Associate Solicitor, Abuse Claims
Liam joined Simpson Millar in August 2017, becoming an integral part of the Abuse Claims team.
He qualified as a Solicitor in 2013 and graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University with a 2:1 in his law degree, before attending the University of Central Lancashire to study and achieve a Commendation in the Legal Practitioners Course.
Liam has a wealth of experience in Child Abuse cases including experience with group actions. He uses this to get justice for clients making claims against public bodies including councils, schools, religious and charitable organisations, social services and the police.
He also works for clients who pursue compensation claims through the Criminal Injury Compensation Claims scheme, and regularly takes cases to Tribunal hearings.
Before he started to specialise solely in abuse cases, Liam worked on a variety of personal injury cases, including achieving a significant settlement for a claimant involved in a serious accident at work.
While he was working with personal injury claimants, Liam also spent two years volunteering at Manchester University, offering legal advice to students on a wide range of issues.
Interests outside of work
Before qualifying as a Solicitor in 2013, Liam played semi-professional football for Colne FC, and once played in a trial event at Wembley Stadium that was televised by BT Sport.
He also loves travelling, and visited Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji on one extended trip.
