Journey to law
Louise switched from history to law after doing a law option in her first year at university, which she really enjoyed. She experimented with becoming an accountant but only to discover that it was not for her. She had a calling back to law and was lured by the excitement of bringing the subject to life in practice.
Prior to becoming a solicitor, Louise travelled extensively and accepted a job as a paralegal in the employment department of a large law firm. She discovered that she loved the discipline so much that when she began her legal training she had no desire to do anything other than employment law.
Louise became an employment lawyer because it allows her to work with people to make a difference to their lives on a daily basis, whether acting for employers or employees. We are not all born with the same opportunities, but she believes that everyone should be treated fairly and be given a chance. Employment law allows her to put her deeply held values into practice whilst also being an area of the law that makes sense to her – she can relate to it.

Louise provided me with outstanding service. I would highly recommend Louise. She was very thorough and was able to remove all the legal jargon and explain it in ordinary language.
Louise’s knowledgeable, prompt and thorough work has been invaluable. What’s more, her efficient manner and kind nature have been a pleasure to deal with. She and Jones Chase deserve enthusiastic recommendation.
A huge thank you to you for all of your kind support and time.
You have been flexible, approachable, clearly advised, gone over and above a lot of times in terms of late evenings and we’ve also managed to utilise our sense of humour – which I think is important.
Your kind and valued support, advice and time, means so much to me. All in all, you’ve been excellent.
Louise looked after my case from start to finish. Communication was excellent and she answered all of my queries promptly and followed up queries with my employer to make the process a breeze. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
