Biography

I specialise in injuries at work, fatal and serious personal injury claims, road traffic collision claims and industrial disease claims, including asbestos-related diseases. I have extensive experience in cases against the Ministry of Defence for noise-induced hearing loss and cases involving sporting and extreme activities, such as fitness training, abseiling and mountain rescue training. 

I am a panel member of the Greater Manchester Asbestos Victims Support Group.

In the North West I work with the Communication Workers Union, Aftermath Support and I have assisted RoadPeace North West since its inception.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I became a lawyer to help people to improve their situation and where possible right the wrong they have experienced. 

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

The driving force each day is the motivation to secure the best result for my clients. 

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I enjoy all aspects of working at Irwin Mitchell, but most of all the contact with my colleagues, the depth and breadth of their expertise, professionalism and friendliness. The resources of the firm really allow you to deliver the best outcome for each client.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I am married and have two young children so family life is the centre of my universe. When I have a chance I keep fit learning self defence, Krav Maga, and boxing. This is helped by cycling to work each day.
