Nicola McCartney



I am a solicitor in the complex personal injuries team in Irwin Mitchell's Glasgow office.  I specialise in asbestos-related diseases and industrial disease related claims; I also represent families who have lost loved ones in fatal incidents and accidents at work. 

My job is to investigate my client's cases and negotiate fair and justified settlements to compensate them for their pain and suffering or for the loss of a loved one.  I understand that the legal processes can be daunting for people, particularly at this difficult time in their lives.  I believe it's crucial that the people I'm representing wholly understand each step of the process; that they are listened to and engaged with throughout the case. 

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

The legal system can be a complex and intimidating arena for people to find themselves in, especially when their lives have been changed by an incident or disease that they have no control over. I became a solicitor to help and guide people through this difficult system to ensure they get the justice they deserve. 

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

The most rewarding part of my work is when I am able to make a practical, tangible difference to people's lives: people who have suffered and have come to us for help in mending that suffering.  It is also satisfying to see clients go from being unaware of the necessary elements of their case to having an understanding of it, and for us thereafter to drive the case forwards together as a team.  

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Irwin Mitchell is a principled firm operating with integrity and clear values.  I am proud to contribute to our sterling reputation of top class client care. We not only work to secure compensation and justice, but also take rehabilitation and recovery very seriously; we're on hand to help with support and financial advice when required. 

I work with a very optimistic, supportive and close knit team who work together to get the right results for our clients.  Irwin Mitchell has a forward thinking, imaginative and very positive environment.   

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

When I am away from the office, I love to travel abroad and explore the world. I also love exploring closer to home across Scotland's beautiful scenery with my young Labrador in tow.  It is always great to spend time with family and friends with some Thai food and some good old fashioned British comedy.
