I joined Fieldfisher as a Solicitor in September 2019. I have considerable experience in managing complex Deputyships and Personal Injury Trusts for both adults and children who have sustained severe brain injuries. I have specialised in Court of Protection work for the last 6 years, having managed a varied caseload as a Senior Paralegal prior to training as a Solicitor and qualifying in March 2019.

My experience includes: 

  • Dealing with the ongoing management of complex Deputyships, both pre and post-settlement; 
  • Making applications to the Court of Protection for the appointment of professional Deputies; 
  • Managing the purchase of properties and subsequent high value adaptation projects; 
  • Working with case managers to build complex care and therapy packages to support clients to return from hospitals and rehabilitation placements to living in the community; 
  • Advising lay Deputies on Court of Protection applications and ongoing Deputyship management; 
  • Establishing Personal Injury Trusts to manage settlement awards; 
  • Assisting with the preparation of expert witness statements on Court of Protection costs in medical negligence and serious injury cases.

I enjoy working collaboratively with my clients, their families, litigation lawyers and case managers to support my clients in their recovery following life changing injuries. I have a particular interest in helping the families of children who have suffered injuries as a result of birth trauma.

I read Law at the University of Leeds before completing my LPC at the College of Law, York. Prior to joining Fieldfisher, I worked in one of the country's leading Court of Protection teams and was a litigation support specialist for the London team of a national department. I a member of the Court of Protection Practitioners' Association (CoPPA) and the Professional Deputies Forum.
