We offer a bespoke inquest support and legal representation service for bereaved people whose loved one has died in service or in connection with the Armed Forces. All too often bereaved families do not know that they are entitled to be legally represented at an inquest. They find themselves in the Coroner’s Court, unrepresented, facing the Ministry of Defence or other interested parties without the help, representation and support that they deserve. This may mean that the inquest does not investigate all of the issues that it ought to, or that lessons are not learned from the death.

We work closely with our expert friends at the charity INQUEST. We are members of the Inquest Lawyers Group. In this way we also ensure that military families can benefit from the experience of this expert community of lawyers and campaigners, and vice versa.

We are also able to offer some specialist psychological support in appropriate cases.
