Background

I am a solicitor with 10 years post qualification experience. I have mostly dealt with employers liability and public liability claims and in recent years noise induced hearing loss.

I have previously worked in both small and very large companies and have learned from some exceptionally talented lawyers. I have always run my own caseload and have previously supervised and trained two trainees solicitors.

Motivation

What aspects of your job do you enjoy the most?

Winning and achieving the best results for my clients who have suffered through no fault of my own. I also enjoy the technical challenges and contentious nature of litigation.

Why did you choose a career in the legal sector?

Unfortunately I have personal experience of pursuing a claim for medical negligence when I was much younger, which made me decide to study law at A-level. From then I quickly realised that it was the subject that I found most interesting and enjoyed.

Key cases

  • I represented a survivor of a Shoreham air disaster to recover £17,000 in damages for their post traumatic stress disorder.

  • I took a noise induced hearing loss claim to trial which lasted 3 days. This included hearing evidence not only from my client but an acoustic engineer and medical experts from both sides.

    We won and my client was awarded over £15,000 for hearing his loss and the cost of hearing aids, which he would not have needed so soon had it not have been for the additional noise induced damage.
