How I can help you
I am a Trainee Solicitor in our Criminal Defence Team based at the Liverpool Walker House office.
My main responsibilities are to take initial client enquiries, to attend client appointments and to support clients both in Court and throughout the Court process, which I recognise can be an extremely stressful time.
I am currently a Probationary Police Station Accredited Representative. I attend Police Stations to represent clients that have been arrested and for voluntary interviews. I ensure clients rights are upheld and that they feel supported throughout. I recognise the Police Station can be an extremely daunting place for those who may have not been through this process before.
I work alongside Barristers and Solicitor Advocates in the preparation of Crown Court litigation. I prepare witness statements, attend court, liaise with the Prosecution and court staff when necessary.
I deal with vulnerable adults and children who may have various needs. I ensure that their needs are taken into consideration when protecting them and their rights.
A little about me
I am passionate about making a positive difference to people's lives and I take pride in being part of a rewarding process which can make an enormous difference to a client's future. It is important to me to be a voice for clients who feel that they cannot represent themselves by offering access to justice. I offer help and support to clients by being approachable and understanding to those who are going through a difficult, uncertain time and aim to always put client’s wishes and feelings first.
I graduated from Liverpool John Moore’s University with a 2:1 in my LLB Law Degree in 2020 before going on to study the LPC and Masters of Law.
I joined Broudie Jackson Canter in July 2021 and have experience in both the Crime and Family teams.
I joined the Criminal Defence team in December 2022, and I am currently working towards obtaining my Higher Rights of Audience and Police Station Accreditation.
I am currently Vice Chair of the Merseyside Junior Lawyers Division, where I assist in leading a committee of 17 other lawyers to create opportunities for young legal professionals, by providing them both educational and professional support to assist them to break into the legal profession across the city.
I am due to qualify as a Solicitor in March 2024.
