Personal details

Full Name:

  • Housing Disrepair Claims
  • Housing Law


I joined AWH Solicitors in 2015 and began in the new claims team within the personal injury sector. Over the years I progressed and I am now a Legal Advisor in the Housing Disrepair department.

I consider Housing to be an interesting and broad area of the law, especially in light of the recent implementation of the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018.

I handle my own case-load of pre-litigated housing disrepair claims, taking my client’s from the very start of their claim to a point whereupon it is either settled or prepared for litigation.


What aspects of your job do you enjoy the most?

The most enjoyable aspect of my work is providing our clients with excellent service and obtaining a successful outcome to help and bring a little bit of added happiness to my clients lives whether it be a significant compensation figure and/or repairs carried out to their property.

I am keen to ensure that all of my clients have access to justice, particularly those that have little assistance or guidance in their day to day life.

I enjoy speaking to my clients about their issues and providing sound legal advice as to represent them to a high level and applying the Law to argue their case.
Why did you choose a career in the legal sector?

I chose law because it is intellectually challenging and personally fulfilling.
