Laura strives to go the extra mile and get the best result she can for all her clients. She is always mindful and sensitive to the fact that clients have often gone through traumatic, difficult experiences and she does everything that she can to ensure that she makes the process as easy and simple as possible.


Laura was solicitor on the case of Ramdhean v Agedo. The case went to trial. It set precedent as establishing that a dental practice had owed a patient referred to it a non-delegable duty of care. This was in relation to advice and treatment provided by a self-employed dentist engaged by the practice. Further, the practice would be vicariously liable for any negligence proved against the dentist.

Laura has run several complex and high value scaphoid fracture claims.

"Friendly solicitor and listened to all our concerns with empathy. Kept us informed every step of the way."
