Training & employment experience

She studied History at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and then went on to study Law at BPP Law School in Leeds. Upon conclusion of her studies in 2008, Katie joined a busy legal aid practice in Leeds City Centre, at which point she began working in Family Law and has specialised in this area ever since.


Katie is a personable and empathetic solicitor with excellent client care skills who promotes a constructive approach to the sensitive issues associated with the breakdown of relationships. She explores the possibility of an agreed settlement wherever possible but is determined and meticulous in order to ensure that the cases that cannot be agreed result in the best possible outcome for her clients.

Outside of work

Katie is an avid traveller and enjoys making the most of her time off work exploring new countries. Katie also has a very energetic dog with whom she loves walking in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
