I am a solicitor based in the Sheffield office. I undertook my training contract at Irwin Mitchell and qualified into the Medical Negligence team in September 2013.
I manage my own caseload and also assist Sarah Rowland and Anna Stacey on a wide range of cases, such as: birth injury claims, including those involving for still births and cerebral palsy injuries; fatal claims; delay in diagnosis of cancer; mental health claims and cases of surgical negligence.
Charity and community work is also very important to me. I am a Trustee at Sheffield Mind, a charity that offers a range of services and support to people who have suffered from a mental health problem, enabling them to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. Being a Trustee enables me to play a part in maximising the quality of service that the charity provides, making sure service-users have the support, advice, guidance and skills to improve their quality of life.
I'm passionate about fundraising work. In 2012, I slept outside Sheffield Cathedral to raise money for the Archer Project, a charity that supports those affected by homelessness. Since joining Irwin Mitchell I've been involved in a number of fundraising events, including a recent fundraising walk for Macmillan Cancer Support and many cake sales in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and Rotherham Hospice. I have also coordinated a large shoe collection for children living in orphanages in Malawi and Sri Lanka. At Christmas, I enjoy assisting with Irwin Mitchell's annual pantomime trip, in which a number of families enjoy a trip to our local theatre.
I take an active role in supervising work placement students that come to the firm to gain work experience; I've also lectured at Sheffield Hallam University to students who are interested in law.

“We are delighted to work with charities to be able to deliver this service to the community in Rotherham. It’s a day not just about raising awareness of healthy issues, but also a chance to promote a healthy lifestyle and wellbeing.
“It can sometimes be difficult to come to terms with health problems and approach medical professionals for advice on general health and lifestyle. However this informal event will provide people with the opportunity to come along and learn more about what help and advice is available to them.”
“It’s often surprising to find out how many people are both unaware of the support that is on offer from charities and organisations and the difference this advice can make to their health and wellbeing.
“We work with many people who have experienced life-altering physical and mental changes, often due to circumstances that were not their own making. Events like this in Rotherham allow anyone suffering from health issues to talk openly with the experts.
“With local doctors and hospitals busier than ever too many of us put off visiting a health professional and neglect problems that could soon become serious. We are there to raise awareness of how to improve, not just your health, but your families and friends who make up the local community.
“We’re delighted to have the support of some fantastic charities and prestigious organisations and be able to offer free health checks and advice to the general public.”
