I specialise in personal injury and clinical negligence claims for clients who have suffered catastrophic injuries in the following areas; brain damage (including cerebral palsy,) ophthalmic, spinal and amputation cases. I also act as Court of Protection Deputy for clients who have lost capacity to deal with their financial affairs.
I am an accredited PI Panel member at the Law Society and a Senior Litigator with the association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL). I am listed in the directories of charities at Headway, Child Brain Injury trust (CBIT) and the Spinal Injury Association.
I trained at DAC Beachcroft in London and have previously worked at Greenwoods and W Davies, spanning a career in this field over 30 years.
Outside work I enjoy skiing, sailing and cycling and have a keen interest in cooking. My labradoodle also keeps me active and fit.
