I am a Senior Associate Solicitor specialising in claims for people with asbestos-related illnesses, particularly mesothelioma, and their families.
I've achieved a number of noteworthy settlements in cases involving limited exposure to asbestos, including cases for several prison officers. I have secured substantial compensation payments for clients affected by asbestos-related illnesses.
I am a good listener and I do my utmost to put my clients at ease in what can, without the appropriate support, seem a bewildering process.
I'm a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
What inspired you to get into law?
I wanted to become a solicitor to help people, who through no fault of their own, have been injured or developed illnesses. I wanted to help them achieve some measure of justice for what has happened to them and their families due to those injuries and illnesses.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I act for the most wonderful group of people, whose lives are touched by tragedy when they least expect it. It's incredibly rewarding to give them some comfort in knowing their loved ones will be provided for and that we will be seeking justice on their behalf. I get a lot of satisfaction from helping people to access the care and assistance they need and to ensure financial security for their families into the future.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I enjoy the way we all work together at Irwin Mitchell to provide the highest levels of service for our clients. We have a huge wealth of experience across the firm which allows us to fully support our clients not just in their claims, but also in their lives generally. Irwin Mitchell cares about people - both their clients and their staff.
What do you do away from the office?
I love spending time with my family. I enjoy visiting the theatre and singing. I perform each year in amateur musical theatre productions which is great fun but hard work.
"During the past 3 years there have been many hurdles to overcome in our complicated case. Hayley had worked steadfastly to achieve justice and a fair settlement on behalf of my husband, both with him until his untimely death and afterwards on his behalf with me. She has been totally professional, efficient and consistent, and reliable in every way - in addition caring and supportive during this very difficult time, and sensitive to our distress. My husband found, and I continue to find her pleasant, approachable and totally professional in all ways." - 5* Trustpilot review
"I would not hesitate to recommend the services of Hayley Hill and Jessica Tuffrey whose professional advice was invaluable. They were both excellent at keeping my family up-to-date with clear information, even during the difficult times of a pandemic. They showed sensitivity and approachability throughout the compensation claim process and I never felt that any queries were too much trouble for them.
They always answered any queries promptly and comprehensively. Hayley and Jess pursued the claim with speed and diligence. I am grateful to them both for their hard work in bringing the case to a successful conclusion and I would not hesitate to recommend them to others - in fact I have done so." - 5* Trustpilot review
"We approached Irwin Mitchell after the shock diagnosis of my dad’s mesothelioma. As a family, we had never heard of this debilitating disease and were completely overwhelmed by what we were going through. Hayley Hill, our solicitor, was extremely compassionate to our situation. She was informative every step of the way and we felt that she cared about us as a family. We are very grateful to Hayley Hill for all that she has done for us and certainly feel that she is an excellent solicitor. Thank you Hayley!" - 5* Trustpilot review
"I contacted Irwin Mitchell LLP, for a complicated case after my father fell ill for asbestos. I was contacted immediately by the Senior Associate Solicitor Hayley Hill, that gave me all the assistance I needed to find out the truth and the reason of his death. They were absolutely the best law firm I could hope to find and they sorted out the case in a very short time for me, because I live in Italy and the case in Italy would take me about 10 years to sort out. Hayley Hill helped me to sort out the case in less than 2 years and we closed all with the defendants insurers." - 5* Trustpilot review
"Hayley was very professional, friendly and highly efficient in dealing with my late husband’s claim. She always responded promptly to any queries I experienced in providing the relevant information required. Although it was during lockdown which meant delays were inevitable, Hayley always kept me updated and informed and apologised for the time it took to proceed at each level of the claim. She showed empathy and understanding and had a lovely caring and warm telephone manner and always displayed kindness and support. My heartfelt thanks to Hayley and Irwin Mitchell in obtaining a successful outcome to the claim." - 5* Trustpilot review
