Senior Associate, Asbestos Claims
Jessica started working as a law clerk in a personal injury practice nine years ago whilst she was still studying at University. It was during this time that she realised that she wanted to work in personal injury litigation to assist those suffering from injury or illness through no fault of their own, achieve fair compensation.

She is inspired to help her clients achieve a positive outcome when they are going through an extremely difficult time. Her clients’ stories and bravery motivates her to help them achieve justice.

“I would like to thank you and your assistants in the work you did in relation to my case. The past 8 months has been a blur and a nightmare… One component of my life that has not been a nightmare is the work that you carried out with my claim. From the very start to the end you always showed compassion to my situation… you made the situation bearable through your compassion. You worked extremely hard and always made yourself available… You most probably have a tight time schedule to work with in these cases, therefore you have to be well organised to get the work completed. I noticed this the whole way through my claim. Once again thank you for your diligence with this claim. My family and I are very appreciative of this.”
