I instructed Bellamy Forde of MW Solicitors in relation to my claim against Staffordshire Police arising out of some serious police misconduct which resulted in my false conviction and in me serving a very long time in prison. When I was acquitted some years ago, I instructed a number of firms of solicitors to pursue claims of misfeasance in public office and misfeasance against the police force. Those firms either did not know how to pursue the claims or what claims should be pursued. Eventually, a barrister recommended me to approach Bellamy which I did. While the other solicitors I instructed took around 5 years after which time I had reached the inevitable conclusion that they were incapable of taking my case forward, Bellamy was able to take my case and achieve a substantial sum of settlement for me within 12 months of me instructing him.
From the very outset, he was very clear in his advice to me. His knowledge of my case and of the law provided me with the confidence that I would succeed in my case and I am very happy with the settlement that I achieved. I would highly recommend Bellamy to anybody looking to pursue a claim against the police or public authority.
Unbelievable service with high levels of detail and accuracy. I felt safe in the hands of this outstanding company and both Pam and Martha most definitely had my back. You feel like a person and not a number which is so important. Highly recommend this excellent team!
Specialist legal support given to a bereaved family for a protracted and complex inquest involving a number of interested parties, including the involved NHS partnership trust. Clare Evans, Solicitor (Fulham practice), represented the family throughout and identified counsel for advocacy at the 2 week jury-led inquest. We found Clare to be a skilled and strategic negotiator, with a wealth of experience in state-related deaths. Clare has great inter-personal skills and a compassionate understanding, whilst handling the most traumatic and sensitive information. Clare manages expectations well from the outset and follows through the case to conclusion. As a family, simply the best review we can give is to say that our emotional load was made much more bearable by the excellent and professional practice provided by Clare and the team at MW Solicitors.
