I joined Irwin Mitchell in November 2018 as a newly-qualified Solicitor. My clients have suffered life-changing injuries including severe orthopaedic injuries, brain injuries and psychiatric injuries. I deal with road traffic accidents, accidents at work, public liability, occupiers' liability and equestrian accident claims.
I believe it's important to settle liability at an early stage and set up rehabilitation for clients at the earliest opportunity to help them recovery.
As well as having my own caseload, I also assist senior colleagues in £1 million + cases.
I head up the choir at the London Irwin Mitchell office. We regularly perform recitals in-house and at events such as Meningitis Now and The Voices of London Festival.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
Growing up, due to family circumstances, I was very aware of the legal process involved with making a claim for serious injury as a result of negligence. While at High School I had work experience at a local solicitors' firm which cemented my decision to enter the legal profession. I enjoy the human aspect to serious injury claims and the ability to make a big difference to our client’s and their families’ lives.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
The most rewarding aspect of my job is achieving a successful outcome for a client. This may be securing an interim payment to help with putting rehabilitation into place or securing the final settlement.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I moved to London in October 2018 therefore I am still rather new to London and spend my weekends exploring the city. I enjoy bouldering, roller skating and meeting with friends in my spare time.
