The Official Solicitor & Public Trustee
I came to law later in life having worked in retail and catering whilst starting my family. I was very privileged to train at Bindman and Partners and was their first trainee to undertake a part time training contract (where you complete the LPC whilst working full time). On qualifying I moved to Hodge Jones and Allen where I headed their mental health work and then moved to Guile Nicholas Solicitors specialising in MHA 1983 and Court of Protection work alongside some community care, housing and other matters. I joined the Official Solicitor’s office in July 2010 as a lawyer in the Healthcare and Welfare Team, moving across to the Civil Litigation Team initially on a temporary basis in 2019 and then moved into the permanent senior lawyer, civil litigation post at the beginning of December 2020.
