I am a qualified solicitor with over 10 years experience in the law. I initially qualified as a barrister, but then cross qualified to become a solicitor.
I have done civil litigation for all my career with a focus on RTA claims and personal injury claims. I obtained a lot of experience in credit hire litigation and over the last 5 years have developed a specialism in employment liability/public liability claims and serious injury.
In the last few years I have also specialised in hire purchase claims. I am the deputy money laundering reporting officer for the firm and provide anti-money laundering training for all employees.
