Quotes

I was recommended to consult Hugh James following a diagnosis of mesothelioma in August 2018. They visited us in September 2018 and agreed i had a claim of asbestos exposure by a previous employer. At all times we have experienced nothing but care, consideration and sympathy. We have been kept fully informed at all stages. We would not hesitate to recommend Hugh James to anybody else in a similar situation.
