I joined Hodge Jones & Allen in August 2016 as a paralegal in the civil liberties department under the supervision of Claire Brigham and Jocelyn Cockburn. I work on a variety of cases including: actions against the police and other authorities including civil actions for assault, false imprisonment and malicious prosecution, breaches of human rights and inquests. I have previously worked in Mental Health law, representing and advocating for civil and criminally detained patients under the Mental Health Act 1983. I am passionate about representing vulnerable individuals whose rights have been violated and who are seeking justice.
