I am a solicitor with over 9 years’ experience specialising in both serious injury litigation and child abuse law. I am an APIL accredited Senior Litigator and a member of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers.
I deal with cases involving traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries, fatalities and complex orthopaedic injuries, including amputations. I also represent bereaved families who have lost family members in accidents.
I represent victims of child abuse in cases against both individual abusers and institutions including schools, the church and local authorities.
I actually decided at a very young age that I wanted to become a lawyer and I am grateful that I later chose to specialise in an area of law that enables me to work with such a broad and diverse range of clients. And working at Irwin Mitchell means I get to work with – and learn from – some of the most dedicated and pioneering lawyers in the country.
Knowing that I can make a real difference to people’s lives. Nobody chooses to be injured and to be involved in litigation and I realise how daunting a process it can be. However, when you achieve a fantastic settlement for a client and you are able to put the right rehabilitation and support in place to enable them to rebuild their life, it is extremely rewarding to see.
“This is sadly yet another case in which someone has abused their position of power in the worst way imaginable.
“It can be incredibly difficult for abuse survivors to speak out about their ordeals but our client has shown amazing courage to come forward and share his story.
“He remains very concerned that others may have been affected by similar issues and we would urge anyone who may have been to not suffer in silence.
“There has been a huge sea change in how such issues are now handled and people can rest assured that authorities will always handle their cases in the most sensitive manner.”
“This is a truly shocking case which not only highlights how efforts to protect vulnerable children have thankfully moved on massively in recent decades, but also the lasting impact that this kind of horrific abuse can have on people.
“The nightmare our client endured has had a huge bearing on her life. She showed incredible courage in coming forward and contacting the police which resulted in the abuser being sentenced to 20 years’ in prison, reflecting the depravity of his crimes.
“I cannot praise her enough for the bravery she has shown. While the settlement is one of the largest handed down in this type of case, the judge emphasised that he felt no figure would make up for what our client has been through.
“However, we hope that it will at least now allow her to look to the future and begin the process of moving on with her life.
“It is important the survivors of abuse do not feel they have to live in silence as there is support available.”
