Sarah Parkin



I specialise in adult brain injury and spinal cord injury claims. I have assisted on a number of cases where we have obtained substantial interim payments in order to implement rehabilitation packages to assist with our client’s recovery. Within our team, we understand the importance of early rehabilitation and work hard to ensure that the appropriate therapy is in place to ensure the best recovery possible.

I first joined Irwin Mitchell LLP in June 2008 where I gained experience working on the Legal Helpline, before securing a paralegal position within the Product Liability team in Sheffield. During my training, I gained experience in a number of different areas of law before qualifying as a Solicitor in the Serious Injury Team.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I first showed an interest in working in law when I carried out work experience at school. I then tailored my studies to follow this route and I didn’t look back! I gained work experience in different areas before I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in Personal Injury.  

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

The most rewarding part of my role is ensuring that clients have the opportunity to progress with their rehabilitation and seeing the goals that they achieve. I know that my efforts have made a difference and there is nothing more rewarding than this. 

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I like working within a hardworking, passionate and experienced team. We all care so much about our clients and they always come first in everything that we do. We also benefit from the expertise of other teams within Irwin Mitchell, such as the Court of Protection team and the Public Law and Human Rights department, so we can ensure that our clients get the assistance they require.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

When I am not at work, I like to go for long walks in the fresh air. I also enjoy reading and catching up with my family and friends.
