Amy acts for clients both on a legally aided and private paying basis.
Outside of work, Amy spends quite a lot of her spare time raising money for vulnerable children and young people across the North-East through the charitable organisation United for Children North-East. Amy together with a group of local solicitors, barristers and judges continue to focus on raising money to support projects which directly benefit young people across the region, working with agencies and charities who support those most in financial need and crisis.
In her actual spare time, Amy likes spending quality time with her family, friends and dog (Millie) as well as jumping on a plane at any available opportunity.
