Minal qualified as a Solicitor in 1997. She became a Partner in a West London Law firm in 2003, where she headed up the Personal Injury Department and worked alongside the Head of the Civil Litigation Department who acted for the Stephen Lawrence family in their fight for justice.

Minal is a Consultant Solicitor in the Personal Injury department. She specialises in high-value personal injury and clinical negligence claims, and over the years has helped hundreds of clients in securing substantial damages, including six figure settlements. She has an in-depth knowledge and experience in handling all types of injury claims including Employers Liability, Road Traffic Accidents, Public Liability Claims and Product Liability Claims. Minal also advises clients in other fields of dispute resolution including: Coroners Inquests, Contract disputes, Negligence claims, Chancery Litigation, Defamation, and Inheritance disputes. She is particularly skilled in dealing with cases involving catastrophic injuries, fatal accidents, brain and psychiatric injury cases. She adopts a practical approach to resolving cases where liability is strongly disputed. She has widely used ADR and mediation in the pre-trial settlement process and will litigate cases to trial where reasonable attempts at resolution fail.
Minal recognises that her clients often find the legal process a stressful experience and alleviates that by providing practical advice in a way which is easily understood. She is also a Senior Litigator member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and a member of the Civil Justice Section of the Law Society.
