I am an Associate 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
“Sadly, this case is like a huge number of cases we are involved in, with an individual going on to develop a very serious condition as a result of asbestos exposure which is believed to have occurred several decades ago.
We are determined to help our clients gain a greater understanding of how Derek developed this condition and whether more should have been done to help him.
A large part of this is shedding some light on the working conditions at Cliff Quay in the 1960s. Derek worked with a number of workmates, some doing similar work and others who carried out different tasks within close proximity and I would be hugely grateful if anyone who worked there at this time would come forward with any information they have.”
“Peter’s story is sadly like a great number of others we act for, with it revolving around an individual who has developed an asbestos-related condition many years after contact with the material is thought to have taken place.
“As Peter’s brother, Keith, lives abroad, his friend has volunteered to work on his behalf to try and get answers regarding how Peter ultimately developed mesothelioma.
“After assessing his work history, we believe it may have occurred at Perkins Engines and would appreciate it if anyone with knowledge of the company could provide further information.
“Any detail no matter how small could make a major difference to our efforts.”
“Peter’s experience is one that we sadly see all too many times in our work. People working in heavy industry were often exposed to asbestos without being made aware of its dangers, or being protected from it.
“We have been working hard to develop a clear picture of his working life and would be hugely grateful to anyone who can provide detail regarding how and whether he may have been exposed to asbestos while working for W&J Glossop Ltd.
“Any information no matter how small could make a significant difference to our efforts to help Jan gain justice.”
“It’s been great fun seeing the book come together, and all the great illustrations from the Rowan students.
“This creative working in small groups with tutors enables Rowan’s students to develop social and communication skills, offering a rounded and stimulating group experience to each individual participant.
“The active participation in community events and arts activities is also important as a means of connecting directly with our local community and cultural heritage. Meeting people in new and different environments help to stimulate ideas and discussion as well as being a platform for enabling greater social inclusion.”
