I joined Smith Partnership as a trainee solicitor in November 2010, after successfully completing the Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice course at Nottingham Law School.
In October 2012, I joined the Dispute Resolution Department as a qualified solicitor and three years later in 2015 I was promoted to Associate.
I specialise in contentious trusts and probate cases. Since 2016, I have headed up the Contentious Trusts & Probate Department, and am a member of the Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists.
While this is my speciality, I have a wider experience in civil and commercial litigation, including contractual disputes, property litigation, professional negligence claims, landlord and tenant disputes, and libel and harassment actions.
When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time supporting Leicester City F.C.
