I am a solicitor working within the Medical Negligence team in Birmingham, representing clients based in the West Midlands and Wales in claims against NHS Trusts, GPs and other healthcare professionals.

I specialise in cases involving injuries and fatalities caused by negligent surgery or treatment including mental health treatment, delays in diagnosis, misdiagnoses and injuries caused to mothers and babies during birth.

I am proactive in my approach to my work and always take care of my clients and their families with a sensitive and compassionate nature. I am a kind and approachable person and ensure that my clients feel at ease in my company.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I pursued a career in law as I wanted to make a difference to people's lives and to be part of a sector that is continuously evolving and improving.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I enjoy meeting kind and caring people and helping them during what can be an extremely difficult period in their lives.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Irwin Mitchell has extremely experienced teams nationwide who are leading Medical Negligence dedicated solicitors. This provides me with specialist knowledge and access to a variety of resources.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

When I am not at work, I like to catch up with friends and family. I am an active person and enjoy going to the gym, cycling and playing touch rugby. When in need of some downtime I like going to watch Worcester Warriors play rugby or I turn to a good book or film.
