Julia joined Hugh James in 2015 as a paralegal in the Industrial Disease department and started her training contract with the firm in 2018. After spending the majority of her training contract in the Clinical Negligence department, she qualified into this team in March 2020.
Julia manages a case load of varied clinical negligence claims including delay in diagnosis of cancer, spinal injuries and maternity claims. Julia also takes instructions in fatal accident claims, including matters which involve inquests. Julia continues to assist senior colleagues in the team with complex and high value cases including paediatric brain injury.
Julia has a professional and friendly approach and understands the sensitivity required in many clinical negligence cases. She works hard to achieve the outcome her clients’ want and understands the difference compensation can make to the lives of those injured by negligence, whilst appreciating that often it is not the only desired outcome of those who bring a claim.
