Becoming the Women’s Lawyer has been my goal for several years. With the recent changes in the legal system and to legal aid entitlement, which affect women’s issues in the main, I decided this was the time to offer legal advice and support to those most in need.
I was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 1998 by The Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn, after graduating with a Masters in International and Comparative Law. I began lecturing Law at the University of London in 1999, and continue to do so as a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Westminster.
With over fifteen years experience of lecturing and advising clients on varying areas of law I have set up the legal consultancy, The Women’s Lawyer (TWL), with the fundamental aim of assisting women with an affordable and approachable service. Speaking from both personal and professional experience, I am in a position to help those whom may otherwise not seek the advice or guidance of a lawyer.
It is my genuine belief with the right guidance women can avoid numerous problems such as with their employer/husband/partner/landlord/tenant. Indeed in this regard, I shall be giving a series of lectures designed to equip women with the legal know how in dealing with varying civil matters from divorce, property and employment rights.
