Amy Cassell is an Associate Solicitor at Express Solicitors having joined the firm in March 2012. She works in the Employer’s Liability department alongside Partner Richard Lowery dealing with a wide range of work accident cases, including claims relating to falls from height, accidents caused by machinery and crushing injuries. Amy also assists with serious injury claims including loss of limbs, as well as with claims regarding fatalities from injuries sustained in the work place.

Amy states that the best part of her job is talking to clients since she feels that she can communicate with them well; making them feel as comfortable as possible so that they don’t hold back on any vital information towards a case!  Amy’s biggest achievement up-to-date was whilst working at Express Solicitors when she got promoted from the New Client Team (NCT) to working as a paralegal after only a couple of months at the firm.

Before Amy joined Express Solicitors she undertook 5 years of hard study. In doing so, Amy gained a Legal & Business degree from Liverpool University, followed by completing her GDL at the Chester College of Law, before finally studying for an LPC at Manchester College of Law in 2010.

Amy is somewhat of a fitness fanatic spending most of her spare time toning up in the gym. She completes three spinning classes per week, as well as an abs blast, circuit training and body combat! To help her through her intense workouts Amy often has in mind a quote by the late Audrey Hepburn: “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible!”  But the fitness doesn’t stop there! Amy also enjoys swimming three times a week and when she was younger she used to swim for her home town – Glossop! When Amy stopped swimming competitively, she worked as a lifeguard and swimming teacher before going to university.

Another passion of Amy’s is the horse racing. When she was younger she used attend a number of point to point races but now she much prefers to go to Aintree or Chester as it means she has an opportunity to get dressed up! Every year Amy goes to the Grand National at Aintree as well as the mid-summer and finale at Chester.
