"I joined Higgs in December 2022 as a Partner in the serious personal injury team and have over 20 years’ experience in dealing with serious injury and major trauma cases. ”

Prior to this, I was at Simpson Millar/Colemans-ctts for over 23 years where I successfully headed up the RTA department from 2008.

I am a solicitor with over 20 years’ experience of dealing with serious injuries which have resulted in life changing injuries. As I deal with clients who have suffered traumatic experience and life changing injuries, I develop a strong bond with them. I strongly believe in early rehabilitation and treatment to get my clients on the road to recovery.

My expertise is in high value, catastrophic, life changing injuries and in particular complex orthopaedic injuries, spinal injury, fatalities, amputations and brain injury and have frequently secured multi-million pound settlements.

I am a past chair and I am currently vice chair and a Director of the Motor Accident Solicitors Society (MASS). I am concerned with protecting and maintaining the interests of people injured in road collisions and I fight to ensure access to justice.

I am regularly asked to consult with the Ministry of Justice and other stakeholders on procedural and legislative changes which impact on those injured in road traffic collisions.

Through my work with MASS, I have attended regular meetings with the Justice Secretary, MPs and civil servants. In addition, I have written a number of publications and lectured at a number of conferences, appeared on the radio and I have also been a judge at a number of personal injury awards ceremonies.

  • I have achieved numerous substantial settlements and a number of multi-million pound settlements prior to joining Higgs.
  • Recent settlements whilst at Higgs, include a significant six-figure settlement for a gentleman who suffered serious fractures to an arm, which included a substantial degloving injury. Through collaboration, I was able to obtain support including treatment to assist in his recovery and also secure aids and equipment. I was then able to negotiate a swift settlement.
