Professional Biography

Tamsin's academic journey started at the University of Liverpool where she studied for her degree in Law. She then advanced her studies by completing the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law (currently known as the University of Law) in Chester. Her professional journey began with a specialist abuse firm, where she underwent training and qualified as a Solicitor in 2011. Broadening her expertise, Tamsin spent some time at a firm specialising in criminal injuries compensation claims. For over five years, she has been a part of the Simpson Millar team, dedicating her efforts to representing victims and survivors of abuse in various types of claims.

Since 2005, she has been working with victims and survivors of abuse, finding inspiration in supporting them to be listened to and heard. No two survivor stories are the same, and she deeply values the unique stories of every survivor she works with. She recognises the immense courage it takes for them to come forward, a credit to each survivor. Representing these brave individuals on their journey for recognition and justice is not only her profession but a true privilege.

Her representation scope is wide, covering both adult and child victims of recent and historical abuse claims. Tamsin assists clients in civil claims against organisations such as schools, hospitals, clubs, children’s homes, religious and sporting organisations or direct claims against the abuser.

She is deeply involved in claims against the local authority, particularly when abuse has happened in foster homes, children's homes, or where the local authority has been negligent in their duty to protect children from harm. Tamsin also represents victims in their claims to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), even navigating the appeal processes to the Tribunal. Tamsin's expertise further extends to redress schemes, the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA), and Group Actions.

Professional Memberships/Accreditations

Beyond her primary responsibilities, Tamsin is an active member of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers (ACAL). She takes pride in Simpson Millar's collaboration with the National Association for People Abused in Childhood (NAPAC) and is deeply committed to her department's mission—to effect meaningful change, ensuring that more victims and survivors of abuse can access justice in the future.
