I graduated from the University of Leeds in 2009 with a 2:1 Degree in Politics and Spanish. After spending two years working in international development and charity organisations, I went on to study at BPP Law School in London, gaining a Distinction in both the Graduate Diploma in Law in 2012 and the Legal Practice Course in 2013. During the summer of 2012 I undertook an internship with the Death Penalty Project at Simons Muirhead and Burton Solicitors. Between 2013 and 2014 I worked as a paralegal in the City before beginning my training contract at Hodge Jones & Allen LLP in September 2014.
I deal with homelessness, disrepair matters and property disputes under private, Legal Help and Legal Aid funding. I have experience of judicial review cases and have recently been involved in a homelessness case at the Court of Appeal.
