Expertise and key strengths
Client care, trust and integrity are my key strengths. Being honest, open and available to my client’s provides a confident strong relationship. I pride myself on being able to speak to client’s in an approachable, easy to understand manner. My specialism is in helping those who have suffered sexual, physical and child abuse including historic abuse cases. I do not over promise and am able to advise clients realistically to achieve their end results whether this be to settle promptly, undergo Rehabilitation or obtain an interim payment.
I have been with Hudgell Solicitors since August 2014 following a number of years dedicated solely to road traffic accidents with Minster Law. Prior to this I specialised in family law within the Leeds area involving domestic violence, divorce, private and public law children matters. Recently I have also taken on cases pro bono for victims of the Manchester bombing as one of the panel firms through the Manchester Law Society.
Proudest professional achievement
My role can be extremely varied from what can seem either a simple car accident to a fatal criminal injury where a loved one has died as a result of criminal action. I take great pride in being able to help all my client’s each day. No one wants to instruct a solicitor and I find it an achievement to hear from a previous client with a friend or family recommendation.
Victoria has been brilliant. She is always quick to respond and keeps me well informed, phoning me to give me the heads up when I’m to receive a letter and explain its contender before it arrives. One day I got a call out of the blue from her just to see how I was doing.
I can’t speak highly enough of the work that Victoria and Hudgells have done for me.
There has been some media interest in my case and the fact that Victoria was prepared to make a six-hour round trip to support me shows how dedicated they are. I am so glad I chose the right firm to represent me. Brilliant, I couldn’t ask for more.
