What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
It is inspiring to be a member of a team that is widely considered to be in the very first rank of clinical negligence claimant litigation.
What Do You Do Away From The office?
I enjoy cooking and keeping fit, and keeping a healthy balance between the two.
I am a governor of a local-authority-maintained Community School for young people aged 11 – 19 with severe and complex learning difficulties and/or disabilities.
"I have been very, very impressed by Irwin Mitchell. They won a settlement for my mother and stepfather in a hospital negligence case. My mother now has Alzheimer's and the team, lead by Juanita Cumberland, have been brilliant - we were met by great kindness, sensitivity and total professionalism throughout. Juanita, her colleague Su-Lynn Kok, and the QC Jonathan Hand, were such a pleasure to deal with that it made a very difficult and upsetting situation a great deal easier. I thoroughly recommend them" - 5* Trustpilot review
"Although my case was a long time I always felt in good hands and was always contacted promptly when I had a concern or worry. Irwin Mitchell are a very professional solicitors with a strong legal team. I have used other solicitors before but i wish I’d known of Irwin Mitchell back then. They won my case and supported me but above all I felt they cared." - 5* Trustpilot review
"I would like to thank Sharon Donovan, Juanita, and especially Taylor Hackett for their excellent work, professionalism , kindness, and understanding especially on those occasions when we must have asked what could of been construed as pretty silly questions at a time when things were very stressful and anxious ( My husbands revision surgery). We always felt that however busy everyone was, we was always lent a sympathetic ear which was very much appreciated. We hoped for total support from Irwin Mitchell when we instructed them, we got so much more. We would highly recommend Irwin Mitchell and would definitely use them again in the future. Many many thanks from the bottom of our hearts you were all brilliant." - 5* Trustpilot review
