Personal injury law firm, Jefferies Solicitors, is celebrating its 21st birthday. The solicitors recently opened a new office in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, to serve the local community.
The company, which was set up by Michael Jefferies in November 1993, now has nearly 50 employees and a turnover of more than £4million. Jefferies Solicitors headquarters are based in Altrincham, Cheshire. Hanley is the firm’s first branch.
Prior to setting up the practice, Jefferies worked at Paris and Co Solicitors in Birmingham, where he specialised in motor racing and parachuting accidents. Bringing this experience to Jefferies Solicitors, the firm now specialises in personal injury and accidents, operating on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.
Jefferies Solicitors started to expand in 1997, to include Michelle Read, who still works at the law firm today. Solicitor Nina Ramsden followed in 2001, and now jointly manages the company with Michael Jefferies.
The practice has also set up Lawyers Medical Agency Limited, to source medical professionals to examine its clients, as well as Lawyers Rehabilitation Services, which helps lawyers to find rehabilitation treatment following an accident. Jefferies Solicitors was also one of the founding firms of Injury Lawyers 4U.
Jefferies Solicitors remains committed to its chosen charities – the firm has raised thousands of pounds for Headway and the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust over the years.
Michael Jefferies, managing director at Jefferies Solicitors, comments,
“21 years has flown by, and we have gone from strength to strength. There has been lots of positive change – from new offices to setting up support services for lawyers in the personal injury sector. It’s an exciting time for us, particularly with the opening of the new Hanley office – a key area for our business. We’re looking forward to many more successful years in the future.”
