I am a paralegal in Irwin Mitchell’s International Serious Injury team. I assist fee earners who act for clients who have been injured overseas. Our team specialise in cases which involve a foreign element and often deal with conflicting jurisdictions.
I support fee earners with complex, high value claims. We see various types of serious injury including brain and spinal injuries, multiple fractures, psychological trauma, and fatal accidents.
What inspired you to get into law?
I have experienced first hand the impact that a serious injury can have on an individual and their family. I feel inspired to help people who have been seriously injured to achieve the justice that they deserve.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
It is inspiring to see clients access the help that they need to get their lives back on track. It is extremely rewarding to see that the actions which we take in litigation have a significant, positive impact on a clients life and the lives of their family.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I have really enjoyed being part of such a fantastic team at Irwin Mitchell. We have lawyers who are truly brilliant at what they do. I believe that we provide the best advice and service to our clients to achieve the most outstanding results.
What do you do away from the office?
I am a keen traveller and am fortunate to have spent long periods of time abroad in various parts of the world. I love sports - particularly football, and try to get to the Hawthorns as often as possible to watch my favourite team West Bromwich Albion.
I am also very musical and currently play lead guitar in a band which is something I very much enjoy!
