I am a Chartered Legal Executive and Housing Specialist within the Social Welfare Department. I joined Minton Morrill Solicitors in November 2017. I act for clients under legal aid funding and on a private basis.
I have specialised in housing law for over ten years and completed my training with another local firm.
Throughout my career I have acted in a wide range of housing matters including defending possession proceedings, challenging the local authority in relation to their duties to homeless clients, anti-social behaviour injunctions, harassment and unlawful eviction. I have a particular expertise in relation to housing disrepair cases and assisting tenants to challenge their landlords over unacceptable housing conditions.
I also offer advice, representation and advocacy to defendants facing eviction through the Leeds County Court duty possession scheme, of which I am Deputy Manager.
