I specialise in representing children and adults who have suffered brain and/or spinal cord injuries, amputations or multiple trauma.
I have extensive experience in obtaining substantial interim payments to fund treatment, rehabilitation and other professional support for my clients, as well as securing adapted accommodation and specialist equipment where this is needed.
I lead a team of specialist serious injury lawyers at the Bristol office.

"We received excellent service and advice over a three year period, right from the very first consultation at their offices with James Davies and then Georgina Ife. We obtained their name from the Headway Brain Injury Association panel of specialist legal advisers and solicitors. They were always available, held a number of office consultations and phone conferences and secured an entirely satisfactory award and outcome. Would recommend this company if anyone is in the unfortunate position of needing their specialist help and advice." – Stephen Ogden, Client
"It was a complex case and was dealt with brilliantly – thanks to Deborah Rose, Georgie, James and Vince. I would highly recommend them." – Mandy Andrews, Client
I was attracted to the law by the issues involved and have always enjoyed meeting people from all walks of life.
The opportunity to help those who have suffered the most severe injuries has always driven me, and making a real difference is particularly fulfilling. Every client is different, and getting it right for each individual is vital.
The positive energy from being surrounded by highly skilled professionals, all dedicated to doing their very best for our clients.
I get outdoors as often as possible, usually with my three young sons, and that keeps me fit. I am a lifelong rugby and cricket fan, and also specialise in losing golf balls on any course provided.
