I am Director, Solicitor and Head of the Brain Injury & Serious Injury team at Switalskis.

I have acted for clients in compensation claims for very serious injury for more than 25 years. I have particular expertise in brain injury claims resulting from all kinds of accidents including road traffic accidents, pedestrian, cycling and motorbike accidents, accidents caused by ice, accidents at work and claims resulting from criminal assault. I also act for clients in a minimally conscious stat (MCS).

I am passionate about obtaining interim payments for my clients where possible in order to secure early rehabilitation; it is immensely satisfying to see the difference the legal process can make to establish the path to a better life for my clients and their families.

For much of my career I have been closely involved with Headway, the brain injury association and charity and I am currently Chair of Headway Yorkshire East Coast. I am also former chair of the Yorkshire Acquired Brain Injury Forum (YABIF), and remain a committee member.

I have been a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers for many years, and am a member of the UK Acquired Brain Injury Forum (UKABIF).
