Amin is the Principal Solicitor with over 15 years experience in personal injury work. After leaving the Coventry School of Performing Arts Amin read Law and qualified as a solicitor in 1990. Having worked in many prominent legal firms in West Yorkshire, in 1993 he set up the Applebys office in Bradford.
He has over the years developed a specialism in helping clients who have unfortunately sustained serious head injuries or spinal cord injuries recovering for them substantial compensation thus helping them to rebuild their life. For example in respect of one client who had sustained a serious head injury he recovered a sum of £1.5 million pounds. He believes that whilst any amount of compensation cannot bring back the health once enjoyed, it can help to ease the pain by for example making sure that the accommodation is suited to their requirements, and they receive prompt help from suitable experts and professionals.
Amin believes client care is of the utmost importance and the client is never wrong. He recalls a colleague once said to him that "There is only one boss. The client. And he can fire everybody in the firm from the boss on down simply by spending his money elsewhere."
