Nicola joined Chambers in October 2017 after completing a 10-month pupillage under the supervision of Deputy Head of Chambers, Patrick Cassidy.
After completing her BPTC Nicola took a gap year, travelling extensively in Australia, New Zealand and south-east Asia. She took advantage of her time abroad by completing placements with various private Chambers as well as a period working with the Department of Public Prosecutions in New South Wales, Australia.
Upon her return to the UK and prior to commencing Pupillage Nicola worked with a number of large Personal Injury firms, firstly as a Paralegal then subsequently spending a number of years as an in-house advocate specialising in credit hire and personal injury.
Nicola practices in civil litigation, criminal and family law and is keen to build her practice further in those areas.
"Whilst working with Nicola I have found her to be extremely professional and well prepared. Her client care skills are excellent and she has always provided sound and clear advice. Our clients that she has represented have had nothing but good things to say about her." - Instructing Solicitor
"Very, very pleased with the result and also how you dealt with the case without any fuss as this was certainly not a straight-forward case and could have easily gone pear-shaped! Very impressed and look forward to instructing you again soon." - Instructing Solicitor
