Duncan Lewis Solicitors is pleased to announce the recent appointment of both Julie Leslie and Commercial Litigation Specialist Sobashni De Silva as a Directors of Litigation.
Julie Leslie has over 10 years’ post-qualification experience across all types of claimant personal injury work, including accidents at work, trips & slips, occupier's liability, children's injuries and road traffic accidents.
