About Anita Barylska

Anita is Solicitor within the Housing team who deals with a wide range of housing cases including disrepair, possession and homelessness applications and appeals. She is committed to securing access to justice for all and empowering often vulnerable and marginalised clients to fight for their rights.

Anita qualified as a solicitor after completing a training contract at Hodge Jones & Allen. She undertook seats in Dispute Resolutions, Private Client, Crime and Housing. Prior to that, Anita worked as a personal injury paralegal in two practices in London and as a Senior Independent Modern Slavery Advocate in a charity supporting victims of modern slavery, human trafficking and labour exploitation. Thanks to the experience gathered in the third sector, she has published academic papers aiming at bridging the gap between the theory and practice of anti-trafficking laws in the UK.

"Best law firm experience I've had. Anita was great. I felt she had a genuine interest in my case and was making every effort to help where she could. Very often highly regulated services feel very transactional - not on this occasion."

"Anita was great. For the first time in dealing with a solicitor firm, I felt that she actually cared about my case! Gave reasonable advice and felt that she took her time to help me as best as she could. Can't say much about the firm itself, as my experience was brief and with one junior solicitor."

Anita has also volunteered for numerous charities, including Liberty and Citizens Advice Bureau.

Client Comments
