Don’t worry about costs

We will not charge you to assess your case – this will be free. 

After that, there are many ways you can pursue a case without you having to pay the costs as the case proceeds, e.g. Public Funding (legal aid), Insurance, a No Win, No Fee Agreement.  We will discuss the options with you once we have completed the free initial assessment but if you want to know more now, please get in touch.

What our clients say

Catherine Mowat has been Deputy for our daughter since she was awarded compensation in late 2011. Catherine has continued the excellent service we received from her medico-legal colleague Paul Taylor who worked for 10 years to secure a settlement from the NHS in a complicated medical negligence claim. Catherine has provided a thoroughly professional service. From the outset she has communicated clearly, encouraged our questions, and explained the processes involved. Catherine is a very pleasant person and easy to deal with. Meetings are held at our house at times convenient to us.

Tees Law have been there for me whenever I have needed them and I have felt looked after and genuinely cared for throughout my time working with them. Their genuine concern and compassion when dealing with my case is fantastic, they have helped me through all aspects of the settlement and have worked hard to ensure I understand everything. I have never felt judged or embarrassed discussing intimate details of my case with them and they have really been there for me. I cannot express enough how I felt their genuine concern and compassion for me.

I have nothing but admiration for the work of Janine. Having never experienced anything like this before and being in the dark about the whole process I feel that Tees have been very supportive on a professional and personal level and have done their best to make me feel at ease during this difficult time.

Deciding to proceed with a medical negligence case was a very difficult decision, but from the moment I first contacted Tees, and spoke to David Gabell, he made me feel comfortable, I was given all the information, then the time to consider this, it was explained to me so I understood the legal process. Now, although nothing can ease the loss, I and my family can now start to move on. I would, and have already recommended Tees, and thank you again David for everything.

You are approachable and easy to talk to. You were always happy to explain the legal terms to me and acted in my best interest throughout. From our first meeting I knew I had done the right thing. You gave me the determination to go through with this and the courage to seek medical help after steering clear of doctors for over two years. When you took my case on I had an overwhelming sense of relief and the confirmation of what happened to me was very wrong.
