Rebecca is an experienced general litigator but specialises in the fields of family law and personal injury. She obtained a Masters level qualification while at the same time achieving a Qualifying Law Degree and completed her Legal Practice Course (LPC) at Northumbria University. She completed her training by qualifying as a Chartered Legal Executive specialising in Civil Litigation and Family law.
Currently working between Sweeney Miller’s Sunderland and Newcastle offices, she previously worked in County Durham and retained many clients from Durham, Middlesbrough, Stockton-on-Tees, Hartlepool and Cleveland.
In family law, Rebecca assists and guides people when their relationship comes to an end, advising on the process of divorce and separation, including the related consequences for their children, finances, TOLATA applications, Orders for sale and property disputes.
She is passionate about finding a resolution for family disputes outside of court but sometimes this cannot be avoided. Rebecca will work closely with you and guide you through the court process if this is necessary.
She helps parents gain contact with their children after separation and she supports clients in the negotiation of an agreement or representing them in court proceedings to reach a fair resolution.
In the field of personal injury, Rebecca has extensive experience in road traffic accidents, public liability and occupier’s liability claims, employer’s liability cases, medical negligence and criminal injury claims.
She can help people to rebuild their lives after they have suffered from an injury through no fault of their own, by arranging private rehabilitation, securing interim funding to pay for services they need or to assist them whilst absent from work, and to seek compensation.
Rebecca is also involved in matters relating to landlords and tenants and can provide simple and cost-effective advice on a fixed fee basis for possession proceedings against residential and commercial tenants, draft tenancy agreements and contracts, section 8 and section 21 eviction notices and provide advice on deposits and representation in litigation regarding deposits.
If you need support in any of the above areas, you can get in touch with Rebecca by telephone or email.
