Further growth in JMW medical negligence team 


Hot on the heels of the new recruits appointed by the medical negligence department at JMW Solicitors last quarter the team has added even more talented individuals to its ranks. 

Numbers have been boosted with the addition of Sami Halpern, who has joined as a paralegal working across a mix of serious and complex cases of medical negligence. Sami’s recruitment has been possible due to continued success of the team and the promotion of existing staff.  

Sami will support the work of partner Sally Leonards and associate Melissa Gardner as they help the victims of medical negligence nationwide to challenge the poor treatment they have received.  

Sami achieved a first-class honours degree in Law from the University of Liverpool and a commendation in the Legal Practice Course he studied at Manchester’s College of Law.

Previously he worked at Manchester charity 42nd Street, which supports children and young people experiencing mental health problems or emotional difficulties. 

Sami commented:  “JMW has an excellent reputation in the region as a great company to work for and one that is clearly going places. Meanwhile the clinical negligence department is a leading national authority, as recognised by the industry bibles, so I am thrilled to have secured a position in its burgeoning team.”

Eddie Jones, head of medical negligence at JMW, added: “Sami’s excellent academic achievements and experience of supporting vulnerable people makes him a perfect fit for a role in the field of clinical negligence.

"Our clients have frequently been left emotionally traumatised by what has happened to them and need on-going support in addition to the legal guidance we provide. I am delighted to welcome Sami to the team.”
