Judy represents both families and corporate clients at inquests, utilising her technical knowledge and her detailed cross-examination skills in a sensitive manner, necessary to secure the best results.

She is a very experienced Counsel who has a nationwide reputation for her meticulous preparation and ability to assimilate, understand and present complex facts, in particular arising out of extensive medical records.

She has been involved in seminars in particular in relation to inquests arising out of hospital deaths.

Judy is well known for a sympathetic approach and her personable nature enables her to understand the concerns of her clients and ensure that the Coroner is fully aware of the issues.

Judy is also a Court Examiner, having been appointed by the Lord Chancellor in October 2017. Court Examiners, who are barristers or solicitors who have practised for at least five years, undertake examinations in line with Civil Procedure Rule 34. This is a part-time position and Judy continues to remain in practice.
