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 Senior Litigator and a member of the Law Society Personal Injury Panel.
In the latest edition of the Legal 500 which is recognised globally as the definitive guide for those seeking expert legal advice, I was ranked as a Leading Individual.
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!
