I have been working for over 40 years in the field of personal injury claims and there are very few types of injury or incident that I haven’t dealt with in that time.

Bringing my depth of knowledge and experience to someone newly injured means that their needs can be dealt with swiftly and they will start the case knowing what to expect of the process.

Being recognised in the top tier of personal injury lawyers in Bristol and the South West by Chambers is something of which I am particularly proud.

I am Chair of Friends of Bristol Eye Hospital, a member of the Board of Headway Bristol and a member and former President of the Bristol Medico-Legal Society.
