Helena Tindall is a Trainee Solicitor based in Huddersfield.
Helena joined Switalskis initially as an Admin Assistant in February 2016. After a short time, she moved into our Clinical Negligence department to work as a Paralegal and in April 2017, Helena began her next chapter within the team as a Trainee Solicitor.
As a Trainee, Helena is involved in many different aspects of Clinical Negligence cases from handling initial enquiries, drafting witness statements, instructing experts to making applications for court. As this area of law is constantly changing and evolving, Helena finds that this combines the two things she enjoys the most – working with people and learning new skills.
