However a death arises, we know that coupled with the sense of loss and grief that you will be suffering, you will need a number of questions to be answered.

Solicitor - Civil Litigation

We are expert in exploring the issues that arise from deaths that occur while in police custody and some while being detained within the mental health system.  We feel privileged to have been instructed to receive instructions on behalf of bereaved families who seek reasons and explanations for the deaths of loved ones.

Ultimately, our work is directed by you, the family.

We understand that this will be a troubling time for you and your family and we are fortunate that our team of Lawyers have a great deal of experience working on behalf of bereaved families.  We will tailor our approach to be sympathetic to your needs and to ensure that no stone is left un-turned in the search for the answers that you seek.

Support at Inquest Hearings

We provide advice and assistance necessary representing you at appearances or attendance at a Coroner’s Court Hearing or at an Inquest.  If appropriate we can also assist you with preparing a claim for monetary compensation if you decide that is what you would like to explore.

We support the work of the charity INQUEST and our lawyers are members of the INQUEST Lawyers Group (ILG).
