I am a Partner and head of Irwin Mitchell's South Coast Asbestos team operating from Southampton. I have particular expertise in representing mesothelioma patients and their families.
I secured a landmark victory for my client in the Court of Appeal in the matter of Haxton v. Philips Electronics UK Ltd.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I find the law fascinating and wanted to make a real and meaningful difference to people's lives.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
It is enormously rewarding to be able to assist clients who have been diagnosed with an asbestos related condition and help them recover compensation, which can assist them in many different ways, from adaptations around the home, to a family holiday. I am passionate about working in asbestos law.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
I am particularly proud of Irwin Mitchell's commitment to be at the cutting edge of law, and to go the extra mile for each and every client.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I enjoy running, playing netball, singing in the Irwin Mitchell choir and spending time with friends and family.
