I have been a QC for 24 years
I have always practised as a personal injury lawyer, and since taking silk I have worked exclusively for claimants who have suffered catastrophic brain and spine injury. I never work for defendants.
I have represented well over 1,000 catastrophic brain or spine injury claimants (more than any other UK lawyer?)
I have won hundreds of millions of pounds in client compensation
I regularly finalise over £50 million of claims a year
I am the author of “Brain and Spine Injuries – the Fight for Justice” – 2nd edition out now as an e-book
I was the consultant editor of Kemp & Kemp on The Quantum of Damages from 1995 to 2004
I am the joint editor of “Medical Aspects of Personal Injury Litigation”, with Professor Barnes and Professor Ward
I am an accredited mediator, and I support mediation and ADR when appropriate
I travel the country seeing injured people and their families, at their convenience
I believe passionately in the rights of those who have suffered catastrophic injury, and their families
