Our associated firm, Irwin Mitchell Scotland LLP, was established on 26 April 2011. As a senior solicitor within Irwin Mitchell Scotland LLP's Insurance Department, I deal with complex and high value personal injury claims arising as a result of road traffic accidents. I have considerable experience in taking personal injury claims on behalf of pursuers and on defending these types of claim for institutional clients in both the Court of Session and the Sheriff Court.
My role also involves providing technical assistance to solicitors and paralegals in the insurance procedure team on points of law and procedure and written pleadings. I also have a supervisory role in respect of solicitors in the household team.
I am regularly asked to give training seminars to members of the department.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I was inspired by my father, who was a policeman, to become a lawyer.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Achieving the best possible outcome for the client.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
I enjoy the team spirit in the Glasgow office and the varied case load.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
Much of my spare time is taken up with my family - however, I also find time to pursue my main hobby of decorative glasswork where I am currently attending a college course on Saturday mornings.
