I am a solicitor in the Serious Injury department of Irwin Mitchell's Manchester office, having joined the firm as a trainee in 2008, initially in our Leeds and Sheffield offices. I moved to the Manchester office in 2009 and have never looked back!
I deal with a variety of cases involving brain, spinal and complex/multiple orthopaedic injuries.
It's important that lawyers working in this field do not lose sight of the massive impact that traumatic accidents can have on the lives of clients and their families, and I'm proud to work with a team of brilliant and yet empathetic lawyers who work hard to facilitate rehabilitation and maximise compensation recovery, exceeding our clients' expectations.
I am also involved with Headway Lancaster and Morecambe Bay, which provides support in the community for people with brain injuries, their friends and carers. Our members are really inspiring and it's a privilege to work alongside them.
I've wanted to be a lawyer for as long as I can remember. Judging by the grey hairs, that's a long time!
I enjoy helping people and seeing how my hard work can make a difference to someone's life. The nature of some of my clients' injuries means that I often have to discuss very personal issues with clients and their families, which are often embarrassing for them, and I pride myself in being able to build up a rapport and trust from an early stage to support them through the process.
We're actually a really nice bunch of people who happen to be legal experts.
I enjoy going to cinema and theatre and using my other half as a guinea pig for new recipes. I'm also trying to hone my photography skills, although I won't be giving David Bailey a run for his money just yet!
“This is a truly shocking incident in which our client has suffered very serious injuries as a result of a collision which simply should never have happened.
“The crash has gone on to have a major effect on her life over the past year, leaving her reliant on friends and family for support and requiring long-term treatment for her recovery and rehabilitation.
“It is so important to get the message out there about road safety. With the clocks having recently gone back, and with the longer nights, it is crucial drivers pay extra attention when on the road to ensure the safety of themselves, and other road users.”
“Robert’s death was heartbreaking, tragic and unnecessary and highlights the devastating consequences of drink-driving.
“At Irwin Mitchell, we see on a daily basis the impact that road collisions have on families and it is crucial that other drivers take note of this case and the consequences of dangerous driving and speeding, and, particularly in the build-up to the festive season, that they don’t drink and drive so as to reduce the risk of similar tragedies in future.
“We also want to raise the public’s awareness that they can and should contact the police if they witness any incidents of dangerous driving.
“That is why we are proud to support Brake’s Road Safety Week, in the hope that another family will not have to suffer like Andrea and her family have.”
