About

Welcome to my website, and thank you for visiting.

If you are looking for a law firm which has something more to say for itself than that it is “fast, friendly and efficient”, please take a look around.

I grew up and attended school in the City of Plymouth and studied law at Oxford University.

I qualified as a solicitor in 1998 and I have always worked in Plymouth.  

I have specialised in dealing with disputes of all kinds throughout my career. I have conducted cases successfully in the Court of Appeal, the small claims court and various other courts and tribunals in between.

I have recovered millions of pounds in damages for my clients across a wide range of cases.

I’ve won cases that I’ve been told could not be won.

In 2010 I set up Enigma with another local solicitor so that we could do things our own way. We were determined to be different from every other law firm that we had encountered. Since its inception, Enigma has grown stronger and bigger. A few years ago, we opened a second office in Plymouth and we plan to open a London office shortly.

At Enigma, we specialise in dispute resolution.

We don’t take on cases outside of our specialism.  

I supervise a team of lawyers at Enigma’s head office in Plymouth.

The majority of our clients have come to us because of a recommendation.

Often people come to us looking for an aggressive law firm. If being aggressive means that we stand by what we say, and get on with it, then Enigma is an aggressive law firm. There is far more to litigation than blind aggression, so do not be disappointed if you meet me and I turn out to be a lawyer rather than a Doberman, Rottweiler, or pitbull !

My business partner is Neil Mercer. We are both part of the same law firm but we work from separate offices. If you want to know more about Neil, please visit his website.

If you want to know more about Enigma, by all means take a look around the website but, better still, call the phone number below.
