We are an innovative, experienced and growing legal practice that serves both businesses and the general public in a variety of legal matters. Setup in 2002, by Directors Graeme Hughes and Nigel Jenkins, the firm has established itself as a provider of quality advice and service.
Who We AreHughes Jenkins Solicitors was established by Graeme Hughes and Nigel Jenkins, who had worked together at large, national practices. When forming the firm the service they wanted to provide was ‘big-city advice at high street cost’, bringing their expertise to the local area surrounding Aberdare.
Almost 15 years on we have grown considerably and now operate from two branches, opening a Blackwood office in 2013, and provide a vast number of services to our varied client base.
We encourage an open and friendly working environment as we feel this feeds through to our relationships with our clients.
What We DoWe handle a wide variety of matters for both members of the public and commercial clients. Our staff offer practical advice and communicate this in clear language so that, throughout a transaction, clients have a clear sense of the direction their matter is heading in.
Whether it is for conveyancing services or a probate matter, a contractual dispute or an issue relating to land, we understand the importance of each individual matter and always work to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients.
Ultimately we want to build lasting relationships with our clients and our focus is on giving the high quality service that will ensure this.
