So the saga continues. Westminster has finally broken its silence after what seemed to be, on its part, a longstanding...
I joined Hodge, Jones and Allen as a housing paralegal in April 2015. I have 6 years’ experience as a litigation paralegal in a variety of organisations from in-house legal departments to private commercial practice and more recently legally aided practice.
I worked as a housing law paralegal for almost 3 years in which time I developed my expertise in homelessness matters which is my specialism. I am a tenacious individual who is passionate to assist the vulnerable who require legal representation to challenge patently wrongful decisions made in respect of their housing matter which in turn affects their human right to keep a roof over their head. I am also keen to assist those who have been declined such assistance, as I enjoy the challenge of thinking outside of the box to come up with novel solutions to assist my clients. I have run my own caseload and I have previously assisted in developing and managing the housing department at my former post at the Shepherds Bush office at Duncan Lewis which indicative of my industrious attitude. I am also able to assist clients with possession matters in respect of section 8 and section 21 notices.
I commenced my first seat as a trainee in the housing department in September 2016. I have recently provided training seminars to local authorities and other organisations in relation to homelessness as a trainee.
I moved to the crime department in March 2017 to commence my second seat in Crime. I am assisting in a range of criminal matters including extradition, fraud, sexual assault, rape, assault, murder and manslaughter under the supervision of Edward Jones and Ruth Harris.
