I am an Associate specialising in clinical negligence. I help clients bring claims against hospitals, GP practices and private physicians when something has gone wrong in their treatment.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I studied law at university as I liked the challenge of being able to build a case and develop arguments to support a point. When I started to work at Irwin Mitchell I was able to put a lot of that theory into practice, helping people get justice for the pain and difficulties that they have suffered.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I enjoy guiding people through their claims and making the process as smooth and as stress-free as possible for them. Knowing that I can make a difference to people's situations and help make their lives a little easier is also very rewarding.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
There's a wealth of knowledge and experience here. I enjoy being able to help clients get advice where necessary from other areas of law across the firm while guiding them through their case.

"We had excellent attention and advice, Katrina always took time to listen and help us with many of our questions. She was incredibly thorough and she was very understanding when my husband wasn’t well enough to answer questions. As a result of this, we won our case, which we are hugely grateful about. Thank you Irwin Mitchell and Katrina." - Mrs C, client's wife - 5* Trustpilot review
