Based at Thompsons Solicitors’ Leeds office, Marion Voss is a highly respected solicitor and one of the firms’ senior associates specialising in industrial diseases, particularly those associated with exposure to asbestos.

Apart from taking complex cases herself – several of them have been worth in excess of £500,000 - Marion heads up a group of lawyers specialising in asbestos-related diseases.

Bearing in mind the lethal nature of diseases such as mesothelioma, Marion always strives to complete the cases as quickly as feasible, gaining the highest possible damages for her clients. She is renowned for her caring attitude to claimants, making sure they understand the law and ensuring they are kept up to date with the latest developments in their claim.

Marion says the most rewarding thing about working for Thompsons is being able to secure compensation and justice for victims of injury involving tragic circumstances.

In her spare time, Marion rides horses, plays netball and enjoys watching football.
