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.

    “The last few years have been an extremely traumatic for my client and his family as they tried to come to terms with how all their lives have changed forever. “While we are pleased with the outcome of today’s hearing, no amount of money can ever make up for the fact that my client and his family would rather not be in this situation at all. “This case vividly highlights the consequences that families can be left to deal with because of drivers not paying attention. We urge motorists to take care on the roads at all times so other families don’t have to suffer the pain and hurt that our client and his family have, and will continue to face.”

    Teenage Motorcyclist Reveals Battle To Overcome Serious Injuries Caused By Driver Opening Car Door On Him

However he still requires specialist therapies to continue his recovery. “His case vividly highlights the devastating consequences that vulnerable road users such as motorcyclists can face because of other road users not paying attention. “We join Ryan in using Road Safety Week to remind motorists of the need to pay attention at all times and will continue to support him to maximise his recovery.”
