I'm a Partner in the Military team, with over 20 years experience of acting for clients with serious personal injuries. I have significant experience in dealing with applications under both the Criminal Injuries Compensation scheme, but more particularly the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme. I have a special interest in representing members of the Armed Forces and a determination to ensure that each and every soldier secures the settlement to which they are entitled under the AFCS.
What inspired you to get into law?
Growing up in a family of lawyers I was aware that the right representation could change lives and the chance to do that was never an opportunity that I was going to miss.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
The satisfaction of fighting for an individual, and succeeding against a system that can be overwhelming at a time that is often difficult enough, relieving the stress of a situation and achieving the correct outcome sometimes against the odds.
What do you like to do away from the office?
I take piano lessons, sing in a choir and enjoy dancing lessons. I am a keen amateur baker and have won competitions. I'm also a trained volunteer crisis helpline counsellor at NSPCC Childline.

The case from start to finish has been very lengthy however the the best outcome possible for myself was the end result so the wait was more than worth it. The knowledge held within the teams is great and the support which follows is tremendous. I know with my experience dealing with Amanda and watching the obstacles she had to get over which she done in every occasion I would 100% recommend this firm to anyone.

"It goes without saying that Amanda and her team really know their stuff. Its been a long battle, but without Amanda and her team at Irwin Mitchell, I would not have got the results that I got. From the first time speaking to Amanda, I was made to feel at ease and was able to tell her things that I had been holding back for many years. I am so happy to have had Irwin Mitchell represent me as I feel Amanda and the team really had my best interests at heart. Not once did anyone on the team doubt me and I will always be truly grateful for the support that I have received." - 5* Trustpilot review
