Comments from Clients:

Testimonial given to Legal 500 2024‘Excellent team to be used as expert witnesses in catastrophic injury cases where there is a lack of capacity and the Claimant is a protected person. Experienced in providing expert evidence to the court as to the fact of capacity and the likely costs of the deputy in the Court of Protection.’

Defendant firm comment 2023 'I have instructed Hugh Jones solicitors over a number of years to provide expert evidence in relation to deputyship claims in high value personal injury claims. I have always found them very responsive, highly professional and very skilled and knowledgeable in relation to deputyship issues.'

Defendant firm comment 2023 'I have used Hugh Jones solicitors for advice on Deputyship/Court of Protection costs for several years in high value clinical negligence claims.  The service is excellent as the solicitors and support staff are unfailingly helpful and knowledgeable and very easy to deal with.  They can be approached on any relevant topic and provide timely and appropriate advice.'

 Ian Gardiner – Hill Dickinson “I have used Hugh Jones solicitors for a number of years to prepare professional deputy reports for clinical negligence cases and have always found them to be excellent, both in terms of the content of their reports themselves and in their handling of the process. 

Anne-Louise Ferguson – NHS Wales “I have been assisted by Hugh Jones and his colleagues on Court of Protection matters in clinical negligence claims for many years. The team provides an excellent service; all staff having an excellent level of knowledge and commitment to providing a first class service. A special star mention goes to Margaret Christodoulou whose tactful and timely reminders to me when I have forgotten to provide instructions or papers have saved me from embarrassment or sanctions on a number of occasions”.
