I am an Associate Solicitor in the Serious Injury department of the Leeds office. I specialise in helping people who have suffered brain and/or spinal injuries, often as a result of a road accident or an accident at work.
Many of our clients have also suffered severe orthopaedic and/or psychological injuries. We help our clients to claim compensation and, importantly, gain access to appropriate rehabilitation.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
The most rewarding aspect of my role is assisting people who have suffered life-changing injuries and having the opportunity to make a difference for them and their families in a sector which really matters. It is very rewarding to help people get the care, therapy, accommodation, and transport that they need as a result of an injury which was caused by someone else.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
Irwin Mitchell takes pride in the quality of its work and has lawyers with genuine expertise in their specialist areas. It is an excellent environment in which to learn from some of the best lawyers in their field.
We adopt a team approach and always help each other out, making for a good work environment, as well as excellent results for clients. I get along well with my colleagues, who are a fun and caring bunch.
Securing the best possible outcome for the client is the primary objective. In personal injury cases, there is a rehabilitation-focused approach aimed at ensuring the best possible recovery for the client from their injuries.
At Irwin Mitchell, we are not afraid of taking on difficult cases and often secure excellent results for clients who have cases which are challenging in relation to liability.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
Away from the office, I enjoy playing amateur league football (11 a side and 5 a side), playing the guitar, singing in an amateur choir, yoga, eating out with my wife, socialising with friends, and holidays.
