I find my job very rewarding as my fundamental purpose is to help clients resolve their legal problems. I take pride in my ability to build a rapport with my clients, which allows me to understand their needs and ensure client satisfaction.
People turn to us at vulnerable times in their lives and when they need people with knowledge of the law to stand by their side and support them. The matter we are dealing with can put huge pressure on their lives and we can hopefully take that pressure for them, and get a result which improves their situation.

Significant Cases

I have been proud to be involved in the representation of people through the Windrush Compensation Scheme. I have spoken to clients to gain a full understanding of what happened to them and how it affected their lives. People lost their jobs, homes and access to things such as healthcare and education due to what happened and some were wrongfully detained and deported, or prevented from returning to the UK. It is rewarding to be representing these people and working to ensure the scheme provides suitable compensation.
