I’m a Solicitor in the medical negligence team at Irwin Mitchell. I qualified as a Solicitor in March 2020.
I specialise in representing people injured as a result of medical negligence by hospitals, healthcare providers or GPs. I also represent families with fatal claims and inquests.
I manage my own caseload and I’m particularly interested in: fatal claims, orthopaedic claims, cardiac claims and surgical claims. I’m also interested in most other areas of medical negligence to develop my experience. I assist other members of the team with their high value case load, including birth injuries.
I pride myself in my client care skills and I’m passionate about my work. I enjoy helping my clients get the best result for their claim and to help improve their quality of life following their injury.
What inspired you to get into law?
I became interested in Law at university. I did a Business degree that crossed over into business related law, such as intellectual property and marketing law. I found law to be challenging but interesting as it wasn’t just black and white, it involved argument, reasoning and justification.
I went to Law School after university. While studying, I found my passion for using my knowledge and skills to directly help people. I also have a strong interest in medicine and anatomy. Medical negligence combined both of these passions so that I could directly help individuals get the outcome they deserved while helping improve their quality of life.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I enjoy working with my clients and inspirational people to help improve their lives. Many of our clients have suffered life changing injuries or lost their loved ones, working with such strong people collaboratively is very rewarding.
What do you do away from the office?
I love travelling and visiting new places, either close to home or across the other side of the world. I also like spending time with my friends and family and I also love cooking!
