Anne Luttman-Johnson is a solicitor working for Irwin Mitchell as a Client Support Manager. In 1984, while studying for her law degree, she sustained a spinal cord injury (T11 complete) in a car accident.
After qualifying as a solicitor she spent one year in private practice before moving to London to work for the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA). She spent 5 years with SIA developing their Legal Claims Service, and helping injured people and their families obtain specialist advice on claiming compensation. In 1995 she set up her own business as an expert witness, advising courts on the cost of disability. In 2004 she started her current job providing support to the firm’s spinal cord injured clients, advising on a wide range of issues, including housing, benefits, mobility, equipment needs, personal and social life. In addition she lectures on the cost of disability. In her spare time Anne enjoys travel and sailing, which she was able to combine when she sailed across the Atlantic in a tall ship in 2006 and from India to Singapore in 2014. She sings with a local choral society, and has been known to take to the stage in her village pantomimes.
