Agreements Between Couples

Childcare Solicitors

Divorce Solicitors

Domestic Violence Solicitors

I graduated from Northumbria University in July 2017 with a First Class Honours M(Law) Exempting Degree. This degree incorporated the Legal Practice Course and a Masters qualification. During my time at Northumbria University I took part in the Student Law Office in the Employment Law department gaining valuable practical experience before the completion of my degree.

In September 2017 I joined Ben Hoare Bell as a Trainee Solicitor. My first seat was in the Family Law department where I primarily worked on public family law cases specialising in pre-proceedings and care proceedings. I also gained experience in private family law representing clients on applications for non-molestation orders in domestic abuse situations.

In March 2018 I transferred to the Crime department to assist in Crown Court matters working closely with barristers to assist in ongoing proceedings relating to a wide range of offences.

In September 2018 I moved to the Clinical Negligence department to gain experience of civil proceedings.

I have now returned to the Family Law department to undertake the final seat of my training.
