My Professional Background
I joined Attwaters Jameson Hill in June 2015; it’s a firm that prides itself in not only featuring in the Legal 500, but having a friendly attitude amongst colleagues and clients alike, which is so important.
I am a Solicitor in the Medical Negligence department. My cases vary from fatal medical error, delay in cancer diagnosis, elderly care issues, GP negligence and many more. Medical negligence is a field where no two cases are the same and while the negligence of a case may be the same, it’s the people that set these cases apart. My priority is doing the best I can to achieve compensation for clients that are, at times, extremely vulnerable and continue to require medical treatment.
Medical negligence is a unique area where you are liaising with medical experts, barristers and the client all at the same time! It’s a hectic but very rewarding field to work in. I take pride in being involved in complex cases and most importantly, trying to seek answers on behalf of the families and individuals that have been affected by the negligence.
I studied English Literature at Kingston University, attaining a 2:1, before completing the Graduate Diploma in Law and the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law, London. I qualified as a Solicitor in 2013 and since then, I have mainly worked for Legal 500 firms in London.

I was born in 1984 and have recently had a baby boy, who gets more and more cheeky every day! My favourite meal is my Mum’s roast dinner. I love to travel and experience different cultures and also have an interest in photography; I have a fear of spiders. My dream job would be an astronaut, as it would give me the opportunity to see the stars close up. If I were stranded on a desert island, I would take Bear Grylls with me as I’d ideally want to stay alive!
