Why are we Leaders?

Who are we?

James Murray Solicitors is one of the most successful law firms in the  North West. We specialise in the major areas of law where leading techniques of great case preparation, and persuasive court advocacy are required. These  include the criminal courts, civil disputes, personal injury compensation claims and family and divorce services.

Founded in March 1991 in Bootle, Merseyside, we quickly established a trusted reputation in the local community so that, on word of mouth recommendations only we became one close to the fastest growing law firm in the North West.

Jim Murray, talks about this:

 “I confess that there was a certain amount of exhilaration when people talked about our self-assurance in the courts and how, in getting results, we could think outside the box…”

We have grown a large team of lawyers, experts in their fields, who are experienced in dealing with everything from the most straightforward to the most complex legal cases.

Our solicitors promise not to baffle you with legal jargon and guarantee to offer professional, friendly and hassle-free advice, whatever your situation.

Jim Murray, founder and senior partner, said:

“We understand that seeking legal advice can be a daunting experience for many people.  At James Murray solicitors we aim to make your involvement with us as stress free as possible.

“Whether you need legal representation in a criminal court, help following the breakdown of a marriage or are seeking compensation following a road accident, our experts promise to offer you the best professional and honest advice available.

“We realise that happy and satisfied clients are the secret to our success as a business and we are committed to securing the best result for every client, every time.”

Quality & Commitment

James Murray Solicitors is rare among the country’s law firms in holding the three major quality awards that measure a law firm’s commitment to great management of cases, training of staff and legal procedures.

If you’re searching for a law firm, you have to consider:

  • Effectiveness

Generally, people believe that hiring one professional is about the same as the next professional. Regretfully, this is not the real world. Tales abound with mistakes being made in all the professions, and law is no exception.

However, even when things run as they should, there can be a difference in the ‘added value’ a law firm can offer.

For instance:

  • Were you properly prepared for a court appearance being told exactly what would happen there?
  • Were you taken through every word of the other side’s evidence so that there were no surprises?
  • Did you feel that everything that could have been said on your behalf was mentioned to your satisfaction?   etc etc

We are concerned about all aspect of doing an exceptional job for our clients.

  • Cost

If you are a paying client, you want good value for money. Contact us for details of our rates and payment options.

If you are a Legally Aided client (and we’ll always check your eligibility) you still need to be sure your case is getting the attention it deserves.

  • Speed

Time is always a factor.
We know that your legal case is likely to be one of the most important things going on in your life and you don’t want it to last any longer than it needs to.

We keep the emphasis on the final result and managing the speed of all issued within our control.
We also keep the pressure on the other side to move as swiftly as possible.

  • Communication

Get in touch with us. You’ll find it’s very easy.
We put a lot of value on having human beings on the phone and on prioritising your calls.

If you are a new client, you can drop in ‘on spec’ and we’ll have someone see you, straight away.
If you want to be sure, make an appointment – we won’t make you wait forever.
We have a large team in all legal areas so we are accessible and contactable. Our easy to remember number 0151 933 3333 is a 24/7 contact number for our team dealing with out of hours emergencies.
