I joined Watermans in July 2016 as a Trainee Solicitor and aim to be fully qualified by July 2018. I completed my undergraduate degree and Diploma in Professional Legal Practice at the University of Dundee. My role as a Trainee Solicitor primarily consists of dealing with pre-litigation cases, in particular Road Traffic Accidents. As I gain more experience, I will have the opportunity to expand my knowledge and practice in other areas of personal injury law and work within the court team. Throughout my studies, I took the opportunity to broaden my skill set in relation to client care by undertaking a number of volunteer roles and also by working with the Scottish Legal Complaints Commission.
The best part of my job is knowing that I am assisting clients who are experiencing genuine difficulties and being able to communicate with my clients on a day to day basis.
Outside of work, I exercise regularly and enjoy long distance running and cycling. I also love to socialise with family and friends, meeting new people and attending music festivals and concerts.
