I am a solicitor within the Medical Negligence department in the Manchester office.
I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2011 having completed a law degree. I then went on to complete my Legal Practice Course before joining the firm in 2012.
I run my own caseload, dealing with a variety of different claims, representing both patients and their families who have been subject to medical negligence.
I have always enjoyed a challenge, and from a young age wanted to help other people who find themselves in situations beyond their control.
I have a keen interest not only in the legal side of my role, but also the medical aspect as it is always evolving.
Although I often meet clients in sad or distressing circumstances, I am driven by being able to help them through a very difficult time. Typically, this is by securing compensation for them - even though it doesn't change what they have been through, it can often help them move on with their lives. During the process, I can also help clients get answers to questions that have been left unanswered for a long time.
I really enjoy the friendly atmosphere amongst everyone working at Irwin Mitchell. It is great to work amongst like-minded individuals who all want the very best for their clients.
Away from the office I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy playing netball and hockey and occasionally manage a trip to the gym.
"I was spurred on and fully supported above and beyond by my solicitor Alexandra Barrie. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone who is uncertain about whether they have the confidence to pursue their claim as without her help I don't believe I would of seen things through." - Sarah Rouski, client
"Thank you very much for all your help, advice, understanding and patience…the fact that you give clients hope is what is important…I will finish with once more saying thousands of thank yous, keep up the good work and thank you for enabling me to get treatment."
"You have given my family peace of mind that they have explored every avenue - that is priceless given what they have been through so it is a job very well done and I can't thank you enough."
“I am so glad that Alex Barrie was put in charge of my medical negligence case. Alex has always shown honesty and respect. She has always listened to any concerns and always answered any questions that I had. Alex is very professional and has shown nothing but compassion. She has been a pleasure to deal with.”
“Irwin Mitchell has a good relationship with LOIS and the team was happy to help Julie and all at LOIS, however we could, with this year’s Sports Festival.
“I was fortunate enough to be able to volunteer at the Sports Festival, and it was a really enjoyable event. The sun was beaming down and it was great to see so many people participating, whether it was in a sport they know or whether they were trying out a new one.
“At Irwin Mitchell, we have always been committed to backing important local causes and Don’t Quit, Do It has given us a great chance to put a spotlight on some of the great young sporting talent emerging across the UK.
“We are delighted to lend LOIS this support, as it perfectly embodies the idea of Don’t Quit, Do It, and the huge benefits that sport can provide, and I look forward to working with Julie on many more fun projects in the future.”
“Our clients have been through an horrendous time over the past few years, often leaving them angry, frustrated and in some distress. Hearing evidence presented at the trial has been extremely difficult for them to deal with.
“They are relieved that the jury has delivered a guilty verdict in relation to their cases as it gives them some closure on what happened at Stepping Hill after years of fighting for answers. However, it is now imperative that the NHS Trust moves quickly to reassure those affected that its systems and procedures are of the highest standard and that improvements have been made across the country to reduce the risk of any similar incidents of this nature in future.”
