I am a trainee solicitor in the crime and family departments of Watson Woodhouse. I completed my law degree at Durham University and obtained a first class honours degree. I then went on to achieve distinctions in both my legal practice course and master’s degree at the University of Law. My masters focused on the evaluation of alternative dispute resolution methods in family cases.
I have always had a keen interest in both criminal and family law throughout my studies. For example, in 2016 I spent one month in California whereby I was given the opportunity to work on a death penalty case, and I have also marshalled at Durham Crown Court whereby I spent time in the judge’s chambers.
I am currently in the process of obtaining my police station accreditation, and have so far had involvement in a number of cases, ranging from low value theft to rape.
