I am professional, efficient, assertive, hardworking and a perfectionist. I have a good sense of humour and I am approachable.
Having completed the Legal Practice Course at the University of Sheffield, I joined Smith Partnership as a Paralegal in 2001. I went on to complete my training contract with the firm and I qualified as a solicitor in 2004.
I was made an Associate in 2009 and have since successfully qualified as a Higher Court Advocate in both criminal and civil advocacy.
I am police station accredited as well as being a member of the duty solicitor scheme.
I specialise in criminal law and I head up our Crown Court team in Leicester. I appear regularly at the Crown Court and my case load includes a variety of serious matters including violent crime, sexual offences, robbery, drug offences and fraud.
I also manage the department which involves submitting bills to the LAA / clients, managing staff and also liaising with other organisations to include Courts / and court staff, CPS and the police amongst many others.
