I specialise in helping clients who have suffered injuries as a result of negligence by medical professionals. I handle many different types of claim but have a particular interest in spinal and brain injury cases.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
From a young age I always wanted to be a solicitor. I studied medical law at university and my interest in this area grew. I also worked in the complaints and litigation department of an NHS Trust during my university holidays and this further interested me in people's concerns about their medical care, how their concerns could be handled and how they could be resolved.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
There is real job satisfaction in succeeding in a clinical negligence case for a client and seeing the difference compensation makes to the quality of their life. I also enjoy the challenge of the complex medical and legal issues that often feature in clinical negligence claims.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
I have worked at Irwin Mitchell since 2006 and love working within a team of lawyers who are so talented at what they do.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, running and swimming.

"Kate Easy was so lovely and understanding her team did so much for my Dad. Irwin Mitchell meant my Dad had someone that listened to him when no one else would. He had a good case to fight over hospital neglect and Irwin Mitchell would always keep him up to date with everything that went on. He finally felt that he would get the justice he needed but sadly he passed away just before the case went to court. My Dad always said to me that Kate and her team gave him hope after he passed away, we fought for my Dad.
Kate and her colleagues refused to go down without a fight and we finally won! The amount wasn't important to us, we just wanted to ensure my Dad had peace and finally got what he deserved and that was justice. Our family would like to say thank you so much for all the hard work you went though for us for dad and even though he's not here he would of been happy that he's can rest now. Thank you"- 5* Trustpilot review
