Legal 500 Recommended Lawyer 2015

I joined Hodge Jones and Allen in 2007 as a housing paralegal and have since successfully completed my training contract at the firm. I qualified as a solicitor in September 2011.

I have assisted tenants to bring disrepair claims, to defend injunction proceedings and to defend possession claims. I have also successfully dealt with a variety of Housing Act appeals in the County Court on behalf of homeless applicants. I also have a particular interest in utilising the Equality Act 2010 to promote and defend the interests of my clients.

I am also recommended in the Legal 500.

Notable Cases

  • Wandsworth v NJ –Case no: B5/2012/3414. I acted for the homeless applicant who had fled domestic violence in another part of the UK and moved into a women’s refuge in London. The Court of Appeal upheld the County Court decision that the local authority had erred by not issuing a further ‘minded to find’ decision to allow the applicant an opportunity to respond to their findings in relation to the risk of harm she faced in London.
