A specialist clinical negligence solicitor and head of the clinical negligence team at JMW, is widely regarded as a leading practitioner in the field.  

In the 2015 edition of independent legal guide Chambers and Partners UK, Eddie was awarded Star Individual status in recognition of his extensive experience. Most recently Eddie received further recognition in Chambers and Partners 2016 which notes "Head of department Eddie Jones is a leading practitioner with extensive experience in clinical negligence matters, including specialisms in brain damage, spinal injury and cauda equina syndrome cases. One source praises his "care and passion for what he does."

Eddie has won many high-value and complex claims, including a catastrophic child brain injury case which settled for £6.56 million. Clients frequently comment on his kind and compassionate nature and say he is a trusted source of support at one of the most challenging times of their life. 

Eddie also has great expertise of spinal injury claims, particularly cauda equina syndrome cases and in 2013 secured £2.6 million for a client whose life was devastated by negligent treatment of the condition. According to stats from the NHS Litigation Authority received in November 2013 this is one of the highest compensation settlements secured on a cauda equina syndrome claim against an English hospital trust. 

Eddie is a member of the Law Society’s Clinical Negligence Panel in addition to Action against Medical Accidents’ solicitor referral panel.
