Personal Injury Law
Accidents on the road or at the work place are so commonplace nowadays. Anyone sustaining injury or loss as a result of the negligence of another is entitled to be properly compensated. People are sometimes tempted to accept quick settlements and the full value of their claim is often not realised. This firm will ensure that our clients receive maximum compensation in personal injury cases. We specialise in road traffic accidents and accidents at work.
The expense of taking legal proceedings can often put people off. From an initial interview we can often give an indication of the strength or weakness of the clients case. We can also advise if the client is eligible for Legal Aid. There is also the option of taking out Legal Costs Insurance. There are specialist companies who now provide legal costs cover. We will be happy to advise our clients of these options.
House/Land Sales and Purchases
Buying and selling property, especially residential property can often be an unnerving experience for many people, particularly for the first time buyer. With this in mind we will endeavour to make the process as straightforward and hassle free for clients as is possible. Our clients will be given detailed advice in plain English throughout the entire transaction. All the costs involved will be detailed in writing at the beginning of the transaction. Any queries regarding any matter will be dealt with promptly.
We have a wealth of experience in all aspects of employment law. This is a rapidly growing area of the law. If you are an employer you need to be aware of the changes in the law as they happen.

We can give advice on recruitment, contracts, disciplining or dismissing. We will guide you through the employment minefield.
If you are an employee you need to be aware of your rights. If you have been unfairly treated or dismissed by an employer we will be able to advise you on the remedies available to you. We have considerable experience in employment law and Industrial Tribunals and will assist clients in obtaining compensation if they have been unfairly treated or dismissed by their employer.
It is an alarming statistic but nowadays more than one in four marriages break down. There are many important issues to be dealt with when a marriage breaks down such as separations, divorce, maintenance and property issues, barring orders, custody of and contact with the children etc. It is often a difficult and traumatic time for the parties involved and we will ensure that all issues are dealt with in a sensitive and sensible manner and that our clients receive the best advice in relation to all of these issues.
Many people find themselves on the wrong end of the law for many reasons. It could be for something as minor as no television licence or a speeding summons or for something much more serious than that.
