law, and in particular to a career in the areas of public law and human rights, by the combination of the academic challenge and the opportunity to make a real tangible difference to the lives of vulnerable people, and to effect wider social change.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Obtaining positive results for clients in a way which sees their lives improved in some way is incredibly rewarding, whether that is an improvement in the care support that they receive, or a change in the law affecting large numbers of people.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
My colleagues! I work with dedicated, compassionate and intelligent people who have unrivalled expertise in their fields and who constantly push boundaries to improve the lives of vulnerable people.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I enjoy art, music, travel and growing vegetables in my allotment.
I qualified as a solicitor in 2018.
