I joined MW in March 2018 as a solicitor in the personal injury department.  I specialise in injury claims and have expertise in acting for claimants in a wide spectrum of large complex claims involving serious injuries, diseases and fatalities.I am enthusiastic and committed to achieving the best possible outcome.

I have acted on behalf of defendants and insurers giving me the knowledge and experience to know how they are likely to respond to claims.  Many of my cases have gone to trial, and some to the Court of Appeal including Hatton v Sutherland, a leading occupational stress claim.
