What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

'During the time my case took to complete, I was at all times kept up to date with all matters. I never felt I had been forgotten and I was consulting on anything they though or needed my thoughts on.' - Mr F, client
'The case was handled very professionally and with a great deal of empathy and sensitivity to my personal circumstances. Sylvia through this case has been an ideal example of the ’Gold Standard’ of law practitioners, by which other professionals should be measured.' - Mr H, client
“I did some research and found nothing but good feedback on Irwin Mitchell…It was the best thing we could have done and from the moment she answered the phone and throughout the whole transition of the claim, both her and her assistant Sylvia Phillips were amazing, they were knowledgeable, empathetic, understanding, not at all pushy and sympathetic…
…I cannot rate them highly enough, not only are they experts in their field they have very strong interpersonal skills and are approachable at all times. If you are looking for someone to fight your corner for you, act with professionalism at all times , whilst also being people you can talk to then look no further… Don’t make the mistake we did and waste your time with other people when you, in my opinion, won’t find better.” - 5* Trustpilot Review, Mrs P, client.
