I have worked as an RTA Fee Earner for 25 years.
I enjoy working hard to ensure that our clients receive the support, rehabilitation and compensation they deserve following a Road Traffic Accident, and making the journey as easy and understandable for them and their families. Knowing that I have helped to secure the deserved compensation for our client’s is very rewarding.
In my spare time, I still enjoy a game of darts. I was previously a Semi-Professional Darts Player competing on the PDC Tour. I reached number 32 in the World rankings and have appeared on Sky Sports in televised competitions on a number of occasions. I also enjoy a game of golf and attending horse racing at York. I am an avid Leeds United supporter and attend as many games as possible.
