I'm a Solicitor in our Southampton office, and specialise in military injury claims. I represent current service personnel, ex-military clients, and families in the event of an injury or fatal accident. In all cases, whether the accident has occurred on or off duty, I'm dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes for my clients.
I appreciate that my clients and their families may be instructing us during the most difficult and distressing time of their lives. I aim to be professional and approachable at all times, while ensuring that my clients are kept updated as their case progresses.
I've gained a wealth of experience in personal injury litigation, and have assisted on cases involving:
- Fatal accidents and inquests
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Orthopaedic injuries
- Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) claims
- Road traffic collisions.
What inspired you to get into law?
I've always been interested in how the law can be applied to help families and individuals. At all stages of a claim, I want to know that my clients are receiving the best possible rehabilitation and necessary treatment. Often clients are in a position of vulnerability – physically, mentally and financially. I wanted a role that allows me to represent and advise those people and their families, and get the help and answers that they need.
What's the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Over the lifetime of a case, you come to build a relationship with the client and their family. Throughout this, it's extremely rewarding when you assist them in obtaining the necessary rehabilitation to help get them back on track.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I'm very fortunate to work with a firm which truly values its clients above everything else, and has a wealth of resources to enable them to get the help they deserve.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy being outdoors and running with my dogs, as well as playing in my local orchestra. I also adore spending time with my nephew, while trying to get him to appreciate a game of rugby.
