More about Sian

We asked Sian:

Q: What do you enjoy most about your job?
A: Clinical Negligence claims are extremely diverse and complex in nature and every case requires an individual approach. I enjoy the challenge of building a case and seeking justice for my clients. Injuries resulting from negligence can have serious and long-lasting effects on clients and their families; a successful case can transform lives.

Q: What can clients expect from you?
A: Commitment and compassion. I am easy to talk to and always listen to what my clients have to say. I try to make what is often a stressful and upsetting experience as easy as possible for my clients. I take care to explain the complex medical and legal issues in a way that is clear and easy to understand.

What aspect of this area of law do you find most interesting?
A: My particular interest is in obstetric cases of maximum severity (i.e. cases relating to pregnancy and childbirth). I have acted for a number of children with cerebral palsy. However, irrespective of the complexity or value of the case, I find that all cases present unique challenges and are interesting in their own way.

What are you interests outside of work?
I enjoy taking out my two road bikes, Millie and Molly, and am also accredited to ride the track at the velodrome. As a keen road cyclist and a member of two cycling clubs, I am also passionate about encouraging more female cyclists to get out and ride their bikes.

In August 2016 I completed the 24 hour Newcastle to London bike ride (315 miles!) to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support.
