I’m a Chartered Legal Executive, FILEX, in our London office, specializing in personal injury claims. I've worked in Law for about 20 years.
I act for both Claimants and Defendants (mainly large European insurers) on a wide range of claims including road accidents, accidents in the workplace and public spaces. These claims range from minor injuries to catastrophic injury claims, including brain damage, amputation and fatal accidents. I can also help with non-bodily injury motor claims involving high value credit hire.
All of my claims involve an international element, whether someone has been injured when visiting the UK or the accident has taken place abroad. These cases frequently involve cross-border and jurisdictional issues as well as the application of foreign law.
What inspired you to get into law?
I've always wanted to work in a developing and ever changing area, I enjoy the challenge of no two days ever being the same.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I enjoy getting the best result for my client and sourcing and locating the information that enables me to do so.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
Irwin Mitchell has a flexible working approach which means that I can balance my outside interests around my work.
What do you do away from the office?
I’m a keen gardener and I’m currently in the process of refurbishing my 1720s cottage.
