From the first contact and throughout the processing of my asbestos claim, I found the staff very helpful, lucid, clear and considerate. The communication was prompt and precise. Hugh James presented my case in a legible way. I would highly recommend them.

Having very little to do with solicitors in the past, I was very grateful for Laurens relaxed and helpful way of guiding myself and family through the whole process of claiming compensation. Lauren was very respectful and sensitive when my husband passed away and kept us up to date with things as they progressed. Very good service from star to end and I would not hesitate in recommending Lauren or Hugh James.

Very professional and helpful, like a friend you could talk to. Acted very quickly on the case, easing any of Steve's worries. Always kept us up to date with the claim and came out to see us on many occasions. Nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend Hugh James.

Mr & Mrs Steven Coen-Smith


During an absolutely horrific time of our lives, when my Dad became rapidly ill from mesothelioma, it was such a relief to have Lauren on our side to help us make sense of the legal and financial implications of such an illness. I have only positive things to say about Lauren and Hugh James solicitors. You really did help us so much. The compensation has allowed us a peace of mind that when you're mourning the loss of a dearly loved family member, somehow they're still protecting you from the grave. Thank you for fighting our case for my Dad and us.

Client Testimonial


Our overall experience has been exceptional, from the way my father was dealt with before his death and subsequently myself from then onwards. The service and advice that we have received has been exceptional. It's a very hard and long process, but I was always updated with any ongoing issues. I would totally recommend Hugh James' services that they provide.
