Sue joined Shoosmiths in November 2009 as a Senior Solicitor in the Serious Injuries Unit and transferred to the Clinical Negligence Department in July 2012, bringing a wealth of litigation experience.

She works on a wide range of diverse cases across clinical negligence, including cases arising from sub-standard surgery, failure to diagnose/treat cancer, surgery/treatment resulting in male fertility problems, and birth injuries affecting mothers and children.

Being passionate about her work, Sue believes in providing the highest level of legal advice and compensation for her clients. She appreciates the need to deal with matters both efficiently and compassionately for clients who are struggling to come to terms with the effect their injuries have had on their lives.

Prior to joining Shoosmiths, Sue was a personal injury solicitor with Amery Parkes Solicitors for 7 years before taking a 4-year career break to look after her two boys.  Sue attended Leicester University and did her Law Finals at Guildford Law College.

Sue holds Senior Litigator status with the Association of Personal Injury Solicitors (APIL).

Outside of work, Sue enjoys singing, performing in musicals, reading, playing the piano, skiing and supporting her boys on the football and cricket pitches.
