We are thrilled to be working in partnership with national law firm Hugh James, as they join Embrace’s 100 Club top tier.
Hugh James provides legal advice in many different areas to people harmed by crime. This could be about starting a claim for compensation after abuse or injury, writing a will or making arrangements for children.
Alan Collins Partner and Head of the Abuse team at Hugh James said “The team at Hugh James really care and they are passionate about helping their clients recover and move forward with their lives after the challenging times they have faced. The firm is delighted to be partnering with Embrace and making a difference for the people that the charity works with and supports. If any of the families or individuals accessing Embrace’s services need legal advice or just want to understand what options might be available to them, we would be only too happy to assist”.
