Background

I am a specialist clinical negligence solicitor. I act on a variety of matters including surgical negligence, orthopaedic injuries, delayed diagnosis, consent cases, cosmetic surgery cases, birth injuries, ophthalmic and dental negligence, cases involving private medical treatment, and GP negligence.

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.
