My overall experience with Hugh James was a positive one. My case, like many other things, was hindered due to the pandemic, but despite this I was always kept informed of the timescale and detail of each stage as and when they occurred and it was always easy to contact my solicitor when required. My solicitor, Matt Hale was excellent, he was always quick to respond to my emails and return my calls and he did a great job of explaining the intricacies of my claim in a way that I was able to fully understand.
