I commenced working with EAD in 2001 as a trainee solicitor, before going on to qualify in 2003 within the personal injury department. I represented trade union members who had suffered injuries as a consequence of accidents at work, or had developed an industrial disease, such as vibration white finger, asbestosis and noise induced hearing loss.
I transferred to the medical negligence department in 2011, before becoming a partner within the firm in 2012.
I currently deal with a wide variety of clinical negligence matters including, mis-diagnosis of cancer, spinal injuries and birth defects, including brain injuries. I also have a keen interest and deal with a large number of matters relating to the negligent performance of plastic surgery.
I studied on a part time basis, whilst also in full time employment, obtaining a law degree and LPC at Liverpool John Moores University.
Greatest Professional Achievement
I recently concluded a compensation claim on behalf of a client who had suffered a brain injury at a very young age as a result of an assault. The case eventually settled after many years achieving an award in excess of £3,000,000. It was a very humbling day in court.
Greatest Personal Achievement
This is two-fold. Firstly qualifying as a solicitor after studying on a part time basis for 7 years, whilst working full time as an office manager. Secondly, obtaining partnership within 12 months of moving to the clinical negligence department and returning to work after a period of maternity leave.
