I'm an Associate Solicitor who specialises in complex and high value industrial disease and injury claims. I conduct cases on behalf of those suffering debilitating and life limiting illnesses, regularly recovering six-figure settlements.
In particular, I'm experienced with work-related lung disease claims including berylliosis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, silicosis, and work-related asthma. I also have extensive experience of hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) claims.
What inspired you to get into law?
I've always enjoyed the law since first studying the subject many years ago. The ever-changing nature of legal practice and constantly evolving challenges that the law present inspire me each day to work as hard as possible for the benefit of all those I represent.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I'm particularly driven to pursue difficult and legally challenging cases for people who would otherwise fail to get damages and justice for the conditions they suffer from. The most rewarding aspect of my role is succeeding in cases for those who most deserve justice and whose voices would otherwise be unheard.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
Irwin Mitchell as a firm has a unique and national reputation for delivering exceptional client service. The level and breadth of knowledge within the firm is a constant source of strength as is the fact that clients can be assured of the highest quality of legal representation no matter what their legal needs may be.
What do you do away from the office?
Away from the office I enjoy sports, with a particular passion for football and following the trials and tribulations of Oxford United!
I also enjoy walking and participating in obstacle endurance events and distance running.
