When asked what Tom likes best about his role, he commented “I like the sense of achievement I get with each progressing case. Even though I only deal with the very first stage in the claims process, I still experience this first hand. I also really enjoy getting to know my client’s and why the claim is really important to them. One last reason why I enjoy my role is the people that I work with, each and every person in the office is friendly and always happy to help. I do not think you can ask for anything more than that. I also believe I have very good attention to detail. This is important in my current role as if anything is missed in the first stage it could hinder my colleagues working in the following stages.”

Before joining Express Solicitors, Tom attended college where he achieved a starred distinction grade in his BTEC for Applied Law.

Tom was born and raised in Stockport. He is an avid rugby fan and supports the Sale Sharks. “This hobby is shared with my entire family, we all enjoy watching the matches and the majority of us have all played at one time or another.”

Another interest of Toms is music, he spends a lot of his free time listening to music and going to concerts with friends. “I have also attempted learning a few instruments over the years. For a short while I tried learning the guitar but never got to grips with it. Before that I worked my way through 3 different brass instruments, the cornet, the trumpet and the tenor horn. To this day I still don’t understand what possessed me to choose brass instruments over all others but looking back I am glad I did. Because how many people can say they know how to play a brass instrument.”
