Sally Murphy

  • Key Details


I am an associate in the Court of Protection Department at Irwin Mitchell based in our Manchester Office. I qualified as a solicitor in September 2015, after undertaking a two year training contract with the firm.

On a daily basis, I act on behalf of clients who have been assessed as lacking the mental capacity to manage their own property and financial affairs and have a Deputy appointed by the Court of Protection. I am regularly involved in making applications to Court for the appointment of a professional or lay deputy, and subsequently in assisting with the delivery of Irwin Mitchell’s professional deputyship services. I engage in making ‘best interests’ decisions on behalf of clients, with the involvement of their families, and have a professional but compassionate input in to the management of damages awards and property and affairs.

I am also experienced in operating Professional Trusts for clients who have capacity to manage their affairs, but seek some professional guidance and support.

What inspired you to get into law?

I have always had a keen sense of justice and I enjoy working with others, therefore, I saw a legal career, especially at a firm like Irwin Mitchell, as an opportunity to make a difference to the everyday lives of those who deserve it most.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

I feel honoured to work with my inspiring clients, who have often sustained life changing injuries, to build up a relationship of trust and stability. I am able to provide assistance and empathy at difficult times, but the most rewarding aspect of my role is being part of the client’s journey through the litigation process and in to the future, witnessing the positive progress made by each individual.

What do you like about working for Irwin Mitchell?

I feel privileged to work at Irwin Mitchell, with friendly, likeminded colleagues, who are all pursuing a common goal; to achieve the best for our clients.

What do you do away from the office?

Outside of work, I take part in several charitable initiatives, raising money for charities such as the Prince’s Trust and assisting primary school children with their reading skills. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family and I regularly attend the gym.

Hopefully others in a similar situation will take note of how Geoff has fought back and it will give them the confidence to improve too.”

    'Strength And Determination' Helps Young Mother Rebuild Her Life After Brain Injury

    “Rebecca’s brain injury left her with severe cognitive difficulties and personality disorder, and she struggled to stay in mainstream school. After contacting us, Rebecca was assessed and due to her significant brain injury was confirmed as lacking capacity to manage her property and affairs, so she was placed under Court of Protection care to help her. After several years of intense rehabilitation and treatment, Rebecca has been now re-evaluated and it is evident how much progress she has made. I’ll never forget how happy she and her son were when they moved into their first house together and had a place to call home. At that point it became clear how far she had come. I’m excited to see what the future holds for such an incredible woman, and I feel honoured to have been part of her journey.”
