I am a Senior Associate Solicitor with over 12 years experience in medical negligence litigation. I deal with a wide variety of different clinical negligence claims:
Complex and catastrophic neurological injuries, including
- Adult brain
- Spinal cord injuries
- Paediatric brain, spinal cord and birth injuries.
Obstetric and gynaecological injuries, including
- Perineal tears
- Damage to reproductive organs requiring the need for surrogacy
- Bladder and bowel injuries.
I also act for clients on orthopaedic and amputation claims as well as delays in the diagnosis of cancer.
I have represented families at Inquest in order to establish answers as to why their loved ones passed away.
I support Group B Strep Support and have provided training to hospitals in the North West regarding neonatal injuries arising out of Group B Strep infection.
What inspired you to get into law?
I have always been interested in medicine and the law. Whilst at university studying law, I undertook work experience in a local high street personal injury firm. I quickly became involved in clinical negligence cases there, and I really enjoyed the work and I decided that medical negligence would be the area for me.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I like helping people and try to go the extra mile to get the best outcome for clients. I feel very rewarded when I look back at a case and see how a client's quality of life has improved as a consequence of my help.
I also get great satisfaction from putting together all of the pieces of the case, like a puzzle, and working through it to get the answers that a client deserves.

"Truly excellent service and support. I could not have asked for a better team to represent my family and I with our case. Sharon Williams, Shahin Masters, Emma Lambourne and Vicki Turner went above and beyond throughout the case. They were patient with me and tenacious with the defence. When the restrictions of COVID-19 were implemented, I continued to receive fantastic support. Ultimately we were successful in our case, we could not have reached this position without the amazing team assigned to my case at Irwin Mitchell." - 5* Trustpilot review from Zoe Stephenson, client
