I studied Law at the University of Liverpool, graduating in 2017. I then went on to study an MA in International Relations at King’s College London the following year.

I joined Smith Partnership as a Paralegal within the Dispute Resolution Department in November 2018.

My role involves supporting the solicitors in my team, who deal with a range of contentious civil disputes.

Outside of work, I enjoy playing football every weekend and spending time with friends and family. I’m also a big fan of live music, especially festivals!

I joined Smith Partnership in July 2018. I completed part of my training with a firm in Nottinghamshire and transferred to Smith Partnership to gain experience in family and childcare matters.

I assist Elizabeth Handford on her childcare matters; we represent parents whose children have social services involvement.

Outside of work, I spend a lot of time in Nottingham meeting up with friends from university. I also enjoy trying – and generally failing - to go the gym regularly.
