After completing my degree, I worked for the Crown Prosecution Service in London for a year, before attending The College of Law, Guildford to study for the Solicitors Final Examination. I completed my Articles with a firm in Gray's Inn, London and qualified as a solicitor in 1993. I continued to practice in London , specialising in Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence.

In 2005 I joined the College of Law, Guildford as a Visiting Lecturer teaching litigation, property and employment law. I joined the University of Surrey in November 2010. In my role as Teaching Fellow for Professional Development and Employability I have forged strong links with employers locally, nationally and internationally. I also teach Medical Law, Tort and Ethics.
