Dave is a senior solicitor in the serious and catastrophic injury team, based in the Manchester office and acting for clients across the North West. Having qualified as a solicitor in 2003, Dave has always specialised in personal injury litigation and acting for catastrophically injured accident victims and their families.

Dave’s particular specialisms include acting for those with severe brain injuries, those who have suffered amputations and clients who have sustained serious orthopaedic and poly-traumatic injuries.

Dave has represented families at inquests and pre-inquest hearings, securing significant compensation settlements for families including children of the deceased.

Driven to secure the maximum possible damages, Dave works with his clients and their families to draw together a team from multiple organisations that offers the best possible immediate and long-term support and rehabilitation.

Dave is proud to work for a firm that wears its heart on its sleeve and as a matter of principle acts only for the injured, refusing to work for those who cause harm or their insurers.

Away from working with his clients, Dave enjoys spending time with his young family and Jack Russell dog Bertie. He is a member of his local tennis club and gym, and is an avid Liverpool Football Club fan.
