Expertise and key strengths
I am able to explain the law and procedures involved in bringing a claim against the police to clients in a way that is easy to understand. The experience of having dealt with a large number of such claims allows me to identify the relevant issues very quickly. This means I can advise my clients on the options available to them and agree on a course of action at a very early stage. I feel it is important to remember that clients who have been through bad experiences with the police have often been through traumatic events, and are then faced with negotiating a complex legal system in order to bring a claim for compensation. My job is to try and simplify the process, advise them on the strengths and weaknesses of their case, and to bring their claims to a successful conclusion in the shortest time possible.
I began working for a local law firm specialising in personal injury claims in 2008, dealing with road traffic accident, employers liability, and public liability claims. I have been with Hudgell Solicitors since 2014, firstly working in personal injury before moving to the Police Claims/Civil Liberties department.
I have almost 10 years of litigation experience in these roles.
Proudest professional achievement
I am proud of all of the work we do in the Police Claims/Civil Liberties department. However, any case where there is a denial of liability and you are forced to fight for a result is especially pleasing to win. Many of the claims we deal with are, at least initially, defended by the other side. Our knowledge and experience as a department help us to succeed in many cases where I believe many other firms would struggle.
Very efficient, flawless service from start to finish. Would highly recommend.
The service I have received has been simply perfect. Since the beginning I have been assigned to a lawyer who has assisted me throughout. He has always been friendly, professional and available. I recommend Hudgell Solicitors 100%!
Thank you very much for your help with sorting my case against London Police. Very fast and professional service .
