Call: 2021

Amy joined Chambers following the completion of her pupillage in October 2023. During pupillage, she gained experience in a variety of practice areas, including criminal, regulatory, environmental and family work, under the supervision of Nina Ellin, Gordon Menzies, Chris Badger and Grace Cullen.

Amy maintains a broad common law practice. She prosecutes and defends in the Magistrates’, Crown and Youth Courts. She is also regularly instructed in civil applications, such as Stalking Protection Orders, Sexual Risk Orders and Account Freezing Orders. Amy has a background in professional discipline and regulation, having worked at the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and Health and Care Professions Council, and now appears on behalf of the NMC in both interim and substantive hearings.

Before pupillage, Amy was a Judicial Assistant in the Family Division of the High Court undertaking research and assisting in cases involving care proceedings, child abduction and financial remedies. She also completed a master’s degree in Global Criminal Law, during which she became particularly interested in the death penalty which motivated her to intern at a capital defence law office in Louisiana.
