Meet Our Experts

Access Legal is involved with individuals and their families in their hour of greatest need, often in the most tragic of circumstances. People in that situation often see the law as a confusing barrier rather than something that can help them.

We call our service Access Legal because that's precisely what we aim to do - give you easy access to the law through friendly, approachable but knowledgeable people who will give you the right advice and fight hard for you if needs be.

Being part of Shoosmiths (the Legal Week Law Firm of the Year 2015) means we have access to the considerable physical, intellectual and international resources and connections of our UK-wide parent firm if they are needed.

Access Legal’s experts are on your side. Proper lawyers who are caring, fearless and really understand the problems you face. Legal experts who treasure the values of openness and honesty.

We are proud of what we do at Access Legal because we know that our actions make a real difference to someone’s life. Effective legal advice delivered on a personal basis by best-in-class lawyers who present solutions in terms and language that people can comprehend.
