I am an experienced asbestos claims lawyer and I am dedicated to obtaining the right outcome for my clients as quickly as possible with minimal disruption. I am approachable and down to earth, and this puts my clients at ease.
Get to know Michael
I qualified as a solicitor in 2012 and joined Slater and Gordon’s industrial disease team in 2018. I specialise in asbestos related diseases and represent asbestos sufferers throughout the UK and abroad, who’ve been diagnosed with asbestosis, lung cancer, mesothelioma and pleural thickening conditions.
I also represent the families of asbestos victims who have sadly passed away as a consequence of asbestos related disease.
I have experience of bringing successful claims on behalf of asbestos victims who lived close to asbestos manufacturing factories and also for partners of people who worked with asbestos who have contracted asbestos related diseases through washing their partners' asbestos contaminated overalls.
I also have vast experience of acting on behalf of clients suffering from hard-arm vibration syndrome, occupational stress and repetitive strain injuries.
One of my career highlights involves recently successfully concluding a claim for a mesothelioma sufferer who was exposed to asbestos when employed as a plater, cutting into asbestos sheeting as part of his work. The settlement approved by the Court included provision for future costs of expensive private medical treatment namely, immunotherapy.
