Trainee Solicitor

I was brought up and educated in the Cheshire/North Staffordshire area, and continue to live here with my wife and mischievous rescue-cat, Jess. In 2009, I graduated from the University of Birmingham with an honours degree in Medieval and Modern History, but the long-term plan was always to work in law. I completed my Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in Christleton. Before joining Hall Smith Whittingham, I worked for another local firm, dealing with all aspects of residential conveyancing.

Outside of work, my main interests are sport and motoring: having represented my school at rugby and cricket, and my law college at rugby sevens, I am now sadly more of a spectator than a participant! I do still find the time to play golf, and aim to bring my handicap into single figures before too long. Motivated by the punitive insurance costs for young male drivers, I trained for, and passed, the Institute of Advanced Motorists Test in 2009. I have since trained others to pass the advanced test. Wider interests include politics, food and drink, film, and BBC Four crime dramas, whether it be Il Commissario Montalbano or Wallander.
