Her responsibilities include perusal of documents, preparation of case bundles, drafting case correspondence and pleadings and attending to clients to obtain instructions and prepare witness statements.

Hemlata’s objective is to quality as a Solicitor specialising in Human Rights and Social Welfare law. She was attracted to Appleman Legal as she shares our commitment to these areas of practice.

She is currently working towards gaining sufficient experience to undertake the Law Society Mental Health Scheme accreditation.


As a paralegal, Hemlata is given the responsibility to attend clients who are detained in psychiatric hospitals to obtain their instructions.
