I am a solicitor and senior associate having qualified in 1996. Since then I have specialised in representing clients suffering from asbestos-related diseases. I appreciate what a difficult time it can be for clients and their families when diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer. I aim to make the claims process as smooth as possible, dealing with claims quickly and sensitively. I am actively involved in supporting local asbestos victims' support groups and was a trustee of a local group for 15 years. I am a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers with senior litigator and specialist asbestos disease claims accreditation.
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff most sincerely for the sensitive and caring way in which my claim was dealt with on all levels; home visits, telephone calls and letters. I was kept fully informed throughout and this enabled the whole process, at a difficult time, to be a lot less stressful than it might otherwise have been. It will always be much appreciated." – Client
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I find it rewarding meeting clients and fighting for them in a claim, as well as helping with any practical issues such as welfare benefits and liaison with other support services.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I enjoy spending time with family, walking in the Peak District and generally trying to keep up with the energy levels of our two sons!
