What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I've always been passionate about helping people. Including, people who've been injured or become unwell, as a result of an accident or incident but particularly as a result of their working life. I know that with our clients, it’s not always about the money, seeking justice is paramount to them. Helping my clients to seek justice is paramount to me.

"We approached Irwin Mitchell for my Nan, where there was a case to be fought regarding her illness. Emma Guy who was assigned has been absolutely amazing throughout the whole process. Although my Nan unfortunately passed away half way through, Emma continued to fight my nans case and get the justice she deserved. Emma promptly responded to our queries and kept us up to date all the way through.
"We finally got justice for my Nan, and the hard work that Emma and her team did paid off, we can’t thank Emma and the team enough for their professionalism, kindness and support throughout. Just thankyou for everything Emma & team" - 5* Trustpilot review
"We were recommended to use this firm because they have a good track record for mesothelioma claims (asbestos exposure). Our case was handled by Emma Guy. She was tenacious and thorough and although the employer was reluctant to admit liability Emma engaged experts and assembled all of the evidence needed to get a successful outcome. She explained everything to us as lay people and we felt cared for and couldn’t have been better represented as a family." - 5* Trustpilot review
"Just worked with Emma Guy & her team in Irwin Mitchell after the tragic passing of my father Sean due to mesothelioma. I found Emma to be empathetic & very professional to work with throughout a difficult process and a heart-breaking time. Most importantly, Emma was effective in getting justice for my father in her dealings with a leading asbestos company. Mesothelioma is a cruel and unforgiving disease & is actually quite difficult to diagnose / prove. I always felt that the Irwin Mitchell team believed our case which is crucial. I would not hesitate in recommending Emma and her team for anyone dealing with mesothelioma in their family. Thank you Emma & team." - 5* Trustpilot review

"From the start Emma Guy at Irwin Mitchell has been very professional and efficient. I’ve always felt very well informed of the process.

"Irwin Mitchell were exemplary in the execution of my husband’s claim. I was kept in the loop every step of the way and their professionalism and compassion was way beyond what I expected. My sincere thanks goes to all concerned." - Susan, Client
"Emma was fantastic, she answered all my call and questions efficiently, nothing was to much trouble for her! I'd highly recommend Irwin Mitchell. Thank you to Emma and Ian for everything they’ve done." - Debbie, Client
"The service and compassion my family received from Emma at Irwin Mitchell was outstanding. Emma visited my Dad when he was diagnosed with Mesothelioma (asbestos related lung cancer) and as a family we instructed Irwin Mitchell to pursue a claim. Dad passed away before the claim was settled but it has helped secure Mum’s income going forward after his untimely death (Dad’s pension ended when he died). I would recommend Emma Guy and Irwin Mitchell whole-heartedly." - Alison, Client
"My claim for industrial injury against the Government due to asbestos exposure was fought with Barristers, Doctors and very skilled employees at Irwin Mitchell. Due to the length of time ago it was very hard to research this claim. But they spoke to ex employees who were all getting on in years and with much effort managed to secure a successful outcome." - John, Client
"My brothers and our Mum wish to thank Ian Bailey, Emma Guy and the team for all the hard work carried out in the successful claim for our late father who became ill and past away with this terrible cancer. Emma in particular is very personable, always responded to our questions and kept us updated.
Even though the team had numerous cases being dealt with, our Mum felt she was treated like a human being with Irwin Mitchell unlike the defendants insurance company! We would thoroughly recommend Emma, Ian and team." - Angela, Client
