I joined Irwin Mitchell in 2014, as a trainee solicitor. In 2016 I qualified as a solicitor in the Public Law & Human Rights team, specialising in Court of Protection, civil liberties, and community care cases.
I act on behalf of vulnerable adults and their families in Court of Protection matters, particularly in relation to disputes regarding capacity and best interests. Typically, I represent clients in:
I act on behalf of the Official Solicitor, Independent Mental Capacity Advocates (IMCAs) and family members.
I regularly help people challenge decisions made by public bodies, including local authorities and the NHS. This includes challenging cuts to NHS services and the closure of local government services, and working with people who have received unlawful care assessments or inappropriate care packages.
I have also helped refugees with social care needs to access suitable accommodation and have experience representing family members at inquests into the death of a loved one.
“Thank you for all your kindness, support and diligence in this very protracted and difficult situation. It has helped the family considerably to know you were there fighting on Joe’s behalf and it was very reassuring to know that Joe was at the centre of all you did.”
“I feel so privileged to have had such a positive and supportive experience with what could have been quite different had it not been for you. Thank you so so much.”
“The team at Irwin Mitchell are fantastic, great advice, friendly and always there to help, they are so understanding and compassionate but also passionate about what they do and achieving the right outcome for you, I would and have recommended them to others already and will continue to do so, Saoirse De Bont and Elizabeth Ridley have been exceptional in our case along with involvement from Mathieu Culverhouse.”
“Brilliant solicitors. They helped me with a problem re: my handicapped daughter’s housing and I couldn’t have managed without them. I was totally out of my comfort zone, but the firm guided me to victory after a truly stressful year.”
I wanted to develop a career doing a job in which I had to use multiple skills, including analysis and problem-solving, while working with people. It is very important to me that my job makes a difference to people’s lives and gets tangible results, and that I can feel proud of the work that I do. Law has ticked all those boxes!
It is wonderful to be able to assist vulnerable people to have a voice, and there is nothing better than to achieve a life-changing result for a client.
We have an extremely friendly and collaborative team, and many of my colleagues have become close friends.
Prior to becoming a solicitor I worked with the United Nations overseas, and I still love to travel and experience new cultures. Spending quality time with family and friends, good food, listening to music and curling up with a good book are all ways I like to relax!
“How can you put a price on a child’s life? NHS treatment should be provided based on the clinical needs of the patient.”
“Our clients are understandably devastated by the decision taken earlier this year and after reviewing all of the facts we have come to the conclusion that the process used to reach that decision may have been flawed.
“This treatment has made a huge difference to the lives of our clients and it is something they could also access in a host of other countries, including France, Germany, the Netherlands and Slovakia.
“There clearly needs to be a reconsideration of this issue and we are determined to fight hard to ensure that our clients’ voices are heard on this incredibly important matter.”
