Independent Court of Protection Specialists

Independent, expert and responsive

Hugh Jones Solicitors is the largest firm of independent Court of Protection solicitors in the country.  Founded by Hugh Jones, a nationally recognised leader in the field with over 30 years’ experience we support vulnerable people, particularly those with a mental incapacity, their families and their advisers. We also advise Local Authorities and other firms of solicitors.  

We also offer expert private client services – wills, probate, estates and trusts and Lasting Powers of Attorney.

Hugh has brought together a caring, compassionate and skilled team who safeguard the welfare of our clients.  Our team of 47 includes many qualified lawyers and experienced professionals who provide a personal, friendly and cost effective service - lower cost because we are not part of a large firm with expensive overheads.

We were named in Legal 500 2017 as‘one of, if not the premier legal practices dealing with Court of Protection work and acting for those with compromised mental capacity in England and Wales’.
