Graham has been a Personal Injury litigator since qualification in 2000 and has over recent years also built up a successful practice in Clinical Negligence. He graduated with first class honours in law from the University of Westminster in 1996.

Graham runs a variety of types of Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence claims. He is currently litigating 3 high value negligent birth claims.

Previous cases include: (a) a settlement of just under 1 million pounds where a 13-year-old car passenger was severely injured when it ran into the back of a scaffolding truck; (b) an award of £65,000 for a client whose bile duct was severed whilst undergoing laparoscopic gall bladder surgery; (c) wrongful diagnosis and subsequent negligent treatment of a very rare urachal cancer leading eventually to a settlement of £167,500 (the defendant initially offered £50,000); (d) recovery of more than £140,000 for a client who had been severely beaten and suffered depressed fractures to her skull and brain damage.

Graham is a member of the Law Society Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme and is accredited as a Litigator of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL). He is very aware of the stresses of bringing what are often very sensitive claims and always puts his clients’ needs and welfare first.

Sonia Dass is truly something special!

She helped me with a spouse application for my wife to enter the UK. Her professional attitude to break down and explain every single aspect is admirable and her compassion towards my situation made me feel reassured. Sonia has amazing attention to detail and this is what you want in a solicitor, she is definitely on top of her game when it comes to compiling the relevant information. The process wasn’t as straight forward as I thought but she gave me the confidence to believe that everything would be okay and within a month of submitting the application my wife got the approval. If it wasn’t for Sonia, my wife wouldn’t be here.

Thank you so much for going the extra miles for me – Highly Recommended!

“Sandra Riordan goes above and beyond most solicitors in her dedicated commitment to her client and meticulous preparation, all carried out with great charm and limitless patience.” 


Henry Blaxland Q.C.

Sandra is a senior member of our crime department. She qualified as a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives in 1994 specializing in Criminal Defence work.

Sandra is a Duty Solicitor in Magistrates’ Court Advocacy and Police Station Representation. She has a large caseload covering all areas of work from police station investigation through the magistrate’s court to the crown court and court of appeal. Sandra has a supervisory role within the firm and reviews the work of other fee earners.

Sandra is an organized, highly motivated criminal advocate with a wealth of experience ranging from summary only excess alcohol and shoplifting cases to more complex cases including murder, conspiracy to supply drugs and large scale fraud. No case is too big or too small. Sandra’s current caseload covers a wide variety of offences including a high value conspiracy to supply class A drugs and murder. She is particularly expert at representing youths and vulnerable clients suffering from mental health and learning difficulties due to her compassionate ability to communicate effectively and present their position to the courts.

Her experience and expertise in this field makes her an exceptional member of our criminal defence team. Sandra is dedicated and thorough and focuses on individual client requirements and needs so as to provide advice, support and representation throughout the legal process. It is this attention to detail that ensures that her clients always return and recommend her services to others.

Client Testimonials

Sandra has an immense capacity to absorb the case notes, the pre-sentence report and our narratives, whilst also being a fantastic listener, making our daughter feel understood and getting her to grasp the situation she was in.

Sandra was both professional and warm, offering sound personal and legal advice to our daughter. Sandra managed to represent the complex medical and emotional traumas in our daughter’s story in a lucid and compelling way, contextualizing the situation for the magistrate.

The outcome was the best possible one whilst enabling justice to be done, so our daughter could appreciate the seriousness of her actions. I cannot commend Sandra Riordan enough, both myself and my husband and indeed our daughter, were very fortunate that she was the duty solicitor handing our daughter’s case. We all owe her a huge debt of gratitude for her wisdom and expertise.

 

— Valerie Hey

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help and support throughout my hell for the past year. It is now at an end thanks to all your hard work, perseverance and belief in me.
