The legal profession is my second career; the first was in nursing where I specialised as an intensive care and coronary care nurse/sister.  This dual qualification affords me a particular advantage when risk assessing and handling cases, as my medical knowledge combines well with my legal expertise to enable me to provide specialist advice on a wide range of clinical negligence cases.

Career Highlights

  • Successfully settled a case for a young mother with two young children, following the death of her husband due to substandard care by 3 Consultants. This was despite an inquest finding no fault with any of the treatment. Damages were in excess of £1 million.
  • Member of The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers
  • Member of the Institute of Leadership & Management
  • I devote some of my spare time to helping Diabetes UK as I have a personal interest in this area of medicine
