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
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.
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.
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.
"Workers’ Memorial Day is an important time to reflect on the dangers that the UK’s workforce have faced through the years and the terrible legacy of asbestos is well known to many people. As such it is very welcome to see this year’s commemorations focus on this issue.
“Derek’s family are understandably desperate for answers regarding his death and we are determined to do everything we can to help them.
“In order to move this case forward we need more information regarding potential asbestos exposure that Derek may have faced, so we would be hugely grateful to anyone who may be able to help us.”
“This is sadly yet another tragic case where we believe an individual has gone on to develop an asbestos-related illness many years after exposure to the material.
“Asbestos has affected so many lives through the decades and it is welcome that this year’s Workers’ Memorial Day is all about shining a spotlight on the impact that this material and many others have had.
“We would be hugely grateful to anyone who may be able to help us regarding Patricia’s case, as any detail no matter how small could make a huge difference in helping her family gain justice in her memory.”
“This is a truly terrible case which once again highlights the devastating consequences of asbestos exposure. Celia’s death is perhaps made even more tragic by the fact that seven other members of her family all died as a result of asbestos-related conditions too.
“While asbestos is no longer used as a freely as it once was, this year’s Workers’ Memorial Day is an important time to reflect on the legacy of the material and why safety must always come first in the future.
“The shocking problems of the past must never be repeated again and employers need to recognise the dangers that the material can pose.”
“Sadly, this is yet another which highlights the devastating impact that asbestos exposure can have, with Christopher going on to develop mesothelioma many years after his contact with the material is thought to have taken place.
“His family remain desperate for answers regarding the illness and we are now keen to hear from anyone who can shed light on these employers. Any amount of detail could make a huge difference to the case.”
