Virginia Dean

What I do

I am a Legal Clerk in the Personal Injury team assisting David Clark, the Department Head and running my own case load dealing with a variety of personal injury claims including trips and slips, industrial disease, accidents at work and accidents abroad. I also travel to other offices to take instructions from new clients. 

A team player, always willing to help out, approachable, friendly, sociable, always up for a laugh and a gossip and more than happy to empty the goody drawer.

I live in Derby with my husband, teenage daughter, black Labrador and a maniac cat. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, eating out, cooking, walking the dog and singing. I am a member of Derby and Derbyshire Rock Choir and can often be found singing with the choir at different venues around Derby.

The Smith Partnership Derby office dealt with a personal injury claim for me and they were excellent from start to finish, the outcome was very good. Virginia Dean explained everything to me and kept me well informed, she was very thorough. I was very apprehensive about pursuing my claim after talking to some other legal firms, but I am glad I did. Virginia and the rest of the team at Smith Partnership put me at ease as soon as I made my first call to them, it was the best phone call I had made.

I would like to say on behalf of myself, husband and mum in law, how exceptional our experience has been with Virginia Dean following a very nasty dog bite my mum in law suffered. We were recommended to ask for legal help which Virginia was our first contact from day one until the final settlement. All the support and understanding that Virginia gave us as a family was beyond outstanding. Virginia was very informative on all issues and helped us to understand all what was happening, she worked tirelessly to ensure we had the right advice. Virginia went above and beyond in all areas including her empathy and understanding of the situation we found ourselves in. We thank you for all your support.
