Litigation Executive
» Back To Department

James is a Litigation Executive in the Employers Liability department, having originally joined the firm in our New Client Team in November 2015.

When asked what James likes best about his role at Express, he commented “I enjoy the challenges that I face when running personal injury cases. Every case is different and interesting in its own right. I take great pleasure in helping those who have been injured at work through no fault of their own and fighting for the best possible outcome for them. The best thing about my job is simply knowing that I have made a difference in helping someone when they needed it most.”

“I’m driven and determined to get the best outcome for my clients. I’m sympathetic to the difficulties injured people face and know that whilst the physical injury itself can often be difficult to deal with, there is also often the added stress and worry of taking time off work, not being paid and the worry of potentially not being able to pay your bills. I aim to make the process of making a personal injury claim as quick and uncomplicated as possible and am always available to offer advice and assistance to my clients.”


£2,500 awarded to Mr White 6 weeks after defendants asked us to withdraw the claim.



In his spare time James likes to play Badminton, playing as often as he can, he has been known to be very competitive! James also likes to read, he will often be found with a book in hand, more often biographies/autobiographies. He also enjoys going to clubs and watching stand-up comedy, his favourite comedian being Bill Burr and Dave Chapelle. James generally spends most of his time with his daughter who he also says is his best friend.

His favourite quote –

“To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived – that is to have succeeded” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
