I am a Senior Associate Solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in Sheffield.
I specialise in clinical negligence claims and inquests and have over 13 years of experience in this field. During this time, I have dealt with a wide range of complex and high value cases, including those involving children who have sustained life-changing injuries following birth, such as cerebral and Erbs palsy. I have also represented individuals who have suffered brain and spinal injuries as a result of negligent medical treatment.
I have a special interest in fatal accident claims and inquests, representing bereaved families in the Coroner’s court.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I wanted to enter a profession that involved helping people. I’d always had a keen interest in the law and following a period of work experience at a local solicitors practice, I decided that route was for me.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I often meet individuals at very difficult and distressing times in their lives, whether because of a life changing injury, or the loss of a loved one. Having the chance to secure not just compensation for clients and their families, but also the rehabilitation and support they need going forward makes my job very rewarding.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I enjoy spending time with family and friends, particularly my young son and husband. This usually involves some sort of train-related activity – my son’s obsession!
I am also a keen traveller and as I can I like to indulge this past time.
