I was born and raised in England. I went to law school in London and trained in one of London's leading criminal defense law firms.
I practiced criminal defense law for 7 years before moving to the United States. I handled all types of cases including murder, manslaughter, rape and drug offenses.
I specilaized in juvenile law for 3 years and also represented children facing anti social behavior orders.
It was always a dream of mine to live in the United States, so I sat the Washington State Bar exams in 2010 and qualifed as a Washington Attorney.
I faced some challenges with immigration and this lead to my desire to help those facing difficulties with the immigration laws in the United States.
I work closely with North West Immigration Rights Project and accept at least one trial a year on a pro bono basis.
