Medical Negligence 



About Helen

As head of the medical negligence department, I have a particular interest in complex and high-profile clinical negligence cases, several of which have been widely reported in the local and national media. This includes a ground-breaking case involving a young women who underwent an emergency hysterectomy at the age of 19 – one of the first where a claim was made to seek compensation for the costs of surrogacy. I have been involved in settlement of a number of brain injury cases with damages to in excess of £5 million. I am well known as an expert in cases involving women’s health and have been involved in high profile ‘right to life’ cases.


I studied at Leeds University and graduated with a BA Hons degree in European Politics. Following graduation I chose to convert my degree to Law and I studied the GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law) and then the LPC (Legal Practice Course) at the College of Law in Chester.

Greatest Personal Achievement

Overseeing EAD’s success and expansion of the Clinical Negligence department, and obtaining the right outcomes for my clients.

After Work

When not in the office and looking after my daughter (which is most of the time), the thing I love to do most is read, especially classic literature. I also am an avid movie fan.
