I am a Partner in the Private Client Department at Hodge Jones & Allen. I have been a lawyer for 26 years. I specialise in all aspects of Court of Protection work and am appointed as Court Deputy (property and affairs) by the Court of Protection in 23 cases responsible for management of £50,000,000 of Client funds. I also act as Professional Trustee in a number of cases. My work is very rewarding but can be very litigious, the Protected Parties’ best interests are my first priority and this involves a sensitive balancing act on their behalf on a daily basis, for example I have just concluded a very challenging “best interest” litigated case in the Court of Protection. I work closely with vulnerable Clients, families, social services, case managers, therapists, financial advisers and benefits agencies to ensure the right level of support.
I am also a highly experienced Catastrophic Injury solicitor with over 20 years experience in this field. I conduct both personal injury and clinical negligence cases of maximum severity, utilising a holistic approach in all aspects of the work on behalf of the Client whilst remaining a formidable opponent. Current cases include complex acquired brain injury claims for children and adults and spinal injury cases. I also have expertise in child abuse claims, claim against public authorities and fatal accident (especially mesothelioma) and criminal injury cases.
When not at work I am a busy mother of three children including two teenagers. I play tennis a couple of times each week and I enjoy singing weekly as part of a wonderful group called Natural Voices. I was lucky enough to sing both at the Royal Variety Performance last December and earlier this year at the Olivier Awards.
I am a recommended lawyer in Legal 500 2019 and was described as ‘genuinely empathetic who understands the complex needs and circumstances of her clients’.
