Profile

I initially joined McMillan Williams in 2013 as a paralegal in the firm's Criminal Litigation Department, assisting the Head of Department. During my time as a paralegal I worked on a variety of cases, ranging from simple motoring offences to more complex drugs, violence, fraud and sexual offence cases.

In 2014, I left McMillan Williams to complete my LPC. Upon successful completion of this course, I re-joined the firm as a trainee solicitor and qualified as a criminal solicitor in 2017.

In terms of academic achievement, I have successfully completed my BA in English and American Literature, my Graduate Diploma in Law and my Legal Practice Course, with a distinction in Advanced Criminal Litigation. I have further attained an LLB from the University of Law.

I am a fully accredited police station representative and am able to represent clients that have been arrested and taken to the police station and those who have been invited to attend the police station for a voluntary interview.

I also regularly represent clients who have been asked to attend interviews under caution at their local Council offices or Job centre in relation to allegations of fraud, including benefit fraud.

I have experience in a wide variety of cases at both Magistrate and Crown Court level.

If you require assistance with any criminal investigation or proceedings, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
