Personal Injury (Lime)


Head of LIme Solicitors


Tony is head of our Lime division, our consumer brand dealing with personal injury and clinical negligence claims.

Tony has vast experience in dealing with accidents causing brain injury. These range from minor injuries causing small but perceptible changes in character and brain functioning, to those where there is significant cognitive deficit requiring significant assistance in dealing with day to day affairs and personal needs. He is adept in coordinating case managers, carers, professional deputies, architects in charge of house adaptations, medical experts and accountants to not only be able to secure the best settlement but also to put systems and help in place to meet the client’s needs.

Tony has a keen interest in brain injuries and studied for Headway’s Certificate in Brain Injury Studies through the University of Northampton.

He also has a wealth of experience in dealing with fatal accidents, those causing traumatic amputation of limbs or causing injury sadly requiring amputation as part of treatment. In such cases Tony understands the significant impact on daily life and regularly liaises with specialist prosthetic supply organisations on behalf of his clients as part of the claims process.


Tony graduated from Nottingham University and the Chester College of Law. He undertook his training at the firm and following 25 years’ of service now oversees Lime Solicitors.
