I am a qualified solicitor who joined the Industrial Disease team after qualifying with the firm in April 2018.
I spent six months with the department during my training contract and I am now assisting Isobel Lovett, a partner and head of the team, with her case load.
The work is focused on asbestos related conditions, in particular mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural thickening. We pride ourselves on considering every avenue when pursuing a claim and will often be successful where other firms might have given up.
Our clients and their families come to us at a difficult time in their lives and it is a privilege to help them obtain justice.
Before joining Hodge Jones & Allen I had experience in a number of different areas of the law.
I worked as an immigration caseworker at Duncan Lewis, handling my own caseload under supervision. I worked at Public Interest Lawyers as a paralegal; in this role I travelled on a regular basis to Istanbul to assist clients who were being interviewed by the Iraqi Historical Allegations Team as well as assisting with inquest works and international claims for personal injury. I then moved to Leigh Day where I spent a year assisting on a group claim against ASDA for equal pay and also in the Human Rights department where I assisted on claims for discrimination within prisons as well as court of protection.
