Laura joined us in 2012.  She trained at a national law firm, qualifying as a solicitor in 2008, choosing to specialise in medical negligence claims.

She represents injured people and their families in claims against GPs, the NHS and private hospitals.  Laura also has experience of medical negligence claims against the Ministry of Defence arising from treatment provided to members of the armed forces.

She is passionate about fighting for compensation for her clients to enable them to rebuild their lives and also, where possible, to obtain an explanation as to what went wrong and why.

Laura has pursued cases involving many medical specialties including GP care, nursing care, orthopaedics, obstetrics, surgery (including cosmetic surgery), ophthalmology, paediatrics and oncology.
