I’m a partner in our national Family Team with particular links to the South Coast and Bristol, although my clients come from all over the country and abroad. I handle all kinds of family law work including matters with an international element. I have a specialist interest in wealth protection for my clients and I lead our Pre- and Post-Nuptial Agreements Team of Excellence.
I’m passionate about the law and using it to the best advantage of my clients. But expert legal knowledge is just one aspect of my role. For me, it is essential to truly understand my client’s priorities and objectives and take a strategic and tactical approach. I provide my clients with pragmatic and commercial advice.
What inspired you to get into law?
I wanted to be a lawyer from an early age. A passion for justice and wanting to help people combined with enjoying problem solving (and finding out I’m probably too squeamish to be a doctor).
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Clients often consult us at a very low point in their lives. It’s great to see a client grow in confidence by the end of their case.
I also love to work with our bright junior lawyers and help them develop their knowledge and experience (and they also keep me on my toes!)
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
Where to start?! Irwin Mitchell colleagues are the most genuinely caring, client-focused and supportive people I have worked with. And there is always someone who can help, no matter what the issue: there are specialists in everything - not just family law but every legal discipline - so we can give our clients a truly holistic and complete service.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy food and drink and getting out on the water when I can. An early morning bootcamp helps me to keep fit.
"I used Irwin Mitchell to help with my divorce. Hayley Trim was professional and responsive at all times. Communication was excellent via email and everything clear and understandable. While not acrimonious it was complicated - these guys made it sound easy and at least some of the stress was taken away. Thank you" - 5* Trustpilot review
"Hayley was very helpful and punctual with my legal assistance. She is professional but also warm and approachable. I would recommend the company as a whole too." - 5* Trustpilot review
