Profile / Experience
I am a Trainee Solicitor in the Childcare department at Duncan Lewis having joined the firm in July 2019. I work under the supervision of director Alia Lewis with a team of solicitors, trainees and caseworkers.
My role as a Trainee Solicitor involves assisting the team with the day-to-day case progression and client or third-part correspondence on a number of childcare legal matters. I have also developed my own caseload and have represented client's both at court and during the pre-proceedings Public Law Outline process.
I obtained my LLB Law at Brunel University and completed a dissertation investigating the child protection system as well as modules in family law and children and the law. I also have experience working with the local authority as part of a professional placement, assisting with care proceedings matters as well as undertaking my own caseload of private law Section 7 and Section 37 reports.
I was a Caseworker at the firm prior to commencing my Training Contract in February 2021 and I am due to complete the Legal Practice Course in Summer 2021.
