Rebecca Smith



I joined Irwin Mitchell's Aviation department in January 2014. I have worked exclusively in the field of personal injury claims for over 25 years, acting on behalf of seriously injured people in high value and complex claims. I am experienced in head and spinal injuries, including fatal claims.

My particular area of expertise has been in acting on behalf of those having sustained serious brain and other serious injury, where there is more often than not a desperate need to ensure early rehabilitation and interim payments. Securing the right evidence is key to the success of any claim.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

From a very young age, I always knew I wanted to be a lawyer. Achieving justice has been my driving force - especially in the face of adversity. I have spent my whole working life representing those who have needed a voice.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role? 

Without doubt, the most rewarding aspect is the knowledge that you have done your best to achieve justice for those who really need it and ensured the best possible financial outcome to enable those affected by tragedy to move towards a positive future 

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

The firm has a modern approach in its outlook. It really is all about the client. Irwin Mitchell is the leading claimant aviation firm in Europe with a reputation in international litigation.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

When time allows, I enjoy active sports such as skiing and waterskiing. Have even managed to keep up with my teenage son and learned to wakeboard!
