Aadhithya accepts instructions in all court of protection matters commensurate to her call.
Prior to commencing pupillage Aadhithya gained particularly valuable experience in dealing with vulnerable individuals and those with mental health concerns through time spent working in the NHS with the Greater Manchester CRISIS outreach and Mental Health Teams. During this time she operated the Mental Health Services non-emergency help line and is familiar with psychiatric and psychological assessments of those with a wide range of mental health and learning difficulties.
Aadhithya was previously employed by the Civil Service as a Home Office Presenting Officer, representing the Secretary of State in asylum and immigration claims. Accordingly she is well versed in conducting proceedings through the assistance of interpreters.
Before commencing pupillage at St Ives Chambers, Aadhithya spent six months working in the USA with the Jackson, Mississippi Office of Capital Post Conviction Counsel, investigating and providing legal services on final stage Death Penalty cases. During this time Aadhithya routinely met and conducted conferences with clients incarcerated on “death row”, interviewed a wide range of witnesses, professionals and jurors and investigated historic crimes. This was done alongside the general breadth of paralegal duties such as drafting notices of appeal, skeleton arguments and extensive legal research.
