I joined Maxwell Hodge as a member of the Family Team in 2022 and have progressed to the role of Family Paralegal. Prior to this I worked as the Family Assistant while undertaking my Law with Politics degree at the University of Liverpool.

My role has evolved since starting in 2022 due to the support of my Team, Office Manager and Directors who saw my capability to advance beyond a secretarial capacity. I have worked on matrimonial, financial and children matters, pre and post-nuptial agreements and drawn up change of name deeds. Throughout this time, my priority has remained the same, to ensure that our clients understand the complex legal principles presented to them. Family issues nearly always involve multiple possible avenues and varies on a case-by-case basis.

I am the first point of contact for all new family enquiries and it’s important to me that I lend a friendly ear to listen to each individual situation. All clients have a different story to tell and its our job to make a difficult time easier for them, whether that’s by way of one-off initial advice or progressing the case from start to finish.

Each day in my role is different however my duties include taking client instructions, reviewing, and compiling financial disclosure, and making sure our clients stay updated and informed with their case progress. I work closely with Michael Pratt to assist with his caseload, hopefully making his life easier!

At Maxwell Hodge I am surrounded by team players and people who all want each other to succeed. The Family Team operates like a family unit, I have a good rapport with Michael and Lotus which makes my role much more enjoyable.

I am based at our Maghull office, and I am contactable on 0151 526 7131 ext. 6001 for any queries.
