I am a solicitor who specialises in representing bereaved families at inquests and in civil claims following the death of a loved one in prison or police custody. I currently work alongside Jocelyn Cockburn. I also work on actions against the police, with a particular interest in challenging the police when young people have been poorly treated. I am an accredited police station representative, advising members of the public who have been arrested or have been asked to be interviewed by the police. The majority of the clients that I work with rely on legal aid funding.
I joined Hodge Jones & Allen as a trainee solicitor in 2017 and worked with Nigel Richardson in Criminal Defence, Jacqueline Major in Family law and Jayesh Kunwardia in Social Housing before concluding my training with Alice Hardy in Civil Liberties.
Before switching careers, I worked for a youth work charity and listened to the concerns and challenges of young people in the inner-city before informing and advising politicians and the wider public. I co-authored a report on the risks faced by thousands of girls associated with gangs that featured on all major news outlets including the front page of the BBC website. Previously, I worked in central government as an economist in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. I worked closely with 10 Downing Street to prepare the Prime Minister and other Ministers for G8 and G20 Summits.
