Mewies Solicitors hires personal injury and clinical negligence specialist

Personal injury and clinical negligence specialist Mark Irlam has joined Skipton-based Mewies Solicitors.

Arriving from a firm in Burnley, Irlam brings more than 18 years of experience in personal injury to Mewies Solicitors.

As a personal injury specialist senior litigator, accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, Irlam works with sufferers of spinal injuries, brain injuries, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, amputations, bone injuries and soft tissue injuries.

He also undertakes civil litigation, dispute resolution and employment law for both individuals and commercial clients.

Irlam joins the litigation team at Mewies Solicitors, which is led by director Justin Birch, who said of the appointment: “Mark is a real expert when it comes to personal injury and clinical negligence claims, plus he brings with him a broad spectrum of litigation experience. I have no doubt that he will prove to be a real asset to the company and already has a following.”

Irlam said: “I am genuinely delighted to be working at Mewies. My Dad was a solicitor all his working life and he often had dealings with Jack Mewies so I felt strangely comfortable here from day one.”

“I live in Skipton too and love it here, so it’s great to be able to walk to work at a law firm which I know has a great reputation locally. I hope to be able to enhance that and bring my specialist expertise to the people of Skipton.”
