Since qualifying as a solicitor in 2011, I have specialised in medical negligence, handling a wide range of cases including:
- Cerebral palsy
- Surgical errors
- Delayed cancer diagnoses
- Inappropriate surgical technique and management.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
A close family member had a brain injury following a bicycle accident and although fortunately he made a good recovery, I was inspired to help those who require assistance as a result of negligence.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
When clients come to us, unfortunately they have often had a very difficult time. I enjoy getting answers for my clients about what went wrong and helping them to achieve compensation to improve their quality of life.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
Irwin Mitchell has a fantastic team of solicitors, who aren't only specialists in the field of medical negligence, but are genuinely passionate about what they do. We work closely with some amazing charities which is very rewarding.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I enjoy running and I completed the Yorkshire Marathon in October 2016, raising money for Martin House. I also like to spend time cycling, snowboarding and travelling.
From 2016 until 2018, I was a Trustee for a charity in Leeds called SNAPS (Special Needs and Parent Support). SNAPS offers hydrotherapy and rebound therapy for children with additional needs which was very rewarding.
"Firstly I would like to thank my solicitor Rebecca Pearey who took all her pride in handling my case from start to finish, she is a very dedicated and hard working solicitor, Rebecca guided me with her professional expertise, as my case was very sensitive not only treating my case professionally she also took pride in giving me moral support all the way.
I would highly recommend solicitor Rebbeca Pearey and her team in the leeds firm to all my family and friends"- Moon, Trustpilot
"Any trepidation one might have about entering into a legal process will be immediately removed by Irwin Mitchell’s staff and their practice. I cannot emphasise enough how professional and sympathetic everyone was, and I make special mention of Rebecca Pearey at this point, who dealt with my case with kindness, clarity and dependability.
Although the circumstances of my claim were far from ideal, her dedication to my case was indicative of the attitude of Irwin Mitchell in general. She, and they, were a pleasure to work with." - DM, Trustpilot
"Excellent professional advice, support and representation throughout a lengthy clinical negligence claim. Although the process took over 5 years the outcome was ultimately successful as a result of the tireless efforts of the Irwin Mitchell team. A particular thank you to: Michael Scobie, Kim McCleary and Rebecca Pearey who all worked on the case. Your expertise and guidance is greatly appreciated." - 5* Trustpilot review
