I lead our non asbestos related disease team and have specialised in this area since 1992. I have a specialist interest in noise induced hearing loss, Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome/Vibration White Finger, dermatitis, RSI and asthma. As a dedicated claimant personal injury lawyer I'm involved with APIL and have acted for thousands of clients with work related diseases.
I have written articles published in the APIL newsletter.
