After gaining my Law degree at Cardiff University and Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice at the College of Law, I qualified as a Solicitor in 2001. I started out as a Defendant personal injury Solicitor for Local Authorities via their insurers, dealing with employer and public liability claims. This gave me much court advocacy experience and I went on to obtain the separate qualification of ‘Solicitor-Advocate’ in 2008 after taking on additional studies and exams. I also have a master’s degree in Business from The Open University and am a PRINCE2 Project Management Practitioner.

I have specialised in medical negligence litigation since qualifying as a Solicitor-Advocate. For approximately half of my career I represented the NHS Litigation Authority and one of the GP Unions before switching allegiances 5 years ago and now I work with injured individuals and bereaved families to achieve compensation for adverse outcomes, which I find much more rewarding.

I believe my background gives me the breadth of experience to tackle my clients’ concerns as proactively and efficiently as possible because I understand how the claim is viewed from both sides. No 2 days in medical negligence are ever the same as I can deal with claims involving delayed diagnosis of diseases, errors in surgery or even birth injury. Whilst this is challenging and requires me to attend many hours of medical lectures each year to keep abreast of changes in treatments, it satisfies my lifelong love of learning and is very interesting.

In my spare time, I am an active member of my local Rotary Club and I enjoy running, swimming and cycling, as well as travelling to far flung destinations. My favourite trip was a combination of these when I cycled around Cuba for 2 weeks in 2015.
