What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I have always been intolerant of injustice and so a career in law was always the only option for me. I started off on the student council at my local secondary school and did lots of voluntary work at a local solicitors’ firm when I was a teenager. Now I’m proud to specialise in medical law and patient rights at one of the UK’s top law firms.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I enjoy achieving settlement packages for my clients that enable them to move on with their lives after a traumatic experience. It’s also great to get some answers for clients relating to what has happened to them or a loved one. I'm passionate about my work and I feel privileged to work with clients at what can be the most difficult time in their lives: I'm frequently inspired by their bravery.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
I’m proud to work with some of the most respected, successful and dedicated lawyers in the country who provide a compassionate and professional service.
Lawyers at Irwin Mitchell can quickly access rehabilitation and support services for our clients, which is something that sets us apart from other law firms.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
Family time is really precious and we love spending time together on days out, particularly if they incorporate my little boy’s obsession with dinosaurs or my passion for history. If there’s any time left after I’ve got the ironing pile down then I love to read - I’m also learning to speak some Irish in honour of my Irish roots.
