Fran is a Solicitor Advocate who practises exclusively in clinical negligence law and has over 20 years of experience in this specialist area.
Originally a Registered General Nurse, Fran qualified as a solicitor in 1998 having undertaken her training with a major healthcare law firm and since that time, she has pursued claims on behalf of both Defendants and Claimants, but now confines her work to claims on behalf of patients, investigating poor care provided by hospitals and doctors, nurses and other clinical practitioners. Much of Fran’s work involves pursuing complaints of delays in diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as cancer, incorrect surgical treatment, and bereavement claims on behalf of both injured adults and children.
Fran is a member of the Law Society’s Panel of Accredited Clinical Negligence Specialists, and a Senior Litigator with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. She has gained Higher Rights of Audience in the Civil Courts, and enjoys advocacy and representing bereaved families at Court and inquests.
In her spare time, Fran enjoys outdoors endurance running, horse riding, and exploring the coastline and wild places on the South West peninsula.
