Profile / Experience

I am a caseworker in the Family and Child Care department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors based in the City of London office. I joined the firm in March 2023 and report directly to supervising Solicitor, Marilyn Edwards.

My role within the team predominately involves assisting with the day-to-day case progressions and dealing with correspondence on a wide range of publicly funded (legal aid) matters and private client work. In particular, I am attending to clients, taking instructions, preparing cases, drafting documents including witness statements and processing evidence in cases concerning care proceedings and domestic abuse.

For those clients who cannot speak English as a first language, I can assist fluently in Dari/Farsi and have a native understanding of Pashto, Hindi/Urdu.

Prior to joining Duncan Lewis, I volunteered at Citizen Advice Bureau and have a vast amount of experience dealing with vulnerable clients. I believe when dealing with the sensitive nature of cases involving family and children one needs to have a sympathetic understanding of clients' needs.

Academically, I have always been intrigued by the concept of family law and how it relates to our society today. I have studied both family and child law modules as part of my Bachelor's and as one of my LPC electives. I later completed my Master's dissertation in the niche area of Surrogacy, this has all vastly developed my knowledge in the area of law. I am thrilled to continue to immerse myself in the family sector.
