Partner in the medical negligence team.
Having first joined Boyes Turner in 1998 I became a Partner at Boyes Turner specialising in all aspects of medical negligence and in particular cerebral palsy medical negligence cases in 2003. I left the partnership in 2008 and rejoined the partnership in 2016.
I act for claimants in complex medical negligence cases involving life changing injuries such as brain damage, spinal damage and amputation as well as life shortening injuries such as delays in the diagnosis and treatment of cancers. The largest proportion of my work is in my particular area of expertise, cerebral palsy cases arising from failures in the management of pregnancy, labour, delivery and/or the neonatal period. As well as acting as litigator I also act as a professional trustee for brain injured clients.
I am recognised as both an Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA) and Law Society specialist medical negligence and clinical negligence panel solicitor (Avma since 2001 and Law Society since 2002). I am also a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
I have served as both secretary and coordinator of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) regional group, the Central England West, (1999 - 2004) and am actively involved in training junior clinical negligence solicitors lecturing for AvMA.
I am honorary legal advisor to the Chiltern Centre, providing respite care for disable children and young adults from Oxfordshire and Berkshire.
After obtaining a 2.1 honours degree in biology from University College London in 1987 I worked as a negotiator for Anglia Television, gaining commercial experience before completing the Law Society conversion course in 1992 and my training contract in 1996. I have specialised in claimant clinical negligence work since qualification.
I am married with a daughter and enjoy horse riding, mountain biking, kayaking, and taking part in triathlons.
