    I could easily recommend irwin Mitchell… I could easily recommend irwin Mitchell for legal help. The process although long was made easier by my solicitor keeping me informed, and reassuring me when I was becoming disheartened. They didn't just treat me as a client but as an individual.


    We first started dealing with Irwin Mitchell Medical Negligence Team back in 2004/2005, following the birth of our first child. Our daughter sustained severe injuries at birth due to a very traumatic delivery. Even though Irwin Mitchell is a large organisation, the Medical Negligence Team who we have dealt with such as Julianne Moore and Anne Brundell have been extremely personable and supportive through the whole long 14 years of the legal process to get justice for our daughter. This was also replicated through all of the secretary's and office staff as and when I spoke to them over the telephone and visited the office in Sheffield. Which I certainly believe is a rarity in the large many organisation today. When dealing with both Julianne and Anne, they at all times were readily available and always happy to listen or discuss any issues or concerns which we had and always put our minds at ease, which certainly made the whole process far more easier to deal with and keep in control of. Our daughter's legal case did not get settled out of Court, nor at the 'Round Table Meeting' and then went to Court, then Appeal and eventually justice was done and our daughter was awarded the correct level of money for the severe injuries which she sustained. Through this process, which put me in some situations which I had never experienced before, they gave me confidence and reassurance and I felt very much support during the Court proceedings. I found that this team of experts were at all times, friendly, empathetic, tenacious and professional, which I certainly believe had a big impact on the successful outcome of my daughters legal battle. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend these ladies at Irwin Mitchell, they are certainly a team of professionals who you can rely on when dealing with very important and consequential legal matters. My husband and I would like to sincerely thank Julianne Moore, Anne Brundell and all the other members of staff who helped through this whole process. Thank you
