I joined Moore Blatch in 2019 as a paralegal working in the Major Trauma team, working closely with Trevor Sterling, Partner for Medical Relations and Head of the Major Trauma team.
My role involves supporting the Major Trauma service in major trauma (personal injury) liability investigations, as well as providing health pathway support, general law advice and pursuing insurance compensation claims for major trauma patients/clients.
Our clients have typically suffered a major trauma, this can range from brain injury to routine muscular-skeletal injuries which can be an extremely difficult and distressing time for clients and their families. I focus on supporting rehabilitation with early intervention in order to improve the outcomes, particularly by securing insurance payments and ensuring use of the Rehabilitation Code which facilitates the best possible treatment to assist in their recovery, as well as securing them compensation for injuries suffered and financial losses.
Within the Major Trauma service, I offer advice around general law to clients to ensure I can support them with any issues that may arise and support them along the health pathway. This assists in alleviating anxieties allowing them to focus on their recovery.
I work closely supporting the Mary Seacole Trust and Headway with Eman Hassan and Trevor Sterling.
I enjoy playing football in my spare time and am an avid Newcastle United supporter.

I started working in residential property in 2002 after completing my Law degree. I have spent most of my time working in the Hampshire area but have dealt with residential properties ranging from Newcastle down to the Isle of Wight.
My clients range from first time buyers in their early 20’s to those in later life who are looking to downsize, Investors, Landlords, Companies and private individuals.
Buying or selling a property can be a daunting experience for a lot of people and I try to take out as much of the worry as I can. With the large amount of paperwork that has to be completed or read, it can be overwhelming if a client has not done it before or has not moved home in 20 years. I try to provide as much help as possible to take the stress out of the transaction.
I am a regular gym goer and while my playing days are unfortunately over, I still try to watch as much rugby as I can. As my wife is Italian I am trying to learn the language.

Our clients are parents of children with special educational needs and young people.

As well as recovering compensation for our clients, I place particular emphasis on securing rehabilitation for them at an early stage. I have extensive experience of working closely with expert case managers and rehabilitation companies to secure this goal.
I have worked on numerous cases involving brain injury and other life changing injuries, including the case of Black v Barrett, a spinal cord injury and brain injury case that settled for £6 million, the case of C v D a complex musculo-skeletal injury case that settled for £1.75 million, the case of D v D a brain injury case that settled for £1.2 million, and the case of D v B, a brain injury case that resulted in an award of £4.45 million.

I’ve always enjoyed Family Law and consider myself lucky to have a job I enjoy everyday. I recognise the sensitive and attentive approach needed when undertaking family matters. I aim to build a strong, supportive and professional relationship with all my clients.

I love travelling and I’m a big foodie, the two hobbies seem to go hand in hand as I love trying new cuisines whenever and wherever I go on holiday.

I qualified as a solicitor in 2008 and joined Moore Blatch as an Associate in September 2018 from a Westminster practice, having previously worked in firms in Newcastle upon Tyne, Bristol and London.
I am an experienced private client lawyer running a full and varied caseload. I pride myself in providing an empathetic, caring and personalised service while explaining technical points of law in a straightforward way, seeking to find practical solutions to the issues presented.
My specialism is predominantly in dealing with complex technical probate matters, estate planning and trusts. I act for a wide range of clients, including high and ultra high net worth clients, business owners and have worked with families spanning several generations.
Clients often come to private client lawyers at very difficult points in their lives, and I aim to help clients to resolve matters as efficiently, effectively and sensitively as possible. Wherever possible, I also encourage clients to start their estate planning early and keep this under review, looking at all aspects of their lives as a whole, so that they are prepared for all eventualities.
My interests include theatre (especially Shakespeare), baking and floristry.
