Jane Pyrah



I am a solicitor working in the Serious Injury team at Irwin Mitchell's Newcastle office. Since 2004 I have represented adults and children who have suffered serious and life changing injuries, in particular head injuries and spinal cord injuries.
I aim to secure interim payments for my clients at the earliest possible opportunity to provide payment for rehabilitation, support packages and accommodation.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I decided at quite an early age that I wanted to take up a career in Law, as I wanted to make a difference to people's lives. However, I enjoyed History so much at school that I decided to study a History degree at university instead of Law. I knew that there was an option to convert my History degree to Law and so that is what I did.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

It is very rewarding to be able to help my clients to improve the quality of their lives. For nearly 10 years I have worked as part of a team who are dedicated to their clients, are very passionate about securing the best outcome for their clients and who have a fantastic track record.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

We are lucky to have access to specialists in other areas of law such as Family Law, Public Law, Court of Protection and Employment Law who we can approach for advice and support for our clients.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Away from the office I enjoy spending time with my family and I spend a lot of time taking my very big dog for very long walks!
