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 are working with Patricia in her fight for justice to find out why she exposed to asbestos and believe she was substantially exposed to asbestos while working for Bassetts Sweet Factory and during her time at various mills. “Mesothelioma is an incurable and debilitating disease and its symptoms can only treated temporarily.

    Leeds Widow Launches Appeal for Witnesses Following Cancer Diagnosis

    “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. Despite employers being well aware of the risks associated with the material since the 1930s, we are still regularly contacted by families who have lost loved ones because they were exposed to asbestos without the necessary protective equipment or clothing.”
