Quotes

We were devastated with the news that my husband had mesothelioma. We chose Hugh James solicitors to handle his claim. We couldn't have been more pleased with Lucy Strong and Richard Green who represented us. They gave us such professional expertise and knowledgeable advice. Sadly, whilst waiting for the claim to finalise, my husband died and without Lucy and Richards dedication and understanding I don't know what I would have done. Lucy kept me informed via letters and telephone calls every step of the way. The claim has come to a satisfactory completion of which I'm very pleased. Thank you so much for your help and advice.
