Tom has experience in conducting inquests in the Coroner’s Court. He is happy to assist and advise at all stages.
His experience in personal injury law means Tom is well-placed to offer continuity of representation, from inquests to civil actions for damages arising post-inquest.
Tom has also undertaken a secondment with and continues to be instructed by the South Yorkshire Police. This involves drafting applications for protective public orders, such as Sexual Harm Prevention Orders and Domestic Violence Protection Orders. He appears in court on the hearing of such matters and prosecuting such breaches. Tom also provides specific advice on issues arising out of work undertaken by the police, which has included making recommendations of local police force regulations.
Tom’s previous experience working with Leeds Children’s Social Work Services and Leeds Adult Social Care gives him a good understanding and grounding in regulatory bodies and their duties, as well as a sensitive manner, which helps when instructed on inquests.
Born and raised in Leeds, Tom has a strong connection with the local community and experience of working with such regional partner agencies.
