I am a solicitor specialising in both serious injury litigation and child abuse law. I am an APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) accredited Senior Litigator and a member of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers.
I deal with cases involving life changing injuries and represent people who've suffered traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries and complex orthopaedic injuries, including amputations. I also act for bereaved families who have lost family members in accidents.
I represent victims of child abuse in cases against both individual abusers and institutions including schools, the church and local authorities.
"Has a terrific eye for detail and prepares her cases meticulously, achieving outstanding results for her clients." - Legal 500, 2023
"After a two year case, I've had an incredible outcome, fortunate enough to have Irwin Mitchell and in particular Anna Pask working hard on it, I'm so grateful to them for their hard work, and support throughout. Although I found it emotionally draining at times, I knew for sure I was in good hands and eventually the outcome would be worth it. Anna was professional, and also very understanding.
She kept me updated on every step and I felt that she always explained things I wasn't clear on. I am so grateful to Irwin Mitchell and Anna for everything they have done to get the results, and for always having compassion too. My case was a complex one and they did everything they could to get a good result, it paid off! Thank you so much. I couldn't recommend them enough." - 5* Trustpilot review
"Anna Pask of Irwin Mitchell handled my case superbly. Her professional advice was spot on. Response times were very good and I feel the matter was handled with an urgency that was most gratifying. This was not an easy subject for me to discuss and Ms Pask's compassion and empathy when first giving my statement was a comfort. I would have no hesitation in recommending both her and Irwin Mitchell to any other persons needing her expertise." - 5* Trustpilot review

What inspired you to get into law?
I actually decided at a very young age that I wanted to become a lawyer and I am grateful that I later chose to specialise in an area of law that enables me to work with such a broad and diverse range of clients. And working at Irwin Mitchell means I get to work with – and learn from – some of the most dedicated and pioneering lawyers in the country.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Knowing that I can make a real difference to people’s lives. Nobody chooses to be injured and to be involved in litigation and I realise how daunting a process it can be. However, when you achieve a fantastic settlement for a client and you are able to put the right rehabilitation and support in place to enable them to rebuild their life, it is extremely rewarding to see.
