I am an Associate Solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in Sheffield and have worked at Irwin Mitchell since 2011.
I act exclusively for Claimants against NHS Trusts, GPs and other healthcare professionals. I have experience of dealing with a wide range of cases including negligent surgery, failures to diagnose and treat, injuries caused to mother and baby during birth, amputations and spinal injuries.
I have a particular interest in cases where suicide and injuries arising from attempted suicide could have been avoided with appropriate care. I act for families whose loved one has died as a result of medical negligence and help families through the inquest process at the Coroner’s Court.
What Inspired You To Get Into law?
A combination of a desire to help people, the appeal of a varied and challenging career and a strong sense of justice.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Our clients often find that their concerns have not been listened to by those involved in their care and that they have lots of questions that have gone unanswered. As a result, I often find that the most rewarding part of my job comes at the start of a case when I sit down with a new client and tell them I can assist them with their case. I am often the first person who has listened to them properly and acknowledged their concerns.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
I am proud to work with a large team of leading medical negligence lawyers who strive to achieve the best possible outcome for every client. I also have the privilege of working with our Client Liaison Managers who provide invaluable support to clients and their families whilst their cases are ongoing, and with other teams who provide specialist advice on matters such as access to statutory services, education and the Court of Protection.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I enjoy travelling, exploring new places and learning languages. I like photography, eating out and relaxing with family and friends.
