I joined Hodge Jones and Allen as a trainee in September 2016. I am spending my first six months in the personal injury department.
Before joining as a trainee 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 then 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.
