The high level of professionalism shown by Bailey Davies of Hugh James was outstanding in settling my compensation claim. The preparation of my case was meticulous following a long and detailed period of research. Mr Davies respected me as a client but treated me as a “friend” as he guided me through the legal processes. I would recommend Bailey and Hugh James without reservation.

I cannot recommend Bailey Davies enough. Bailey was so very supportive as well as informative, kind, sensitive, and downright amazing throughout the entire claim process. At times it was extremely difficult to relive a difficult period in my father’s life. Bailey was more than a solicitor; he was our support and we will not forget all he has done for us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

I cannot thank Hugh James enough for the way my claim was handled. My praise goes especially to my solicitor, Bailey Davies. The claim was difficult at times as it involved a range of emotions but Bailey was always there to help me through. He is an exceptional solicitor with a very big heart. My family and I do not know what we would have done without him.

I am extremely grateful for the excellent service that has been provided by Bailey Davies and the team at Hugh James. He has done a fantastic job and my sisters and I are incredibly pleased with the way that my mother's claim has been handled and with the brilliant result that has been achieved. Hugh James have come up trumps and we would recommend that anyone who has suffered a blameworthy industrial injury or disease should contact Hugh James without hesitation. My father's COPD and chronic bronchitis had a terrible and frustrating effect on his health and his life in general. It was so sad and distressing to see him deteriorate from such a clever, active, and hands-on man to someone who was unable to get out of his chair without my mother's assistance. While he is no longer with us to enjoy the compensation, he would have been pleased to know that it will allow my mother, who has since been diagnosed with dementia, to pay off her mortgage and live in the comfort that comes with financial security.
