Matthew has an excellent all-round understanding of chronic pain. ‘He is entirely unruffled and instils confidence.’ ‘The doyen of highways claims, he is extremely bright and able to get right to the heart of the issues.’ “
Matthew deals with all aspects of personal injury litigation for both claimants and defendants. He aims for a roughly equal split between claimant and defendant work, taking the view that it makes for a more rounded and better lawyer to have insight into the thinking of the opponent.
With over 20 years’ experience, he has considerable expertise in highway law, industrial diseases (particularly asbestos), inquests and costs, as well as the more routine employers’ liability, public liability and road traffic claims. He has been described by clients as “forensically thorough” with “fantastic attention to detail.”
He thinks of himself as a “common lawyer” and enjoys occasional cases dealing with more obscure areas of law.
