More about Tim

I often assist clients through what can often be a daunting and upsetting procedure as they pursue their freedom from detention. It’s what encouraged me in to a career in law, a desire to help those unable to defend or represent themselves effectively against the state system.

What excites me about my role is being able to sometimes pick holes in a hospital teams approach and persuade an independent tribunal that my client’s liberty is justified and their detention unnecessary.

In my spare time I like watching Grimsby Town Football Club occasionally win! Then eat the best fish and chips in Cleethorpes. Go on holiday usually to Scotland or Tuscany. I just love driving on Italian roads!
