I graduated from Cambridge University (Robinson College), with a degree in Geography before obtaining an LLB from the University of Law. I then spent 18 months working at Surrey Law Centre in Guildford before joining Gordon Dadds as a trainee in September 2011. I now work in the Private Client Department and am a trustee of the Gordon Dadds Charitable Foundation. I am a student member of STEP and currently studying the STEP Certificate and Diploma in Trusts and Estates.
When not advising clients, I can be found playing the bassoon, swimming, boating on the Helford River or watching London Irish play rugby.
What is your most interesting legal experience?
The 18 months I spent working as a volunteer in Surrey Law Centre before starting my legal career as a trainee, as it taught me the importance of treating everyone with equal respect, irrespective of the circumstances. I dealt directly with homeless and disadvantaged clients and also organised a fundraising dinner in the House of Lords which raised over £10,000 for the Law Centre.
What is your career highlight?
My most notable professional experience so far was acting in the transfer of a collection of antiquarian artefacts to an overseas national museum (with Hugh Elder and Deborah Evans) and watching it being packed up.
