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.
