Meet our expert lawyers who are dedicated in making life better for our clients.
I am a partner in the firm’s medical negligence team, helping clients with complex claims resulting from substandard healthcare and medical practices.
As a medical negligence specialist, my clients are those who have sustained orthopaedic, gynaecological, maternal birth injury, obstetric or brain injuries, often with life changing or catastrophic results. I also have a particular interest in handling cases of cauda equina syndrome and sight loss (ophthalmic). My clients are often concerned initially about the complexity of the claims process, so I make sure I guide them through the legal maze and give them the clarity they need to feel reassured and confident.
I am approachable and open with my clients and take the time to get to know them and understand their concerns. I know that the legal process can be daunting, so I make it a priority to put clients at ease and let them know that they are in the best possible hands.

Our client, a 39-year-old mother of three children, suffered a third-degree anal tear (affecting the muscles of the anal sphincter) during the course of delivering her first child in September 2016 by forceps. The case included allegations that there was a failure to recognise the tear at the point of delivery.

Don’t take our word for it…
Moore Barlow recently handled my medical negligence claim. Maya and Amie have been fantastic throughout. They explained everything so well and really put my mind at ease. They always kept me updated and went above what you would expect, by always making time for extra calls/emails to make it as stress free as possible for me. They achieved an amazing result and I am so grateful for their help. I would highly recommend them. They really were fantastic and made what is a very difficult process as easy and manageable as possible, while being kind, caring and understanding.
I met Maya Sushila three and half years ago. She has been a true fighter on my behalf and has left no stone unturned. She has fought for me to the end and I much appreciate all her hard work and also the team’s efforts. Thank you Maya.
Client – Mrs JL
I first came into contact with Maya after a recommendation from a charity that provides support for my condition some 6 years ago now. From the outset Maya was professional, courteous and accommodating. Roll on 6 years, that was just the tip of the iceberg of what a truly exceptional & formidable clinical negligence Lawyer she actually is. Thank you Maya!
She is one of the most diligent solicitors I know. She is very thoughtful and has excellent analytical skills. She is very persistent and there is no angle she has not considered. She is undoubtedly first rate.
For 9 years you have been a pillar and a rock through the duration of this process. You made me feel that I had someone to count on, someone to rely on, and someone that would listen when things were hard. Through your professionalism you did not forget that you were working with people and you took into consideration our emotions.
Thank you for all that you have done for me over the last three years. It seems difficult to put into words exactly how I feel, but I think it’s fair to say you have been so much more than just my solicitor. Your expertise in clinical negligence has been truly outstanding and your professionalism absolutely first class. You have been a confidante and a friend.
