Tashauna (Tash) is a Trainee Solicitor in Hanne & Co’s Family & Divorce Law Department where she assists 2 partners and 3 solicitors in divorce, matrimonial and child abduction cases.
Tash joined the firm in June 2018 as a Child Care Paralegal whilst studying the LPC part time at the University of Law in Bloomsbury. Tash was on the Herts Success Scholarship Programme at Hertfordshire University throughout her undergraduate studies which was maintained by academic performance and achievement. As part of her final year at university, she was elected by her university to debate as a delegate in the Paris International United Nations Conference representing the Economic and Social Committee for Jamaica. She went on to achieve a 2.1 in her Law and Business Joint Honours Degree.
Tash’s mother has been a foster carer for 19 years. Tash has learned to be compassionate and understanding through her experience of dealing with a variety of children and teenagers who have come from very different backgrounds and very different experiences. She has experience of living with children with Autism, learning difficulties, ADHD, and children from very complex backgrounds. Tash further developed her understanding of children and offending by taking part in the Hertfordshire Youth Offenders Panel training in her second year of university.
Before joining the firm, Tash was a family paralegal working on both private and public family law cases. She was given the opportunity to clerk the notable case of Egeneonu v Egeneonu 2017 in the Royal Courts of Justice.
Tash regularly takes part in various charity events within the community and abroad in Jamaica where she lived for nearly two years as a teenager. She would regularly assist her family with organising ‘fun days’ where families living in poverty could come along for food, clothing and books. In July 2018 Tash took part in the Pretty Muddy 5k Race for Life.
In her spare time, she enjoys travelling and has visited over 10 countries in Europe, Africa and the Caribbean. She hopes to have visited all the world continents by 2021.
