Part of the Brain Injury Team
Josephine is a solicitor specialising in representing adults who have suffered brain injuries due to medical negligence or accidents. She joined the firm in September 2019 and works in a team with Ipek Tugcu, Kate O’Brien and Katie Lovick-Norley.
Josephine is committed to providing help and support to clients who have sustained a serious injury in order to achieve the best possible outcome for their claim. She has significant expertise in representing Claimants who lack capacity and understands the importance of working alongside the Claimant’s family and carers to achieve the best outcome. She is able to rely on her experience in dealing with the Court of Protection and The Office of the Public Guardian to assist her clients. She recognises the importance in identifying and addressing neuro-rehabilitation needs early, to assist Claimants in getting back on their feet.
Upon completion of her legal education, Josephine gained experience working as a paralegal for a leading London law firm for four years where she investigated medical negligence claims for individuals who had sustained significant spinal and neurological injuries. She had a client facing role, attending High Court hearings and participating in conferences with medical experts and barristers. A number of the cases on which she worked achieved settlements in excess of £1 million.
She also provided pro-bono advice to patients who were recovering at a neurorehabilitation centre and a serious burns unit, advising them on issues relating to Powers of Attorney, Deputyship Orders and Welfare Benefits.
Josephine attended Leicester University where she obtained an upper second class honours in her law degree. Following University, Josephine completed her Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in Chester.
