More about Adele Greenough
I have helped many clients secure compensation and I have a passion for ensuring that clients not only receive the payments that they deserve but also that they have access to the treatment and adjustments that they need to move on from an accident.
Quite often a client will require ongoing adjustments or assistance throughout their life as a result of a serious injury, and I work tirelessly to ensure that the client’s needs are looked after into the future with the appropriate care and support that they require.
I have particular pride in my rate of success in many cases where other firms have given up, and regularly achieve success for clients that have allegations made against them or where prospects seem poor. I never shy away from a challenge and relish the chance to fight for my client’s cause. Quite often the cases involve complex medical issues or procedural issues.
I love building a strong rapport with my clients and I really enjoy the satisfaction gained by being able to reassure and support each client. There is no better feeling than gaining your client’s trust and it’s an even better feeling when you are able to secure an excellent result for them. I am also extremely organised and meticulous. I find that those traits really help me to tackle cases which are challenging, I am very tenacious and will push each case to make sure that I do the very best for my client.
In my spare time, I am a keen gardener and artist, having a particular interest in oil painting. I also like to attend the ballet and theatre.
What previous clients have to say
“Adele Greenough was my Solicitor and after a long 5 years she did a brilliant job in settling my claim.”
“Adele Greenough is a modest, yet extremely talented, brilliant solicitor and Express Solicitors are very fortunate to employ her. Incredibly hard-working, professional, focused, articulate and calm. Express took on our complex case that a previous horrendous ‘ambulance chaser’ scam company had fumbled over making mistake after mistake. During a very stressful 3.5-year period Adele Greenough corrected those mistakes supporting and guiding us right through to a justifiable outright WIN.
The attention to detail, determination, dedication, and support during a very demanding and complex case including her excellent choice of a brilliant barrister, Mr Philip Simms Adele did not fail us at any point. Her continued hard work and support directly resulted in justice being rightly won. We cannot recommend Adele Greenough and Express Solicitors highly enough. Thank you so much!”

Mizen v Cartledge – Our client, a 53-year-old lady, sustained a significant injury to her shoulder in a high-speed collision. She took a large amount of time out of work and had limited evidence to support her losses. At Trial, the Claimant was awarded her general damages in the sum of £18,650.00, but the special damages were hotly contested and eventually, the matter was adjourned to allow her time to find evidence to support her special damages.
The Defendant appealed the decision. Adele fought the appeal and successfully secured a further £7,668.00 for special damages for our client, irrespective of the lack of evidence. This gave a total award for the Claimant of £26,318.00, which exceed the original predicted value for the claim by almost £9,000.00.
Offin v AIOI Nissay Dowa Insurance Company of Europe Limited – In this case, the Claimant, a 16-year-old man, was involved in an accident on a motorway. The accident caused relatively modest soft tissue injuries; however, the Claimant was a competitive swimmer who had been hoping to qualify for the Olympics. The Defendant pleaded a case of fraud against our client, having produced evidence showing his participation and attendance in races and swim meets. The Defendant pursued a case of fundamental dishonesty against our client.
Adele took the case and worked tirelessly to obtain and adduce evidence demonstrating the difference in performance at said races and how in competitive swimming, the difference of a few seconds can be devastating. Adele was able to convince the Court of the fact that our client’s injuries did hinder his abilities and the fundamental dishonesty allegation was defeated and our client successfully recovered compensation at a Trial.
Kapswara v Brundell Fault & Others – Our client, a 64-year-old lady, brought her case to Express after being rejected by other firms of Solicitors. The case was accepted by Express Solicitors with just one month to Limitation and no evidence in support of the case. Our client suffered injuries to the neck, shoulder and psychological injuries as a result of the accident. Adele set about gathering the evidence needed in the claim, issued proceedings, and secured an admission of liability. Adele was then able to shortly thereafter, agree settlement of £20,000.00 for our client on a case that other firms had refused to take.
