Solicitor - Catastrophic Injury and Clinical Negligence

What's your role?

I represent clients who have sustained catastrophic injuries as a result of an accident or substandard medical treatment. I secure compensation for them in order to improve their quality of life following such life changing events.

Your experience?

I qualified as a solicitor in 2011 and joined Coffin Mew in August 2016. I have gained a broad experience of complex personal injury and clinical negligence claims. I have successfully negotiated and settled difficult cases including claims that were brought a number of years after the expiry of the limitation period.
