Sam Elsby - Solicitor

Why did you decide to go into the law?

ITV's 'Crown Court' series (1972-1984) had a lot to do with it! The legal issues were interesting and practicing law seemed to have a useful and practical application in the real world.

Are there any types of injury claim that you have a special interest in?

I have high degree of expertise in brain injury cases. In relation to particular types of claim, most of my cases are road accidents; accidents at work or clinical claims.

Do you have a favourite part of the job?

No single favourite but I enjoy meeting clients; applying the law to a particular case; drafting both schedules of loss and court papers, and advocacy.

Are there any downsides to the work that you do?

It can be frustrating while waiting for Defendant insurance companies/solicitors to do what they should be doing. Often the only answer is to start court proceedings.

Outside work, what are your interests?

Cinema; amateur theatre directing; 20th Century art; mountain-biking; IT/technology.

Katie Tizzard - Paralegal

When and why did you decide to go into the law?

At college I studied Law, English Literature and Spanish and Law was my favourite A-level subject as there are so many different elements to it. There is an aspect of the law to suit everyone.

I decided against going to University, although I had a place, and am now both working and undergoing my training through CILEX (Chartered Institute of Legal Executives).

Are there any types of injury claim that you have a special interest in?

I do not have a real preference but I do enjoy Clinical Negligence claims because they are the most complex and often involve a lot of hard work. Once the claim is concluded I feel a sense of achievement.

Do you have a favourite part of the job?

My favourite part of the job is that the work is very varied. Some days I might be out in meetings or seeing clients. On other days I am in the office doing work, but the work itself is always different.

Are there any downsides to the work that you do?

Not really, although sometimes people do not realise that I am a fee earner in my own right, and training to be a lawyer.

Outside work, what are your interests?

Reading , music, running, binge-watching television series.
