I'm a solicitor working in the medical negligence team.
I joined Irwin Mitchell in January 2022, after working at a regional welsh law firm. I qualified as a solicitor in September 2020 and worked as a paralegal prior to commencing my training contract.
I work on a variety of medical negligence cases and enjoy building relationships with my clients. I support clients through a difficult period and enjoy obtaining a successful outcome for them.
What inspired you to get into law?
I enjoyed undertaking legal work experience at school. A variety of work placements later confirmed that law was the career for me. I love learning and frequent changes and various challenges keep me on my toes.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Often, clients come to us after they have been through an extremely traumatic time. I enjoy working on their behalf to obtain successful outcomes which will change their lives.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I work with the best. My colleagues are leaders in what they do and have excellent knowledge of the law. Irwin Mitchell provides an exceptional level of service to clients with a variety of different types of support to assist clients with rebuilding their lives.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy reading and am always sharing book recommendations, even when they haven’t been requested! I love running and have completed several half marathons.
"Abigail Salter took over my case and straight away I felt comfortable with her. She was kind, compassionate and helpful during a very, very hard time. Will definitely recommend Irwin Mitchell and if they are lucky enough to deal with Abigail Salter, they will understand my review. The whole team I dealt with were amazing." - 5* Trustpilot review
"I am 83 and have been involved in a lengthy case of medical misdiagnosis leading to serious problems for me in terms of mobility, which was fought against by the hospital concerned despite the evidence being unassailable. Irwin Mitchell provided firstly Eleri Davies and then when she was due for childbirth, Abigail Salter. In my time I reached the board of major corporations, so I have great experience of legal matters and practitioners both in our legal department and in legal battles. Abigail and Eleri are at the very highest level.
"It is impossible for me to praise these two solicitors too highly for their determination, professionalism, refusal to give in, and their empathetic client relationship. I give them both a score in all these areas of 200%. The hospital eventually, under their excellent handling, gave in and settled out of court." - 5* Trustpilot review
"I have been supported by the staff of Irwin Mitchell, mainly Abigail Salter, since January 2019. They have been so helpful right from the beginning and informative throughout. No question has been left unanswered (there have been many) and Abigail has been excellent in relaying complex legal information and processes in a much simpler way so that I have understood from the get-go. She has listened to what I have wanted throughout, giving me her professional opinion, but always leaving the final decision to me. Abigail has been empathetic with my situation throughout also understanding I have a young family so phone calls etc have to revolve around them. An overall fantastic service despite unfortunate circumstances." - 5* Trustpilot review
"I was in two minds to put in for my medical negligence but I'm so glad I did. I cannot fault Abigail salter and her team enough for what they have done for me. Not only was the outcome better than I ever imagined but they also got me closure and that is something I thought I wouldn't get. I cannot thank you Abigail and your team enough. I highly recommend you have nothing to lose but so much to gain. I'm so thankful to you all. " - 5* Trustpilot review
"I cannot thank you all enough for everything. Honestly, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. I really couldn’t have picked better caring people to have whilst going through all of this.
"It’s so nice to feel like we can move forward. You are truly amazing and I’m forever grateful to you for everything you have done." - Ms H, client
