Justine Spencer



I have specialised in clinical negligence since qualifying as a solicitor and developed a particular interest in the area of high value, complex obstetric and neonatal neurological injury, including cerebral palsy, neonatal hypoglycaemia, meningitis and Group B Strep.

I am an Associate and Team Leader for the Southampton Medical Negligence team.

Justine Spencer is involved in cerebral palsy cases, and also has a niche in claims regarding neonatal hypoglycaemia. Legal professionals say her proficiency is boosted by a "very high intellectual ability" - Chambers & Partners

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I enjoy working with clients and their families and I never cease to be impressed by the strength and level of dedication and commitment given to my clients by family and friends in very difficult and demanding circumstances.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I enjoy working with the highly motivated and talented people at Irwin Mitchell in a very vibrant and friendly office.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

When not running around after my young daughter, I enjoy playing tennis and swimming (both badly), skiing (even more badly!), films, travel, a glass of good wine and sitting still for five minutes!
