“Understanding the world of brain and spinal injuries has been a personal passion since I qualified in 1991. By nature, these injuries are always severe so I work very closely with both the injured individuals, as well as their families as everyone’s affected. Winning these complex claims is always a delicate balance between ‘fighting the client’s corner’ and recognising that dealing with the individual and their families requires enormous sensitivity. We become a close knit team and it’s inspired me to become a legal specialist in this area so that my clients will have the very best quality of life”
