Profile

I completed a BSc in Psychology at the University of Southampton before going on to complete my Graduate Diploma in Law at Kingston University and my Legal Practice Course at The College of Law, Guildford. I then joined Whitehead Monckton as a trainee solicitor in September 2009.

 

I qualified as a Solicitor in September 2011 and until April 2013 was based in the Maidstone office. Since then I have been based in the firm's Canterbury office. I became a Senior Solicitor in September 2015 and an Associate in April 2016.

 

I have expertise in:

I became a full STEP member in November 2018 and am a full accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly. I am also a member of Whitehead Monckton’s Corporate Social Responsibility team and have an active role in raising awareness and money for our Charity of the Year.

 

What my clients say:

“I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the sterling work you did on our behalf.  I realise that you put some emphasis on completing this as quickly as possible for our sake, and this is greatly appreciated as we have been able to focus on other matters without the need of having too much regular involvement with solicitors”

 

“Friendly and helpful”

 

“Works hard for the client’s benefit”

 

"We appreciated her gentle and caring approach as she guided us through the legal process in a most professional way".

 

“Thank you for your help and patience during our meeting, my mother had been very concerned about meeting a solicitor but you made her feel comfortable and she was pleased with the outcome and relieved.”

 

"You were very helpful and I really appreciate everything you have done for me. I look forward to seeing you in Canterbury.”

 

“I would like to thank you for your invaluable help and advice over the last 16 months.  I wish you every success and all my very best wishes”

 

"Thank you very much for looking after our requirements most professionally and with such a pleasing manner".

 

"Absolutely delighted at the level of service I received recently.  I had an extremely urgent probate to obtain and it was delivered before I thought it possible.  This enabled me to complete a property transaction much to my advantage.  I was always dealt with professionally and the personnel I interacted with always called me back when they said they would.  This one thing is something I have never experienced before. Well done. Good job!"

 

"Thank you for the prompt and professional way you handled this matter. I will have no hesitation in using your services again should the need arise, or recommending your firm to family and friends"

 

"Quick, clear, concise and gave me detailed answers to the questions and issues I had. Hannah was extremely caring and very understanding of my situation. After the meeting I had a big feeling of knowing that she was a phone call away from any questions my husband or daughter may have in the future."

 

When out of the office:

Outside of the office I undertake some freelance work with Thomson Reuters writing content for Practical Law’s Private Client section. I also play hockey for Maidstone HC, putting in many hours on the training ground during the week and representing the 1st XI at the weekends. Out of the season I try to keep fit by running and cycling and I also enjoy travelling.
