I am a senior solicitor in the Serious Injury team in Sheffield, dealing almost solely with individuals who have suffered brain injury (or fatal injuries) usually as a result of road traffic collisions. My particular expertise is working with young people, as they progress through adolescence and into early adulthood.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
It is such a long time ago that I pursued law as a career, that I can barely remember what inspired me, but I have always had a strong sense of justice and I think this initially inspired me to pursue a legal career.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I particularly enjoy the practical aspects of my job, utilising my problem solving skills and helping clients and their families to come to terms with what has happened to them. Enabling clients to achieve success and fulfilment in other ways is a very rewarding aspect of my job.
What Do You Like About Working For Irwin Mitchell?
I enjoy the fact that I can specialise in working with people with brain injury. I don’t have to be a “jack of all trades and master of none”. I also value the support networks which are in place.
"Thank you again for all the work you did for us and which allowed X to have the happy life she now has." - Client's stepfather
"Caroline gave us our family back and for that we will be eternally grateful. We now have our son back, even though there will still be difficult days ahead. He is nearer the son we had before the accident. They got him the rehab and support he needed and I felt like I was no longer alone in helping him deal with the injuries and aftermath of the accident.
"I would like to thank Caroline from the bottom of our hearts for all her help and support, getting us through the difficult times, being there in person and at the end of the phone whenever we needed her." - Client's father
"My mother was represented by Caroline Mitchell and Bethany Passmore as Paralegal. From start to finish both were professional, accommodating and prompt. During the difficult times through lockdown, Caroline and Bethany did their upmost to keep us updated and maintained momentum during a lengthy and complex case. I was particularly impressed by Caroline’s patience! As I am by no means familiar with the legal process and or jargon, Caroline was always ready to explain and often repeat herself so we all understood.
The whole experience of working with Caroline and Bethany has been a good one. They are both happy to help and we felt protected and guided by them. This was especially true during court proceedings! The team briefed us on court etiquette and helped us all feel at ease. I would recommend Irwin Mitchell to anyone in need of help. Caroline and Bethany provide a quick, smooth, honest and personal service. Many thanks to you both." - 5* Trustpilot review
"Awesome from start to finish I was given a 5* therapy team which made things a lot better for me, they always made sure they kept me up to date with every detail along the way which was very helpful. I would just like to say a big Thank-you to Caroline Mitchell, Andrew, James, Kerry Ford, Will Forsdike, Victoria Gammon, James at more rehab, Jo Simms, Helen my OT and all the rest of my team a big Thank-you! I wouldn’t be where I am now without your help" - 5* Trustpilot review
"I had a 9 year long settlement case with Irwin Mitchell acting as my legal team. The solicitors, in particular Tom Mather and Caroline Mitchell, worked extremely hard throughout the case to help me receive the settlement result that I needed following an accident in 2010 which resulted in me sustaining life-changing injuries. Since my case and settlement ended I decided to keep Irwin Mitchell to manage my assets because I was profoundly satisfied with their service over the previous decade" - 5* Trustpilot review
"The team around me have been extremely helpful and supportive. The contacts have always responded to myself when needed and fairly swiftly too. Whether it be for more information for myself or chasing on my behalf. They have been great, in particular the two contacts I have liaised with regularly being Peri Baldwin & Caroline Mitchell."- 5* Trustpilot review
"Absolutely amazing team very professional and helpful with any concerns I had. Caroline Peri and Georgie have been amazing! I can't thank them enough. Highly recommended" - 5* Trustpilot review
