Profile / Experience
I am a Director in the Housing department at Duncan Lewis, based in the Leicester office. I joined the firm in January 2020.
I have extensive expertise in housing law, and I litigate across a wide range of housing issues including, but not limited to; matters involving homelessness; possession matters, including cases involving rent arrears and anti-social behaviour; injunctions under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014; breach/committal proceedings; unlawful eviction; and cases involving disrepair.
I have extensive experience in dealing with a variety of cases in the county courts, spanning the last twelve years. I act for both landlords and tenants, which allows me to represent clients effectively thanks to the insight, understanding and knowledge I have developed through tackling issues from both sides. I have a particular interest in handling cases of anti-social behaviour that involve mental health aspects.
In the three years prior to joining Duncan Lewis I broadened my expertise by branching out into other areas of general civil litigation, including breach of contract cases and property disputes.
I pride myself on providing an excellent service to clients by having an understanding attitude, giving practical advice, and achieving the best possible result.
