I am a Partner in the Leeds Personal Injury department. I head a team dealing with road traffic, work accident and public liability claims involving a wide variety of injuries and values.
I also head the Personal Injury Professional Negligence team responsible for advising client in respect to claims against solicitors and barristers arising out of poorly/negligently handled personal injury and clinical negligence cases.
I am National Head of Road Traffic Crash claims and National Head of General Accident claims with national responsibility within the firm for the coordination of these areas of the Department with responsibility of training, business development and process and report to the PI National Executive. I am also National Head of Personal Injury Professional Negligence.
I sit on the PI Department's Best Practice Group. I am also Counsel Liaison for the Personal Injury Department responsible for managing the Department's relationship with counsel's chambers.
I became a lawyer because I wanted a rewarding job and to do a job helping individuals. Being a lawyer also allows me to satisfy my love of a good argument.
Helping injured people get their lives back together. As a Partner and manager in the practice, I enjoy being able to develop young lawyers.
The challenging work that is attracted by the firm's reputation.
I have a young family and therefore much of my spare time is spent with my children. When I do get time, I enjoy climbing (it helped overcome my fear of heights) and clay pigeon shooting.

“This is a terribly tragic case, and this week has been hard for Paul’s family to relive what happened to him.
Unfortunately, the constraints of the inquest process do not allow the family to receive all the answers to their questions and they are now preparing for the HSE prosecution which will examine more details of the case and hopefully provide them with the answers they seek.”
“We are proud to support SNAPS and the work done by the charity across Leeds.
This generous grant from the Freemasons will no doubt help them to continue with what they do to help families in the area.”
“We are proud to support SNAPS as our Leeds office Charity of the Year, as they do a lot of fantastic work across Leeds.
I’m pleased that we could give something back to them through our fund-raising, as a thank you for everything they do for the local community.”
“We see first-hand just how important awareness of mental health is, both awareness from the individual and those who care for them.
“Unfortunately, we have acted for those who have lost a loved one due to them being let down when they went to seek help.
“The stress and pressure on the NHS is well-known, and those who work in it do a fantastic job helping those in need. Like all industries though, there are areas where room for improvement exists. Mental health is one of these areas.”
