She became a partner at Pryers Solicitors in 2013.
Carmel qualified as a Solicitor in 1994.
Over the last five years she has not only secured several multi-million pound settlements for individuals who are catastrophically injured but also provided lots of practical support for Claimants and their families to ensure they are able to continue to have a good quality of life after injury.
The support Carmel provides extends past settlement, in some instances, as she acts as a court of protection deputy. This sees her helping clients with significant injuries to manage large sums of compensation.
Carmel lives in York and spends most of her free time with her three children, Alexander, Matthew and Madeleine.
During the Coronavirus pandemic, Carmel wrote some advice for people with brain injuries, about getting through the Coronavirus pandemic.
