Position

Lynda is the director of the Cardiff housing department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. She has over 25 years of post-qualification experience and litigates across a broad range of housing law matters, in particular those where the client has Equality Act defences. She regularly acts for vulnerable clients with mental health difficulties.

Committed to the most vulnerable, Lynda ensures that access to justice is readily available by regularly providing pro bono services both in Cardiff and in the Blaenau Gwent area where high-quality advice is scarce. Lynda has significant advocacy experience and is currently on a duty rota at Cardiff County Court and a free legal advice rota in a local Citizens Advice.

Lynda has been influential in many complex cases; she provided assistance on the case of Lee-v-Cardiff City Council which clarified the position regarding permission prior to an application for a warrant.

Lynda has been a keynote speaker for a national charity event and was a legal consultant to the producers of BBC Raw. She also attended a forum concerning debt alongside the shadow chancellor.

Career

Lynda was admitted as a solicitor in 1990 and worked in several firms prior to joining Duncan Lewis in November 2015. She became a director in 2019.
