I am a Partner and Head of the Dispute Resolution Department. A Personal Injury Solicitor, I specialise in Brain Injuries, Accident Claims and Medical Negligence.
I have considerable experience in dealing with all manner of cases from minor low-value road traffic cases to catastrophic cases involving acquired brain injury, in which I have a special interest. I am experienced in dealing with Criminal Injury Compensation Authority claims. I acted in a high profile case involving a local concrete business, and I am currently acting in other high profile local fatal cases.
I am proud to have helped hundreds of clients get the compensation they are entitled to ranging from several thousand to over a million pounds as well as access to specialist rehabilitation services. Our local clients benefit from the very best standards of face to face client care. Free initial meetings are available as are home visits and out of hours appointments.
Having studied at Liverpool John Moore University and qualifying in practice in Lancashire, I have been involved in personal injury law for almost 20 years. Having worked as a Partner for a London firm, I moved to Norfolk and joined Hatch Brenner, Norwich in 2005.
I sit on the board of trustees for Headway Norfolk & Waveney and Hatch Brenner is delighted to be included on the Headway Solicitor’s Directory once again for 2021. I hold accreditation from the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) as a Senior Litigator and Brain Injury Specialist. APIL is dedicated to promoting the interests of accident victims. I am included in the Spinal Injuries Association list of accredited Personal Injury Solicitors for 2021/22. I am also a member of the Norfolk & Norwich Medico-Legal Society, Eastern Region Brain Injury Forum and the Norfolk Area Brain Injury Forum.
