I am a serious injury lawyer specialising in clinical negligence claims, and claims for individuals affected by childhood abuse, whether that be sexual, emotional or physical or neglect

I am a member of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers and have been acting for survivors for several years, representing both adults and children by their litigation friends. I have a particular interest in bringing claims against local authorities for failing to remove a child from an abusive family home or foster placement resulting in a psychiatric injury.
