I’m a Solicitor in the Medical Negligence team based in our Newcastle office. I specialise in representing people who’ve been injured as a result of medical negligence by healthcare providers. I also have a specialist interest in fatal claims and representing families who’ve lost a loved one at Inquest.
My main goal is making sure my clients get the answers they’re looking for, as well getting them the compensation they deserve.
What inspired you to get into law?
I took law at A level and absolutely loved it. I went on to study Law at the University of Leeds and couldn’t see myself doing anything else. Law is a challenging but rewarding career. Working in medical negligence allows me to help people and my cases offer a lot of variety.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
It’s being able to help people at difficult times in their lives. Achieving settlement allows clients to move on, breathe easier and begin rebuilding their lives. It’s extremely rewarding to be able to help them to receive compensation and rehabilitation.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
I love being part of a passionate and supportive team. My colleagues are genuinely lovely people who go above and beyond to help each other and their clients.
Irwin Mitchell is also dedicated to supporting local and national charities such as: Heel & Toe, North East and Yorkshire CP Football, Children North East, The Stroke Association and UK Sepsis Trust. Irwin Mitchell allow colleagues time to volunteer and work with these charities which is extremely rewarding.
What do you do away from the office?
I love spending time with friends and family, including my four legged family members, Rosie the Welsh Terrier, as well as Ant and Dec the guinea pigs.
I’m an avid football fan and season ticket holder at the Stadium of Light.
