I have a particular specialism in representing clients who have suffered serious and life changing injuries. I represent clients who have suffered traumatic brain/spinal injuries, amputations and poly traumas. I regularly work with clients and their families securing financial awards to facilitate ongoing care and treatment.
I handle complex personal injury claims arising out of road traffic accidents and accidents at work. I have successfully represented clients to secure awards in the High Court and against compensatory schemes, such as the Motor Insurer Bureau. I also handle claims involving fatal accidents however they are caused.
- Representing a client in a successful Arbitration Appeal, where the value of the claim exceeds of £5million.
- Negotiating a settlement where the client suffered a traumatic brain injury and was awarded funds to facilitate ongoing support for the rest of his life.
What inspired you to get into law?
I have always been fascinated with the legal system and remember admiring advocacy; a skill I wanted to master because public speaking was always a challenge for me. Although, my current role does not lend itself to advocacy a great deal, this is definitely where my interested started.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
There is no better feeling then helping clients and their families secure financial security to facilitate ongoing care, support and treatment to someone with life changing injuries and knowing you are making a difference to their lives.
What do you do away from the office?
Out of the office, my time is mostly spent with friends and family. In the summer, a festival or two is likely to be on my to-do list, whereas the winter is more likely to keep me indoors watching a theatre production or comedy gig. I love food so I don’t need much of an excuse to eat out and sample different menus. I enjoy keeping fit and will “occasionally” take part in a charity run or physical event (my last being the Bath Half Marathon).
