Since qualifying as a Solicitor in 1991, I have specialised in personal injury and clinical negligence cases (though early in my career I did have some Defendant experience) and bring experience, knowledge and enthusiasm to my work. Having first joined Trethowans in 1997 and rejoined (after a brief spell away) in 2003, I became a Partner in 2007.

I specialise in a wide variety of complex employers’ liability cases and clinical negligence claims, but particularly catastrophic injury cases including brain injury, spinal injury, amputee cases and Claimants suffering multiple fractures. I have a reputation as somebody who will go the extra mile and fight and hard fight on behalf of my clients.

The fact that a large proportion of my cases are referred to me by solicitors from other firms is testament to my knowledge and expertise. I am committed to ensuring maximum compensation and the best rehabilitation possible for my clients, to ensure a good quality of life.

I am a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel Accreditation Scheme (since 1995), as well as a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (apil) since 1993, and an apil accredited Senior Litigator.

I have been appointed by the Court of Protection to act as a Professional Deputy to manage the property and financial affairs of vulnerable adults.
