I'm a solicitor in our Personal Injury team in Birmingham, specialising in international and domestic illness claims. I have experience in cases involving outbreaks of illness, caused by pathogens such as salmonella, cryptosporidium, E. coli, legionnaires' disease and norovirus.
I've been involved in cases relating to illness outbreaks on cruise vessels, in foreign countries, at weddings and after visiting restaurants or hotels in the UK.

'Hannah acted for my Joyce and myself. We have been consistently impressed with Hannah’s professional and interpersonal skills throughout the time that she has dealt with us. Hannah sets high professional standards: she is approachable, clear, concise, consistent and very efficient. What makes Hannah stand out from other solicitors is her interpersonal skills: she is truly empathic, listening carefully and responding in a way that makes you feel that you have really been heard, she demonstrates compassion and kindness in her approach. All in all an excellent ambassador for your company.' - Mr C

Throughout, Hannah was fantastic, she took us through the process and procedure in a way that made me feel like I was informed whilst participating in a situation that was new to me.

'From start to finish Hannah has always kept me updated on what is happening. She always replies to emails either the same day or within 24 hours. She is very professional and knows her stuff. I always felt like my best interests were being looked after throughout. Any issues or concerns I had, Hannah was only willing to assist or explain what was happening. If anyone needs a solicitor to help them I would strongly recommend Hannah. She is able to explain all the legal jargon and help with anything, nothing was every to much trouble.' - Mr K
