I work as part of a team in Newcastle and Middlesbrough who act for people who have sustained brain injuries or spinal injuries as a result of an accident. I have been working with adults and children with brain and spinal injuries for over nine years, helping them to obtain financial compensation for their injuries.
I help clients to obtain early payments in their case so that they can pay for rehabilitation or more suitable accommodation that will help to improve their quality of life. Rehabilitation includes things such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological therapy, assistance from support workers and vocational training to help people to return to work.
I am a member of the Newcastle Law Society, the Tees Valley Law Society, the North of England Medico-Legal Society and the Spinal Injuries Association. I am an APIL-accredited litigator.
I like helping people and solving problems. I wanted to become a lawyer dealing with serious injury claims so that I could do my absolute best to provide clients with the legal advice they need and help them to improve their quality of life. People who have sustained serious life changing injuries need someone to advocate for them to ensure that they receive the support, treatment, therapy and financial compensation that they need, and to ensure that their needs are met for the rest of their life.
It gives me great satisfaction working as part of a team of highly dedicated personal injury experts (made up of lawyers, legal assistants, financial advisors, quantum analysts and where appropriate, experts in the Court of Protection, education, employment or public law teams). We work closely together with the common aims of implementing rehabilitation for clients, improving our client's quality of life and carefully calculating the amount of financial compensation that our client will need to ensure that their needs are met for the rest of their life.

I love spending time with my friends and family and in particular I enjoy cooking for them. I like reading, watching sport and listening to music, and I live in the countryside and enjoy outdoor activities including walking my dog, riding my bike and running. I also enjoy working with various different charities in the community and helping to fundraise for a range of different charities whenever I can.
I am the Treasurer of Headway Central Northumberland, which is a branch of the national charity Headway, the brain injury association. I was the Secretary pf Headway Central Northumberland from October 2011 to October 2013 and I was the Chair of Headway Central Northumberland from November 2015 to November 2016. I have travelled to many different countries over the last 12 years and the favourite place I have been to is New Zealand.
This was an unusual incident in which Jack suffered very serious and life-changing injuries when he was just a year old.
"The school overseen by the council could have supervised the autistic child better which may have prevented Jack from being tipped from his chair.
"Jack will be likely to need help for the rest of his life and the settlement is based on expert medical evidence about his potential future needs. Hopefully it will give the family peace of mind that he will now receive the help he needs to realise his full potential."
