Motivation

What aspects of your job do you enjoy the most?
I enjoy bringing cases to a successful conclusion and obtaining compensation for my clients. The end result is often a positive validation of the negative experience the client has endured.
Why did you choose a career in the legal sector?
Because I wanted a job where I could make a real difference to people lives. I chose this area of law because not only would I be helping individual clients with their experiences but helping the NHS to learn how they can avoid making these mistakes in the future.
