I am currently a fee earner in the Casualty (Personal Injury) department of a global law firm in Manchester.
I started out in the legal world in 2005 as a part time Personal Injury Legal Secretary, then a Family Law Legal Secretary, whilst studying Criminology at the University of Liverpool. After University I moved to London and worked full time as a Criminal Law Legal Secretary, before moving back to Manchester and embarking on a Law and Practice course with CILEx (Chartered Institute of Legal Executives).
In 2014 I took the role of Legal Assistant, gaining my own case load of Claimant Personal Injury claims and in 2016 I moved to Defendant Personal Injury as a Paralegal, before being promoted to Litigation Executive.
I currently handle a case load of over 80 personal injury claims and have mentored a Legal Apprentice who is now my Paralegal.
My previous mentoring experiences via other organisations have been positive and I'm keen to help mentees in whatever way I can. Whether it be discussions about available routes into law, help with getting work experience, interview advice or early career issues.
I am here to help and I hope to hear from you!
