Barcan + Kirby LLP

I am a Partner at Barcan+Kirby LLP who deals with Employment Law claims, for both employer and employee clients, as well as representing the injured party in Personal Injury cases.

A bit about me...

I have been with Barcan+Kirby for over a decade and have progressed from trainee solicitor to Partner. I am based at our Queen Square office in central Bristol but regularly visit our other 5 offices in Thornbury, Kingswood, Clifton, Gloucester Road and Bedminster.

At Barcan+Kirby we pride ourselves on being friendly and approachable. We’re passionate about providing you with legal solutions that are intelligent, efficient and clear.

Providing a high standard of client care is the cornerstone of our success. We understand that you don’t just want a legal expert; you also want someone who listens and understands what you’re trying to achieve.

Our core values drive our culture and are at the heart of everything we do. As well as providing high quality, professional advice, we believe in finding practical, common-sense solutions to your issues whilst maintaining the highest standards of client care.

Late 2017/2018 was a busy time as I was proud to win Bristol Law Society's Lawyer of the Year award (in October 2017) and then in January 2018 my husband and I welcomed our first daughter, Jessica. It was whilst I was on maternity leave that I was offered partnership by my firm.

My husband and I love good food and drink but rather than our previous dinner and drinks out we have embraced a good brunch or Sunday lunch with Jess. We also have a cat called Waffle and she is a pampered princess who is slightly bemused by the child we brought home!
