I am a solicitor specialising in dispute resolution and currently working in the Butcher & Barlow’s head office in Bury alongside our managing partner Anthony Higham. I advise on all types of civil disputes and litigation including;

  • Clinical Negligence
  • Commercial Disputes
  • Contentious Probate
  • Debt Recovery
  • Landlord and Tenant Issues
  • Personal Injury

Having studied Law as an undergraduate at Lancaster University obtaining a 2:1 classification, I then completed the Legal Practice Course at BPP University Liverpool obtaining a Distinction. I joined Butcher & Barlow in the summer of 2017 as a paralegal and started my training contract in September 2018. I qualified as a solicitor in September 2020.

I endeavour to provide clients with a quality and honest service and in a friendly and approachable manner.

Outside of work one of my biggest passions is to travel, having travelled to South East Asia, South America and across mainland Europe in the past few years. Another big hobby of mine is football, regularly playing 5 aside with my friends and following my team Liverpool FC.

What our clients say

If you continue to give accurate, clear and politely confident advice such as you have given to me rather than all the "if, buts and maybes " advice I have experienced for many years you will make a fine solicitor and your clients will respect and value you.
