Industrial Disease – Chester

I joined the firm in 2011 and specialise in Industrial Disease, Professional Negligence and Property. Before joining Birchall Blackburn I worked as a legal researcher in the Northern Ireland Commission where I contributed to the publication of the Bail in Criminal Proceedings Consultation, which has paved the way for Bail Legislation in the province.

Qualifications and professional achievements: LLB (Hons), Legal Practice Course, member of Junior Lawyers Division North West.

How did you end up working for a law firm? I wanted a career in which I could make a difference to other people, one which allowed me the opportunity to interact with clients and make a positive change to their lives. I wanted a challenging and varied career. A career in law met all the criteria so it seemed the perfect choice.

Unusual fact: I can uncork a bottle of champagne with a sword.
