In the two decades I've been specialising in medical negligence, I’ve had many career highlights. I see it as a privilege to help to secure justice and much needed compensation to aid rehabilitation, housing, care and support. I'm very proud to have helped so many deserving people to move forward with their lives after suffering from catastrophic injury.
Most recent highlights include a cerebral palsy case settlement of £14.4 million and a Court of Appeal case where treatment of meningitis was delayed in a 13-month old baby in which compensation was secured for the child in the sum of £4 million.

The delay in treatment resulted in irreversible damage to her spine and optic nerves, which has left Charlotte having difficulty walking, due to hypersensitivity, serve numbness and pain in their back and impaired vision. Even though Charlotte is now receiving the treatment needed to manage their vitamin B12 deficiency, the damage caused to Charlotte will stay with her. The compensation that was secured for Charlotte's claim has helped Charlotte get her independence back.
