Georgia is a senior paralegal (MCILEx) in the personal injury team in London. She predominantly assists on a varied caseload of multi-million-pound catastrophic injury claims both in the UK and abroad, and specialises in traumatic brain and spinal cord injury matters.

Her daily responsibilities include: attending client visits and meetings, court hearings, inquests and inquiries; liaising with defendants' representatives to achieve clients' best interests; drafting witness statements, instructions to experts and instructions to counsel; attending conferences and settlement meetings; and obtaining and reviewing medical records and reports.

Georgia joined Penningtons Manches Cooper in 2017.
