Judith, who was admitted as a solicitor in 2002, joined the TSP Dispute Resolution team in March 2015. Based in the Colchester office, Judith undertakes all types of Dispute Resolution and Debt Recovery work for both individuals and business clients, but has a particular specialism in leasehold extensions and private and commercial defamation.
Judith, who was raised in Norfolk, worked as a journalist in Colchester before qualifying as a solicitor. During this time Judith worked as a news reporter and local government correspondent on the Colchester Gazette and Essex County Standard and was a sub editor of local weekly newspapers in the Newsquest Essex Group.
In 1995 Judith decided to take her career in another direction, studying for a law degree at the University of Essex. Following graduation in 1998 she also worked as a seminar tutor of contract law while studying part time on the Legal Practice course at the London Guildhall University, passing with a commendation. In 2000, she completed her training contract with a local Colchester law firm before qualifying as a solicitor.
A Legal 500 Recommended Lawyer, she has extensive experience in all aspects of Dispute Resolution and has worked in County Court, High Court and The Court of Appeal. She has worked on a number of high profile public interest cases, including a claim for damages for false imprisonment and assault by a boss who said he had been making a citizen’s arrest. The case was discussed and argued extensively in the press and on radio and television. Judith brings additional experience to the team in defamation, leasehold enfranchisement and extension and a wide range of commercial disputes and debt recovery.
In 2005 Judith was admitted by the Master of the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury as a Notary Public, having taken her Diploma in Notarial Practice at the University of Cambridge. Her work as a Notary includes preparing and executing legal documents and attesting the authenticity of deeds and documents for use anywhere in the world.
In her spare time Judith enjoys walking, especially Nordic walking. She has plans to refresh her dinghy sailing skills in the Colne estuary and is an active supporter of Autism Anglia, of which charity she is a parent trustee. Judith said “I am delighted to join the team at TSP. I know the firm well from my years of practising law in Colchester and am looking forward to working with their clients to resolve disputes in the most cost-effective way possible.”
