My Professional Background
I joined Attwaters in July 2007 and am now an Associate of the firm. I have vast experience in dealing with personal injury claims and whilst I predominantly work for Claimants, I have undertaken some private client work defending claims too. Most recently I have taken an interest in Civil Actions against the Police and successfully recovered compensation for clients who have suffered false imprisonment, wrongful arrest, malicious prosecution and assaults at the hands of the Police. I also have some experience of dealing with abuse claims.
I attended two Catholic Schools in Essex; St. Francis in Maldon and St. John Payne in Chelmsford. I have a higher diploma in Law from Anglia Ruskin University and an LLB Honours in Legal Practice, which I studied via distance learning with CILEx.
I have worked within the personal injury field since I was 18, having started working for a local firm immediately after leaving school. I worked in the City for a short period and whilst I miss the buzz and the social life that comes with a City firm, I am far more comfortable working for an organisation whose interests are primarily the client.
Achievements / Accreditations

I was born in Harlow and have lived in Essex all of my life. My parents bought a house in Spain and whilst they are waiting for it to be re-built, they are squatting with me and my labradoodle, Truffles Dubouie (named by my brother). I love to eat chocolate and drink fizzy drinks. I enjoy shopping and travelling; I have a fear of foxes after a bad experience of being chased by one not too long ago. I would very much like to be the Queen and if I was on a desert island, I would want my mum as my companion – she keeps me sane!
