I am a solicitor in the Medical Negligence and Child Abuse teams in Birmingham. I have worked for Irwin Mitchell since 2009 when I started as a trainee solicitor.
I specialise in a range of medical law work including cases against hospitals, GPs and other health professionals.
My case load is varied and includes cases involving brain injury, spinal injury, amputations, substandard surgery, fatality and failure to diagnose serious conditions.
I also specialise in abuse cases. I represent individuals who have experienced sexual, physical and emotional abuse. I have represented clients in cases against schools, religious organisations, local authorities and children's homes. I specialise in cases where individuals have been abused by medical professionals.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
When I was at secondary school I was fortunate to get some work experience at a local law firm who specialised in personal injury cases. I learnt how a solicitor could help people who had been through very difficult experiences and this hugely appealed to me. I then decided to study law at university.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I find the investigation process of cases very rewarding as I can often find answers for my clients about what has happened to them. I find that clients really appreciate this as they can often feel that they have previously been ignored and not listened to.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
I am proud to work for Irwin Mitchell given its excellent reputation and the extremely talented team of people I get to work with.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I am a keen tennis player and I play tennis every week at my local tennis club. I also enjoy travel and spending time with friends and family.
