I qualified as a solicitor in 2001 and became a partner at Pryers in 2013.
I’m married with two sons and live on the outskirts of Leeds. I’m a keen cyclist and spend much of my free time riding in the Yorkshire Dales and, when time allows, the mountains of Europe.
Over the years I have dealt with almost every type of clinical negligence case and I particularly enjoy those involving very complex medicine. A large part of my current work concerns serious spinal injuries and brain injuries, particularly those sustained around the time of birth. I have a lot of experience of orthopaedic cases, especially those concerning joint replacement and I really enjoy dealing with claims with a foreign or international element. I head our Product Liability team, acting for people who have suffered injuries caused by all sorts of defective medical devices.
I’m a member of the Law Society Clinical Negligence Accreditation Scheme and the Spinal Injuries Association solicitors’ panel.
