While studying for the postgraduate law conversion course part-time in London, Elle also joined a number of pro bono projects, and worked alongside a clinical psychologist specialising in work with victims of trafficking and domestic abuse. Through these experiences, Elle found an interest in community care and public law which led her to joining Simpson Millar’s Public Law team.

Elle offers thorough legal support, focusing on practical solutions and the well-being of her clients. She specialises in public law, especially when supporting vulnerable individuals, handling sensitive cases with care and professionalism. She goes the extra mile for her clients, always aiming to achieve outcomes that are specifically tailored to their unique needs.
