I qualified as a solicitor in 2011 have over 7 years’ experience in medical negligence claims. As part of Alison Eddy’s specialist team, I deal with complex and high-value medical negligence claims.

I represent claimants with a range of injuries but have particular experience in claims for orthopaedic injuries and amputations, neurological injuries (including brain and spinal injuries), and fatal accidents (including inquest representation).

I'm dedicated to giving my clients quality advice and first class results.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I have always wanted to pursue a career involving helping people and making a difference. When I began my career I very quickly became drawn towards medical negligence. I could see that there was scope to work with the law at the same time as working with ‘real’ people and emotive issues.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Most of my clients have already been through a very negative and upsetting experience. Ultimately I aim to achieve outstanding results for my clients so that they can move forward with their lives.

I ensure that my clients are supported, informed and assured throughout the litigation process. I know that bringing a claim can be an extremely difficult experience and my priority is always to make that journey as smooth as possible, whilst achieving the very best results for my clients.

I absolutely pride myself on my client care and approaching each individual case with compassion and professionalism - I feel rewarded when my clients tell me that I have delivered that.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I am very proud to be part of a firm that offers an exceptional service to our clients. It is a pleasure to work not only with experts within the medical negligence team, but also the specialists across the firm dealing with other aspects of medical negligence claims such as probate, public law, The Court of Protection and asset management.

I believe it is our overall team approach that makes the difference to our clients and ensures a quality experience.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I enjoy spending my spare time relaxing with my husband and daughter. I also have a love for singing, theatre, and good food and drink.


"During the 4 years it took for my claim to be settled Lizzie was supportive, informative and extremely professional. She answered any questions I had throughout. And always explained things in a way that I could fully understand what was going on every step of the way.

"I could not have got closure from my upsetting hospital experience without the help and support of Lizzie and I thank Irwin Mitchell for appointing her to my case.” - Client

    This is a tragic case that has left a family devastated by the loss of a loving husband, father and grandfather. “They would like to take this opportunity to thank the Coroner for taking the time to investigate the reasons for their loss and are grateful to have received answers to the many questions they had about the events leading to Bob’s death. “Events such as these should not happen under any circumstances and we whilst we appreciate the Trust taking action and confirming lessons have been learnt, we expect these lessons to have been shared transparently throughout the NHS. This open approach is the only way to protect the safety of patients and prevent the same tragedy from happening again.”
