She then represented various high-profile cases of political victims, journalists, child custody cases and others until she was forced to live in exile in London.
Ben Ebbrell and Barry Taylor head up The Sorted Crew, a group of childhood friends who got together during their university holidays to share anecdotes, assumptions and problems that they were each facing during their first year away from home.

With Ben cooking and Barry taking photographs and using his design skills, the crew set themselves up on YouTube to upload filmed recipes, and these SortedFood video recipes now get millions of views every month. They have self-published two recipe books, A Recipe for Student Survival and A Rookie's Guide to Crackin' Cooking, and Beginners... Get Sorted was their first book with Penguin.
