I specialised in these areas of work early in my legal career, having qualified as a Solicitor in 1984. I was one of the first Solicitors to be accepted onto the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel in the early 1990s and have remained on the Panel ever since.
I have also been heavily involved with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers – APIL. APIL are dedicated to raising standards for Claimant lawyers (with a specialist legal education programme), and they promote the rights of injured people. I was APIL’s South East Regional Co-Ordinator for nearly a decade. I currently serve on the Executive Committee and will become Vice-President of APIL in May 2019.
I have a breadth of experience in my areas of legal work. I have represented clients who have had a wide range of accidents. I have a particular interest and experience in head injury cases, accidents abroad and all types of accidents in the workplace.
I have been a Court of Protection Deputy for a number of acquired brain injury clients since 2002. Such clients can no longer manage their financial affairs and I help them with all aspects of this including overseeing their investments and making large purchases such as a home.
In both areas of my work, I give straightforward advice coupled with an empathetic approach
Outside the law my main interests are amateur theatre directing, off-road cycling, travelling and the cinema. I am also a big football fan and am season ticket holder at the Albion.
