Police Claims Handler

Areas of specialism

My areas of specialism relate largely to civil liberties actions against the police and include dealing with the following specific issues;

  • Breaches of the bail act
  • Procedural breaches of Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (PACE) and the accompanying PACE codes of practice
  • False imprisonment
  • Data protection breaches
  • Malicious prosecution
  • Human rights breaches
  • Assault
  • Wrongful arrest and unlawful detention
  • Misfeasance in Public office
  • Unlawfully obtained warrants

The cases I handle require that I attend inquests and misconduct hearings to support clients. In addition I have a broad understanding of Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury areas having gained valuable experience in dealing with new claim enquiries.

Expertise and key strengths

I am able to simplify what initially appears to be a complex system of rules and procedures for the progression of a claim against the police. This is welcomed by clients who are often worrying about the process ahead.  I have an ability to build up a rapport with the client at an early stage and to manage expectations of what lay ahead and potential outcomes.  I have an understanding and unbiased approach to every client and every claim no matter what circumstances they have been derived from and apply proven and methodical processes, often working under pressure despite the inevitable time constraints in civil litigation

My Career

I was aware at a young age that I wanted to pursue a career in law and keen to enter this challenging sector.  I did A Level Law followed by an LLB (2:1) and am now progressing with LPC (Distinction average so far).

After graduating from Hull University in May 2013 immediately sought employment at a local firm specialising in Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence were I started off within the fast track team gaining valuable experience handling my own case load.

I began working for Hudgell Solicitors in October 2014 and in May 2016 I was delighted to be given the opportunity to work within the experienced police claims department where I was given the immediate responsibility of handling my own police case. Actions against the police was always an area of law of which I had desire to work in born out of a keen interest in the criminal justice system.

Proudest professional achievement

Within months of becoming a police claims lawyer I managed to secure a settlement for a client who used to be a serving police officer. This gentleman had lived his life by the book and prided himself on his clean record. This was tarnished when a false and malicious allegation was made against him. In an attempt to resolve the issue he attended the police station on his own accord and was subsequently arrested. I managed to successfully argue that despite the allegations that were levied against him the police had not satisfied that the arrest was necessary and that the same outcome could have been achieved by way of a voluntary interview.
