Jackie specialises in high value, complex personal injury and clinical negligence work. Her very first case set her clearly on the path that she has pursued since – helping clients who have suffered terrible injuries.
That first case, as a trainee, led to a six-day trial at which her client, a 16 year-old boy, won a heavily contested liability trial. The boy had been left tetraplegic after diving into a tidal swimming pool. Jackie, as a trainee brought the case to a liability trial in ten months by working closely with others. That commitment has remained and grown with her.
She brings a human understanding to all her work, which helps her build good relationships with clients as well as other professionals. She believes that the success of a client’s case is down to building the right team and listening to the client and their needs.
Jackie works a lot with children who have suffered brain injuries. These cases can be complex and long-running, so she applies qualities of sympathy, patience and determination to achieve the best results for her clients.
