I am an associate solicitor in the Serious Injury team, based in Irwin Mitchell's London office. I am also accredited as a Brain Injury Specialist and Senior Litigator with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
Since qualifying as a solicitor, I have supported clients who have sustained life-changing injuries, in particular advising clients about traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and multiple traumas. I also represent individuals' families and loved ones following fatal accidents, which includes attending inquests. As an experienced biker and cyclist myself, I lend that understanding to specialising in acting for clients who have been involved in motorcycle or cycling collisions.
I am passionate about securing my clients interim payments wherever possible, so that I can put in place the appropriate rehabilitation, care package and accommodation before the claim has concluded. My colleagues and I work to improve the quality of life for our clients, overcoming the impact of a serious injury as best we can. I also work to ensure that partners and family get the help that they need, as well as support and assist them through the process.
I am also experienced with cases regarding incidents in public places or the workplace, as well as domestic air crashes. I also have expertise in acting for victims of childhood sexual abuse.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I wanted to be able to make a real, tangible difference to people's lives.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Seeing clients gain access to early rehabilitation, care and support through compensation, and knowing that they can rebuild and restore their quality of life.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
The main advantage of working for a large leading firm is the breadth of knowledge and expertise among my colleagues, enabling me to work collaboratively to support my clients, working together to repair shattered lives.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
Either tackling green lanes on my BMW 1200GS, or - when time and family allow - going away on adventure motorcycle trips, the most recent being to Nepal and Morocco. Closer to home, I enjoy tennis, cycling and spending time with my family.
