Professional Negligence Lawyers Association

Working in a general litigation team over the past 14 years has enabled me to gain an enormously varied experience and understanding of the legal disputes people and companies can face. I thoroughly enjoy analysing a client’s situation and finding a legal or practical solution for them. I always strive to really get to know and understand all my clients and the wider issues that a dispute or a claim creates for each one of them. Knowing that my clients really feel that I am in their corner when the chips are down is what it's all about.
