I am the Director of Regulation, People and Standards ultimately responsible for overall operational control of all aspects of the Practice.
A qualified Solicitor, I joined MW in order to satisfy my appetite for a fresh and exciting new challenge, having run my own firm for over 10 years. My area of specialism is Mental Health, I focused specifically on the area of ‘Mental Incapacity and Advance Directives’ in my Masters Degree Thesis.
I have been an Accredited Member of the Mental Health Tribunal Scheme since 1999, one of the youngest Mental Health Tribunal Judges in the Country and currently sit as a Tribunal Judge in the First-Tier Tribunal (Mental Health). I am one of only 3 people in the country who have been appointed to sit on Mental Health Tribunals in dual jurisdictions. In addition, I sit as a Magistrate, in the South East London Local Justice Area where I sit on Criminal and Family matters.
I am also McMillan William's Training Principal, overseeing the recruitment, training and development of our Paralegals and Trainee Solicitors.
