Martin's Specialisms

More about Martin

Coming from a nursing background I have always enjoyed helping people, particularly those who are unwell or in a vulnerable position. This is what interested me and led me to pursue a career in law, especially mental health law. My objective is to ensure that my clients’ rights are protected. It is so rewarding to see patients recover from what at times can be a serious debilitating illness and mental state to returning  back into the community able to manage and live their lives to their fullest.

My main hobby / passion is running. I regularly compete in half and full marathons and have run these both in the UK and abroad, having run the Chicago marathon and hopefully running both London and New York marathons in 2021.
