Hassall Law began to provide our clients with a traditional legal service where each client would know who they are dealing with throughout their time with us. A service as good as will be found in London or better in the legal subjects in which we operate. We aim that our standards should be significantly high and we are proud to be a Lexcel approved practice.
Our directors have worked together for years and share the same dream of legal excellence and client care. Many of our clients have followed us for generations. We are based in South Devon where we all know our area well, as well as the law in which we operate.
