With over 30 years of experience in personal injury law, Siobhan brings a wealth of expertise to her new role. Over the last decade Siobhan’s career has focused on representing clients who have suffered catastrophic or life changing injuries.

Talking about Siobhan’s arrival, Joint Head of the Serious Injury team Cari Sowden-Taylor said;

“Siobhan is a great addition to our Serious Injury team. Based in the South of England, Siobhan is able to provide specialist legal advice to individuals and families who have sadly suffered life changing injuries including brain injury, limb loss, burns and poly trauma following road traffic collisions, accidents at work and assaults.

Commenting on her appointment, Siobhan said:

“I’m delighted to join Hugh James and contribute to the expanding team in Southampton. Whilst I was sorry to leave my previous firm after nearly 32 years, when the opportunity arose to join Hugh James, I knew without hesitation that this would result in a great career move.

“I’m very much looking forward to helping to develop the Serious Injury team as we expand our experienced team of lawyers across the South of England. I’ve met some great colleagues who have already made me feel very welcome and am looking forward to a bright future.”
