Biography

Sam joined Chambers as a pupil in October 2021 and has been on his feet since April 2022. He accepts instructions in all of Chambers' practice areas and represents clients in all courts including the High Court, County Courts and tribunals particularly the property tribunals. He also offers drafting and advisory services. 

He has already gained good feedback for his work, with comments from clients including: "both myself and my friend have great admiration for your manner and incredible knowledge, you helped me solve an immense problem yesterday and that in turn will help me to have closure and a peaceful life hereafter".

Sam has previously worked as a County Court Advocate representing clients in RTA and Credit Hire claims and mortgage possession cases. He has experience of making a variety of applications, including settlement approval applications for children. 

Prior to pupillage, Sam worked at a firm of solicitors on the Grenfell Tower Inquiry assisting the bereaved, survivors and residents. He worked in the housing department dealing with a variety of housing work particularly disrepair and discrimination claims. Sam also volunteered at the Free Representation Unit dealing with social security appeals for his clients. As a result of this work, Sam is good at providing advice and support to vulnerable clients, particularly when they are facing very stressful situations.
