I studied law at the University of Warwick before completing my Legal Practice Course at Nottingham Law School. I undertook my training contract at a London law firm before moving to a law firm in Sheffield. I then worked for a national trade union law firm for 16 years before joining Minster Law in October 2022. I have only ever acted on behalf of claimants in personal injury litigation and specialise in fatal accident and serious orthopaedic injury claims.
What are you most passionate about in your job?
I act on behalf of injured people, and their families, who are at their most vulnerable when they come to me for help. I strive to support them with early rehabilitation and guiding them through the litigation process step by step, so they feel in control and fully engaged with their claim. I am conscious of the life-changing injuries my clients suffer and the long-term impact this can have on them. While it is not always possible for my clients to fully return to their pre-accident life, it is extremely rewarding to know that the rehabilitation and compensation we secure for them helps them as much as possible. In relation to my work on behalf of bereaved families, it is obviously a traumatic time when they have lost a loved one. It is important to me that they feel fully supported throughout what can be an intimidating and complex claims process. Whilst nothing can bring the person back, it is a privilege to be able to work on their behalf to help secure a family’s financial future.
What are your personal interests outside of work?
I love spending time with my partner and our two children. I am a keen runner, having completed a number of half and full marathons. I have also recently taken up open water swimming. I am a season ticket holder at Rotherham United.
