I am a Solicitor within the Workplace Injuries and Illnesses Team.
I act for a wide variety of clients who have suffered a work place accident, a work related illness or an asbestos related disease. I also assist in the representation of survivors of physical, mental, sexual abuse and neglect.
Consequently, I have developed an in-depth understanding of how such injuries / illnesses affect individuals and their families. I thus ensure that our clients are at the centre of my work and that I spend time understanding each client’s needs and communicate with them openly and clearly.
I am dedicated to securing compensation for people whose lives have been blighted by personal injury. No amount of compensation can make good the loss of health or of a loved one but compensation and supported rehabilitation can help and provide financial security and a positive outlook for the future.
From the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, I have been accredited as a Senior Litigator, Asbestos Disease Specialist, Occupational Disease Specialist and Fatal Accidents Specialist.
During my training contract, I spent time working in the Public Law Department and the Medical Law and Patient Rights Team. I qualified as a solicitor in 2017.
What inspired you to get into law?
I knew from a very young age that I wanted to be a lawyer and help people secure justice. I was also interested in the ever changing nature of the law - I like a challenge.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Being able to help clients and their families at one of the most difficult times of their lives makes my job extremely rewarding.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
Working for Irwin Mitchell gives me the resources of a large national firm while still being able to provide every client with a unique, personalised service.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy spending time with my husband, family and friends, reading and shopping.
