Deborah joined Jacksons in May 2023 and has over 20 years specialism as an employment solicitor. Deborah has acted for both employers and employees, having first acted for financial institutions and then spending many years acting for some of the largest trade unions’ members, including managing equal pay work in what became a national campaign.
More recently she has acted for employer clients guiding HR and ER managers in a unionised environment and representing and advising in matters from trial advocacy to TUPEs. She has a practical pragmatic approach and has the knowledge and experience to see both sides enabling her to give fully rounded and practical advice.
Deborah qualified in the south having graduated in law from the University of Essex and College of Law Guildford, but returned home after having her first child, as she is a north easterner with roots in Teesside, North Yorkshire, and Wearside. She was born in Sunderland and grew up in Washington and now lives and works in Newcastle with her husband son and daughter, 2 cats and a mad cocker spaniel.
