What made you go into law?

I had spent 12 years working as a Legal Secretary working in the field of medical negligence law before joining a regional law firm as a Court of Protection Secretary.  My role progressed and I became a Legal Assistant before later becoming a Paralegal specialising in Court of Protection work. 

When did you join Boyes Turner and what is your role?

I joined Boyes Turner in January 2022 as a Senior Paralegal in the Court of Protection Team.  My role is assisting to manage the property and financial affairs of clients who have suffered often significant injuries as a result of medical negligence or personal injury who as a result do not have the mental capacity to deal with these aspects of their lives themselves.  I am responsible for ensuring that clients’ funds are applied appropriately to meet their needs both now and in the future.  

What do you like most about/what are you most looking forward to in your new role?

Working in a Court of Protection team is extremely varied and challenging.  It is not often that any two days are the same. 

What I enjoy the most about working in the field of Court of Protection is the sense that I have made a positive difference to the lives of clients and their families who have suffered life changing events and that by helping and supporting them, their lives have been made that little bit better. 

What do you like to do outside of work?

Living in the Kent countryside means that I have beautiful scenic walks on my doorstep and I enjoy meeting up with friends for long walks with a good pub lunch being the reward at the end! 

I have a Great Dane called Dougal who is a mischievous cheeky boy but is the biggest softie, despite his size!

What is your favourite food?

I have thought long and hard about this question and there are just far too many to choose from!
