Sebastian Del Monte | Trainee

I joined Hodge Jones & Allen LLP in December 2014 as a new client advisor dealing predominantly with enquiries for the Civil Liberties team. In December 2015 I started my role as a paralegal supporting solicitors on a variety of cases including: actions against the police; deaths in custody claims & inquests; and claims against the Ministry of Defence. I started my period of recognised training at Hodge Jones & Allen LLP in September 2016 and am currently a trainee in the Personal Injury team supervised by Peter Todd.

Prior to joining Hodge Jones & Allen LLP I worked as a paralegal in one of the criminal law teams at GT Stewart Solicitors and as a new client caseworker for Fisher Meredith LLP. I also volunteered for various charities including the Howard League for Penal Reform’s legal team and Southwark Citizens Advice Bureau.
