I qualified as a solicitor in 2019 into the Family Team in Bristol. I regularly assist senior team members and act in a wide variety of cases. These include financial settlements on divorce and asset protection issues, including pre and post-marital agreements.
I frequently assist with cases involving arrangements for children, including contact and residence disputes, and the financial responsibilities which follow the breakdown of married and unmarried parental relationships.
I am a member of Resolution and I am a committee member of the National Resolution Membership Committee.
What inspired you to get into law?
My interest lies in Family Law, as I really enjoy how each case is so different and I enjoy the complexities of the legal arguments involved in each case.
I am a people person and I enjoy working with our diverse clients. I chose a career in law with the intention of helping others.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
The most rewarding aspect of my role is reaching the best outcome for a client, be it in regards to matrimonial proceedings or children cases. I find helping those who are going through an incredibly stressful period in their lives very rewarding.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I like the ethos of Irwin Mitchell and I feel they really do encompass their approach of ‘Expert Hand Human Touch.’
What do you do away from the office?
I try to get outdoors and be active as often as possible; I particularly enjoy hiking, surfing and canoeing. I enjoy running and have taken part in a number of 10ks, I am working my way up to half marathon! I also love food and am a keen cook.
“I found Irwin Mitchell to be very professional & efficient, in particular Nicola Walker and Sarah Young. I greatly appreciated being kept up to date with the proceeding and their sound counsel meant I could make informed decisions. They made a stressful event less so by explaining the process and the implications. They have a warm and very caring approach whilst being extremely effective. I would recommend Irwin Mitchel without hesitation and would just like to thank Sarah and Nicola for all their hard work.” - Former client
