Consultant - Solicitor
After two years working for a local law centre advising on welfare rights, Hugh trained with a Manchester based Trade Union firm, where he developed a specialism within the field of workplace accidents and industrial disease claims. He subsequently developed a strong reputation for fighting on behalf of those seriously injured through the negligence of employers.
For 17 years Hugh ran his own law firm, Hugh Joseph McCarthy Solicitors, based in Heaton Moor, Stockport. The firm specialised exclusively in Personal Injury and Employment Law. Throughout his time at the helm, Hugh dealt primarily with high value personal injury claims, arising out of workplace or road traffic accidents.
Hugh has dealt with numerous cases where the settlement exceeded one million pounds.
During this period all clients instructed Hugh and his team as a result of personal or professional recommendations.
Hugh is now Consultant at Clifford Johnston & Co, having joined in August 2016, and has already built up a busy caseload.
Hugh is also an accredited Civil and Commercial Mediator having trained with the Alternative Resolution Group approximately nine years ago.Arrange a Consultation
