“I have worked for many years in protecting and representing domestic violence victims. I work closely with domestic violence organisations such as Trident Reach, Women’s Aid and Derbyshire W.I.S.H.
Many of my clients have been bullied, manipulated and have gone through extreme conditions due to their perpetrator. I do not allow that to continue and provide my client’s with the tools and advice to break the cycle of domestic violence.”
“After moving to the West Midlands, I had the daunting task of creating new connections and friends. However, joining the BLS was the best first step in getting to know everyone in the area. I had such a warm welcome and great support from many I now call friends. Being part of the council allows you to give back to the legal community and take part in opportunities that will build your skills.”
