I head the very successful Medical Negligence team in our Birmingham office. This is an area I have specialised exclusively in for the last 15 years. It is an area of law that is both challenging and rewarding and although it still has the capacity to make me very sad I can't imagine practising any other type of law.
Irwin Mitchell is a fantastic firm to work for, they are and always have been totally committed to this work and the resources we all have to call upon make the job a much easier one for lawyers and clients alike. As well as heading the team I now work just on cases for children with cerebral palsy and I'm sure there can't be a more inspiring group of clients to work with.
"There is nobody who exceeds her in experience and understanding of the issues." - Chambers & Partners 2017
She is "second to none." - Chambers & Partners 2015
"A leading figure in the field of clinical negligence", "She is technically high-calibre and as a people's person, she gets clients and staff on side. She motivates like you wouldn't believe." - Chambers & Partners 2014
"Recommended for her work in cerebral palsy claims." - Legal 500 2013
"Dynamic," "very easy to get on with, very easy to understand" and at the "top of the profession." - Chambers & Partners 2013
My father, I'm not even sure I can remember how or why since he isn't a lawyer and neither was anyone else in the family but I blame him.
Undoubtedly the clients I have had the privilege to work with over the years who remind me constantly what is important in life.
The excellent lawyers I work with who make me look good and the support services that surround me which make my job so much easier than it otherwise would and enable me to provide a comprehensive service for my clients.
In the occasional spare moments that my husband and three children haven't planned out for me I love to read, exercise, watch films, travel and drink good wine although probably not in that order.
When your child is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy it is life-changing, but we’ve seen first-hand how specialist rehabilitation and therapies can help families to live their lives fully. We want to raise awareness of the many great charities offering important support for those affected.
“People living Cerebral Palsy have extremely complex needs and Irwin Mitchell works with many charities which help offer support to families facing the challenge of living with the condition.
“Many of our clients have proved to be inspirational in the way they have worked hard on their rehabilitation programmes to overcome the odds and achieve remarkable things. Over the past few years we have particularly encouraged involvement in disability sports through our Don’t Quit, Do It campaign as we have seen the massive benefits both physically and psychologically for those affected.
“The most common cause of the types of cerebral palsy that we see are traumatic births which are deeply distressing for the families involved. Each incident is a chance to learn lessons and it is important that we raise awareness of the issues surrounding cerebral palsy to help those affected and to reduce the risk of similar problems in future.”
“Through our work, we see just how devastating the effects of a stroke can be, especially if opportunities to identify or treat them have been missed. It is this experience which drives us to, not only raise awareness of the warning signs of the condition but also, ensure stroke survivors have access to the highest quality of care and support in their rehabilitation.
By sharing some of our experiences with the condition we hope to help families who may be struggling with some of the day-to-day challenges caused by stroke.”

“We’re so proud to be supporting Breast Cancer Care on our new Mythbusters quiz to show our support for such a brilliant cause.
“We understand the importance of a prompt diagnosis, so it’s crucial to know the facts about breast cancer and how to check your breasts for signs and symptoms.
“This October the quiz will help raise awareness about breast cancer facts in a fun and simple way.”
