Tell us about yourself
Whilst studying I worked as a legal advisor for a large law firm. I provided advice on a variety of matters including consumer law, employment law, family law and personal injury law. I had a particular interest in personal injury litigation and I joined John Hodge Solicitors in 2014 as a personal injury legal assistant. I am now a solicitor in our personal injury department. I am a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, (APIL).
What is your specialist area of law?
I specialise in personal injury claims. I have conducted a wide range of personal injury cases including claims for clients that have been injured in road traffic accidents as drivers, injured passengers, those who are injured pedestrians and for motor bike accidents. I have a special interest in claims where people are injured in scooter accidents. I have represented injured children, where a child has been injured in a road accident, play park, or suffered injury at soft play or at school or nursery.
I also specialise in accident claims where injuries are suffered at work on farms, ports, from accident in factories, building sites or construction sites, including where employees have been injured due to a fall from height, defective equipment, a lack of PPE and where work colleagues have made mistakes.
What do you offer clients of John Hodge Solicitors?
I am happy to meet with clients in any of our offices that is convenient to them. I am flexible with regards to contact with clients during their claim and can call, email, write or meet in person. I advise our clients in a concise way without the need for too much legal jargon.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
I enjoy being able to help those that have been placed in a situation which is no fault of their own, to assist them through the claims process and reach a fair and justified outcome.
What do you think makes a good lawyer?
To be able to listen to what the client’s needs are but to also ensure that the clients have a clear understand of the process and what to expect throughout their claim and when.
A message for clients:
Some firms deal with vast caseloads, with no face to face meetings and often leaving you unsure as to whether the person dealing with your claim is a qualified lawyer. We treat you as an individual and ensure that your claim is handled appropriately, achieving the very best outcome for you.
