Work Department

Personal injury.


A robust all-rounder who enjoys getting stuck into a spectrum of personal injury claims, from accidents in the workplace or trips and slips, to road traffic accidents, preferring to embrace complex, challenging and technical issues arising from the field. Has outstanding technical ability and takes a no-nonsense approach to work and litigation, with a great deal of advocacy experience. Jean’s passion is getting the absolute best settlement on behalf of her clients and she uses her broad experience, skill and a straight-talking approach with the other side to ensure just that. Her caseload supports this, with regular six-figure awards in cases as diverse as complex RTA’s, occupiers liability and accidents at work. 

Jean also heads up the Road Traffic Accident team within JMW where she has been instrumental in the team’s establishment and progression, remaining heavily involved in its improvement and development, passing on her vast knowledge and experience to them and encouraging them to adopt a flexible, committed and efficient approach to a large caseload.  She works closely with the team to manage and train them and adapt them to any Governmental changes to ensure their continued efficiency and profitability.  Jean is also heavily involved in the development of JMW’s in-house case management system ‘Proclaim,’ regularly enhancing the system to facilitate better fee earner experience and ultimately creating bespoke solutions that meet the needs of an ever-evolving personal injury department.
