Sumiya is a paralegal in our Personal Injury team. She provides invaluable assistance to the Head of the Personal Injury Department on a variety of high value cases.
Sumiya always endeavours to provide a high quality service for the client, and ensures no detail is missed which could help clients obtain the maximum compensation to which they are entitled.
Sumiya is currently studying for the CILEx in Law and Practice, having always been fascinated by, and committed to, the law. She hopes to qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive with both invaluable experience and strong legal knowledge.
Having previously worked as a Defendant Personal Injury lawyer for a national law firm for 6 years, Sumiya switched to Claimant work and joined Bell Lax’s Personal Injury Department in July 2017.
Sumiya’s previous experience includes working across the intelligence team, catastrophic injury team, assisting in defending cases worth millions of pounds and handling her own case load of RTA cases both in and out of the Portal.
She now enjoys helping clients recover the compensation they deserve, and finds that having worked on the other side helps her to predict and defeat Defendant arguments on behalf of her client.
Outside of work Sumiya loves to spend time being a Mother to her daughter, travelling, and enjoying the great outdoors with her family.
