Sarah specialises in all aspects of personal injury law. She takes instructions on the full range of personal injury cases including multi track, fast track trials, inquests, Stage 3 hearings, disposal hearings and interlocutory hearings including applications and costs and case management conferences. She has also developed a busy paperwork practice, both advisory and drafting.

Sarah receives instructions from both claimants and defendants and will accept instructions on a Conditional Fee basis where appropriate.

Whilst studying for the Bar Sarah was the legal assistant to two senior junior personal injury barristers, whom she assisted on matters involving life-changing and catastrophic injuries, fatal accidents, clinical negligence and inquests. She is adept at reviewing and analysing complex and voluminous medical records and reports and is expressly interested in expanding her Clinical Negligence practice and accepts instruction from both Claimants and Defendants at inquests and in court proceedings.

In addition to her personal injury and clinical negligence practice Sarah also has extensive document/disclosure review experience and welcomes instructions in this regard.

Prior to pupillage, she was a member of Her Majesty’s Coroner’s legal team for the Manchester Arena inquests (now inquiry) where she took a lead role in reviewing disclosed materials and drafting disclosure reports, she therefore has significant experience in dealing with highly sensitive materials. Sarah is also a member of the Government Legal Department’s Junior Junior scheme and has been instructed by a number of government departments to undertake document review.
