I am a Chartered Legal Executive lawyer in the Serious Injury team in Southampton, acting for clients from all walks of life who have suffered life-changing injuries. These injuries can result from road traffic accidents, accidents at work, accidents in a public place, defective products and more. My practice includes acting for clients with a number of different injuries including orthopaedic injuries, internal trauma, brain injury and spinal injury.
I qualified in 2016, and have a total of 5 years experience in personal injury law. I specialise in road traffic accidents, and have acted for drivers, passengers, pedestrians, passengers on-board buses, coaches and taxis, HGV drivers, cyclists, motorcyclists and people involved in motorsport. I have a strong passion for road safety. I am strongly client focused, and believe that rehabilitation plays a crucial part in a successful claim. To that end, I will always work with the Defendant insurer to ensure clients receive the best rehabilitation possible and, if liability is denied, will guide clients through the litigation process whilst ensuring that all possible NHS support is being utilised.
What inspired you to get into law?
I always knew that I wanted to be a lawyer. When I got to university level, I had never really considered personal injury. Once I graduated, I secured a role in a personal injury firm, and fell in love with the area. It suits my personality, and it’s really rewarding to be able to help people get life back-on-track after a serious injury.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
It is an enormous responsibility, and privilege, to be there for people when the worst has happened, and they have sustained a serious injury. It’s incredibly rewarding to be able to help people put their lives back together, and focus on re-building their future.
What do you do away from the office?
I am a volunteer controller at SERV Wessex, a charity that provides out-of-hours blood transport services to the NHS. I am passionate about motorsport of most kinds, particularly the British Touring Car Championship, and try to get to as many race meetings as possible. I also enjoy travel, and learning about new places both in and out of the UK. I’m also a keen cook.
