Amira joined the Military Team at Bolt Burdon Kemp in April 2020, working alongside solicitors in her team to provide clients with compensation and to help clients recover from losses as a result of their injury. Amira assists Gaggan Mawi in cases involving individuals who have been injured during their service in the Armed Forces.
Before taking up her position as a paralegal, Amira qualified as a nurse in 2010 in Northern Ireland. She then worked as an intensive care nurse providing critical care to critically ill patients in Major Trauma Centres in London. She has over 10 years’ experience working for the NHS and private healthcare sector. Amira became actively involved in patient safety groups after attending medical board hearings at her previous workplace. This sparked a great interest in law and the changes that could be made to individual experiences. She decided to make the move from nursing to law to help people who have suffered negligence, causing injury. She gained a broad range of experience working in the areas of Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence. Having looked after Military personnel during her years working for the NHS, she gained a true admiration for the sacrifices that individuals make to work in the Military.
In her role, Amira has dealt with a broad range of cases including sexual assault, bullying and harassment, death during service and personal injury among many others. When Amira works on a case she enjoys speaking to clients and their families. She particularly enjoys working with her team to build the best case for individuals fighting for justice.
Having completed the Legal Practice Course at BPP University, London, Amira aspires to become a specialist Solicitor in the field of Personal Injury in the future.
