Costs Drafting History: 7 years

I began my career in law costs in 2012. Initially I learned to prepare Claim1s/Claim1As and detailed bills for assessment in various areas of law including Private Law, Public Law, Housing and Judicial Review matters. I then progressed to inter partes cases, initially taking on Housing and Judicial Review cases but later progressing to high value Personal Injury claims including costs negotiations and settlement. I also have extensive experience in preparing High Cost Cases (both fully costed and CCFS). I joined Bidwell Henderson in 2018. Since this time I have become proficient in the use of Costs Master and the preparation of XML files.

Profile: In my spare time I enjoy reading and writing short stories. I enjoy keeping fit and watching live bands. I have a black cat called Moxie.

Claim to fame: I am a secret goth

Favourite film/TV genre: Horror films and documentaries

Kelly Pashley-Handford, Spencers Solicitors

I have always found their managers and draftsmen to have detailed knowledge of current costs’ law, our case management system and to be knowledgeable and personable.
The managers Ann Henderson and Rebecca Bidwell are always on hand to support their cost draftsmen, and their strategic knowledge of how to manage the Legal Aid Agency costing process is invaluable and impressive.
