Previous experience

Prior to working for Ralli, I worked for two reputable law firms in Manchester.

Why did you join Ralli Solicitors?

Good career development and positive working environment.

Who inspires you?

Our mission statement is: “Inspired by you.” We keep our clients at the heart of everything we do. We’re inspired by their need for justice. So we’re asking you, who inspires you?

Apart from my mother who is my rock and source of inspiration and strength, it would be Muhammad Ali who I was very fortunate to meet in person. One of his famous quotes was “Don’t count the days… make the days count.”

Key cases you have worked on

I worked on an employer’s liability case, where the client sustained a fracture to his little finger to the point where he needed surgery in order to assist in his recovery. The client would be left with a permanent injury. The client did not believe he had a successful case and therefore presented the claim with less than three months to limitation. After making investigations and speaking to the relevant witnesses, it was established that, he had a reasonably good case. After submitting the claim to the Defendant an admission was received but with 50% contributory negligence with an offer of £5000.  The client was advised to reject this and proceed on. The client was worried and was minded to accept the offer, but with professional guidance and reassurance a compensation award of  £27,000 was secured on a 100% liability basis. Needless to say the client was delighted.

What are your hobbies and interests?

I like reading about herbal remedies and nutrition. I also enjoy travelling, cooking and spending time with my family.
