Expertise and key strengths
Over the course of my career, I have dealt with numerous sexual abuse cases, many of which were high-value and fatal cases under the CICA’s scheme. I have also dealt with claims for those who have been the victim of a violent assault which has resulted in various physical and psychological injuries, and have represented clients at Appeal hearings at the CICA Tribunal.
In September 2013, I joined Hudgell Solicitors following five years at a law practice in Leeds. Having obtained a degree in Law at the University of Birmingham, I went on to complete the Legal Practice Course at BPP in Leeds.. Having been with Hudgell Solicitors for four years, I have recently begun a training contract to further my knowledge and expertise.
Proudest Professional Achievement
I have successfully represented clients at the CICA Tribunal who have been victims of sexual abuse as a child, and whose claims had been turned down by the CICA. I am also proud that I have been able to obtain a training contract with Hudgell Solicitors, fulfilling a long-term professional and personal goal.
Qualifications and professional memberships

Ms Pottock, who has recently taken over my case, is very thorough and supportive. It has been a pleasure corresponding with her.
Hudgell Solicitors dealt with our claim in a very courteous and friendly manner, especially Samantha Pottock, whose care and support was professional and exceptional.
