Laura has extensive housing and property litigation experience, having acted for social housing providers, private landlords and tenants, including roles in Legal Aid and as the court duty advisor. After qualifying via the Cilex route she practised as a Legal Executive and then later decided to qualify as a Solicitor after joining Capsticks and is now an Associate.
She is an avid advocate, relishing the challenge of securing a successful outcome for clients and embedding best practice as a cornerstone of her advice. Laura advises via a risk-based approach to litigation, which benefits from her experience working on financial misconduct cases. Clients feel at ease with Laura, being reassured by her confident yet personable demeanour.
Areas of expertise in housing management include possession proceedings, advising on the Public Sector Equality Duty, tenancy deposit regulations, anti-social behaviour injunctions and housing disrepair.
Laura is passionate about supporting charitable activities. As a student she co-pioneered the Heaney Watson pro bono law clinic at Liverpool John Moores, providing free advice on family and employment issues. For a number of months she also volunteered at Halton Citizens Advice Bureau and held the posts of treasurer and trustee with her local Scout group. She often gets involved at local level with charitable projects.
Within Capsticks, Laura is a key member of the Chorley CSR team, helping to plan and deliver charitable activities and fund raisers. She is also the Chorley office’s designated mental health first aider, providing support and guidance in this important area.
