I am writing to thank you for successfully taking up my mum's case for medical neglect. 

At all stages you and your staff have advised and supported me so well, acted so professionally and been so thorough in progressing the case.

I just want to say how delighted I am with the service I have received from St Helens Law relating to my recent property purchase.

Leanne was not only professional and efficient, she was pleasant courteous, and went absolutely above and beyond.

As you know we moved house and had a baby at the same time, so it could have been quite stressful. Leanne was smashing. Please could you pass on my sincere thanks.

Welcome to St Helens Law.
We at St Helens Law will deliver, without compromise, a quality client-focused legal service by using modern technology and respecting the traditional values of the profession.

St Helens Law is a highly respected firm of solicitors offering a range of legal services to the community. We have experienced and dedicated staff at all levels, and our success in achieving our mission is demonstrated by the high number of clients who return to us again and again.

We can deal with most aspects of law for you.  If you cannot see what you need on our website, please give us a call and we will be happy to work with you to find a suitable solution or point you in the right direction if we cannot help.

If you are in the middle of a dispute over a will, or want to dispute a will, come and see one of our specialist solicitors for free initial advice. 

A lot of our clients may be aware that there has developed a practice on the part of some firms of solicitors to engage in paying third parties for the right to do work. Buying claims from garages and insurance brokers has been quite common and still goes on today despite it being banned by the profession last year.

Other firms engage in large scale advertising to draw clients in making rash promises of service and even more rash claims to expertise that some firms do not have. At St Helens Law we work solely by referral by others. Hopefully those others have had a good experience here and they will recommend others.

If you are a client that has had experience of our service and expertise please tell others. We are happy to receive recommendations from clients and even more happy to speak to their friends, relatives and colleagues.

You don't need an appointment to call and see us and we can be contacted by Facebook, telephone, email, or via this website.

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013

Are you aware that these regulations came into force on the 13th June 2014? They apply to the provision of services to individuals. 
The regulations make certain terms in a contract mandatory and will make contracts in some cases unenforceable against the individual if they are not included. This would be the case even if you have already provided the service. They simply won't be asked to pay if the matter goes to Court and the deposits (if any) paid would be reimbursable by you. 

Imagine providing a wedding breakfast and then being asked to repay the deposit and not getting paid! 
Imagine providing accountancy services and then being told that they are not paying! 

It affects nearly all of us. St Helens Law will for £450 plus VAT look at your terms and ensure that this will not happen to you!


Mediation – A Way of Leaving Something for the Beneficiaries

The number of wills that are now being contested seems to increase day by day. Once upon a time the prospect of being asked to argue over the content of a will was remote, but the public now are far more aware of what their rights are and more and more actions are being taken by beneficiaries - and some relatives who are not beneficiaries as well!

People are living longer and there are more issues around incapacity than there used to be. Testators make a will and then develop some form of incapacity from, say, dementia and then have their capacity to make that will challenged at a later date. 

The Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 has led to a lot of actions being launched by dependant spouses or children not provided for in their view under the terms of the will. 

The great difficulty facing litigators over arguing over a will is that the costs will eventually, on some basis, come out of the Estate. There are ways of minimising the risk by well-calculated Calderbank offers or by Part 36 Offers, but the Estate is at risk of being plundered by litigators leaving very little, if anything, for anyone to benefit from.
