Profile / Experience
I am a Caseworker in the Family Department at the Birmingham office of Duncan Lewis. I joined the firm in 2019 and am gaining experience of both public and private law family matters. I work under the supervision of Director Krina Parmar alongside a team of solicitors, trainees and caseworkers.
As a caseworker my role primarily involves assisting the team with the daily case progressions as well as client and third-party correspondence on a number of family law matters. I work effectively under pressure, drafting statements and applications for presentation before the court and balance numerous tasks in order to provide and excellent standard of client care. Many of the clients I assist are vulnerable; this includes those who have substance abuse problems and victims of domestic violence.
Prior to joining Duncan Lewis I was employed as a paralegal assisting in a wide range of pre-proceedings and care proceedings. I have previously undertaken legal and voluntary work placements including volunteering for the Personal Support Unit and Citizens Advice Bureau.
