I have significant experience in dealing with catastrophic personal injury claims. The majority of my cases involve acquired brain injury claims arising from serious road traffic accidents, accidents at work, and public liability claims. I have a number of cases involving children and young adults and specialise in their particular needs resulting from catastrophic injury.
What inspired you to get into law?
It's an interesting job with the ultimate aim of helping people.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I'm passionate about the work I do and the clients I work with. It's extremely rewarding to see how a case can progress, and how the compensation we recover can help change clients lives.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I enjoy working for a firm that's constantly striving to help clients. It's not just about the claim, but offering services to our client’s way beyond the litigation. I work in a great team, which makes coming into the office every day even more enjoyable.
What do you do away from the office?
When not working, my three young children keep me very busy. I'm in a book club, or rather a food and wine club where we pretend to talk about a book! I enjoy holidays and pretend to be a keen 10k runner.
"Gina Heather from Manchester is so professional – nothing is too much trouble." – Mark Howson, 5* Trustpilot review
"Gina / Melanie. You have been a rock throughout the past 3 years. You have been supporting, professional and most importantly human. You work so hard and we so appreciate that. We were in a very dark space when we met and you have helped us out of that. No words can say how much we appreciate you all. But massive hugs and kisses always... Manolo in particular would like to say how grateful he is for all your help and support. You have been kind knowledgeable and have always kept us informed and reassured. We couldn't have got through the last 3 years without you both. Absolutely excellent company. Highly recommend" - 5* Trustpilot review
