I joined SEN Legal in March 2020 as a paralegal, having held roles in education and family law previously. I work alongside the solicitors on cases, liaising with clients, Local Authorities and the Tribunal, and undertaking various tasks, such as drafting documents. I became a Trainee Solicitor in January 2021, and have also recently completed my LLM in Legal Practice with the University of Law in London.
Prior to pursuing a career in law, I worked in industry and then took a prolonged family break to raise 3 children with SEND. I returned to work in 2016, initially volunteering with Coram Children’s Legal Centre, where I developed a detailed knowledge of both education and family law. The decision to specialise in Education Law was an easy one, allowing me to support parents and children / young people to achieve the education they deserve, while also drawing on my experience as a SEND parent.
