Based in the Bristol office as part of the personal injury and accidents at work team, Melissa Aguirre-Calderin is a paralegal representing Thompsons’ clients across Wales and the South West.

Melissa works on drafting documents and arranging and attending meetings with specialist barristers. Within the team, Melissa also assists with claims involving a high degree of complexity.

For Melissa, the most rewarding thing about working for Thompsons is being there for clients when they need her the most and she knows, given Thompsons' commitment to only ever act for the injured and mistreated and never for employers or insurers, that she will be helping those who need her specialist help.

Outside of work, Melissa enjoys volunteering with St John Ambulance, running and travel.
