I have over 16 years’ experience handling complex asbestos related disease claims, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural thickening.
I have achieved many great results for my clients. This includes securing agreements that Defendants will pay for private immunotherapy treatment (unavailable through the NHS) in the future, as and when appropriate.
I'm passionate about the rights of asbestos victims, working closely with a local asbestos support group, Readley.
I deliver a high standard of client care, dealing with my clients with empathy and understanding, particularly when dealing with those with a terminal illness. I've also dealt with other non-asbestos occupational disease claims.
What inspired you to get into law?
I was the first member of my family to have a career in law. Having now specialised in asbestos diseases for most of my career, I'm driven to obtaining justice for injured people exposed to asbestos through no fault of their own and facing a terminal illness.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I have remarkable clients who are fighting a terminal disease, often left with little hope and it is rewarding to become an integral part in their fight for justice. I enjoy working with asbestos victims charities to ensure all persons affected by this terrible disease are offered first class advice and support.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I like working at Irwin Mitchell because we work as one, united team. There is a huge depth of expertise and skill that enables me to provide a full service to all my clients.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy spending time with my family, and I have two young children, who keep me very busy outside work. I love holidays abroad and enjoy reading, and family cycling and walking.
“This review follows the outstanding service provided by Helen Jones at Irwin Mitchell. During a difficult industrial disease case on behalf of my late father, Helen was the solicitor who managed this during the latter phase and drew it to a conclusion. Helen was timely, caring, clear and factual when I was probably asking some of the most basic questions, she showed empathy and respect for my family and was clearly an expert in her field. An asset to Irwin Mitchell." - 5* Trustpilot review
