Court

Our Court department provides a wide range of Court services including accident claims, family law, litigation, debt recovery and criminal law.

ACCIDENT CLAIMS

If you have had an accident within the last three years, whether at work or as the driver or passenger of a motor vehicle or, if you have tripped, slipped or fallen and you believe that someone else may be at fault for your accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Insurance companies are notoriously difficult to deal with. No win, no fee claims companies such as those advertising on television often require you to pay an insurance premium or you may become liable for the other sides expenses in the event of an unsuccessful claim.

Our Court Solicitors can advise you fully with regard to the prospects of pursuing a successful claim, the evidence which will be required to prove your case and likely costs you will incur if you are unsuccessful. In most cases an insurance company will pay your expenses if you succeed in your claim.

We offer independent legal advice and if you decide to proceed with your claim, will investigate matters fully, obtain any necessary medical or other evidence and pursue your claim with the relevant insurance company through the courts with skill and professionalism.

CRIMINAL LAW

Have you been charged by police or are you about to appear in Court?

Facing criminal proceedings with all the power of the police and the state against you can be extremely daunting. Our court solicitors have many years experience representing individuals charged with criminal offences in the District and Sheriff Courts and instructing Counsel in the High Court. No matter how trivial or serious the charge, you can be assured that our Court Solicitors will give you full and frank advice about the possible consequences for you and defend you vigorously whatever charge you face.

DEBT RECOVERY

Does someone owe you money? Are you having trouble collecting what you are due?

Whether you are an individual or a business and you have not been paid money you are due, you can find yourself in difficult circumstances. Our Court Solicitors can advise you on the options open to you and what can be done to maximise the chances of a successful outcome. They will take you through the steps required, both in Court and afterwards, enforcing any decree granted to you.

If you are a business experiencing any ongoing problems with the level of your debtors our Court Solicitors can advise and assist you with practical measures to reduce the level and ease your cash flow.

FAMILY LAW

There is nothing more traumatic than a separation, particularly when there are children involved. Feelings and emotions run high and it is all to easy to find yourself locked into a confrontational attitude where incrimination rather than conciliation governs your actions. You will be getting advice from family and friends about what you should or shouldn’t say or do but every situation is different and the advice which you get may not be right for you and may make matters worse.

Our Court Solicitors will give you impartial advice on both your rights and your obligations in the event of a relationship breakdown. Their friendly and sympathetic manner will lead you through the minefield of decisions which you will require to take and make the process easier. By negotiating on your behalf, they will ensure that any settlement is reached in a fair and reasonable way whilst taking the pressure away from you.

If it is necessary for Court Proceedings to be raised they will guide you every step of the way to ensure the best possible outcome whilst minimising the inevitable stress and inconvenience to you.

If as a result of your separation a property needs to be sold or transferred or if you require to take independent financial advice, you will be referred to our in-house Financial Adviser who can give you the help and advice you need.

LITIGATION

There are many occasions and situations which may arise, often unexpectedly, and which lead you into dispute with another person. Very often the only way to resolve such a dispute is through the intervention of a Solicitor. Whether you are in a dispute with a neighbour, your employer, a Local Authority or public body; if someone had broken an agreement with you; if you have received faulty goods or inadequate services for which you have paid, then you should take legal advice without delay.

Our Court Solicitors will advise you fully with regard to your rights. They will do their utmost to assist you in resolving your dispute as amicably as possible and without the need for court action.

If your dispute cannot be resolved without going to court they will guide you through every step of the process, keeping you fully advised as to the prospects of success, the procedures to be followed, the time scales involved and the likely costs to you. With many years of experience in a wide range of areas our Court Solicitors can be relied upon to give you the best possible service and to achieve the best outcome for you.
