Our people

Matthew Sheils

I am a solicitor and legal executive with 20 years’ worth of claims handling experience.

Over the years I have handled a broad range of serious personal injury claims, including brain injury, blindness, traumatic amputations and spinal fractures. In addition, I have experience of dealing with fatal accident claims. I am also well versed in all aspects of credit hire.

I am entirely comfortable with all aspects of Fast and Multi-Track Litigation, including drafting pleadings, advocacy, costs budgeting and preparation for trial. I have exceptional knowledge of the CPR and I am meticulous in keeping up to date with developments in the law of personal injury and civil litigation.

I am committed to provide the highest level of service and my clients find me to be approachable and down to earth; with a considerable breadth and depth of knowledge, which I put to good use in the successful pursuit of the claims I handle.

Education

  • Graduate Diploma in Law – BPP Manchester Law School – Commendation
  • Legal Practice Course – BPP Manchester Law School – Distinction

Motivation

What aspects of your job do you enjoy the most?

I lead the firm’s busy RTA Department, and enjoy providing strong technical guidance and expert advice to colleagues and clients alike.

Why did you choose a career in the legal sector?

I wanted a varied and fast paced career with the added incentive of being able to make a real difference to the clients I represent.
