I am a legal assistant in the personal injury and clinical negligence team based in Macclesfield. I assist in all types of cases however my main caseload at present is made up of Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) claims involving sexual assault and historic sexual abuse.
I have been with the firm for four years – this is my first job in the legal sector. I originally started as a receptionist before expanding my role after the first year. I worked for the a personal injury and clinical negligence department as well as the wills and probate team, before becoming exclusively a legal assistant within personal injury and clinical negligence in early 2022. In 2022, I graduated with a 2:1 in law and will begin my LPC in September 2023.
