I specialise in recovering compensation for people who’ve been diagnosed with a workplace illness. Some conditions are caused by exposure to asbestos and I help clients with conditions such as asbestosis, pleural thickening, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.
I also help clients with a range of other respiratory problems, such as asthma, COPD, silicosis and pulmonary fibrosis. These conditions can be caused by exposure to a range of different toxic substances, such as respirable crystalline silica for silicosis.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I wanted to become a solicitor because I wanted a career that was interesting, varied, and allowed me to give something back to society.

"Our case was handled by Dominic Riley who was attentive, thoughtful and considerate at a very difficult time. Information relating to our case was presented in a concise way without the complexities of legal jargon and without condescension! We always felt that we could ask any question at any time and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent legal service. Highly recommended." - 5* Trustpilot review
"I would highly recommend Irwin Mitchell Solicitors. The Solicitor we dealt with (Dominic Riley) was very professional and courteous, explained everything thoroughly, listened and answered any questions no matter how trivial they may have seemed. We felt very confident in his guidance and advice. As this was during the period of 'lockdown', communication was via email and telephone and it was exceptionally prompt; emails were answered straight away and telephone appointments were always on time. Thank you for making this a positive experience."- 5* Trustpilot review

We would not hesitate to recommend Irwin Mitchell in view of our experience with Dominic." - 5* Trustpilot review
