Expertise and key strengths
As a representative for Victims of violent crime, I understand that it is never something that you think will happen to you and therefore the thought of instructing a solicitor as a result of such criminality can be a fearful and daunting experience. I pride myself on my empathy with my clients and believe that no matter what the crime, each of my clients is different and that there are no set rules for how to come to terms and cope with such an incident, or in a lot of cases, a period of abuse. From single assaults to years of child abuse and domestic violence, nothing makes me prouder than being able to find some justice for my clients and to secure compensation for them to assist with their future.
After completing my A Levels and briefly working for a major supermarket chain, I joined Hudgell solicitors and found my love of law. I have been with the firm since April 2013 and have specialised within the Criminal Injuries Team since it was first founded.
Proudest professional achievement
My proudest achievement would have to be qualifying from an assistant to a Claims handler and representing my clients personally, closely followed by attending my first Appeal hearing in Manchester to defend my clients claim when an award of compensation was disproportionate, given the injuries sustained.
