Georgina Houston

Senior Associate Solicitor


I am a solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in Sheffield.

I have acted on behalf of clients in cases involving delayed diagnosis of different types of cancer, injuries caused to children and mothers at birth (including cerebral palsy and Erb's Palsy), errors made during surgery, cases involving amputation, and cases resulting in fatality.

I have also represented clients through the Inquest process.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I liked the idea of a career that combines helping people through a difficult time in their lives with the intellectual challenge of analysing evidence and navigating an ever evolving legal system.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Achieving the best outcomes for my clients. Sometimes this means obtaining the maximum amount of compensation to enable a client access to rehabilitation, other times it simply means getting some answers or perhaps an apology or reassurance that medical mistakes won't be repeated.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Working with a fantastic team of innovative and experienced lawyers.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I enjoy running, yoga, cycling in the Peak District and spending as much time as I can on the North Wales coast with my husband and daughter.
