I joined Smith Partnership in 2012 working as a Paralegal in the Crime Department in Leicester. Prior to this I dealt with mental health cases as part of HM Courts and Tribunals Service.
I am a graduate of Combined Social Sciences at The University of Lincoln, though I went on to complete my Graduate Diploma in Law and later the Legal Practice Course at Nottingham Law School.
I carried out my training contract with the firm and qualified as a solicitor in July 2017. I appear regularly at the Magistrates’ Court and specialise in advising clients in relation to matters of serious crime and regulatory offences.
I also joined the Business Defence team upon qualification specifically dealing with various types of fraud cases.
Last year I was able to take a substantial role in the successful acquittal of a client prosecuted in connection with a multi-million-pound fraud from the Bermudian government.
