Ian Williams - Legal Executive

Legal Specialities
The past eight years I have been working solely in Personal Injury matters. I regularly assist clients with road traffic accident claims, work place accidents, slip/trip claims and public liability claims, criminal injury compensation claims, industrial disease claims and medical negligence claims. I have great knowledge in using the Ministry of Justice Claims Portal for claims under the value of £25,000.00 and also have experience in dealing with higher value claims meaning I can assist clients with Fast Track and Multi-Track Claims.

I can also offer advice in general Civil Litigation matters such as boundary disputes, neighbour disputes, landlord/tenant issues and debt recovery.

I am also a fluent Welsh Speaker and can deal with the matter through the medium of Welsh.

Experience/working background
I started my legal career as a Personal Injury Paralegal in Liverpool in 2009 before taking up a similar role in Cardiff in January 2011 with Cordner Lewis Solicitors.

In April 2011 I then took up a similar role with Hugh James Solicitors. I became a team leader at Hugh James after only a year and qualified as a Charted Legal Executive on 28th January 2014.

I am from Caernarfon, North Wales originally and moved back home to take up a role as a Chartered Legal Executive at Allington Hughes Law in Llanrwst in their Civil Litigation, Dispute Resolution and Personal Injury Departments.

I joined the J W Hughes & Co team in November 2015.
