Evangeline Ashby

Evangeline is a paralegal working within the Adult Brain Injury Team. She joined Bolt Burdon Kemp in October 2017.

She studied Law with Politics at the University of Sussex and began the Legal Practice Course at BPP University, London in February 2018.  She studies this part-time alongside working at Bolt Burdon Kemp which gives her a good opportunity to apply practice and theory alongside each other.  Evangeline has the eventual aim of becoming a solicitor and upon qualification, hopes to specialise in Clinical Negligence.

Evangeline prides herself on her friendly nature and ability to be flexible in her work.  Having previously worked in commercial litigation, Evangeline has gained exposure to a wide range of legal sectors including multi-national construction disputes and EU Competition Law.

Her drive to work in a more people-focused sector led to her finding a job at Bolt Burdon Kemp, where she enjoys putting her energy into making a difference to the lives of injured people.  She particularly enjoys being able to scrutinise potential claims in order to determine the specific issues of medical negligence.

Evangeline currently assists Tom Lax, undertaking work on a range of different Clinical Negligence claims with a focus on Adult Brain Injury.  She assists in cases on behalf of adults, children and estates, where the patient has passed away.  She is also the firm’s court clerk where she works with other teams such as military claims and child abuse and is enjoying getting a wide range of experience from across the firm at court.  This includes advocacy to obtain approval for consent orders, settlement orders and applications such as anonymity applications.
