Expertise and key strengths
I represent claimants in a wide range of cases against the police from wrongful arrest to breaches of the Data Protection Act. Even if similar circumstances arise, each claimant I represent has endured an individual, negative experience with the police and I endeavour to understand the effects this has had on the claimant and seek compensation and justice for them.
I began working in an administrative role for a local law firm which specialised in personal injury and medical negligence in 2012. I have been working for Hudgell Solicitors since 2015, firstly in the New Claims Department where I advised clients on whether their personal injury or civil liberties claims were ones which we could assist with, before moving to handle cases against the Police in the Civil Liberties Department.
Proudest professional achievement
I am proud of all the work carried out in the Civil Liberties department. In particular, obtaining settlements in cases where liability is denied. Knowing you have been able to attain compensation and justice for a client in a disputed case is a real sense of achievement.
