I was recently presented with a false claim from a third party and therefore I looked for a competent solicitor to bring forward the facts about my case. Having looked at other local options and deciding they were not suitable I contacted Claire Hughes. My first impressions of Claire during my initial consultation were that she was very professional and knowledgeable. She clearly grasped how to address this situation and dealt with my matter quickly and efficiently, dismissing all unsubstantiated claims made against me.
I would like to express my thanks for a brilliant job, your hard work has been much appreciated, and we’re hugely impressed by your understanding of the technical issues of the case which I am certain was instrumental in undermining the other legal team.
Claire is one of those few people who has a natural flair and intuition for her chosen vocation. This couples with a sharp intellect and ability to communicate complex legal nuances in simple language. Claire encapsulated all of the above when summing up the Courts decision in my case, “Well that was a slamdunk with bells on”. Thank you for the very fast response to the trial and your kind words, help and support leading up to / during the trial.
