A leading industrial injuries lawyer is to open a second Stoke-on-Trent office providing much needed jobs in Burslem town centre.
Ambitious Attwood Solicitors opened an office in St John’s Square, in the heart of Stoke-on-Trent’s Mother Town, in mid February.
The premises offer facilities including a “Law Lounge” where residents can call in and enjoy a free cup of coffee while receiving free legal advice in relaxing surroundings.
Meanwhile, Attwood Solicitors will be joined at the Burslem offices by audiologists Hear4U. The Stoke based solicitors’ practice has forged a UK wide reputation for taking on industrial hearing cases and offer free hearing tests to potential clients through Hear4U.
Ashley Attwood founded Attwood Solicitors in May 2005 and employed his first staff member when it moved to its office in Hartshill Road, Stoke a year later.
The practice now has 17 employees and hopes to take on 10 more people in the next 12 months.
“The expansion into Burslem is a very exciting move for us,” said Mr Attwood. “The public image of a solicitors practice can be somewhat old fashioned and stuffy. But, with our new offices and law lounge, we are creating a modern, welcoming, premises, where people feel able to come in and have a chat.
“We will continue to specialise in personal injury cases, but we will be happy to give free advice on any aspect of law and will recommend other solicitors to take on cases as necessary.
“The Law Lounge will also allow us to hold free advice events, where people can come in and get advice on a specific area of the law – such as matrimonial or employment law – from experts.”
“I am also pleased that we are taking on empty premises, providing employment and generating wealth in the centre of the historic town of Burslem.
The St John’s Square office was most recently home to Denry’s Restaurant.
Attwood Solicitors has won millions of pounds in compensation for clients and is best known for its work with victims of industrial deafness.
The company has held Hearing Days in towns and cities across the English Midlands and North West, and clients include pottery workers in Stoke-on-Trent, ship yard workers in Cumbria and truck builders in Cheshire.
Clients are offered a free hearing test and advice before being advised whether they should pursue a case.
