The Housing department at Hodge Jones & Allen has, this spring, established a new partnership with the nearby University College London Centre for Access to Justice to advise Haringey residents about their housing rights.
I joined Hodge Jones & Allen in 2014 as a Legal Help Advisor with previous experience in personal injury law. I assisted new clients with their matters and providing client care for the housing team. I have since moved to the role of paralegal in the housing department specialising in disrepair, homelessness, possession and judicial review cases.
I am dedicated to providing the best possible result for each client whilst maintaining a level of professionalism and understanding to each client’s situation.
My work in the area of legal aid has allowed me to help those with limited access to justice by providing legal assistance where they may not have been able to receive it before.
Outside of the firm I participate in musician work, playing guitar and a number of instruments in blues, folk, rock, metal, soul and acoustic bands. Where possible I enjoy fund raising for charity by holding music events. In 2015 I helped raise £1,200 with HJA at the law rocks battle of the bands.
Before embarking on my legal career I worked as a professional chef in a number of kitchens and still enjoy cooking today. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, particularly in Asia and North America, and playing rugby union & squash.
