I am a caseworker within the Community Care Law team. I joined Martin Searle Solicitors in January 2015 having completed the Post Graduate Diploma in Law at the University of Brighton.
I have particular expertise in:
I advise a wide range of clients on Community Care Law matters, helping clients with Deputyship applications, registering Lasting Powers of Attorney and advising on planning and paying for care. I love assisting people at stressful times and helping them to resolve difficult situations.
I graduated with 2:1 in American Studies and English from University of Keele. I graduated with Distinction from the Graduate Diploma in Law at University of Brighton in August 2014. I won the OUP Prize for best first year Postgraduate Diploma in Law student, the LLP Prize for best performance in the law of contract module, and the Prize for best second year Postgraduate Diploma in Law student and Westgate Chambers Prize for best performance in the criminal law module.
I am an Associate member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) I completed the modules for Graduate Fast Track Diploma during summer 2017, and look forward to completing the work experience for this award in 2018.
I have a wide range of administrative experience having worked for 18 years in university administration at Goldsmiths College London, Royal Free and University College London Medical School and, most recently, Brighton and Sussex Medical School, where I organised medical student practical exams.
I have a young son, Lenny, and spend weekends trying to drag him away from Minecraft and the PS3 into the fresh air. I love living by the sea and enjoy taking Lenny rock-pooling in Ovingdean and throwing stones into the sea. I love cooking (and eating!), reading The New Yorker, and watching American crime, law and political dramas. I am a part-time runner and am hoping (somewhat optimistically) to run a half marathon soon.
