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.

    “Workers’ Memorial Day is an important moment to reflect on the terrible impact that asbestos has had on so many lives and these recent HSE figures highlight the sad reality that we see day to day in our work. “That reality is many people are dying due to asbestos exposure in the past. The majority of those were exposed to asbestos at work, and were completely unaware of the dangers of the hazardous material. “Many of these deaths were entirely preventable and resulted overwhelmingly from negligence or a breach of statutory duty on the part of employers who failed to fulfil their legal obligation to provide safe working conditions for their workforce.”
