Insurance: Personal Injury: claimant / London
I am an experienced Solicitor in the Personal Injury, Clinical Negligence and Litigation Department at Duncan Lewis. I joined the firm in March 2018 and I am based in the Harrow office.

I regularly handle different types of serious personal injury and clinical negligence claims, these include; birth injuries, brain injuries, surgical injuries, injuries resulting from delay and injuries resulting from misdiagnosis. I provide legal representation to clients who have suffered injustice at the hands of the NHS. I deal with high value Personal Injury claims including, industrial disease and serious life threatening injuries from an accident at work or on public property.

I have been instructed to act on behalf of Core Participants on the Grenfell Inquiry by assisting them to prepare their evidence to present to the Inquiry, reviewing expert reports and attending the Inquiry on their behalf. Alongside the Inquiry work, I am also dealing with their Personal Injury claims, to assist them on their path to rehabilitation and any other issues arising from this traumatic experience they have suffered. I am instructed by individuals and companies on litigation matters, with a particular focus on professional negligence claims, debt recovery and contractual disputes.

My clients frequently describe me as patient and approachable and I am immensely passionate about my work, improving the quality of life for my clients and getting the best results for them is what motivates me.
