I'm a solicitor in the Court of Protection team based in our Birmingham office.
I specialise in all areas of mental capacity and Court of Protection work including, the management of high value deputyships and Personal Injury Trusts.
I act for a range of clients including children and adults who have suffered brain damage as a result of a catastrophic accident or clinical negligence and who require assistance in the management of their compensation awards. I work closely with our personal injury departments and regularly liaise with case managers, therapists and care staff to ensure that our clients’ needs are met.
My expertise includes deputyship applications for both professional and lay deputies, all aspects of ongoing management and the preparation and management of Personal Injury Trusts.
What inspired you to get in to law?
I decided to study law at university as I thought it would be a good starting point for a number of professional careers. Once I gained an insight into life working as a solicitor I knew that I would be well suited to the role.
Working in the Court of Protection department gives me the opportunity to apply the skills that I developed in my legal education whilst also helping others.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
The most rewarding aspect of my role is seeing the progress made by our clients in their rehabilitation journey following injury and knowing that I have played a small part in helping them to achieve their goals.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I enjoy working at Irwin Mitchell as I'm surrounded by hard-working individuals who are determined to get the best outcome possible for their clients.
What do you do away from the office?
Away from the office I enjoy playing golf and going on walks with my dog, Moose.
