We’re pleased to welcome two more Personal Injury solicitors to the Serious & Catastrophic Injury Team!
Antonia Riley joins Birchall Blackburn Law as a Serious & Catastrophic Injury Solicitor. As well as an LLB (Hons) and is a qualified Solicitor of the Senior Courts of England & Wales. Originally, Antonia enjoyed a successful ten-year career in the financial sector. She decided to pursue a career in law and accumulated experience in several areas of personal injury law. Antonia brings a wealth of expertise and unrivalled compassion when it comes to helping our clients make claims for road traffic accidents, accidents at work, head injuries, assaults and slips, trips and falls.
Antonia said: “I relocated from Leicestershire and wanted to stay within the Claimant side of personal injury. It is very rewarding to have a positive impact on a client’s quality of life, making this a very worthwhile area to practice in. I also think my personality lends itself to a career in law which is why after working in banking for 10 years I decided to take the plunge.”
Mahima Mahzabin joins Birchall Blackburn Law as our new Personal Injury Paralegal. Mahima previously undertook defendant work for DWF LLP in Manchester. Mahima brings a professional and diplomatic approach to her work. She moves from a defendant background to the claimant side of personal injury, with MoJ portal claims as her specialist area of law. She has experience dealing with Employer’s and Public Liability cases, as well as road traffic accidents and injury cases involving minors.
Mahima said, “Having worked in a few different areas of law, Personal Injury was a sector which interested me the most as every case is a different challenge. I was looking to move from defendant work to claimant work – and Birchall Blackburn’s name just kept coming up – I really wanted to work for a tight-knit firm.”
Quentin Underhill, Head of Serious and Catastrophic Injury, commented, “It’s a pleasure to welcome both Mahima and Antonia to the team. They join us with impressive experience and knowledge on a range of personal injury cases. Their interpersonal skills and individual professional expertise are sure to be a great asset to Birchall Blackburn Law and our clients.”
