I am an associate solicitor specialising in claims on behalf of people who have been affected by asbestos related illnesses, particularly assisting sufferers of, and the families of those affected by, the asbestos related cancer, mesothelioma.
I have achieved a number of noteworthy settlements in cases where there has been limited exposure to asbestos, including cases brought on behalf of a number of prison officers. I have obtained substantial compensation payments for clients affected by asbestos related illnesses.
I am a good listener and I do my upmost to put my clients at ease in what can, without the appropriate support, seem a bewildering process.
I am a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
I wanted to become a solicitor to help people, who through no fault of their own, have been injured or developed illnesses.
I gain a lot of satisfaction from helping people recover compensation that will help them obtain the care and assistance they need to cope with their injuries/illnesses and for those clients who are terminally ill, it enables them to provide for their families into the future.
Irwin Mitchell cares about people, both their clients for whom they are constantly striving to provide the highest levels of service and also the staff who work for the firm.
Away from the office I enjoy being involved in musical theatre and have been a member of a local group, putting on a large number of productions at a local theatre, for many years.
“Mesothelioma is a particularly aggressive form of cancer which has a poor prognosis for those once they are diagnosed. It can cause a significant amount of pain and suffering for victims like Jayne, as well as family and friends who see their loved ones in distress.
“Jayne should not have been exposed to asbestos whilst she was at work and we urge anyone who was familiar with the GCHQ Oakley site to come forward. Any information in relation to maintenance work or asbestos exposure at the blocks at this site will be hugely helpful for our investigations into Jayne’s exposure.
“We understand the sensitivities of the GCHQ employees being subject to the Official Secrets Act and would not be asking anyone to reveal any sensitive information regarding the nature of their work at GCHQ. It is only information about the buildings on site and the site itself that we are seeking to obtain.”
“Mesothelioma is an aggressive and incurable cancer which has a significant impact on the life of those affected by it.
“The inhalation of asbestos fibres can lead to severe health consequences. Bob’s case highlights the risks being present, not only in a factory or industrial environment but also in an office environment, where inadequate measures were put in place to prevent asbestos from circulating in the work area.
“We hope to speak to any of Bob’s former colleagues or those who worked as contractors at Cedar House who may hold vital information about the presence of asbestos and the working conditions in this building.”
“Mesothelioma is a very aggressive, and sadly, incurable cancer and once diagnosed can lead to a rapid deterioration in a victim’s health. It can cause a significant amount of pain and suffering for victims like Geoff, as well as family and friends who see their loved ones in distress.
“We hope that anyone who remembers Geoff will come forward and provide the crucial evidence we need about how and where he was exposed to asbestos to help us get his family the answers they need after losing their husband, father and grandfather.”
Mesothelioma is an aggressive and incurable cancer which causes significant distress to victims and their families. The only known cause of Mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos dust and it could have been avoided simply by being given appropriate protection.
“We hope that George’s former colleagues will be able to come forward with any information about the conditions at Hawker Siddeley Aviation Limited.
“The dangers and risks of exposure to asbestos dust were identified as early as 1940 and 1950, yet all too often we see workers and their families who have been left devastated decades later because their relatives were not warned of the dangers or given the appropriate protection.”
