Associate, Solicitor01752 292320
Liz is a Solicitor and Associate within the Industrial Disease and Personal Injury department.
She qualified as a solicitor in 1995 and has over twenty years experience acting for individuals or their bereaved families; usually claiming compensation against their employers. Liz has gained a reputation for excellent client care and her clients often comment how compassionate and caring she is towards them, whilst at the same time taking a firm approach with the opposition to achieve ambitious settlements. Throughout her career, she has handled hundreds of successful cases.
Liz trained at Bond Pearce in Plymouth and then joined the personal injury team where she acted for many trade union members injured at work due to accidents or exposure to asbestos. She joined Wolferstans in 2015, after seven years working for national firm Lyons Davidson in the serious injury and fatal accident team.
Liz has particular expertise in asbestos claims including acting for clients suffering with asbestosis; pleural thickening; mesothelioma and asbestos related lung cancer; or those who have lost a loved one through asbestos related disease. She also represents families following fatal accidents and has over ten years experience in the highly specialist field of fatal accident/disease litigation.
Her clients report that they are kept well informed and find her very approachable.
Liz has also been involved in high profile professional negligence litigation and she is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
Outside of work Liz enjoys the beautiful Devon countryside: especially family walks on the coast or the moor, when her teenage sons can be persuaded!
The service was excellent, it made my father and myself feel understood and valued as an individual. Nothing was too much trouble and we, as a family, felt in control and aware of what was happening at all time.
It was a lucky day when I contacted Liz Making in the wake of receiving the worst of diagnoses. Exemplary in her professional capacity and a very skilled negotiator, she is also a person of the highest emotional intelligence. Just brilliant.
Mr Major, Launceston
” I would like to thank Liz Makin for all her hard work. She pulled out all the stops to bring this claim to an end but at the same time she was friendly, professional and very compassionate towards me in dealing with this claim. She understood how difficult is was but I was very pleased with the outcome.”
Mrs Harris, Plymouth
