Georgia joined VHS Fletchers Solicitors as a trainee solicitor in January 2019. She grew up and lives in East Midlands. She graduated from the University of Chester in 2017 with an undergraduate degree in law, before continuing to study her postgraduate masters in law at Nottingham Trent University in 2018.
Georgia is passionate about access to justice for those involved in criminal cases. As part of her Masters, Georgia wrote her dissertation on miscarriages of justice arising from limited access to legal aid and disclosure failures. This piece of work has enabled her to gain a considerable amount of knowledge on the current restrictions of accessing justice and the importance of ensuring every client receives legal representation.
In addition to her studies, Georgia undertook work experience with VHS Fletchers and has volunteered at her local Citizens Advice Bureau. While engaged in the latter, Georgia has assisted some very vulnerable clients giving her first hand experience of dealing with the most vulnerable in situations where her calm and caring manner is a great help.
Georgia is also an active blogger, posting articles about her experiences in the law, whether that be during the period of her studies or from her work experience and volunteering. You can find Georgia’s blog here.
Georgia will be working in our Chesterfield crime department developing skills in criminal defence. She will be working towards gaining an accredited police station qualification which will allow her to represent clients in the police station.
