Biography

I have extensive experience of occupational disease claims with an emphasis on mesothelioma claims. 

I strive to provide swift, accurate and expert assistance to those suffering from the effects of mesothelioma. 

I am sensitive to the needs of clients and their families in particular with life limiting illnesses. 

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I wanted to pursue a challenging career that would make a difference to people, groups and organisations. 

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

The one thing which I enjoy the most is meeting people: discussing their problems and trying to find solutions.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Both my wife and I were born in Yorkshire and returned to bring up our young family in 2008 (two daughters, one aged six and the other eight weeks old). At the moment life is on hold following the birth of our second child in April 2014!

Of course, it is also a time to push for further research into the disease and possible cures by raising funds for research in relation to treatment and ensuring that clients have access to justice.”

Before he died, Geoffrey provided a written statement dealing with where he worked whilst employed at the British Printing Corporation but we need more information. “The dangers and risks from exposure to asbestos dust were known widely by companies from at least the 1950s.
