I am the head of the civil litigation and personal injury department. I have experience in most areas of personal injury litigation including accidents at work, trip and slip cases, defective product claims, road traffic accidents, fatal accident claims and claims for criminal injury compensation. I have successfully handled hundreds of claims, recovering millions of pounds in compensation for my clients.
My experience extends to other areas of litigation including probate disputes, boundary and land disputes, debt recovery and advice, landlord and tenant matters and contractual disputes.
Having completed my degree and Legal Practice Course in Nottingham, I returned home to Newport where I completed my training, qualifying in 1997. I joined this firm a year later and have been a partner since 2002..
Having been based in Newport and Torfaen throughout my career, I believe that local knowledge and a personal, professional service is important to my clients. Each claim is different and advice should be tailored to each individual problem, rather than the “one size fits all” approach that many larger firms have moved towards.
I enjoy helping trainees and young solicitors develop their skills and knowledge and teach civil advocacy on the Professional Skills Course. I am the secretary of the Monmouthshire Law Society and sit on the Board of the Congress Theatre and am on the committee for the youth theatre.
