Job Title: Solicitor
Anna joined JMW as a solicitor in October 2014 after gaining her professional experience in two smaller Personal Injury practices in the North West. Anna grew up in Poland and graduated with a Masters degree from the Faculty of Law and Administration of the University of Warsaw.
From 2008 she ran her own legal practice as a barrister (adwokat) in Warsaw providing legal advice for individual and corporate clients within civil, criminal and administrative law. She dealt with a wide spectrum of litigation and dispute-solving activities, including a number of major cases and disputes which enabled her to gain large court representation experience.
Anna relocated to the UK in September 2012. She was admitted as a Solicitor in England and Wales via the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme in 2014, having been assessed in 2013.
Outside of work, Anna enjoys spending time with friends, practising yoga (the hot version recently), hiking, going to the cinema and travelling.
Why did you join JMW?
I always wanted to work for a respectable and well known law firm and I am of the opinion that JMW deserves the prestige it has within the industry. Also, I believe that in this organisation I will be able to develop and make the best use of my distinctive credentials such as my first-rate understanding of another European legal system and foreign languages.
I have been successful in wining numerous personal injury cases for Polish nationals who suffered accidents whilst working and/or staying in the UK. The fact that I could explain to the clients the nuances of legal procedure and guide them step by step through the whole process made a very big difference to the most of them. The feedback I was receiving made me realise that very often, were it not for my command of the Polish language they would not have been able to win the compensation they deserved.
Who would you...
Share a pint with/have cook for you/spend a night in with:
Well, my first choice would probably be my family and friends, especially for spending a night in with. I would love to have another conversation over a pint with my Dad who sadly passed away in 2012. Regarding the meal cooked for me…it’s a bit tricky to name anyone as I am a pescetarian and very aware of how all respectable cooks feel about weirdos like me!
