Slater and Gordon are leading specialists at providing support to children and families affected by cerebral palsy. We have an award-winning team of lawyers with decades of experience in obtaining funding for and arranging life-changing rehabilitation and support arrangements.
As well as highly accredited lawyers, we also employ specialist midwives and nurses and work with the best independent experts in paediatrics, psychology, care, occupational therapy, education and care in order to ensure that the best outcomes are achieved every time.
We have an acknowledged national presence with skills and experience drawn from all around the country. Our presence in the North-East is growing exponentially led by Ben Gent, who is described in the Legal 500 as an excellent lawyer who cannot do enough for his clients and APIL Senior Litigator, John Lowther and supported nationally by Solicitor-Advocate Emma Doughty, who is a Law Society accredited expert in clinical litigation.
Through our local and national connections, we have skills and expertise that help us achieve the very best outcomes for our clients and we are very passionate about the work we do. We have repeatedly witnessed the difference that rehabilitation and support can make to a child’s life and wellbeing and to that of their families.
Our aim is always to obtain funding as early as possible, ensure the best therapy is obtained and seek the maximum level of support to help our clients thrive.
We are committed to access to justice and, due to our acknowledged expertise, are able to obtain legal aid, as well as undertake work on a ‘no win, no fee’ and, on occasion, pro-bono basis.
Slater and Gordon are a genuinely specialist law firm that advise individuals about their rights. We do not advise business. We advise people who have suffered injury through negligence as to how they can obtain the help they require (and fight to assist them in getting it!).
We also offer complimentary services in employment law, family matters, welfare benefits, wills, trusts, tax & probate and work with leading independent financial advisors.
We are happy to speak with families who want to discuss legal issues informally.
We would love to help.
