Having completed my Graduate Diploma in Law in 2016 and my Legal Practice Course in 2017, I joined Hodge Jones and Allen as a trainee solicitor in September 2018. I am currently in my first seat in the Family Law department.
Whilst pursuing my degree, I volunteered as a caseworker for the Habeas Corpus Project, a charity that specialised in challenging unlawful immigration detention. I also have experience as a volunteer caseworker at Hackney Community Law Centre where I assisted the lead housing solicitor in providing free legal advice to residents of Hackney and surrounding boroughs.
Prior to joining HJA, I worked as a paralegal for McMillan Williams Solicitors in their Civil Litigation department, with a particular focus on Actions Against the Police.
I am passionate about social welfare law and working to ensure that effective access to justice for those who need it is not merely a fiction paid lip service to but a practical and concrete reality.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, cycling and music, having played guitar for a number of years. I also enjoy travel and film photography and particularly enjoy when I can combine the two. I am a member of Young Legal Aid Lawyers and attend meetings regularly.
