Martin Herson


I’m an experienced litigator, having qualified as a Solicitor in 1993. My practice principally covers high value areas of personal injury and clinical negligence, as well as defending Health & Safety prosecutions. I’ve also developed a specialism in representing families at inquest before the Coroners Court. As part of my personal injury workload, I deal with asbestos related disease claims.

I am a member of APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) and a member of the LawNet Regional Personal Injury Committee. I also hold the Higher Rights of Audience qualification which entitles me to appear before the High Court as Advocate.

Outside of work, I’m an avid golfer now being overtaken by my son and a keen runner, having completed two London Marathons and numerous Half’s with my wife (who is faster!).
