Justin is an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and joined the Firm in February 2019 as a Partner.

Having run all areas of personal injury litigation over a fee earning career of more than three decades, he has spent many years specialising exclusively in medical negligence work. His cases have ranged from primary medical care to surgical treatment in a range of complex areas such as obstetrics, oncology, urology, gastroenterology, gynaecology, pharmacology, orthopaedics and more.

Much of Justin's work has called upon his strong empathetic support and expert understanding of “lost years” and dependency claims, involving clients who have, for example, lost the cure for a terminal condition as a result of substandard medical care.

More recently Justin’s clinical negligence work has dealt with tropical disease, pharmacological, neurological, and neuropsychiatric issues. He managed a large volume of litigation around the substandard prescription of the anti-malaria prophylaxis to members of our Armed Forces, causing significant mental health, neuropsychiatric, and physical injury. He also brought the first case to trial examining the military’s failure to protect soldiers against the risk of Q-fever when deploying to Afghanistan, causing chronic fatigue syndrome.

In his spare time Justin enjoys spending time with his young family, trying to keep fit, and enduring a life-long support of Norwich City Football Club.
