Brenda has been a Personal Injury Lawyer for over 35 years and for the last 20 years has specialised in representing injured motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians.

She is both a keen cyclist and motorcyclist having obtained her full motorcycle licence in 1983. Brenda became an IAM Advanced motorcycle rider in 2018 and an Advanced Driver in 2023.
