Jonathan has a specialised practice covering all aspects of Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence work. He has a busy practice which balances frequent court appearances with paperwork, and acts regularly for both claimants and defendants.
He is regularly instructed on all levels of claim, from Small Claims to cases on the Multi-Track, and so is well-experienced in providing detailed, clear, tactically sound advice at all stages of the litigation process, as well as being well-versed in courtroom advocacy. Jonathan regularly drafts pleadings, Letters of Claim, Part 35 questions to experts, Part 18 questions, as well as a range of other documents.
He is an approachable, personable advocate who has a down-to-earth approach with both lay and professional clients. Having previously volunteered in a high street solicitors’ firm, he understands the challenges faced by those instructing him and endeavours to reflect that in his attitude towards the turnaround of paperwork and cases in general. He is happy to accept work on a CFA basis in suitable cases.
