About Me

About me ‘Karen Pointon’ will help you understand my drive and enthusiasm for an industry that can sometimes be classed as impersonal and aggressive. The information below will give you an insight into my legal expertise and career to date.

My name is Karen Pointon and I qualified as a solicitor of England and Wales in December 2002. I am married and have a little boy. Although I was born in Stoke on Trent, I have worked throughout the United Kingdom. It is only now that I have opened my own legal practice that I am able to work back in my home town permanently.

With the exception of my 3 years working for DLA Piper, my legal career has consisted of Claimant work - acting for the individual in respect of personal injury and loss claims. My 3 years at DLA Piper gave me the necessary Defendant experience to then utilise in my future Claimant work - I now have a much better understanding as to how and why certain claims are defended and am able to pre-empt and prepare for this in my current work.
