I qualified as a Solicitor in 1994 and have worked since in both London and Manchester in the field of personal injury law. In London, I worked at a prominent civil liberties firm working on serious injury cases, where I was also involved in the Public Inquiries into and cases arising from both the Southall and Paddington rail disasters which I attended on behalf of victims of disasters, survivors and families.
I joined Jefferies in 2001, becoming first a Partner in the Firm and thereafter a Director when the Partnership became a limited company. I now specialise in catastrophic injury claims acting on behalf of clients with acquired brain and other life-changing injuries. I have experience of implementing case management regimes and working with protected parties.
I have helped individuals with injuries ranging from mild cognitive difficulties to catastrophic brain injuries requiring 24-hour care and am experienced in the appointment of Case Managers and setting up rehabilitation regimes.
I am an APIL accredited senior litigator and have been accredited by the Law Society Personal Injury panel.
In March 2019, I was appointed as a Deputy District Judge on the Northern Circuit.
