- Location: Croydon
- Role: Assistant Solicitor
- Practice Area: Housing Law
Simeon practices in all areas of housing law, including defending possession proceedings (rent arrears, succession and allegations of anti social behaviour), homelessness including reviews, appeals and Judicial Review proceedings. Simeon also specialises in community care cases where there is an overlap with housing such as homeless families where the local authority’s duty has ceased and accommodation is being provided by social services.
