I’m a solicitor in the clinical negligence team in the London Office. I studied Law at Northumbria University and graduated with a Law degree, Masters in Law and Legal Practice Course qualification.
I joined Irwin Mitchell as a medical negligence paralegal in the Newcastle office in September 2018. In September 2019, I transferred to the London office and qualified as a solicitor in 2021.
I have a varied medical law experience, including: fatal claims, delay in diagnosis claims, misdiagnosis claims, negligent treatment, psychiatric and surgical performance errors. I also have experience working on amputation and birth injury claims and have represented families at inquest.
I’m committed to getting the best outcome for my clients, while providing a service with a human touch.
What inspired you to get into law?
It is very cliché, but I’ve always wanted to be a lawyer. I think I was probably drawn in by watching a gripping TV programme as a child and I haven’t changed my mind since.
I chose my GCSE and A Level subjects on the basis that I would study law at University. I’m very determined and once I set myself a goal, I don’t stop until I achieve it.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I feel privileged to be able to assist my client’s through difficult times and get them the answers and favourable outcomes they deserve, to help them move forwards with their lives.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
At Irwin Mitchell, I’m part of a team who supports each other and their clients. We offer a wide range of services, so if a client needs legal assistance with other aspects of their lives, I’m able to refer them to my colleagues to help them.
What do you do away from the office?
I love spending time with my family and friends. My favourite past times are watching live music, attending festivals and Zumba classes and going for walks.

“I turned to Irwin Mitchel after a clinical negligence incident I had. The team is amazing and I really am happy with the service I received. My case was dealt with by Taylor Hackett and Auriana Griffiths. I can’t praise them enough. I was very anxious throughout the whole process and Taylor was very understanding and supported me a lot… I recommend this team. I didn’t need to chase them, they were always on point and two steps ahead…Thank you Auriana and Taylor and your amazing team. You took on all the stress and worry so I didn’t have to.” – 5* Trustpilot review
