I specialise in Criminal Injuries Compensation (CICA) claims. I have 10 years of experience in this area and deal with a variety of assault and abuse claims.
I’ve recently joined Irwin Mitchell in the CICA team in Leeds. I qualified as a Solicitor in September 2018.
What inspired you to get into law?
I liked the idea of helping others, and law was always something that I wanted to do.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
It’s rewarding to get a successful outcome for clients, especially those who are vulnerable and have experienced difficult times.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
Having recently joined Irwin Mitchell, it’s a friendly and nice place to work. We deal with clients who have serious injuries and who often need the standard of service and advice that our team can provide.
What do you do away from the office?
I like to spend time with my family and friends. I love music and going to concerts. I’m also a bit of a telly addict and enjoy trying new places to eat.
