Profile / Experience
I am a Solicitor in the Actions Against Public Authorities department.
I have a mixed case load and I regularly advise clients on complaints and civil claims against the police, prison service, probation service and the home office.
I have settled cases both at the prea-action stage and post-issue stage including cases for assault & battery, false imprisonment, misfeasance and negligence.
I have experience in representing bereaved families by preparing cases for inquest proceedings, including those touching upon deaths in custody.
During my training contract I completed a seat in actions against public authorities department, the community care department and the mental health department.
I am a Member of the Law Society Mental Health Accreditation Scheme, which entitled me to represent clients before the Mental Health Tribunal (First Tier). I have successfully challenged multiple clients’ detentions under the Mental Health Act at the First Tier Mental Health Tribunal and Hospital Managers Hearings.
I am fluent in Polish.
