What I do

I joined Smith Partnership in November 2017 as a Trainee Solicitor. I graduated from Nottingham Trent University with an LLB degree in Law and completed the Legal Practice Course at the University of the West of England.

As a trainee, I move around different departments within the firm. My current training seat is in the Private Client Department, where I deal with and assist in all aspects of estate and trust administration, and Court of Protection Applications for appointment of Deputies. I also advise on lifetime estate planning, including Inheritance Tax mitigation; and assist clients in the preparation of Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney. 

Prior to joining the firm, I worked for HMCTS and enjoyed a successful career in translation.

I am fluent in the Polish language which is my native tongue and maintain strong links with the local Polish community.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, learning new languages, and keeping fit.
