I specialise in personal injury law and work in the Serious Injury team, representing people who have sustained life changing injuries in accidents. I act for people who have sustained the most catastrophic injuries including severe brain and spinal cord injuries and amputations. My primary goal for each of my clients is to get them the support and rehabilitation they need to return, as far as possible, to the life they had before the accident.
I also undertake a lot of fatal accident work, supporting the families of those who have lost their lives through accidents to find answers and security for their futures. I have always enjoyed working with people and I love meeting my clients, getting to know them and helping them through what is an extremely emotional and stressful time. The most rewarding aspect of my job is helping to ensure the needs of my clients are met at the time when they need it most.
What inspired you to get into law?
Having done some work experience in a law firm when I was 16, I felt a real connection to the law and to what lawyers can do to help other people.

"We wouldn't have coped without the support of James [Davies] and Deborah. They were both so caring and patient and always went the extra mile. They gave extra time to my son who struggles with processing information since his accident. I would recommend them without a doubt: they brought our very complex case to court and got justice for my boy. Amazing team of people. Forever grateful." – Client
"I contacted IM as I had heard good things about the company. I was not disappointed. They dealt with my husbands claim with professionalism, empathy and firmness where needed. They always contacted either my husband or myself back. If we didn't understand anything they patiently put it in simpler terms. It was a complex case and was dealt with brilliantly by Deborah Rose, also thanks to Georgie, James and Vince. I would highly recommend them, I dealt with the Bristol office." -5* Trustpilot review

"Since the beginning of the case, Irwin Mitchell have aided me in getting my wife back to as normal a life as possible. The support I received and more importantly my wife, has been exceptional. The professionalism, courtesy, drive and ambition to get the results which were achieved were always with my wife and her needs, concerns and feelings put at the forefront of the case. Happily it was a positive outcome for the case, we were informed throughout and the staff which supported Deborah Rose were amazing.
"The key to all of this was Deborah, genuinely feel that the relationship between all of us was professional in every manner but at the same time, the ability for Deborah to show empathy when times were testing for us, made it a lot easier to approach Deborah and her team. I hope I never need to come back, but if I EVER need assistance again, or if I could make a recommend, Irwin Mitchell have the highest recommend from me and my wife. Thank you Deborah Rose" - 5* Trustpilot review
