I started my career at EAD in 2007 as a Paralegal in the Residential Conveyancing department and was offered my training contract in September 2008. I qualified as a Solicitor in September 2010 and worked in the Employment department thereafter.
I then made the decision to practice another area of law for a new refreshing challenge and joined the Residential Conveyancing department in October 2014, which has proven to be a smooth transition given my previous experience and background. In addition, due to being able to speak Chinese (Cantonese), I am able to not only provide my legal knowledge to my Chinese clients but also provide a translation service to my Chinese–speaking only clients.
I am also a committee member of the WLD (Women Lawyers Division) and assist in the organising of our monthly events. This is a fantastic way to network and be familiar with fellow local solicitors.
I attended St. Edward’s College in Liverpool and I am proud to be an Old Edwardian. I then graduated from the University of Liverpool with a degree in Law and went on to study the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in Chester.
Greatest Professional Achievement
I would say qualifying as a Solicitor which involved intense studying and training. My professional achievements are ongoing in the sense of when I obtain a satisfactory result for my clients, for example a win at the Tribunal or a great settlement deal. To have been able to assist throughout with their case from the start and achieve an outcome that allows my client to move on and have closure from their former employer provides great satisfaction.
Greatest Personal Achievement
Being the first in my family to have a legal professional career.
When not in work, I can be found on the netball court, at the gym, or flying to exotic locations around the world to feed my love of travel and culture!
