Lesley Herbertson

As an integral part of the clinical negligence department, Lesley offers over 20 years of experience in dealing cases where individuals have suffered all sorts of physical and psychological harm caused by their treating doctors. Despite dealing with a massive range of injuries caused as a result of medical error, Lesley specialises in acting on behalf of babies and children who have suffered brain injury at the time of their birth.

As a mother of two young children, Lesley loves to spend time with her family. Before the children arrived, Lesley used to be a keen salsa dancer and still enjoys dancing, whenever the opportunity arises. In the remaining spare time that she has, Lesley enjoys going out with her husband as well as her friends to the cinema or for a meal.

Chambers 2018 says:
Lesley Herbertson has recently handled a delay of treatment case concerning cauda equina. She has additional capabilities in assisting with failings in district nursing and delays in diagnosis leading to brain injuries.

Legal 500 says:

Lesley Herbertson is a ‘first-class solicitor, completely efficient and totally intelligent with excellent communication skills’.
