Cynthia is a partner in our national social care and abuse team and has 30 years’ experience in the defence of civil claims brought against public sector bodies, including the NHS, local authorities, and the police, as well as private sector bodies and their insurers.

Her practice spans personal injury EL and PL, the range of claims against social services departments (children and adults) and the education sector, Human Rights and Equality Act claims, claims against the police and related inquests and advisory work.

Cynthia and the teams she has been part of have handled many high-profile and sensitive claims which have received wide media coverage. The range of work she undertakes is ever broadening and extends over a significant geographical footprint.

Cynthia is regarded as bringing “a wealth of experience to the tricky area of Social Service claims. She is reassuring when dealing with the front-line Social Care employees and draws the information out in a caring manner.” (Legal 500 2021)

Cynthia is a regular speaker at our Social Care Forums and other events.
