Marianne Walker

Solicitor

Biography

I am a solicitor based in Irwin Mitchell's London office and specialise in medical negligence.

I help my clients to claim compensation when they have been injured as a result of negligent medical treatment.

I advise clients who have suffered a wide range of medical issues including:

  • Delayed diagnosis of cancer
  • Spinal injuries
  • Still-birth and infant death
  • Fatal injuries
  • Sepsis
  • Amputations
  • Failings in nursing care.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I was first inspired to go into law by an A level tutor and former Barrister, who taught the subject and could conjure witty and quite crushing comments for any student not paying attention in class!

I took a more circuitous route in my studies, first obtaining an English Literature and Language degree at Leicester University and then obtaining a Law degree from the University of Law before qualifying as a Solicitor.

I have always loved the considered use of language to construct persuasive arguments and hone a case. It's an absolute privilege to use my skills and experience to help injured people secure proper compensation.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

The thing that really drives me in my work is helping my clients, most of whom have been badly injured, get through the process of bringing a claim. Making what can be a very stressful time in their lives easier, and coming out the other side of a successful case together is a real joy.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

The team! There is a huge wealth of experience in the team members throughout Irwin Mitchell's many departments and in the medical negligence department in particular.

Everyone contributes what they know to the common good, and there is no situation which someone in the department has not faced before.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I love to travel and have managed to fit in a number of far-flung explorations whilst studying, qualifying and working as a Solicitor including Cambodia, Vietnam, Australia, Bali and Japan. When at home I like to run (I've signed up for my first half marathon... eek), read a lot of books and see stand-up comedy.
