The legal award is recognition of our commitment to delivering a consistently high quality service tailored to our clients’ specific needs. By providing direct lawyer contact and understanding our local community, we have happy clients who return to us time and again for their different legal requirements. Following the reduction in Legal Aid we have remained committed to promoting equal access to legal services by holding a free drop-in legal clinic every Saturday and by offering home visits to those who are unable to make the trip to our offices.
The Cardiff Life Awards are the most prestigious and tightly contested business awards in the city with the largest number of local companies taking part. The event celebrates corporate achievement, ambition and talent, championing businesses who are actively contributing towards ensuring Cardiff remains at the forefront of UK economic growth.
In 2019 J A Hughes were instructed in 1,712 new matters and of those, 66% were returning clients and 98% said they would use us again and recommend our services to others. You can read some independent testimonials here. We continue to invest in the future, and last year offered training contracts to four new law graduates and celebrated three of our established trainees becoming solicitors. We believe in rewarding hard work and dedication, and in the Autumn it was announced that Megan Jones will become a partner in the firm in Spring 2020. We also congratulated our partners, Duncan Kennedy and Sandra Horwood, and our legal secretary, Bernadette Watts who celebrated 30 years working at J A Hughes.
The winner of the Legal Award will be announced at a glittering ceremony on Thursday 19th March 2020 at Cardiff City Hall.
