Nobody argues more forcefully or more ably on behalf of their clients.

Simon is a Senior Chartered Legal Executive within the firm’s Personal Injury team and is now in his 20th year at Ison Harrison. He welcomes any personal injury claim large or small. Notable sizable cases include the “iron man” case as set out in the link below.

Simon likes to give the personal touch and his attention to detail is exceptional. He has the ability to quickly identify the core issues of a case; apply the law; identify what evidence is required to prove the key issues of a case; he is not afraid to speculate and his negotiating skills are second to none.

He has lost count of the times he has taken over cases where clients have been dis-satisfied with their former Solicitors with complaints such as “they never call me back and we wait weeks/months for a reply”.

The last thing a seriously injured client wants is their case to be dealt with by a junior fee earner who is juggling a case load in the hundreds. In the personal injury department we all have manageable case loads. By doing this we can focus entirely on each individual case; be pro-active rather than reactive; be aggressive when needed and never take our eye of the ball.     

You will be our client and not just a number; you will be looked after rather than fobbed off and you will achieve a good or reasonable settlement rather than an under settlement.

In his spare time Simon likes to watch Leeds United (on the up) and watch his favorite band The Slow Readers Club (also on the up). His wife is in the Ambulance service (she drives Ambulances; some say he chase them). He is the proud father of two girls but despite his best efforts they have not seen Leeds United or The Slow Readers Club.

If you have any personal injury claim or wish to discuss transferring your case from you present Solicitor. Please telephone Simon Helliwell for a free consultation. He will be glad to hear from you.
