Sarah joined Chambers as a tenant in 2020 following a successful pupillage under the supervision of Kane Simons.

Sarah was called to the Bar in 2017. Prior to undertaking pupillage she was a member of Her Majesty’s Coroner’s legal team in a set of complex and high profile inquest/inquiry proceedings and was also the legal assistant to two senior junior personal injury barristers whom she assisted with case preparation and drafting in high value, multi-track proceedings.

Sarah takes instructions in a wide range of personal injury matters including fast track trials, Stage 3 and Disposal Hearings, interlocutory hearings, small claims and costs and case management conferences. During pupillage Sarah provided a talk for solicitors on tactics for success at Stage 3.

Sarah has experience in road traffic, employers’ liability, and public liability claims and accepts instructions for both claimants and defendants. She also has experience in the Social Security and Child Support tribunal, having represented clients in disability benefit appeals, particularly in relation to Personal Independence Payment and Employment and Support Allowance entitlements.

Out of court, Sarah is building her paperwork practice including advice and pleadings and is available to advise on liability and quantum at all stages of proceedings.

Sarah will accept instructions on a Conditional Fee basis where appropriate.
