I began my training contract at Hodge Jones & Allen LLP in September 2016, having previously worked as a paralegal in the firm’s Civil Liberties and Clinical Negligence Departments. My first seat is in the Civil Liberties Department. I am currently working on claims against the police and other public authorities, including civil actions for assault, false imprisonment, malicious prosecution, discrimination and breach of the Human Rights Act. I am very passionate about civil liberties, working with vulnerable individuals and helping those whose rights have been violated to seek justice and accountability.
