Julie Pearson

Compliance & Progression Manager

Julie Pearson

Compliance & Progression Manager

Julie Pearson is a Senior Quality & Progression Executive in the Quality and Progression team at Express Solicitors having joined the firm in September 2018.  Julie is no stranger to law firms, however, having started as a Junior Clerk in the 1980’s and working her way up the employment ladder.

Julie has had extensive training in personal injury law, having spent in excess of twenty years working at Manchester law firms as a Personal Injury Litigator where the cases she dealt with gradually increased in complexity and value.  She has taken great care in getting to grips with medical terminology and gained a self-taught qualification through the Association of Medical Secretaries, Practice Managers, Administrators and Receptionists (AMSPAR).

This has given Julie an excellent understanding of injuries sustained by clients enabling her to gain success in claims involving soft-tissue injuries and making every effort to maximise client damages; one such case reported in Kemp & Kemp Volume 3, Section F: Spine and Ribs, F9-094 Kelleway v Wade being a case Julie dealt with from inception to trial. Julie has also dealt with fractures, dislocations, ligament ruptures, extensive facial and body scarring, anxiety and PTSD, and more unusual cases such as Marfan syndrome where the accident affected the Claimant’s heart and surrounding tissues. She has also been successful in pursuing claims against an automatism defence and has a 100% success rate for detailed assessment of costs.

Julie has an ethos of ‘getting things right the first time’ which has led her to the role that she now fulfills where quality is the key; describing it as ‘a feeling of coming home’.  Above all she wants to be of service in an ever-changing personal injury environment, where passing on her knowledge of how law firms operate in the specialism of personal injury may be of benefit to the experience of Claimants, staff and management.
