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 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
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.
I like the commitment everyone has for their clients. I enjoy working with such a knowledgeable and supportive team that is independently ranked as the leading law firm in this area for asbestos disease claims.
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!
“As a boy innocently joining his dad at work on a Saturday, Kevin would have had no idea of the dangers that he was potentially exposed to.
“A case of this nature is a terrible reminder of the devastating impact that asbestos can have on those who come into contact with it.
“Kevin’s family is determined to honour his memory by obtaining the answers as to how he contracted mesothelioma, something he was not able to achieve before his death.
“We would urge anyone with information which could help to come forward as soon as possible. We are keen to hear from anyone who worked at Nottingham City Hospital’s maintenance department, particularly as a plumber during the 1960s and 1970s, to contact us about the working environment.”
“Mesothelioma is a form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos dust fibres. It is responsible for the deaths of more than 2,500 people in the UK every year.
“We are investigating Julie’s exposure during her time at Bestobell Valves and hope that those who worked alongside her, or elsewhere on the premises, during the 70s and early 1980s will come forward with any information they have about the presence of asbestos and what measures were in place to protect staff from exposure to the dust and fibres.
“We hope to help Julie and her family understand how and where she became exposed to asbestos.”
It’s devastating for people to find out that they have developed a condition caused by exposure to asbestos decades earlier simply because they went to work every day, particularly when the condition is incurable, as it was in this case.
“Unfortunately, Dale’s death came before his case could be fully investigated and we are now calling on anyone who worked with him to come forward to help, and his family, understand how and where he came into contact with the substance that was responsible for his death at such a young age.
“His family has been devastated by their loss and understandably want to know why their husband and father was taken from them at such an early age and if more could have been done to protect him while he was at work.”
Mesothelioma is a cancer for which the only known cause is exposure to asbestos dust. It is an illness which could have been avoided simply by precautions being taken in the workplace.
“We hope that Nora’s former colleagues will be able to come forward with any information about the conditions at Middlewood Hospital as it may prove vital in obtaining justice for the family.
“The dangers and risks to health from exposure to asbestos dust have been known for a very long time. The first regulations to protect workers from inhaling asbestos dust were made law in 1931 yet all too often, very sadly we see workers lost their lives decades later because they were not warned of the dangers or given the correct safety equipment.”
