My background, for 29 years, has been pursuing compensation claims for accident victims and those who have suffered as a result of professional or medical negligence.
Often clients have had life changing injuries and I fully appreciate that the work which I do can make a huge difference to how they are able to take their lives forward. I try to never lose sight of the fact that a client’s claim may be the most important thing for them at that particular time and I strive to achieve the best possible outcome in every case.
I love travelling and visiting different countries all over the world. I am an avid supporter of the Scottish Football team, and try to go to all of their home and away matches.
I am accredited by The Law Society of Scotland as a specialist in both professional negligence law and personal injury law. I also have a significant case load of medical negligence work as well as dealing with high value road traffic and work accident claims in both the Court of Session and Sheriff Court.
I am regularly invited to deliver seminars to lawyers on aspects of personal injury practice and procedure as well as civil litigation costs and funding.
With a particular interest in quality assurance and peer reviewing, having acted as a Peer Reviewer for the Law Society of Scotland since 2003, I was invited to deliver a series of seminars to Chinese lawyers in Beijing in 2015 on the skills of peer reviewing and have a particular interest in the Chinese Legal Reform programme.
I am currently one of only 3 solicitors in Scotland to have been accredited as a Fellow by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
