In 1997 Steve was admitted as a Solicitor and has since specialised in Personal Injury claims for over 23 years. Steve is presently a member of the Law Society’s Specialist Personal Injury Panel and has been awarded the Senior Litigation accreditation by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.

Many of the cases he deals with involve life changing injuries including:
- Traumatic brain injury

Through exceptional attention to detail, excellent client care skills and his ability to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a case, Steve is able to effectively deal with complex Personal Injury claims.

Steve has also developed a niche specialism representing victims with chronic pain conditions including Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
Steve assists families of victims in a wide range of inquests including:
