Hedleys Solicitors is undergoing massive changes. We are making massive changes in its operation. Our customer feedback indicates that a centralised, dedicated customer services department that can handle your day-to-day case queries either by telephone or email would be a welcome addition to the practice. Well, it has happened. until we have the new telephony system fully in place, we have a temporary number to contact us on and a dedicated email where you can raise your queries. The system is being refined, but early tests report a massive improvement in customer relations and we know that this will be a welcome addition to our practice. The contact details are: telephone: 07516905476 Monday to Friday, 10.00 until 16.00; email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We hope that this will make your customer experience with us a smoother journey.

All living traditions need and are nourished by some degree of self-scrutiny and debate, and they are not undermined by it.  Indeed where they become fixed and immune from such self-scrutiny, they die.  Tradition is not a weight holding us down, but a tool for fresh discovery" Eamon Duffy- Professor of the History of Christianity at University of Cambridge, Cardinal Hume Memorial Lecture, St. Mary's Cathedral Newcastle 2003
