Lucy is Secretary for the Oxford Medico-Legal Society which promotes discussion between medics and lawyers in the Oxfordshire area.

From the moment I joined the Clinical Negligence team I knew this was ‘it’. Throughout my training contract I have been fortunate to get exposed to a wide variety of teams and disciplines. Like many other trainees, I found this challenging at times; however as soon as I joined the Clinical Negligence team I developed a real interest. With the rate technology and medicine advancing, working in the field of clinical negligence presents a real challenge which means no two days are ever the same.

I have always enjoyed getting to know clients and helping them through difficult times in their lives, be it through a divorce or after a sustaining an injury. I find it hugely rewarding to be involved in having such a profound impact on people’s lives and being able to guide them through to a positive outcome.
