I am a solicitor in the medical negligence team at Irwin Mitchell's Bristol office. I handle a variety of claims including delay in diagnosis of cancer, pregnancy and gynaecological injuries and fatal claims. I work closely with Julie Lewis, the partner in the team assisting her with cerebral palsy claims and delay in diagnosis of brain haemorrhages.
Bringing a claim can be a very daunting experience and I am also passionate about supporting local charities that can assist my clients and provide them with support and guidance outside the claim process. I work closely with Flamingo Chicks, an inclusive dance school, Meningitis Now and MacMillan Cancer Support and Irwin Mitchell’s Court of Protection and Public Law teams to ensure that my clients receive all the support and services they need to help them move forwards with their lives.
What inspired you to get into law?
From a young age I was always interested in law which started after I did some work experience in a local solicitors firm specialising in family law. I really enjoyed my week at the firm and I decided I wanted to study law at University.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I really enjoy the challenge that comes with my job and the rewarding nature of the work I do. At University I quickly realised that I wanted to focus on personal legal services because I care about helping people and making a difference to their lives.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy running and although I have run a half marathon in the past, so far one was enough! I also enjoy music and play the piano and the harp.
"May I take this opportunity to personally thank you for the help and support that you have provided throughout this whole process. Your professionalism, friendliness and support have made this process a lot easier than it could have been. Thank you." - Former client
"My lawyer was Eleri Davies, she worked very hard for me from day one, even though I was stuck overseas for the majority of the claim. All through the case we were in contact and I was always kept in the loop with what was happening in my medical negligence case. It was a difficult time but with Eleri’s support we managed to win and come out the other side. Thank you so much” - Helen, former client
