I have exceptional knowledge of the CPR and I am meticulous in keeping up to date with developments in the law of personal injury and civil litigation.

I am committed to provide the highest level of service and my clients find me to be approachable and down to earth; with a considerable breadth and depth of knowledge, which I put to good use in the successful pursuit of the claims I handle.
