I joined Hodge Jones & Allen in 2009 and became a Partner in 2014. I specialise in all areas of Claimant personal injury work, including employers liability, occupiers liability, road traffic accidents including pedestrians and cyclists and highways claims. I also have extensive experience in dealing with accidents that have occurred on aeroplanes, when on a package holiday and accidents that occur in prison. I have a particular interest in dealing with repetitive strain injury claims and cases involving multiple defendants.
I am a recommended lawyer by the Legal 500 and have been described as “an excellent litigator.”

I enjoy running, socialising with friends, all things chocolate and I am an avid reader.
Soft tissue injuries is a generic term used to describe injuries which affect ligaments, muscles, tendons, and nerves. The most common soft tissue injuries consist of strains, sprains, contusions, bursitis, tendinopathies and stress injuries.
You may be interested to know that it is not compulsory to wear a cycle helmet when cycling on Britain’s roads. I was surprised by this as the UK roads are very dangerous and accidents and injuries to cyclists are sadly not an uncommon occurrence.Head injuries are often the most common cycling accident claim - particularly when the rider was not wearing a helmet.
