Michele Benjamin - Chartered Legal Executive

Michele is a chartered legal executive in our Medical Negligence Express Resolution team (ERT).

Michele completed her law degree in 2008 and became a FCILEx (Fellow under the CILEx regulations) in May 2018.

Having joined the firm in 2016 as part of the Personal Injury team, Michele went on to complete a placement handling Asbestos-related disease claims followed by a placement in the Medical Negligence department. It was from here that she was set on specialising in this area of law and was offered a permanent position within the team shortly after.

Michele is strong willed, determined and has a robust work ethic. She takes great pride in fighting her client’s corner and ensuring they get the justice they deserve as promptly as possible.

Recent case highlights include:

  • obtaining a settlement for a man who experienced internal bleeding after a hormone treatment was incorrectly injected into his muscle
  • securing compensation for a man who collapsed after he was given the wrong medication.

One of her client’s recently commented:

“So far Michele has been excellent. She has kept us up to date with our case on a regular basis, answered any questions that we have and clearly explains them.”

Michele is an active member of the firm’s Diversion and Inclusion Committee, a group that was established to promote and celebrate diversity and inclusion within our community.

Outside of work, she enjoys yoga, reading, music and is obsessed with anything food related!
