Department: CICA

Position: Director and Head of CICA

Experience: Craig has a dual role within our firm as head of both the CICA and Aviation departments.

Craig began his legal career working as a CICA fee earner in 2008 and has made rapid progress since qualifying as a solicitor and becoming one of the youngest Directors of a law firm in the North West. Craig has amassed extensive experience representing clients in pursuing CICA claims and has often obtained awards in excess of £100,000.

Despite his age, Craig conducts all of his own CICA Appeal Tribunals and currently boasts a 100% track record against the CICA at appeal hearing. As a specialist in dealing with CICA claims, particularly in the field of sexual abuse, Craig has an understanding of the sensitivity and level of sympathy required to assist any innocent victims throughout the progression of their case. Craig’s knowledge of the CICA Scheme coupled with his ability in legal advocacy ensures that all of his clients receive the highest standard of service in this particular field.

As a secondary role within the firm, Craig also heads up the Aviation Law Department, which since the department’s establishment has taken several leading airlines before the Court’s and has successfully obtained judgement in favour of our clients under The Denied Boarding Regulations (EC) 261/2004. To date, Craig has overseen the smooth running of thousands of claims presented by the firm on behalf of aggrieved passengers throughout the UK.

Interests: In his spare time Craig enjoys spending time with his family and friends and attends his local gym.
