Prior to joining Irwin Mitchell in February 2011, I served with Northumbria Police for over 33 years. I specialised in roads policing and my main roles were as a Family Liaison Coordinator and Lead Investigator into fatal and serious road traffic collisions.

I draw on my previous experience in these areas in dealing with clients, witnesses and police staff. I maintain a close liaison with numerous police forces throughout England and Wales in the area of roads policing, assisting police forces when I can.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

Following my police career and dealing with injured and bereaved families, I'm acutely aware of the impact that a road traffic collision can have on individuals and families. I'm committed to give families the correct advice in relation to civil matters to give them a positive outcome to the trauma that they have suffered from a road traffic collision.

What's The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

To see a positive outcome for families and individuals after suffering trauma. I'm still very passionate in the area of roads policing and the positive impact that a professional investigation can have on this outcome.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I work with a dedicated team of individuals throughout the firm and the county. It's a pleasure to see the passion and professionalism in the firm, working for positive outcomes for clients.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I enjoy my family life with my wife and son, plus our two Labrador dogs. I regularly walk with my dogs on the beaches on the coast near where I live and in hills and valleys of beautiful Northumberland. I'm also a keen skier and cyclist.
