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.
I wanted to become a solicitor to help people, who through no fault of their own, have been injured or developed illnesses.
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.
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.
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.
“Mesothelioma is an extremely aggressive, and sadly, incurable, form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos dust and fibres – something which leads to the death of more than 2,500 people in the UK every year.
“We are investigating Frank’s exposure during his time at West Midlands Police and hope that those who worked alongside him will come forward with any information they have about the presence of asbestos and what measures were in place to protect officers and staff from exposure to the deadly dust and fibres.
“We hope to help Frank’s family understand how and where he was exposed to asbestos as they continue to seek answers following his sudden death just mere months after his diagnosis.”
“Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related disease for which there is sadly no cure.
“Companies have been well aware of the risks associated with exposing staff to asbestos since before the 1950s so there is no excuse for workers not to have been properly protected.
“Any former employees who worked at Danny Lynch Builders, Coventry City Council or Courtaulds Engineering throughout the 1960s and early 1970s should get in touch as any information, no matter how small, could help us with our investigation and give Frank’s family the answers they deserve.”
“Mesothelioma is a particularly aggressive form of cancer which has a poor prognosis for those once they are diagnosed. It can cause a significant amount of pain and suffering for victims like Jayne, as well as family and friends who see their loved ones in distress.
“Jayne should not have been exposed to asbestos whilst she was at work and we urge anyone who was familiar with the GCHQ Oakley site to come forward. Any information in relation to maintenance work or asbestos exposure at the blocks at this site will be hugely helpful for our investigations into Jayne’s exposure.
“We understand the sensitivities of the GCHQ employees being subject to the Official Secrets Act and would not be asking anyone to reveal any sensitive information regarding the nature of their work at GCHQ. It is only information about the buildings on site and the site itself that we are seeking to obtain.”
“Mesothelioma is an aggressive and incurable cancer which has a significant impact on the life of those affected by it.
“The inhalation of asbestos fibres can lead to severe health consequences. Bob’s case highlights the risks being present, not only in a factory or industrial environment but also in an office environment, where inadequate measures were put in place to prevent asbestos from circulating in the work area.
“We hope to speak to any of Bob’s former colleagues or those who worked as contractors at Cedar House who may hold vital information about the presence of asbestos and the working conditions in this building.”
