I am a solicitor in the team in Leeds. I have over 12 years of experience specialising in workplace injury. I studied law at Sheffield University before moving to York. I worked for a York-based firm for over 10 years before joining Irwin Mitchell to become part of the Asbestos Related Disease team.
My previous clients have praised the caring and compassionate manner with which I have dealt with their cases. I aim to support all of my clients through the process of their claim.
As a team, we are involved in various fundraising activities throughout the year to raise money for a number of charities who are breaking boundaries in researching new treatment options for mesothelioma patients.
"We engaged Irwin Mitchell to pursue a claim on behalf of my father-in-law, who tragically died from mesothelioma. At all stages of the process the team demonstrated exceptional skills, experience, professionalism and empathy. I would strongly recommend Irwin Mitchell to anyone who is thinking of pursuing a compensation claim for Mesothelioma or any other occupational illness and injury." – Client
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I have always had a keen interest in the law and wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to provide a service to individuals in need while at the same time following this interest. As part of the team in Leeds I am definitely required to do this.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Being involved on a personal level to help and support clients during a usually difficult time in their lives and making their journey as smooth as possible.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I have 2 young children and enjoy spending time with the family away from the office. I like going for walks and exploring locally as well as taking advantage of the culture and activities that Leeds, York and the surrounding areas have to offer. I am also welfare officer to my local village junior football team.
