Often clients come to me at an extremely challenging time in their lives, whether they themselves have been injured or they have sadly lost a loved one. I provide a sensitive and effective approach to the legal process and seek for them the compensation they deserve in recognition of the pain, suffering and financial losses caused by negligence.

Amy was absolutely brilliant – timely, efficient, very caring and understanding. Always professional. My husband and I very much appreciated being able to work with someone like Amy during what was a lengthy and at times quite emotional process.
achieved a settlement of £115,000 for Mr L in his clinical negligence claim against Ashford & St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The claim arose out of an incorrect diagnosis of adenocarcinoma following a mix-up of prostate biopsy samples at St Peter’s Hospital
secured a settlement of £100,000 for a client whose wife sadly died from complications arising as a result of an investigative medical test, in respect of which she was not properly consented. Whilst Barts Health NHS Trust admitted they had failed to obtain informed consent, they disputed causation. Amy argued on the client’s behalf that his wife would not have undergone the procedure in question if there had been sufficient discussion enabling her to consider the non-invasive treatment options, which she would have been able to access under her private medical insurance
- acted for a 29-year old motorcyclist in his road traffic accident claim. The claimant suffered serious orthopaedic and psychological injuries in addition to a range of financial losses, in respect of which a settlement in the region of £110,000 was agreed
- represented the daughters of a 79-year old gentleman at inquest following his tragic death from pulmonary thromboembolism secondary to deep vein thrombosis. Amy helped the family to secure a Prevention of Future Deaths report, which the coroner issued in light of concerns regarding inconsistencies in the prescription of TED stockings at London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust
Really great communication, updates and advice. Amy always did things when she said she would and the process from her side was as smooth as I think she could make it. I never had to chase Amy for any updates and I always felt like I had all the information I needed for each stage of the process and to help me make decisions.
