I work with a wide range of people who are seriously injured or have lost a loved one due to negligent treatment from GPs, hospitals and private doctors. I have experience of acting in fatal cases and assisting families with the inquest process.
I manage my own case load covering a wide range of medical issues, including:
- Surgical, spinal and orthopaedic injuries
- Infectious diseases
- Delayed diagnosis of stroke
- Delayed diagnosis of cancer cases.
I also assist a Partner in complex and high-value claims involving birth injuries, and hold accredited Litigator status with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
Before joining Irwin Mitchell, I specialised in working on child brain injury claims. I'm particularly passionate about securing early access to the support and rehabilitation needed for the injured child and their families.
I studied English Literature at Durham University before completing a law conversion course in London.
What inspired you to get into law?
I wanted to work in an area that was intellectually challenging. I'm passionate about helping people and achieving justice.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I'm able to see the benefits of rehabilitation and support and the improvement it can make to people’s lives. I feel privileged to play small part in that process.

What do you do away from the office?
