Marcia is a rounded common law barrister who is an active advocate in the High Court, Crown Court and County Court. Despite her obvious interest in Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury litigation, Marcia maintains a broad civil, immigration, family and regulatory practice.
Before being called to the Bar, Marcia had a successful clinical career at UCL Hospital London, where apart from her regular practice she was a Clinical Research Fellow and Staff Governor on their Executive Board. With her research team, Marcia published work in the field of Paediatric Endocrinology. Her strong scientific qualification has placed her at an advantage when reading medical and forensic reports for trials. Her clinical experience is valuable when cross-examining medical expert witnesses.
Prior to that, she was responsible for Medical Negligence claims for Camden and Islington Health Authority, preparing over 1000 cases for trial. This background provides Marcia with a clear advantage when handling Medical Negligence and Personal Injury cases.
Marcia has completed secondment at the Nursing and Midwifery Council and is competent in dealing with health care regulatory cases at all stages and level of court. She claims comprehensive knowledge of fitness to practice issues and is able to represent clients with confidence. She has also worked at the Serious Fraud Office on cases of high level commercial fraud, bribery and corruption.
She currently represents both local authority and private law family cases and respondents in the first tier and upper tribunals on a regular basis.
