Sioned is an Associate Solicitor within the housing team. She qualified as a solicitor after completing a Legal Aid Agency sponsored training contract in areas of social welfare law. On completion of her training she moved to Edwards Duthie Solicitors to practice within their community law team. She developed strong advocacy skills by appearing weekly as duty solicitor to defend tenant’s housing possession claims and developed working relationships with local charities to represent the homeless and vulnerable.
Sioned has diverse experience in all aspects of housing law with particular expertise in cases concerning human rights, public law and discrimination. She remains committed to legal aid and social justice by providing high quality legal service, regardless of her client’s means.
Sioned is regularly instructed by women’s charities to represent their service users who have been affected by domestic violence or trafficking. This often involves homeless appeals to the county court on a point of law and issuing urgent claims for judicial review to protect her client’s rights. She takes a keen interest in the developing law to protect this client base.
