I am a Senior Associate Solicitor specialising in claims on behalf of people who have been affected by asbestos related illnesses, particularly assisting sufferers of, and the families of those affected by, the asbestos related cancer, mesothelioma.
I have achieved a number of noteworthy settlements in cases where there has been limited exposure to asbestos, including cases brought on behalf of a number of prison officers. I have obtained substantial compensation payments for clients affected by asbestos related illnesses.
I am a good listener and I do my upmost to put my clients at ease in what can, without the appropriate support, seem a bewildering process.
I am a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
I wanted to become a solicitor to help people, who through no fault of their own, have been injured or developed illnesses.
I gain a lot of satisfaction from helping people recover compensation that will help them obtain the care and assistance they need to cope with their injuries/illnesses and for those clients who are terminally ill, it enables them to provide for their families into the future.
Irwin Mitchell cares about people, both their clients for whom they are constantly striving to provide the highest levels of service and also the staff who work for the firm.
Away from the office I enjoy being involved in musical theatre and have been a member of a local group, putting on a large number of productions at a local theatre, for many years.
“Marilyn’s family are understandably devastated by their loss and are keen to make sense of how she came to develop an asbestos-related illness.
“Before she passed away, she made a statement on her employment history which included her belief that the Joseph Ash Ltd building probably contained asbestos. As part of our ongoing investigations, we are keen to learn more about this and would be hugely grateful to anyone who could provide details regarding it.
“Any information could make a big different to our efforts to get her family the justice they deserve.”
“Mesothelioma is a terrible illness for which there is sadly no cure. There is known to be a great deal of asbestos in municipal buildings which a high number of people have likely been exposed to.
“Anyone who worked on the former Wood Green College site from the 1970s onwards is asked to please get in touch with any information they have, as this could really help us with the investigation and provide Maureen’s family with the answers they deserve.”
“Mesothelioma is an extremely aggressive, and sadly, incurable, form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos dust and fibres – something which leads to the death of more than 2,500 people in the UK every year.
“We are investigating Frank’s exposure during his time at West Midlands Police and hope that those who worked alongside him will come forward with any information they have about the presence of asbestos and what measures were in place to protect officers and staff from exposure to the deadly dust and fibres.
“We hope to help Frank’s family understand how and where he was exposed to asbestos as they continue to seek answers following his sudden death just mere months after his diagnosis.”
“Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related disease for which there is sadly no cure.
“Companies have been well aware of the risks associated with exposing staff to asbestos since before the 1950s so there is no excuse for workers not to have been properly protected.
“Any former employees who worked at Danny Lynch Builders, Coventry City Council or Courtaulds Engineering throughout the 1960s and early 1970s should get in touch as any information, no matter how small, could help us with our investigation and give Frank’s family the answers they deserve.”
