I'm a Senior Associate in the Medical Negligence team, based in Irwin Mitchell’s London office. I joined the firm in 2008.
I studied Law at the University of Birmingham before completing the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law. I am also accredited as a Senior Litigator with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
I have a diverse caseload of medical law claims, including cases of negligent misdiagnosis, surgery and delays in referral. I represent families who have been bereaved as a result of substandard medical practice and I also have a special interest in cosmetic surgery cases, regularly advising on the outcome of surgeries including breast surgery, rhinoplasty and abdominoplasty.
I take ownership of cases at the earliest stage, with an immediate emphasis on securing rehabilitation for those clients in need, where interim funding is available. I strive to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients and pursue cases against NHS Trusts, GPs and medical professionals in private practice.
