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.
“The terrible legacy of asbestos has touched so many lives through the years and Action Mesothelioma Day is a chance to reflect on the issue.
“Kenneth and his family have been devastated by his diagnosis. While nothing can make up for what has happened we at least hope we can provide them with the answers they deserve about his diagnosis before it’s too late.
“Therefore we would appeal for anyone who worked with Kenneth or anyone who remembers Glaves Builders’ estates being constructed and who has information about conditions on site to come forward.”
“Christopher’s death is yet another heart-breaking case which highlights the awful impact asbestos exposure has.
“Jeanne and Christopher were looking forward to spending their retirement together and had so many plans in place, yet mesothelioma took that away from them.
“While we are pleased to have helped Jeanne secure answers regarding Christopher’s death, we hope that this case will also act as an important reminder as to why safety must always come first with asbestos.
“We also hope the funds recovered for Springhill Hospice will prove to be a major help.”
“This is sadly yet another case in which a man who worked in an industrial environment for many years has gone on to develop an asbestos-related cancer.
While Anthony has provided us with a comprehensive account of his contact with asbestos during his time with these employers, we now require further details in order to move his search for answers and justice forward.
While medical staff sadly cannot do anything for Anthony with regards to curing his cancer, we at least hope we can provide Anthony and his family with vital answers and also help him receive the quality care and treatment he deserves.
As such, we would be hugely grateful to anyone who may be able to shed light on these companies.”
"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.”
