  • Money owed to you, or claims made against you for money owing that you want to dispute

Then our specialists can help.

What Happens in a Civil Dispute Case?

While bringing disputes to a conclusion through discussion and mediation is often the best result for everyone involved, sometimes cases need to go to court, and we can support you through this. We can help you whether you want to bring or defend a claim through the courts.

Many people simply cannot afford thousands of pounds to take a case all the way to court or defend a case that is going to court. However, quite often some initial advice just to give you an idea of where you stand or to point you in the right direction can be a big help to resolve your problem.

I would highly recommend Howells to anyone looking for a solicitor in the local area."

Wills Client

"I went to Howells for representation in a family matter. I was very anxious and felt overwhelmed with it all but Liz Forrest was amazing from beginning to end! She was very professional, knowledgeable and meticulous with her work and was extremely approachable and friendly. She is honest and kept me informed at every stage. Liz made the most stressful time of my life bearable and I would recommend her to anyone going through family court. The staff at Howells were also brilliant - very welcoming, friendly and approachable."

[Emma's] communication is EXCELLENT, knowledge of the file and the selling process excellent. I couldn't have been happier and I can tell she genuinely cares about her clients and doing the very best possible. I look forward to passing over any Sales or Purchases in the future.

Conveyancing Client

We found the friendly nature and the advice we received well worth the fee. With that in mind we decided to return to Howells once again. We can not put our gratitude into words (all legal services owe Howells a depth of gratitude for restoring that faith) My son will forever be very grateful for Howells, believing in his struggle though life due to his disabilities. During his consultations there was no suggestion of disgust or personal opinions present just professional people helping a child in need of help.
