About Stephanie

Stephanie graduated from University of the West of England (UWE) with a degree in law, before completing her legal practice course at the same university. Stephanie joined our Medical Negligence team in autumn 2017, having previously gained experience in a similar role at a well-known Bristol firm.

Stephanie has experience of all areas of medical negligence, and a particular specialism in orthopaedic and dental claims. She advises clients on a variety of medical claims against NHS Trusts, individual GPs, private hospitals, opticians and other medical professionals.

The areas in which Stephanie specialises include (but are not limited to):

  • delays in the diagnosis of medical/dental conditions
  • failure to reasonably treat a condition or carry out surgery
  • mismanagement of prescription or incorrect prescription of medication
  • birth injuries
  • dental injuries
  • orthopaedic injuries.


Chartered Institute of Legal Executives, graduate member.


Outside work Stephanie enjoys sketching and painting.

I enjoy working in medical negligence because it involves analysis of the medical professional/patient relationship. Sometimes injuries occur, but this does not necessarily mean that there has been negligence. I find it very rewarding to help clients work out what has happened in their case and explore whether this occurred due to a recognised complication of their medical treatment or whether something untoward has taken place. In the event of the latter, I find it worthwhile providing assistance to those who wish to seek a remedy.
