What makes me tick?

Moving house is often seen as one of the most stressful times in a person’s life and I aim to provide a personable service and guide clients through their transaction with as little stress as possible. I understand the importance to keep legal jargon to a minimum and to keep clients updated as much as possible throughout the transaction. Often there are hurdles to overcome and I apply a pragmatic approach to deal with those and find a way forward.

My experience

I trained at a firm in Nottingham before moving back to the area and working in several local firms before joining James Legal in June 2021.

Outside of work

Starting each day off with a gym session to get the endorphins flowing. I enjoy playing football albeit not competitive and more of an organised kickabout with a group of friends. My favourite way to unwind is by doing a spot of baking, sampling the products created is always a bonus too.

What I do?

I specialise in the following areas:

  • Residential Property Sales and Purchases
  • Buy-to-Let transactions
  • Re-mortgages
  • Land transactions
  • Transfers of Equity
  • Lease extensions

We only do modern and friendly. We don’t do stuffy or grumpy.

We’re friendly and professional.

We are relaxed and driven.

We don’t believe in having gaps (which people fill with assumptions). We strive for fantastic communication so you’re always in the loop.
