I find it extremely rewarding to bring vital and life-changing support to families in need.
Get to know Julia
I joined Slater and Gordon Lawyers (then Leo Abse and Cohen) in 1998 as a trainee solicitor and qualified as a solicitor two years later in 2000.
I manage the catastrophic team in Cardiff and invest time, energy and thought in my team adopting a coaching and encouraging style of management, and am described by Counsel as a “first class clinical negligence lawyer”.
I have particular interest in obstetric cases and those involving paediatric brain damage and have over two decades of experience in complicated, high value clinical negligence cases.
I’m a seasoned litigator, used to carrying a heavy litigated caseload, in cases involving both children and adults without capacity, requiring Court approval. I'm a determined litigator and am not afraid to take on difficult cases and fight for the justice my clients deserve.
I would say the best part of my work is working closely with my clients. I believe it’s essential to spend significant time with the families I work with to develop rapport and a close working relationship. I regularly visit clients at home and spend time with them to develop relationships of trusts and confidence, allowing my clients to feel they can talk openly and honestly about all the day to day challenges and difficulties that they now encounter, and fears that they have for the future. I believe this is essential in preparing a case fully, and maximising results for my clients.
I’ve previously been recognised in the independent legal guide, the Legal 500 as a ‘Recommended Lawyer’ and recognised me for my “hardworking and sensible approach”.
The extra mile
During my time with Slater and Gordon I’ve worked with many charities who support babies and children with cerebral palsy or brain injury. I’m often described as a “super supporter” and charities say they “are delighted” to work with me. I’m also a treasurer and member of Headway Bridgend.
I cannot thank Slater and Gordon and their excellent solicitor, Julia Reynolds too much for the excellent legal expertise afforded me. Client testimonial (for Julia Reynolds)
Anyone who has suffered from clinical negligence, I would suggest, should make Slater Gordon their first port of call. I cannot thank or praise them too highly for all they have achieved for me. I owe a great debt of gratitude to Julia Reynolds and the team that support her. 5* Google Review (for Julia Reynolds)
Julia Reynolds and her team have worked very hard and with great professionalism on my case. They treat me with the greatest respect and go to great lengths to guide me through this litigation process. 5* Google Review (for Julia Reynolds)
