Jake Alston



I qualified as a solicitor in 2000 and work within the specialist Ministry Of Defence (MOD) team. I represent serving and ex-service personnel who have been injured in the course of their duties due to negligence of the MOD.

I deal primarily with non-freezing cold injury cases, but also represent soldiers with various orthopaedic injuries. In most cases, these injuries have led to a medical discharge and compensation can be substantial where there is a loss of service career. Unfortunately, many are discharged due to these injuries and lose their careers.

My aim is to support my clients through the stages of the litigation process and to achieve the best possible financial outcome for them.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

The intellectual challenges combined with the ability to make a difference for somebody injured through no fault of their own.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Helping to put people’s life back on track and in as good a position as possible after a major change in their lives.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I am proud to be part of a team who can offer an exceptional service to their clients through expertise and with wide-ranging resources where necessary.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I am usually chasing my daughters. They keep me young, or so I like to think.
