I joined Irwin Mitchell in February 2018 as a solicitor in the Serious Injury Team.
I help adults and children who've had complex and serious injuries, including spinal cord injuries. I also represent people who've suffered serious orthopaedic injuries, traumatic brain injuries, or amputation. These injuries can be due to a variety of accidents, including road traffic accidents and accidents at work.
I also represent the families of people who've been tragically killed as the result of an accident.
Before starting my solicitor's training contract, I worked as a paralegal specialising in spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury claims. I qualified into a role as a solicitor specialising in spinal cord injury and other serious injury claims before joining Irwin Mitchell.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
The most rewarding aspect of my role is seeing my client get back to doing things they did before their injuries; this could be getting back to work, looking after their grandchildren, or mowing the lawn, or perhaps re-engaging in cycling having been knocked off of their bike. It is so rewarding to have been a small part of that journey, with the claims process providing a mechanism for our clients to have rehabilitation that they may not otherwise have had access to. The firms shares my passion for rehabilitation and I am proud to be part of a firm that supports disability sport.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
Alongside my 'day job' Irwin Mitchell allows me the time and support to help people who cannot afford legal representation free of charge (or 'pro bono') and this is something I am hugely passionate about.
What Do Yo Do Away From The Office?
Outside of work, I am a keen runner and running coach - the furthest I have run in one go is 64.5 miles! I enjoy going to the cinema, eating out, and spending time with my friends and family, especially my growing number of nieces and nephews.
"I would like to thank Jodee Mayer for the efficiency and sensitivity in the way she handled my parents’ claims. Jodee made my mum feel comfortable being able to ring and ask questions as she has never had dealings with solicitors and this was a difficult and traumatic time for the family. Thank you to Jodee and her team." - Clients’ daughter
"IM took a helpful and non-pressuring approach which was appreciated by us, especially given the sensitivity of the position we found ourselves in due to our daughter’s injury. The partner at the outset was professional and provided the right amount of information. Towards the end of the period, Jodee Mayer provided excellent support, advice and comprehensive coverage of our questions and concerns. Thank you for your support in this difficult matter.' - Client’s Father
