I’m a Solicitor in the Medical Negligence team based in our London office. I originally studied Law at the University of Leeds, before completing the Legal Practice Course at Northumbria University.
I specialise in representing people who’ve been injured as a result of medical negligence by healthcare providers. I also have a specialist interest in fatal claims and representing families who’ve lost a loved one at Inquest.
I manage a wide variety of cases across a range of medical issues. This includes:
- Birth injuries
- Fatal claims
Claims involving a delay in diagnosis of cancer
- Orthopaedic claims
- Surgical claims.
I also assist other members of the team in high value and complex cases involving spine and birth injuries.
I always strive to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients and aim to keep them fully informed throughout the process.
What inspired you to get into law?
Law is a challenging but rewarding career. Working in medical negligence allows me to help people and my cases offer a lot of variety.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
It’s being able to help people at difficult times in their lives. Achieving settlement allows clients to move on, breathe easier and begin rebuilding their lives. It’s extremely rewarding to be able to help them to receive compensation and rehabilitation.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I like being a part of a passionate and supportive team. My colleagues are dedicated to helping people who’ve been injured, and achieving the best possible outcome for them.
What do you do away from the office?
Outside of work I enjoy watching football (I’m a Sunderland fan, unfortunately), travelling and spending time with friends and family.
