I am a solicitor in our Personal Injury team in Birmingham, specialising in international and domestic illness claims. I have experience in cases involving outbreaks of illness, caused by pathogens such as Salmonella, Cryptosporidium, E. coli, Legionnaire’s Disease and norovirus.
I have been involved in cases relating to illness outbreaks on cruise vessels, in foreign countries, at weddings and after visiting restaurants or hotels in the UK.
What inspired you to get into law?
My biggest inspiration in pursuing a career in law is being in a position to help people at some of the most difficult stages of their lives. As a lawyer, I am able to provide my Clients with the support and guidance they need to help seek the compensation they deserve.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
The most rewarding aspect of my role is securing closure for people whose lives have been impacted by actions outside of their control. Being able to support people through these challenging times and then securing a positive outcome for them is very fulfilling.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I love working at Irwin Mitchell because we have a range of specialist lawyers, meaning we are able to provide a whole variety of services for our clients.
What do you do away from the office?
Away from the office I enjoy baking (banana bread and biscoff blondies are my personal favourites!) and exploring new places with my dog Luna.
