Trainee Solicitor

I joined Crane & Staples as a Trainee Solicitor in July 2018.

I am currently in my first seat in the Family department and assist with the following:

• Advising and assisting parents whose children are subject to Local Authority involvement
• Representing clients at PLO (pre-proceedings) meetings
• Disputes between parents in respect of arrangements for their children
• Attending court hearings in order to assist Counsel and clients

Prior to joining the firm, I graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a 2:1 in Law. I then completed the Legal Practice Course at Nottingham Law School, obtaining a commendation. During my time at Nottingham I was a committee member of the university’s law society and ran the society’s netball team. I combined my studies with various pro bono work at law firms and the university’s legal advice centre.

Outside the Office

Outside of work I like to keep fit by going to the gym and cycling. I enjoy socialising with friends and family. I also like to travel and have volunteered at a school and orphanage in Cape Town.
