Neurotrauma team expands with appointment of new specialist
The specialist Neurotrauma team has expanded again through the appointment of a new specialist.
Caitlin Ord has joined the department to offer additional support to clients nationally who instruct the firm on the strength of its legal and service excellence.
A Northumbria University graduate who has also completed her Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC), Caitlin combines her legal knowledge with a background of supporting people with disabilities.
During her time as a student, she took on a number of roles within the care sector, including working as a support work team leader in a short-stay children and young adults’s care service, as well as being a one-to-one care assistant for a teenage boy with disabilities.
“Having worked closely with people living with disabilities and their families, I appreciate the importance of building relationships and establishing strong lines of communication, to ensure they feel supported and able to speak to you about their concerns,” says Caitlin.
“That really impresses me about the service Sintons delivers – the Neurotrauma team works with people with life-changing injuries and the client service delivered by the team during the most traumatic times makes a huge difference to the families affected.
“The team’s reputation is very strong for its legal work too, and I’m very much forward to being part of it going forward, learning from some of the best lawyers in their field.”
Andrew McGowan, head of Neurotrauma at Sintons, said: “We are seeing growing amounts of instructions nationally, the majority of which come from referral or recommendation on the strength of our work, so we continue to grow to ensure we can deliver the legal and client service excellence for which we are known.
“We’re delighted to welcome Caitlin to the team, whose background in care and achievements in her legal studies combine to ensure she has both the professional and personal skills to support our clients in every way possible. We look forward to working with her to develop our department even further.”
