I am a paralegal within the Serious Injury team, based in our Newcastle office. Our team specialises in helping individuals and their families following a serious injury or fatal accident; with a particular interest in helping people who have sustained serious fractures or amputations.

My aim is to secure interim payments on account of a final awards where possible, in order to assist with rehabilitation and aid with quality of life. 

The Legal 500 have described our team as “extremely impressive”.

Chambers and Partners have also ranked our team in the regional top band, with a peer commending that when it comes to high value road traffic accident claims, we are difficult to beat.

What inspired you to get into law?

I started working in a law firm as an office junior. I found the work extremely interesting and rewarding and decided that I would like to advance my career in law further. I commenced training as a lawyer through the Chartered Institute of Legal Executive and my career has progressed from an office junior, to a legal secretary and currently to my role as a paralegal.  I hope to complete my CILEX qualification in the next couple of years and qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive.

What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?

The level of expertise my colleagues have is an inspiration; we all strive for excellence. We are passionate about helping people and making sure clients receive the correct rehabilitation to help them get their lives back on track. We work together sharing ideas and encouraging each other to do the best we can for our clients.

What do you do away from the office?

Away from the office I enjoy spending time with my family, including my two young boys who to spend time outdoor. I also like reading, watching American TV dramas and listening to music.

Understandably Sylvia’s family have been left heartbroken and are still coming trying to come to terms with what happened. “Sylvia’s death vividly highlights the devastation that can be caused by selfish drivers who pose a real danger to other road users by thinking it is acceptable to break the law. “While nothing will make up for Sylvia’s death we hope today’s sentence will act as a deterrent and make drivers think about the consequences of their actions, so the number of people killed or badly injured on our roads reduces. “We will continue to support Sylvia’s family through this extremely distressing time.”
