I work as an Associate Solicitor in the serious injury team in Leeds, specialising in brain and spinal injury in both adults and children.
My largest settlement to date was for a young man who suffered brain and tetraplegia. This was a very emotional and legally challenging case resulting in a £10 million settlement. Another law firm had previously turned down the case as being unlikely to succeed.
What inspired you to get into law?
I believe in fairness and helping vulnerable people. I enjoy working on difficult cases and achieving successful outcomes.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Helping people regain the best quality of life possible after suffering life-changing injuries and taking away some of their worries about their future, such as financial uncertainty.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I enjoy working with very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly people at all levels.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy spending time with my family including the dog and generally all things outdoors such as running, walking, horses, skiing.
