Alexandra Barrie



I am a solicitor within the Medical Negligence department in the Manchester office.

I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2011 having completed a law degree. I then went on to complete my Legal Practice Course before joining the firm in 2012.

I run my own caseload, dealing with a variety of different claims, representing both patients and their families who have been subject to medical negligence.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I have always enjoyed a challenge, and from a young age wanted to help other people who find themselves in situations beyond their control.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I have a keen interest not only in the legal side of my role, but also the medical aspect as it is always evolving. 

Although I often meet clients in sad or distressing circumstances, I am driven by being able to help them through a very difficult time. Typically, this is by securing compensation for them - even though it doesn't change what they have been through, it can often help them move on with their lives. During the process, I can also help clients get answers to questions that have been left unanswered for a long time. 

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I really enjoy the friendly atmosphere amongst everyone working at Irwin Mitchell. It is great to work amongst like-minded individuals who all want the very best for their clients. 

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Away from the office I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy playing netball and hockey and occasionally manage a trip to the gym.

Client Testimonial

“Thank you very much for all your help, advice, understanding and patience…the fact that you give clients hope is what is important…I will finish with once more saying thousands of thank yous, keep up the good work and thank you for enabling me to get treatment.”

    Stepping Hill Hospital Verdict Reaction From Victims

    “Our clients have been through an horrendous time over the past few years, often leaving them angry, frustrated and in some distress. Hearing evidence presented at the trial has been extremely difficult for them to deal with. “They are relieved that the jury has delivered a guilty verdict in relation to their cases as it gives them some closure on what happened at Stepping Hill after years of fighting for answers. However, it is now imperative that the NHS Trust moves quickly to reassure those affected that its systems and procedures are of the highest standard and that improvements have been made across the country to reduce the risk of any similar incidents of this nature in future.”
