Charlotte Waller grew up on the other side of the Pennines, in Stockport. She studied Law with French at Leicester University, which allowed her to study at the university in Strasbourg for a year.
She went on to complete her Legal practice Course at York Law School and has been in York ever since, after falling in love with the city and her husband.
After qualifying as a Solicitor in 1998, Charlotte’s first position was working for a large law firm in York, where she specialised in road traffic accident personal injury claims. Charlotte gained considerable knowledge and experience in the ten years she spent at that firm. Eventually she progressed to deal with more complex, higher value claims and spent the majority of her time in their motorbike claims team.
After trying her hand at management, she realised it wasn’t for her because she missed the satisfaction of fighting and winning claims. Following this she moved to a national law firm, where she worked for almost ten years as a personal injury solicitor in their high value/complex claims unit out of their Leeds office.
Charlotte was offered a post at Pryers in Autumn 2018, where she now works and continues to practice in her specialism. She also enjoys being able to cycle to work in the city she loves.
When she is not working, Charlotte is a mum to two teenage daughters. In what little spare time that leaves she enjoys enjoys hiking and jogging.
