Consultant Solicitor
I am a Consultant Solicitor that specialises exclusively in Personal Injury. I take on clients, exclusively, and proceed through a regulated law firm, meaning you get my individual time and dedication, but with the safety of knowing the case is run through a law firm that is appropriately insured.
I am very fortunate to be able to work through a law firm who share the same principles as I do in terms of acting in their client’s best interests.
I have over seven years of experience in Personal Injury and many of these years I have acted for clients across England and Wales in various, heavily contested, claims.

Some law firms will want their lawyers to progress cases as quickly as possible to increase turn over – usually at the detriment of the client. It could potentially mean that your claim could be compromised, meaning you don’t necessary get the best outcome.
However a Consultant Solicitor will be able to ensure all the appropriate evidence is collated before proceeding forward.
That doesn’t mean that you should avoid litigation. In fact experienced Personal Injury Lawyers will know how when to move forward by issuing legal proceedings –
Remember, the insurers on the otherwise make money by taking premiums from their policyholders and finding anyway possible to avoid paying out
Consultant Solicitors are highly experienced who will not be afraid to push forward with litigation whilst, at the same time, ensuring all bases are covered once legal proceedings have started
a Personal Injury Lawyer will need to ensure you keep up with all court deadlines and directions otherwise your claim could be struck out
