I am an Associate Solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in our Bristol office.
I handle a variety of claims including delay in diagnosis of cancer, amputations, spinal injuries, gynaecological injuries, and fatal claims. I also work closely with Julie Lewis, the senior partner in the team, assisting her with cerebral palsy claims and other maximum severity injuries to children arising during childbirth and in the neonatal period.
Bringing a claim can be a very daunting experience – I strive to ensure that my clients are reassured and comfortable when sharing their experiences with me so we can work together to achieve a positive outcome. I also work closely with charities and other teams within Irwin Mitchell to ensure individuals have support and guidance outside the claim process.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I was attracted to the law by the complex issues involved and have always enjoyed meeting people from all walks of life.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
The opportunity to help those who have suffered an incredibly stressful experience and make a difference to their lives is particularly fulfilling. Our clients have often been let down by a professional and I find it extremely rewarding to help those people find the answers they have been searching for. The compensation which we are fighting for is incredibly valuable to clients who require future treatment, care or rehabilitation. Every client is different, and each wants something different out of the process.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I am a lifelong cricket and rugby fan, and so love spending a weekend pitch side.

"After researching which company I would instruct to represent me in my Medical Negligence case I finally settled on Irwin Mitchell and I'm very glad I did. Elise Burvill was the solicitor assigned to my case and from our very first conversation to settlement of my case she was very professional and efficient but also very understanding and empathetic of my issues.
Emails and phone calls were always answered promptly and she always made time to discuss my concerns or answer any questions.

I can’t speak highly enough of the Irwin Mitchell team and their total professionalism." - Client
