I am a Solicitor in the Cambridge office specialising in the Asbestos Related-Diseases. I visit patients in their homes to offer advice and assistance. I'm passionate about working in asbestos law and am a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and an accredited litigator.
I was drawn to a career in law because I wanted to help people.
I find it extremely rewarding to be able to help people who have been diagnosed with an asbestos related condition and support them and their families. It's a real privilege to meet so many lovely, inspirational people.
One of the things I really enjoy about being part of this company is the opportunity to take part in fundraising activities and offer support for a wide range of charities both locally and nationally. I have had the privilege of taking part in events such as the Superhero Tri and Parallel London.
I enjoy swimming, running, baking, playing netball in the Irwin Mitchell Cambridge team and spending time with friends and family.
"We were kept fully informed as to the progress of the claim through each step by Samantha Shaw, who was extremely efficient and professional throughout and a credit to your firm" - Mr & Mrs Lumb
’Samantha Shaw & her colleagues were all very professional, understanding and easy to deal with. They took their time to listen to our case, take us through the steps and explained each step in a simple and easy to understand way. I would not hesitate to recommend them." - Mrs Mosher
’We have been extremely pleased with the service, professionalism and efficiency, and we could not have asked for better results. Our circumstances have been very sensitive and were dealt with in a kind and orderly manner. Samantha Shaw was very thorough in her research, which reaped good results. We would certainly recommend Irwin Mitchell. Thank you." - Mrs Brooker
“Our clients remain understandably devastated by their loss but are determined to ensure that they secure justice in Basil’s memory.
“His story is yet another which highlights how the tragic consequences of asbestos exposure often become clear many years after the initial contact with the material is thought to have taken place.
“We would be grateful to anyone who may have information regarding the presence of asbestos at these two employers, as such detail could go some way towards us securing justice for this family.”
“Although I was very nervous in the build up to the jump, knowing I was doing it to raise money for such a worthy cause helped me get to the door of the plane. Once I jumped, it was a tremendous experience and one that I thoroughly enjoyed.
“At Irwin Mitchell, we are delighted to be raising money for Rowan this year because we see first-hand the fantastic work that the charity does.
“Both Katie and I were overwhelmed before the jump when we went to visit the centre. We were amazed by the work that Rowan does, and we couldn’t think of a better cause to face our fears for.”
“Asbestos has had a terrible impact on so many lives across the decades and this is yet another example of how the consequences of exposure often only become clear many years after contact has occurred.
“Thousands of people still die each year in the UK as a direct result of being made to work in unsafe conditions. Health and safety has come a long way in recent years but the figures show there is still much to do.
“Sometimes they are the victims of tragic but avoidable accidents, or, as with many of our clients, they were exposed to asbestos by their employers many years ago and have, in most cases, been made to suffer a terrible death as a result.
“We have been working hard to create a full picture of David’s work history and would be keen on hearing more regarding the conditions he would have faced during his time at Redland.
“Any information could prove absolutely vital to our efforts to ensure that his family gain justice for his death.”
“We are keen to get answers for Sylvia, Christine and David, regarding how Kenneth was exposed to harmful asbestos dust and fibres, and uncover whether more could have been done to protect him.
“To do this, we are appealing to anyone who remembers working with Kenneth at Cambridge University, or anyone who worked in the engineering department during the years Kenneth was employed there.
“We are keen to talk with his former colleagues about the presence of asbestos at the University, and how he may have been exposed to it while working.”
