Disputes & Claims

During a lifetime you will have to face many challenges and problems, some small and manageable, others life changing and possibly overwhelming. You may find that some disagreements escalate and you find yourself in the middle of a very stressful and troubling conflict. Hopefully you will be able to reach a resolution without the need for legal advice, but when this is not possible we can help and this can include representation in court proceedings if this becomes necessary.

There are many areas of your personal life where you may find yourself involved in a conflict:-

  • Property and building disputes
  • Clinical or medical negligence, including issues with hospitals, general practitioners, dentists, opticians, chiropractors, physiotherapists and other medical professionals
  • Consumer rights
  • Professional negligence claims relating to negligent advice from surveyors, accountants or other professionals
  • Inheritance, trust, and attorney disputes
  • Accident or personal injury, including trips and falls, criminal injuries, defective goods or contaminated food and motoring incidents from small value claims to larger more complex matters
  • Debt or debt recovery including consideration of payment plans if you are having difficulty meeting your obligations
  • Employment grievances
  • Plus a myriad of other issues too long to list
