What are you looking for?

Welfare Benefits Solicitors

Unlike most law firms, Hugh James has a specialist and highly regarded in-house Welfare Benefits team for over 20 years. We recognise the importance of providing a holistic service to our clients and that difficulties regarding disability &/or finances can arise at an early stage.

The firm runs multiple pro bono projects involving the Welfare Benefits department. It has provided free services to persons referred by specific charities, including national Headway & local groups.

Welfare benefits can help you financially should you suffer a serious personal injury and be unable to work as a result. You may also be entitled to them if you have not been injured, depending on your circumstances.

It is not something most of us think about, but were you to suffer a serious personal injury that affected your ability to work, how would this affect your financial situation, and would you be able to cope?

Key contact

Peter Renshaw is the head of our highly regarded Welfare Benefits Department, which has been in existence since the establishment of Potter Rees Dolan Solicitors.
