Firstly, I want to thank you for all the hard work you have done over the past few years. You have been extremely helpful from day one and believed in the case. It's been stressful at times and you have been so supportive. Thank you for staying so diligent and for always following up with the defendant when it mattered the most. The case has finally been concluded with your hard work and consistency throughout the process. I'm not sure I would have had justice without you and your team taking on this case. Fran, you are an invaluable member of your team. You keep a positive attitude in challenging situations which I really appreciated. Thank you for always bringing great suggestions to the table. You always found a way to get things done - and done well. Your work ethic speaks for itself.

Client testimonial


We would highly recommend Hugh James Solicitors. We received excellent service, great communication and clear explanation throughout the claim from Fran Moore. They exceeded our expectations time and time again and guided us through the process in a professional manner, dealing with matters where their Legal expertise we believe made the difference.



Fran at Hugh James has been a pleasure to work with. It’s been a long case and Fran had to quickly pick my case up as we were on a time schedule due to me being with another firm first that closed down! Fran worked fast, she always kept me informed and any questions I had she always answered, explaining everything so I understood. Very professional and always available to answer phone calls and emails. Highly Recommend.



I cannot believe how skillfully you removed all the things that didn’t matter and uncovered the crux of our complaint; you did it layer by layer and back to the things that matter.  Whatever happens I am content that you will do your best for us.

My sister and I thank you Fran for all your help, without you we would not have been able to cope at the inquest as that was a really horrible time and we would not have been able to know what questions we could and could not answer. I wish you lots of happiness for the future and again thank you so very much.



Hugh James Solicitors gave us the legal advice we needed and they have remained extremely helpful throughout this complex and difficult process.



We would like to thank you so much for your hard work, support and assistance throughout this complicated case. We credit you with securing the interim funds which ultimately enabled us to go through a surrogacy journey which resulted in us having a baby, and then securing final settlement which has enabled us to commence our next surrogacy journey. An amazing job right from the off in proving the defendant’s breach of duty; continued throughout, with some amazing appointments especially of key experts and of a brilliant Counsel, all the way to the end with securing a level of settlement that exceeded our expectations. We could not have asked for better legal representation, which is high praise given our own association with the legal profession. So a MASSIVE thank you from all of our family.
