I am a solicitor in the Newcastle workplace injury team and I specialise in claims for people who have developed asbestos-related illnesses. In particular, I have experience of dealing with claims for mesothelioma, asbestosis, asbestos-related lung cancer and pleural thickening.
I qualified as a solicitor in September 2013 after having spent two years dealing with various types of personal injury claims, including catastrophic brain injury cases, various types of industrial accidents and clinical negligence work. As such, I have gained a broad range of experience to date, but my special interests are now focussed on asbestos-related illnesses.
I am an active member of the North East Medico-Legal Society, the North East Junior Lawyers' Division and the Newcastle upon Tyne Law Society.
I have always enjoyed a challenge and I find that the ever changing nature of the law ensures that I am always learning something new. No two days are ever the same.
Being able to obtain a sense of justice for clients who have suffered injuries and illnesses as a result of simply going to work every day to earn a living.
I like being part of a large national team with access to a number of resources and an ethos which places its clients at the forefront of the services it provides.
I enjoy going to zumba, swimming and spending time with friends and family.
"I had total confidence in Emma and her team, and cannot praise them highly enough." - Brian Carnegie, client
"My solicitor Emma Tordoff in charge of my case was very efficient and a true professional and her communication throughout was second to none.” - Jackie, client
“This is sadly another example of where an individual has died from an asbestos-related condition possibly many decades after his initial exposure to the material took place.
“Such cases highlight the devastating impact that asbestos can have on so many lives and how families are often left desperate for answers regarding how the contact occurred.
“We would be hugely grateful to anyone who may be able to provide any information which could help this family gain the answers and justice they deserve.”
“Our client’s story is yet another which highlights the devastating impact that exposure to asbestos can have, with him developing a serious illness many decades after contact is thought to have taken place.
“Following our investigations, we are keen to gather more details regarding the conditions and work undertaken by Chemical & Insulating Co at its Scotswood Road site and we would be hugely grateful to anyone who may be able to help us with this.
“Such information could prove key as we look to secure James the answers and justice he deserves regarding his condition.”
“Just a couple of months on from her death, Jean’s family remain understandably devastated by their loss and are desperate to understand how she came to develop mesothelioma.
“We are determined to ensure that Jean’s loved ones gain justice regarding her death and would be hugely grateful to anyone who may be able to shed further light on the presence of asbestos at this site and the working conditions that Jean would have generally faced.”
“This is yet another example of the terrible consequences that asbestos exposure can have on somebody, years after the exposure.
“Following our instruction, we have been working to develop a clearer picture of our client’s work history and are now keen to know more regarding what he would have faced during his time at Richmond Decorators (NE) Ltd.
“We would be hugely grateful to anyone who may be able to come forward and support our work, as any detail no matter how small could prove vital to our efforts.”
