Natalie Thorpe

Paralegal

Natalie joined TV Edwards in December 2020 and supports Radhika Shah, Amanda Ford and Leslie Jaji with various housing matters. This includes, possession proceedings, disrepair, homelessness and injunctions.

Immediately prior to joining, Natalie managed her own caseload as a housing paralegal at a West London law firm so is highly experienced with homelessness matters.

Natalie is particularly experienced at assisting clients with challenging gatekeeping practices and adverse decisions made by local authorities in homelessness applications.

Natalie’s interest in access to justice, and particularly legal aid, stems from her time volunteering at Citizens Advice. It particularly demonstrated the importance of achieving quality client care with limited resources, when assisting clients. It was also during this time that she developed her interest in housing matters, as the impact of not having settled accommodation was highlighted across the various issues that she assisted with.

Natalie is a member of the Young Legal Aid Lawyers.
