I am a partner in the medical negligence team based in our Birmingham office.

I specialise in serious injury cases on behalf of patients and focus particularly on problems caused by spinal and brain injuries. I have acted only on behalf of Claimants in medical negligence claims for over 20 years and have completed many successful claims involving serious and, often, life-changing injuries.

The patient charity Action against Medical Accidents choose a panel of medical negligence specialist solicitors which I have been on for the past 15 years. I am recognised by the UK legal directories, Legal 500 and Chambers.

I enjoy working closely with people to understand their lives and plans for the future. This is essential before then working out with advice from experts in medical and other fields what compensation they need to give the best chance to make the recover as much as possible and to get the most out of their lives in the future.

I assisted my former client with her claim following misdiagnosed cauda equina syndrome which she refers to in her video interview with the charity AvMA.
