Penelope Heighton

Associate Solicitor

Penelope is an Associate Solicitor in the Personal Injury department.

Since studying law at Bristol University she trained to be a solicitor at a top 100 national law firm based in Exeter and has lived in the South West for many years now.

She has joined Dunn and Baker from a national specialist personal injury firm where she worked for the previous 8 years, gaining extensive experience in all aspects of Personal Injury Law.

Penelope looks forward to bringing her specialist knowledge to help injured people closer to home in Devon and being part of Quality Solicitors Dunn &  Baker’s expanding specialist Personal Injury team.

She takes pride in being approachable and assisting clients sensitively during what can be a traumatic time for them and their families. Good health is often taken for granted. When it is taken away due to no fault of your own this has a profound impact.

Penelope appreciates that usually clients have had no previous experience of making a Personal Injury claim. It is therefore very important to make the experience as stress free as possible.

Penelope is experienced and determined when fighting contested disputes through the court process when this is unavoidable to secure the best possible outcome for a client.

As a fluent Spanish speaker she has a particular interest and advantage in dealing with clients who have had accidents in Spain/Spanish speaking countries
