I joined Gotelee as a Trainee Solicitor in July 2019. My first seat is within the criminal law department and intend to specialise in criminal law once I am qualified.
I completed my law degree and the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at Huddersfield University as part of a Master of Law and Practice Course. I graduated in 2016 with a first in my degree and a distinction in the LPC and received the award for the “best MLP student” in the last year of my degree. I moved to Ipswich after university and initially started working as a legal assistant in a wealth management firm and before I joined Gotelee Solicitors I was working as a legal secretary/paralegal in the family law department at a firm in Stowmarket.
Outside of work I try to get back into nature as much as possible by going for walks or going camping with my partner. I love to cook and have a keen interest in yoga.
