Training & Education

Charlotte completed her LPC in 2014 and received distinctions in all subjects. In 2013, she graduated from Leeds University with a first class honour degree in law.

During her final year of university, she was diagnosed with cancer. Since being in remission, she was appointed as an ambassador for the Teenage Cancer Trust. As the public face of the Trust, she was presented with several great opportunities, one of which was speaking to an audience of over 5000 per night at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

The role also took on an educational platform, as she has spoken in schools around Leeds about her experience.


Charlotte was awarded Rising Star of the Year at the 2018 Yorkshire Legal Awards.

Outside of work

Charlotte is an avid fundraiser, and although most of her efforts are on behalf of the Teenage Cancer Trust, she also speaks at events for other charities all over the country. Consequently, she was voted “Female Personality of the Year” at a local award ceremony, and has also been nominated for the Yorkshire Young Achiever award.

When she’s not working on her legal and charitable endeavours, Charlotte enjoys dining out, spending time with loved ones, socialising with friends and loves to write poetry.
