Get to know me...

I joined Goughs in January 2023 as a trainee solicitor after studying Law at Southampton University and then working for RWK Goodman, I have a very personal service skill set so decided to pursue a career in family law and therefore completed my LPC in June 2021. I’m very approachable and work with people helping them through difficult times.

I always like to remain professional and believe you should be very transparent and cohesive in your approach. I remain clear in the expectations of what is possible and always work with the client’s best interests in mind

Within family law I enjoy advocacy and court based work, I have the long term goal of becoming a family court judge. I like to actively see the difference my work can make to a client.

I specialise in family law. I focus on divorce and finance work. I also undertake child act work.

My greatest achievement

My greatest achievement is that I did my LPC and secured my training contract during the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021. I did this whilst working from my parents house and really value being able to have spent that extended period of time with my family before moving away to start my legal career. I’m proud of being able to progress my career along with having the drive and motivation to complete my LPC through the pandemic.

What I like about working for Goughs

Since joining Goughs everyone has been really open, warm and welcoming and all saying positive things about the culture here at Goughs. After being in the South West for 4 years I was set on wanting to work for Goughs as a well know firm with an established family law team. There is a wide variety of work the lawyers within the team do and a great opportunity to learn specialist knowledge from them.
