I am a solicitor on the Serious Injury team based in our Birmingham office. I specialise in brain injuries, multiple serious injuries, severe burns and complex fatal accidents.
I work alongside a team of five lawyers and our work regularly includes liaison with police and coronial law. We routinely secure damages in excess of £1m.
We’re extremely proud to be able to work with some truly inspirational clients. We work hard to provide the ‘expert hand, human touch’ service that our clients and their families need during their long rehabilitation process.
Many of my clients lack the capacity to manage their property and finances and litigation. We help them with this by working closely with our colleagues in our leading Court of Protection team.
I am an APIL accredited Litigator and member of the IM Early Adopter Programme. I am also a Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England certified Mental Health Champion in the Birmingham office.
I joined Irwin Mitchell in 2013 as a paralegal and finished my training in 2015. I qualified as a solicitor in 2017.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
Both my parents enjoyed long careers working for the NHS as Psychiatric Mental Health Nurses. Growing up, I witnessed how they dedicated their lives to caring for patients and their genuine commitment to improving the lives of others.
I knew that in pursuing my career in law, I always wanted to achieve the same end goal. I am incredibly passionate about supporting my clients following their life changing injury and/or loss and to providing proactive and sensitive support and advice throughout their claim.
“Following a serious motoring accident my wife and I were badly hurt and our insurance company instructed Irwin Mitchell to pursue our claim. Throughout the process Toni and Alice Hall acted with complete professionalism, but were patient and remained caring at all times. Suffice to say that Toni managed to secure a very good result to our individual claims. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending Irwin Mitchell.” – Former client
“I would like to say a huge thank you to Toni Knott, Alice Hall and Kate Hewson. After being involved in a serious accident they have been with us all the way through the process, they helped with everything along the way (house adaptations, car adaptations, interim payments). I don’t know how we would have made it through without them. I am more than happy with the settlement. I think I can honestly say that I am going to miss the care and support they have helped provide. Everybody involved has been very professional, helpful, trustworthy and friendly. I fully recommend Irwin Mitchell.” – Former client
“My wife was run over on a Zebra Crossing and ended up with a broken hip and life-changing injuries. Over a four and a half year period we have dealt with Toni Knott and Alice Hall from the Serious Injury Team at Irwin Mitchell. [I] can’t thank them enough for the support, advice and, in the end, the fabulous settlement received for my wife. Nothing was ever too much trouble for both Toni and Alice and they even came out to our house to save my wife the travel. I would have no hesitation in recommending Irwin Mitchell and especially Toni Knott and Alice Hall. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.” – Former client
