Jodie commenced her pupillage at No5 Barristers’ Chambers in 2014, specialising in Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury, before taking tenancy the following year. She has since built a busy and diverse practice and regularly appears in the Coroner’s Court representing families and other interested parties. She is thorough and client-focussed and can aptly balance sensitivity with the need to be robust when appropriate. Those instructing Jodie know that they will receive a comprehensive and prompt service.
Jodie has appeared in inquests into suicide, road traffic collisions, accidents at work and healthcare, including a death arising from a failure to diagnose illness; failing to implement CPR to a cardiology patient and the death of a prisoner released on licence. She also has experience in Article 2 and jury inquests.
She also attends Pre-Inquest Reviews and is happy to accept instructions to advise on the prospects of subsequent litigation, as appropriate.
