22.12.2008

An experienced brain injury solicitor has joined the personal injury department at the Leeds office of national law firm Irwin Mitchell.

Joanne Ewart has been appointed as an associate solicitor within the neurotrauma team at the Wellington Place office.

She joins with 13 years’ experience as a personal injury lawyer, including four years as the head of personal injury at Shulmans, based in Leeds, having originally trained in York.

Joanne is a member of the Solicitors Regulation Authority personal injury panel and accredited as a litigator with APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers).

She said: "I’ve worked on brain injury cases since I was a paralegal before I qualified as a solicitor, which is quite unusual. It is a fascinating and hugely satisfying area of law and I’m looking forward to using my experience at Irwin Mitchell.

"Everyone here is completely focused on helping the clients and I am very pleased to be joining such a talented group of lawyers."

Head of the neurotrauma team and firm partner Jane Horton added: "Joanne is a very knowledgeable and experienced brain injury solicitor and her appointment is the latest sign of the continuing development of our specialist team."
