We would like to extend huge congratulations to Tim Jacques for being ranked as a leading junior in the latest publication of Legal500 for Personal Injury.
Tim was recognised because “he has great empathy with clients, and is highly effective before a Court.” This is a fantastic reference to have received and proves Tim has the qualities and skills that are required to settle clients’ anxieties and help guide them through such difficult times whilst also being able to represent their interests in Court brilliantly.
Tim’s Personal Injury practice includes all manner of types of cases including occupier’s liability, employer’s liability, and claims against local and highway authorities.
