I am a Senior Associate Solicitor specialising in claims on behalf of people who have been affected by asbestos related illnesses, particularly assisting sufferers of, and the families of those affected by, the asbestos related cancer, mesothelioma.
I have achieved a number of noteworthy settlements in cases where there has been limited exposure to asbestos, including cases brought on behalf of a number of prison officers. I have obtained substantial compensation payments for clients affected by asbestos related illnesses.
I am a good listener and I do my upmost to put my clients at ease in what can, without the appropriate support, seem a bewildering process.
I am a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I wanted to become a solicitor to help people, who through no fault of their own, have been injured or developed illnesses.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I gain a lot of satisfaction from helping people recover compensation that will help them obtain the care and assistance they need to cope with their injuries/illnesses and for those clients who are terminally ill, it enables them to provide for their families into the future.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
Irwin Mitchell cares about people, both their clients for whom they are constantly striving to provide the highest levels of service and also the staff who work for the firm.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
Away from the office I enjoy being involved in musical theatre and have been a member of a local group, putting on a large number of productions at a local theatre, for many years.
