Get to know John

I qualified as a solicitor in 1997 and am a senior personal injury lawyer at our Cardiff office.

I have worked tirelessly for claimants in all areas of industrial disease.

I have a specific interest and expertise in representing those who’ve suffered from asbestos related illnesses, mesothelioma, asbestos related lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural thickening.

I have developed a practise in work related cancer claims and respiratory claims arising from chemical and mineral exposures.

I am honoured to work closely with charities who offer support and advice to victims of asbestos disease and their families. I am also gratified to represent a number trade unions and their members.

I am proud to say that I am a trade union member and shop steward.

Career highlights include successfully running group and class actions to the Court of Appeal and to the Supreme Court of England and Wales.

I’ve also brought specific and novel points of law to the High Court and Supreme Court Judiciary for consideration.

My honest and candid view is that the highlight of my working career is being able to represent and help individuals and their families through difficult and straitened times and to achieve the very best outcome while working as part of some magnificent teams.


For the past several years I've been ranked in independent legal guide, the Legal 500. I’m currently ranked as a ‘Leading Individual’ in the 2023 guide.
