Background

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.

Education

  • University of Manchester - LLB

Motivation

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.
