Solicitor Graduate, Abuse
Kate works as a Solicitor Graduate Apprentice in our Abuse Claims Department, with a goal to qualify as a Solicitor in 2024.
After completing her education at Leeds Beckett University in 2018, Kate decided to specialise in Abuse Claims. Within this department, she has gained experience dealing with Civil Claims against various institutions including local authorities, public schools, religious institutions and charitable organisations. This includes the Manchester Homes 2 Group Action and the claims against Manchester City Council for abuse at St Anne’s School. Kate has also successfully navigated claims through the Lambeth and Manchester City Redress Schemes.
Reinforcing her dedication to excellence in her field, Kate is an active member of ACAL.
Case Studies / Notable Cases
One of Kate's standout moments was representing a client under the Lambeth Redress Scheme in 2021, securing them £88,000. What stood out even more than the financial outcome was watching the client grow throughout the claim. Building a trusting relationship with the client and witnessing the positive change in their life resonated deeply with her. The heartfelt feedback she received after the case had concluded became a testament to the impact she has on her clients' lives, showing that it goes beyond the legal proceedings and compensation.
Her dedication to representing survivors comes from a deep desire to make a meaningful difference in their lives. For Kate, the passion for her work lies not just in getting justice for survivors, but also in witnessing the transformative journey of her clients. Seeing them grow, heal, and find closure throughout the claim process is what she finds most fulfilling.
What Our Clients Think of Kate
"Kate made me comfortable and at ease from the beginning during this sensitive and upsetting part of my life. She was always professional and courteous on the many occasions we spoke over the phone and on email. I cannot express enough my gratitude and thanks I have for Kate and Liam at Simpson Millar. My life has changed so much for the better now and her results and hard work have given me opportunities that I never thought would be possible for me in my life. I highly recommend Simpson Millar for complex cases as they have proven to be professional at all times."
