Nigel is the Principal of Hedley Solicitors and is a mature and experienced lawyer.
He is also a Higher Court Advocate and handles criminal cases from the police station right through to Crown Court and the Court of Appeal.
In addition to the Criminal Courts, Nigel has a wealth of experience in both the Civil Courts and Tribunals.
Working and living in the Blyth area for many years, Nigel understands the town, the people of the area and the issues they face. He offers a sympathetic approach to providing legal services and is happy to offer flexible appointments to suit the needs of his clients.
His experience in commercial law, employment matters, family and partnership cases, landlord and tenancy issues, civil litigation and wills and probate means that for many of his clients he has become their ‘family solicitor’: giving them confidence and support and providing a complete legal service.
Nigel also offers an HR service to his business and commercial clients.
Katy is the practice’s administrator, helping to ensure its effective and efficient operations.
With over 10 years of administrative experience, Katy has worked for Hedley Solicitors for almost 2 years, helping oversee and support the recent move to the new premises in Blyth town centre.
Like Nigel, Katy is also from the Blyth area and so has an affinity for the town and its people and is able to offer clients a friendly introduction to the practice, helping them to gain confidence in the legal service being provided.
Apart from supporting Nigel’s work, Katy is also involved in the production and preparation of various legal documents as well as helping to keep clients informed and up to date.
