I am an Associate Solicitor in the Serious Injury team, based in our Birmingham office.
I represent people (both adults and children) who have suffered a serious injury ranging from a brain injury to multiple orthopaedic fractures.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
At the age of 16 I did some work experience for a newspaper and they sent me to a criminal trial. I realised I was more interested in the legal proceedings than the journalism!
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Making a difference. It can mean getting an early interim payment for someone who isn't working and is worried about how to pay the mortgage, right through to helping a client purchase and adapt a property which is made suitable for their needs.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
Although we are a big firm we are very personable. We have a range of departments which usually means that we can meet all of a client's legal needs.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I love cooking for my husband, friends and family. I am also a bit of a gym enthusiast but that is really only so I can eat what I want!
"I can't give enough praise for how Irwin Mitchell handled my case. Kate Hewson was my assigned solicitor, throughout the long process she kept me fully up to date on proceedings at all times, She listened to my issues, arranged for me to see all the necessary experts to build my case and I was extremely happy with the final settlement. A huge thanks to Kate and all the team." -5* Trustpilot review
"Thanks to Irwin Mitchell i found all personnel involved in my case very approachable and knowledgeable. I would also like to thank Toni Knott, Kate Hewson and Alice Hall for their time and effort. In my case and how they made the whole process so painless for me. I would recommend them in the future to friends and family."-5* Trustpilot review
"I would like to say a huge thank you to Toni Knott, Alice Hall and Kate Hewson and all those involved with my case. After being involved in a serious accident four years ago they have been with us all the way through the process, they helped with everything along the way (house adaptations - internal and external, car adaptations, interim payments, advice and support). I don’t know how we would have made it through without them. I am more than happy with the settlement, I think I can honestly say that I am going to miss the care and support they have helped provide. Everybody involved has been very professional, helpful, trustworthy and friendly. I fully recommend Irwin Mitchell."-5* Trustpilot review
