Hayley has several years of experience of personal injury work, including complex high-value brain and spinal injury cases.

Hayley also carried out training seats in the medical negligence team, where she assisted with birth injury claims and cases of missed diagnosis, and the criminal defence team where she worked on a range of matters including Extinction Rebellion (XR) and Black Lives Matter (BLM) protest cases.
Hayley regularly represents clients with disabilities, learning difficulties and complex medical conditions. She has developed a successful practice representing clients with rare conditions (such as narcolepsy and PKU) in PIP Appeals at the Social Security and Child Support Appeals Tribunal.
Hayley has a particular interest in sexual abuse claims and is a member of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers (ACAL). She also regularly represents survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault in data protection and misuse of private information claims. Prior to joining Hodge Jones & Allen Hayley was a Legal Fellow at International Justice Mission in Manila, the Philippines, where she worked on the criminal prosecutions of perpetrators of online child sexual abuse.
Hayley has advocated on human rights issues by writing for the website ‘EachOther’ (previously ‘RightsInfo’) and sits on the Law Society’s Human Rights Committee as the Junior Lawyers’ Division Observer. In 2015 Hayley spent six months as an intern at the human rights charity Reprieve, where she worked on a resentencing project based in Malawi involving prisoners who had previously been facing the death penalty.
