Biography

I specialise in both international illness claims and accidents abroad which involve foreign laws and jurisdictions. I have successfully acted for thousands of clients, ranging from incidents at hotels, cruises, road traffic accidents abroad and sexual assault.

I have dealt with numerous cases concerning illness outbreaks at hotels, and on cruises, caused by pathogens such as salmonella, campylobacter, cryptosporidium and norovirus. I have also dealt with cases involving E-coli and Legionnaires' disease.

I have an excellent track record of success and have been involved in achieving some fantastic results in relation to damages, costs and successfully winning cases at trial.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I was inspired to take up a career in law as I wanted to provide a voice to those that have been wronged.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

The most rewarding aspect of my role is putting a smile on the face of my clients when justice has been obtained for them.

    “Clearly the holiday Darren, Lisa and Alex were looking forward to, did not turn out how they planned. “The last thing they expected was Darren and Alex to be struck down by a gastric illness, which effectively meant they lost time on their holiday and had their Christmas ruined. “Younger people can be more vulnerable to the problems associated with gastric illness and we have seen some instances where victims suffer long-term health complications as a result of developing a gastric illness while spending time abroad. “The Money’s have told us of a number of safety and hygiene concerns they have and we are investigating the circumstances around their illness in the hope of providing them with the answers they deserve for their ruined holiday. “If you also travelled to this hotel and have had a similar experience we would like to hear from you to assist with our enquiries.”

    Legal Action After Man Hospitalised By Legionnaires Disease After Greek Holiday

    “Legionnaires’ disease is very serious and can be fatal if contracted by vulnerable people. We have been instructed to investigate David’s illness to try and to determine what caused it. “Although at present the root cause in this case is not yet known, the risks of Legionnaires’ disease have been known for many years and there are very strict guidelines in place for hotels to prevent the spread of the disease. They include maintaining hot and cold water within the correct temperature range and strict maintenance of any storage tanks containing water to prevent the transmission of the bacteria. “If these guidelines are not followed, the effects of an outbreak can be devastating. Following cases of Legionnaires’ disease it is important that the root cause is identified as soon as possible to prevent further holidaymakers being affected.”
