Expertise and key strengths

I work in the medical negligence team at the Leeds office handling a  mixed caseload of medical and dental negligence claims including fatal claims and complex, high value injuries.  I deal with both litigated and non-litigated cases on a daily basis.

I try to provide straight-forward advice from an early stage so that my clients understand the claims process and know what to expect as the case progresses.  This helps to ensure that individual concerns can be addressed from the outset and my clients feel as at ease as possible in investigating their claims.

My career

I graduated from the University of York with a degree in French and Linguistics in 2003.  I then completed the Graduate Diploma in Law and later the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in York whilst working as a Paralegal.  I qualified as a Solicitor in 2010 and worked in Industrial Disease, Personal Injury, specialising in high value and complex claims and Employment Law before moving into Clinical Negligence in 2014. I joined Hudgell Solicitors in March 2015.

Proudest professional achievement

I recently negotiated  successful settlement of a  claim on behalf of a gentleman who had suffered a serious spinal injury as a result of hospital delays.  The case was important to me as it included provision for my client to move to more suitable accommodation for himself and his partner.   Over the course of the claim I had come to know my client and his family and understood something of the struggle they faced on a daily basis because of his injuries.  Achieving a  six-figure settlement for him meant that he had the funds to purchase a bungalow which will make a real difference to his quality of life and it is pleasing to be able to make a difference in this way.

I am however equally proud to have been able to give two families peace of mind by investigating the circumstances around their loved-ones’ deaths.   Whilst the investigations did not lead to successful claims the families felt reassured that the standard of medical care their relatives had received was of a reasonable standard and nothing could have been done to save their lives.
