I specialise in cases involving injuries of the utmost severity, arising as a result of clinical negligence by doctors, nurses and other health professionals.
Sometimes when people come to me, they are not really sure themselves what has happened to them or their family member - they just know that something has gone wrong and their lives have been changed irrevocably as a result.
No one can turn back the clock but provided we can prove that treatment was negligent, we can at least aim to provide some financial security for the future and if possible in the process of the investigation, provide some answers about what went wrong.
I practised as a fully Registered General Nurse (RGN) for 10 years prior to qualification as a Solicitor. I became interested in issues around consent to treatment and pursued a Law degree and that led on to the College of Law and training contract.
I enjoy the investigative process and getting to the bottom of what has happened. Partly because of my background I enjoy reading volumes of medical records and reports. Ultimately, I find that reaching a successful conclusion to a claim which I know will provide fully for an injured person's needs, is very satisfying.
I really enjoy the collegiate spirit at Irwin Mitchell. Everyone is focussed on achieving the best possible outcome for the client. The additional in-house support that we can offer client such as our Client Liaison Manager, Public Law & Human Rights, and Court of Protection teams are also a huge advantage.
A few years ago, I set up a local book group and we meet every 6 weeks or so to talk about books, life and other stories. I am taking a break from School Governance at the moment but may be drawn back into it again when my own children are older.
