Sally Murphy



I joined Irwin Mitchell in August 2013, when I commenced my training contract in the Manchester Office. I undertook seats in Serious Injury, Court of Protection and Clinical Negligence and I qualified as a Solicitor in to the Court of Protection Department in September 2015.

I now have over two years experience in the Court of Protection Department at Irwin Mitchell. On a daily basis, I act on behalf of clients who have been assessed as lacking the mental capacity to manage their own property and financial affairs and have a Deputy appointed by the Court of Protection. I am regularly involved in making applications to Court for the appointment of a professional or lay deputy, and subsequently in assisting with the delivery of Irwin Mitchell’s professional deputyship service. I engage in making ‘best interests’ decisions on behalf of clients, with the involvement of their families, and have a professional but compassionate input in to the management of damages awards and property and affairs.

I am also experienced in operating Professional Trusts for clients who have capacity to manage their affairs, but seek some professional guidance and support.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Outside of work, I take part in several charitable initiatives, raising money for charities such as the Prince’s Trust and assisting primary school children with their reading skills. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family and I regularly attend the gym.
