The ability to work in a profession where seeking justice for everyday clients remains the focus has and continues to be the most rewarding experience.
Get to know Grace
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Cardiac Physiology from St George’s, University of London in 2017. After working as a qualified Cardiac Physiologist in the NHS and following the completion of my Master of Laws [Law Conversion] in 2018, I joined Slater and Gordon as a paralegal in the medical negligence department in London.
I have assisted clients with a wide range of complex and at times high profile claims including birth injuries, amputations, surgical errors and cancer misdiagnosis claims. I always go above and beyond for our clients, and ensure that all of their concerns or queries are answered effectively and in a timely fashion.
I secured a training contract with Slater and Gordon in 2019 and having recently completed the Legal Practice Course (LPC), I have commenced my training in the Serious Injury department in Cambridge. Aside from medical negligence and personal injury, I have various interests including employment, crime and family law and will begin training in these departments in the months to come.
My career highlights include working closely with solicitors on a number of high profile and extremely complex Medical Negligence cases. Throughout my career, I have been fortunate enough to work very closely with clients and often, act as their first point of contact. Working on a claim and seeing it through to a successful resolution for the client whether by settlement or through to Trial has been and will continue to be an ongoing career highlight.

The extra mile
I am a proud supporter of various charities including the Sickle Cell Society, Cancer Research and Macmillan and take part and assist in organising various fundraising events.
I am also a mentor to secondary school students who showcase an interest in law and provide them with tailored advice and feedback on CVs and applications.
I also participate in regular motivational careers talks which are geared towards Black and Asian minority ethnicities students in an effort to encourage and increase diversity in within the legal sector.
