I am an Associate Solicitor based in our Leeds office. I have over 12 years of experience specialising in workplace injury. I studied law at Sheffield University before moving to York. I worked for a York-based firm for over 10 years before joining Irwin Mitchell to become part of the Asbestos Related Disease team.
My previous clients have praised the caring and compassionate manner with which I have dealt with their cases. I aim to support all of my clients through the process of their claim.
As a team, we are involved in various fundraising activities throughout the year to raise money for a number of charities who are breaking boundaries in researching new treatment options for mesothelioma patients.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I have always had a keen interest in the law and wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to provide a service to individuals in need while at the same time following this interest. As part of the team in Leeds I am definitely required to do this.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Being involved on a personal level to help and support clients during a usually difficult time in their lives and making their journey as smooth as possible.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I have 2 young children and enjoy spending time with the family away from the office. I like going for walks and exploring locally as well as taking advantage of the culture and activities that Leeds, York and the surrounding areas have to offer. I am also welfare officer to my local village junior football team.
"We engaged Irwin Mitchell to pursue a claim on behalf of my father-in-law, who tragically died from mesothelioma. At all stages of the process the team demonstrated exceptional skills, experience, professionalism and empathy. I would strongly recommend Irwin Mitchell to anyone who is thinking of pursuing a compensation claim for Mesothelioma or any other occupational illness and injury." – Client
"Thank you for the professional service you provided to myself and family. The guidance and support you showed us was exceptional. We were kept informed every step of the way, with emails, telephone calls and Zoom calls. Even during the unprecedented lockdown period, the momentum of the claim did not falter. Lucy and her colleagues guided us through, what was a very emotional period for us as a family, with sensitivity and competence. Thank you." - 5* Trustpilot review
"From start to finish the professionalism and job knowledge from Lucy Andrews was much appreciated. I can’t thank her enough for the help she gave me and my late father she’s one of those rare people that know and enjoy there jobs." - 5* Trustpilot review
"From the start of my dealing with Lucy Andrews, I have found her to be patient in explaining things in detail, (using words I could understand!). She has always kept me in touch with any new developments. I have been amazed, and astonished, at the number of letters she has written and the amount of relevant information she has managed to uncover. I can’t thank Mrs Andrews enough for all the work she has done on my behalf and, although I am, of course, delighted with the outcome, I shall miss my involvement with this, for me, unique experience." - 5* Trustpilot review
"I found Irwin Mitchell to be excellent. Lucy Andrews, who is the expert asbestos-related disease lawyer at Irwin Mitchell in Leeds, dealt with my case with great professionalism whilst displaying compassion and understanding.
From start to finish Lucy kept me informed and up-to-date with the progress of my case and was absolutely thorough in her attention to detail. Her input was instrumental into the overall outcome of the case and I cannot praise her highly enough." - 5* Trustpilot review
