Monica Kershaw

Clinical Negligence Solicitor

Monica’s friendly and approachable manner is always well received by clients and she enjoys being part of our Clinical Negligence team, where she has the flexibility to work independently on a variety of Cases.

Since qualifying as a Solicitor in 2016, Monica chose to specialise in Clinical Negligence as this area of law was of great interest to her, having previously practiced in Personal Injury, Vehicle Damage and Fraud.

During her time reading Law at Northumbria University, she was delighted to receive the ‘Honour’ award in recognition of her academic achievement whilst studying.

Away from work

Monica lives in Sunderland with her husband and little girl. When spare time arises, she loves being active and can often be found taking part in regular circuit training or fitness sessions. She also enjoys spending time catching up with her friends and family.

What music do you like – any specific genre or artists?

I’m a massive fan of country music so I would have to say Kenny Rogers, a legend who has written some absolute classics.

How would you describe yourself in 5 words?

Approachable, organised, hard-working, empathetic and adaptive.

What’s your favourite food?

My husband loves Indian food so we eat that quite a lot, but I’m a big Italian fan. My favourite dish is Gamberoni in garlic sauce.

What film or boxset would you recommend to others?

I do enjoy a good crime drama or thriller so probably something like Criminal Minds, NCIS or Luther.

Do you have a favourite book and why?

I like to read a real mix of books, from romance novels to thrillers, but Blood Orange by Harriet Tyce is a gripping story about a Criminal Barrister who has a toxic affair.

If you could go back in time, what advice would you give your younger self?

Not to worry about the future. You’ll end up where you are meant to be.
