Biography

I have extensive experience of occupational disease claims with an emphasis on mesothelioma claims. 

I strive to provide swift, accurate and expert assistance to those suffering from the effects of mesothelioma. 

I am sensitive to the needs of clients and their families in particular with life limiting illnesses. 

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I wanted to pursue a challenging career that would make a difference to people, groups and organisations. 

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

The one thing which I enjoy the most is meeting people: discussing their problems and trying to find solutions.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Both my wife and I were born in Yorkshire and returned to bring up our young family in 2008 (two daughters, one aged six and the other eight weeks old). At the moment life is on hold following the birth of our second child in April 2014!

    “We would like to hear from Rowland’s former colleagues as they may have additional information about the presence of asbestos and working conditions that could help in Nancy’s legal battle. She has understandably been left devastated by not only losing Rowland, but also her own recent mesothelioma diagnosis. “Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related disease for which there is sadly no cure.

"Mesothelioma causes a significant amount of pain and suffering for victims like Fred, as well as their families, like Stephen, who have to see their loved ones deal with the terrible illness in the final months of their lives. "We are now urging anyone who worked with Fred to come forward and give us any information they can so we can secure justice for him and his family."

    Appeal For Information After Tragic Death Of Local Teacher From Asbestos-Related Cancer

    “Mesothelioma is an aggressive and incurable cancer which causes so much distress for people like Susan and her family. On this occasion, the disease took David’s life within only one week of his diagnosis. Sadly, many employers did not do enough to manage the risks of asbestos exposure, despite knowing how dangerous it is. “We hope that former colleagues of David’s during his short time at Pollard Bearings, at Goole Grammar School and at Featherstone High School will come forward to help us with our investigations. David was an integral member of the teaching staff at Featherstone High School for twenty years and well respected in the local community. It’s important that we now help Susan and her family get answers about his exposure to the deadly dust.”
