I am a Partner in the Serious Injury team, based in our London office. I joined Irwin Mitchell in 2006 and specialise in complex cases involving life changing injuries; I have a particular interest in brain injury.
I am accredited by APIL as a senior litigator and am a member of the Law Society's Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme.
In addition to my case work I have close links with Headway, the brain injury charity: I was appointed as a Trustee of Headway East London in 2013. I am also a Committee member for the Acquired Brain Injury Forum for London (ABIL) and am keen to raise awareness of acquired brain injury across London and the UK.
I am passionate about rehabilitation and have extensive experience of securing interim payments for my clients to ensure that their rehabilitation can start as soon as possible.
Jaxx Cave, one of my clients, suffered serious head injuries in a road accident. She's since made a remarkable recovery, which you can follow in the online mini series below. Read more about Jaxx's story here.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I became a personal injury lawyer to help make a difference to people who need clear and skilled advice at a traumatic time of their lives.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Whilst my priority is to obtain the best possible settlements for my clients, I find it most satisfying to help to bring some sense of normality back to their lives after a serious and often life changing injury.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
I work within a team of highly skilled solicitors of all levels of experience. We often share our knowledge and experiences and this is invaluable to the development of our team. I feel proud to work with such highly skilled and dedicated colleagues, who do all they can to support their clients.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I love visiting London's amazing art galleries and theatres but with two young boys, I spend most of my spare time playing football.
