I am the head of the Gotelee Solicitors Medical Negligence team.
I specialise in cases arising from medical negligence including:
I graduated with a law degree from University College London and joined Gotelee in 1991 as a trainee solicitor, qualifying into the dispute resolution department. I have been acting for clients in Clinical Negligence cases since 1996 and have obtained individual compensation in excess of £500,000 on several occasions for my Clients.
I am an APIL Accredited Clinical Negligence Specialist; an APIL accredited Senior Litigator and a member of the Law Society Personal Injury Panel.
The Legal 500 which is an impartial view on legal service providers says (2015): ‘Gotelee Solicitors fights hard and consistently achieves excellent results. Tim Humpage, who obtained £350,000 for misdiagnosis of a brain injured client, gets to the heart of the matter’.
I am identified as a leading individual in my field of work by The Legal 500 2014 and am quoted to be ‘intelligent’ and ‘sympathetic’.
I act for claimants in clinical negligence claims against Hospital Trusts, GP Surgeries, GP’s, Dentists and Opticians. I also represent Clients at Coroners Inquests and medical disciplinary hearings.
When I am not at Gotelee, I spend my time with my young family, walking my Labrador, and, occasionally indulging my other passion in life – birdwatching. I will also admit to a growing interest in gardening, badly!
I am a past President and current committee member of the Ipswich Medico-Legal Society.

"I have used Tracey Hammond at Gotelee on a number of occasions and in my opinion, she is simply the most efficient conveyancing solicitor I have ever worked with. From the outset, she took the time to understand my specific business requirements and to date, she has exceeded all of my expectations."
