Sinead McCracken is a trainee solicitor at Burnetts.
Sinead McCracken joined Burnetts as a trainee solicitor in September 2017, after achieving a Distinction at Northumbria University in her Legal Practice Course.
Currently working within the Medical Negligence and Serious Injury team, she supports clients who have suffered serious birth injuries such as cerebral palsy.
Despite being a trainee solicitor Sinead already has more than five years’ experience working in the medical negligence and serious injury field, having spent time at niche serious injury firms in Manchester and Birmingham. Whilst with Thompsons Solicitors, she managed her own clinical negligence cases and was praised by the Legal 500 for her role in a high-value case involving a client who had suffered an amputation. During this time, she also volunteered for the charity Headway, which supports those with serious brain injuries.
A former pupil of William Howard School in Brampton, Sinead graduated with an Honours degree in History at The University of Liverpool before studying law at Northumbria University where she was awarded the Resolution prize for the highest mark in Family Law.
Outside of work, Sinead is very active and enjoys swimming, running and cycling. She loves to travel: speaks some French; has climbed mountains in the French Alps; and has travelled across Australia and North America.
As part of her solicitor training, Sinead will spend time with different teams in order to develop her knowledge of a variety of legal areas. She will qualify as a solicitor in September 2019.
