Aadhithya regularly appears in the full range of housing matters including possession, anti-social behaviour injunctions and breach proceedings. Aadhithya is regularly instructed by landlords and is considered to be a trusted and highly competent junior barrister for her call.
Aadhithya’s approachable and likeable manner is often noted by clients and her persuasive abilities with opponents and the court is lauded. She is well able to appreciate and appropriately handle the subtleties and nuances of any case and is always highly prepared and organised in her approach. Aadhithya is considered a persuasive and eloquent advocate who acts fearlessly in promoting her client’s case and position.
Aadhithya has experience in working within the NHS Mental Health Services and her ability to fairly deal with those suffering from such conditions has been of great value to her conduct of housing cases. She treats all clients and opposing parties with respect and sensitivity and her manner in court reflects the same.
During Pupillage Aadhithya spent time under the supervision of Michelle Caney where she became well-versed in the full breadth of a housing practice.
Aadhithya was employed previously by the Civil Service as a Home Office Presenting Officer, representing the Secretary of State regularly in Asylum, Human Rights, EEA Regulations, general Immigration, Points-Based System, Entry Clearance and Visit Visa appeals at the First Tier AIT Tribunal. She has a sound understanding of article 8 rights and the conduct of civil proceedings and trials.
Aadhithya has 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.
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.
