I am an Associate Solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in Birmingham, and I live in Coventry. I trained with one of the largest law firms in the world and qualified as a solicitor in 2006.
I represent clients in a wide variety of areas, including:
- Stillbirths and neonatal deaths
- Catastrophic injuries
- Brain injuries
- Orthopaedic and spinal injuries
- Gynaecological and obstetric issues
- Urological issues
I'm privileged to be the Instructing Solicitor for the family of Margaret Keane, in their appeal to have an Irish only inscription on their mother’s gravestone in Coventry.
In 2019, I won the Irwin Mitchell Community Spirit Award for the work I do for local charities and the community. The Birmingham Law Society also shortlisted me for a Pro Bono Award at the 2019 Legal Awards, for providing free legal advice clinics at the Birmingham Irish Association.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I've 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 in Coventry 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 became a lawyer to help people. It is so rewarding being able to help clients move on with their lives and 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.
In particular, I’m very proud of our values - this is a firm where diversity and inclusion are cherished.
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, Coventry City FC, or my passion for history. I’m also learning to speak Irish in honour of my Irish roots.
I'm proud to be on the Board of Trustees of the Birmingham Irish Association. I am passionate about access to justice and I have managed free legal advice clinics at the Birmingham Irish Association since 2017.
I joined the committee of the West Midlands Irish Business Group in 2020.
Caroline is dedicated to helping those who need advice and support.

“Caroline Brogan has been dealing with my case and I have been impressed with the way she has kept me informed at all stages of the process. I felt that Caroline was on my side and was doing her very best for me and I had complete confidence in her from the first time I met her at the Birmingham office. It could have been quite intimidating but Caroline put me at ease and was friendly but professional and told me that my case had merit which put my mind at ease. I would happily recommend Irwin Mitchell to anybody who needs representation.” - 5* Trustpilot review
