"Thank you for all your help and patience during the very difficult time I encountered. You are really making a positive difference in this world."
- Octavia HA v Costello – I acted for a deaf lady who suffered depression due to trauma and bereavement. The landlord, Octavia Housing Association, issued injunction proceedings due to the dogs barking excessively, after repeated complaints of noise nuisance from her neighbour. I argued the case under the Equality Act 2010, namely that the landlord, Octavia Housing Association, had not taken account of my client’s disability by failing to make reasonable adjustments in the form of sound proofing with additional carpeting, underlay and inner partition walls. Octavia made the requested adjustments to the property.
