I specialise in a range of medical law work including cases against hospitals, GPs and other health professionals. This may include incorrect diagnosis, surgical errors and failures in treatment of patients with mental health issues.
I also specialise in child abuse cases. I represent individuals who have experienced sexual and physical abuse and neglect. I have acted for clients in cases against local authorities, schools, religious organisations and children’s homes.
I have always had a strong sense of what is right and wrong and felt compelled to help those who, for whatever reason, are unable to speak up for themselves.
Ensuring that client's get the recognition they deserve when things go wrong and working hard to make sure they can, wherever possible, get their lives back on track.
Irwin Mitchell has a wealth of talent and resources which means that no case is too complicated or unusual for us to investigate.
I enjoy spending time with my two young children and like to travel whenever the opportunity allows.
“This is a truly shocking example of the consequences of negligent treatment of those who suffer from mental health illness.
“Mark was a vulnerable person, who needed help. He was at a place where this should have been a given, however unfortunately for him it wasn’t. This left him open to causing himself a life-changing injury.
“We welcome the health board’s decision to admit that it made failures in its care of Mark. We are committed to ensuring he receives the help and support he needs as he seeks to push on with his rehabilitation.”
“While we will obviously await the retrial, we hope that the guilty verdict will send out a supportive message.
“A message which states you will be believed and supported should you choose to come forward and you can have confidence in the justice system to hold criminals, like Higgins, to account.
“Abuse survivors often suffer in silence and we praise the bravery of those who have come forward in this case, showing extreme courage to speak out about the abuse they suffered.”
“The details which have emerged in this case are truly shocking and the ongoing investigations into the matter are welcome.
“Recent reports and subsequent confirmation by Mr Evans that more people have come forward as survivors of child sexual exploitation in Telford are an obvious cause for concern though.
“It is important that the true extent of the issue is established and that those who are survivors of it are given the support they need following their brave actions in coming forward.
“We join with Mr Evans in urging others who are survivors of child sexual exploitation in Telford to come forward. You will be believed and supported through this difficult time.”
“Since he was found guilty, we have already been contacted by those who allege that they too were abused by Bennell. As well as being contacted by others who were abused while playing junior football by adults that exploited their position of power to commit horrendous acts. The scale of the problem is horrific and those who have helped bring Bennell to justice deserve great credit for the bravery they have shown.
“We welcome the sentence that has been handed down today. It represents justice for those who were victims of Bennell’s crimes, both those who have come forward and those who are yet to.
“To those people who are yet to come forward, today’s sentence sends out a supportive message. A message which states you will be believed and supported should you choose to come forward and you can have confidence in the justice system to hold criminals, like Bennell, to account.
“Abuse survivors often suffer in silence and we praise the bravery of those who have come forward in this case, showing extreme courage to speak out about the abuse they suffered and to ensure that Bennell was brought to justice.”
