Montague Harris & Co, a small firm based in Chipping Sodbury. She joined BLS Council in 1989. Chairman of the Library Committee, Member of Conveyancing Committee and Special committee for Women and the recruitment crisis. After serving as President, she was elected to represent Bristol on the national Law Society Council.
