Noteworthy Cases

Successes include securing a fee of £35,000 for a client who tripped on shop frontage, and fees of around £5,000 for individuals injured in a church and while horse riding.

Laura hails from Northwich, Cheshire where in her spare times loves to spend time with her array of animals including 2 horses and 2 dogs.  She also eats, sleeps, breathes all things Disney and loves travelling, visiting new places each year but always a trip to Disney in between.

Needless to say Laura finds it difficult to find one favourite quote – all inspired by Disney – ‘Hakuna Matata’; ‘You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think’ and ‘All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them’.
