I'm a Paralegal specialising and dealing with personal injury claims involving road traffic accidents. My workload consists of claims where allegations of fraud (or ‘fundamental dishonesty’) are raised against the claimant.
I prepare claims for litigation and run a mix of both litigated and non-litigated claims. I also have experience of dealing with Ministry of Justice Portal cases and running these cases to a trial when needed.
What Inspired You to Get Into Law?
I started with Irwin Mitchell in 2018 after working at different firms for four years.
As a child, I always had an interest in the medical profession - my dad worked in a hospital so I attended events when I was younger. As I got older, my interests changed to more of the legal side of medicine. After completing my A-Levels, I decided that I'd like to pursue a career in law with a particular interest in personal injury.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
The most rewarding aspect of my role is helping my clients and supporting them and knowing that I have been able to help someone through a difficult time.
What Do You Like Best About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
The thing that I like best about working for Irwin Mitchell is that it's like a big family. Everyone supports one another and we have fun together.
I like that there are lots of opportunities on offer to help progress my career within the firm. There are lots of training opportunities and the options to progress and learn at your own pace.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I enjoy dancing and partake in both tap and ballet. I take exams yearly and we do a yearly show which gives me the opportunity to perform on stage.
I also play in a local darts league, and whilst I may not be the best, this is something that I really enjoy and will continue to play.
