In brief

I have specialised in Court of Protection matters for over 10 years.

This work has covered all types of applications to the Court, including Statutory Wills and family proceedings. I am also experienced in general day to day management of client funds, from employing carers to deal with multi-disciplinary professionals, the buying and selling of properties and property adaptations, to investments and financial planning.

In work

Court of Protection work is very interesting. Working closely with clients, their families and a variety of professionals always means that no two days are the same. The work can be challenging, but very rewarding.

In the past

Originally from Leicester, I started my working life as a nurse before moving into the legal profession, where I have remained for over 25 years.

I relocated to Buckinghamshire in 1996 and began working with Harris Cartier (then Harris & Cartwright) in Slough. Initially I worked on fast track personal injury matters, before progressing to assisting with catastrophic personal injury claims. One of the reported catastrophic cases I worked on was Biesheuvel v Burrell (1998). This involved an award of £9.2 million which, at the time, was the largest compensation award in the UK for a spinal injury matter. Dashiell v Luttit (2000) was a catastrophic brain injury suffered by a minor which resulted in a final award of £5.25 million. I also worked on the Owen v Brown(2002) spinal injury claim, resulting in an award of £4.35 million and Douglas v Beldray (2008). This was a catastrophic brain injury matter following an accident at work and resulted in an award of £4.45 million.

In my spare time

I enjoy reading and spending time with my young granddaughter.
