I am a Solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in Sheffield and I’ve worked at Irwin Mitchell since 2012. I also supervise colleagues in the Team.
I act exclusively for clients who have suffered an injury or deterioration in their health due to poor care by hospitals, GPs and other healthcare providers. I have experience of dealing with a wide range of cases, including:
- Negligent surgery
- Failures to diagnose and treat
- Injuries caused to mother and baby during birth
- Spinal injuries
- Fatal claims
- Delay in diagnosis of cancer
- Injuries caused to the bowel.
I have a special interest in the mismanagement of diabetes (often leading to amputation) and ophthalmic cases. I am part of special interest groups focusing on these areas.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
It sounds cliché but the main reason I became a solicitor was to help people.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I’m driven by helping and supporting my clients throughout the course of their case. I often meet people who are suffering and need answers to move on with their lives. I try my best to be as accessible as possible and I’m passionate about achieving the best result for all of my clients.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
I work in a passionate and dedicated team who do their absolute best for their clients. This includes lawyers, client liaison managers and litigation assistants.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I enjoy spending time with my young family (who definitely keep me on my toes). I love interior design and I am constantly redecorating my boys’ bedrooms.
