Profile / Experience

I am proactive and passionate solicitor. I deal with a wide variety of cases under both private and legal aid funding.

My legal aid work includes assisting people who are: • homeless or threatened with homelessness; • threatened with possession of their home; • threatened with eviction from their home; • seeking repairs to rented accommodation where their landlord is refusing to carry out repairs and the disrepair poses a serious risk of harm to health or safety; • unlawfully evicted or threatened with unlawful eviction; • being harassed by a neighbour or their landlord and require an injunction to enable you live in your home safely; or • responding to an application for an antisocial behaviour injunction in the County Court.

In addition to the publicly funded (legal aid) work I carry out, I also assist privately paying clients. I handle disputes between neighbours, landlords and tenants with expertise in litigation.

I qualified as a solicitor in 2019 and prior to this undertook my training contract at Duncan Lewis with seats in housing, employment, and criminal defence matters.

I am part of the Housing Possession Court Duty Scheme; working as a duty solicitor in the Central London County Court.
