I started my career as a paralegal in 2015, qualifying as a solicitor in 2020, with over 6 years of experience in dealing with immigration, family, Wills & Probate, Civil Litigation, and residential property cases. I have a broad level of experience, allowing me to get through issues quickly keeping in mind my clients best interest. My interest in family law derives from wanting to help those whom are vulnerable in our society. I am able to fluently converse in English, Mirpuri, and Urdu and I can also speak and understand the languages Hindi and Punjabi.
Prior to joining National Legal Services, I held a partner position for my previous firm in Birmingham, supervising a team of paralegals and trainee solicitors.
I was also a Trustee at a Voluntary Organisation named Women Relief. We set up the Trust to help women who have been subjected to domestic abuse, particularly vulnerable women who do not speak English. We have assisted women who have been subjected to controlling behaviour, physical and verbal abuse within their relationships. Whilst working with Women Relief Trust, I signposted the victims to other organisations. The organisations supported and provided them with counselling also allowing them to explore their housing options as many women were without housing and were unaware of their rights.
Outside of work, I enjoy travelling, reading and cooking in my spare time.
I wish to broaden my experience within family law and to be able to supervise a small team; in the future I am hoping to establish my own practice.
