I am an experienced Medical Negligence and Personal Injury Solicitor with over 15 years specialist experience. I was appointed to the Hatch Brenner Partnership in October 2020, having previously been a Director at Morgan Jones Pett in Norwich.
I am on the AvMA and Law Society Panel of Clinical Negligence Specialists and am a Senior Litigator member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
I deal with all types of claim whether valued at £2,000.00 or £2,000,000.00 plus. I have a particular interest in gynaecological and obstetric claims, orthopaedic cases and those where errors have occurred in accident and emergency.
