I have been exclusively involved in claimant personal Injury litigation for over 30 years and a member of APIL since its inception. I served on the Executive committee from 1998- 2001. During this time, I have carried out Personal Injury work for trade unions and their members as well as for individuals, using all methods of funding, as times and rules have changed.
I have worked through all the various reforms of civil litigation, representing injured clients. It is a fight I will continue, to ensure those entitled to justice receive the best possible outcome.
The playing field is not level and will continue to change in the future with reforms already in the pipeline. I believe that experience is essential to be able to adapt to this ever-changing landscape.
APIL, as we are all aware does an excellent job in fighting the activities of the government and the insurance industry. Moreover, APIL is a powerful and effective lobbying force and this work must continue so the voice of the claimant is heard.
As a member of the Executive Committee I will actively participate in all that APIL does to fight for justice and protect clients hurt and injured through no fault of their own and will continue to press for appropriate compensation for all our clients.
