James Legal - Hedon Road Branch

James Legal Solicitors in Hull provide quality advice to businesses and individuals, but we do it with a real difference. The fact is that stereotypically Solicitors have often been seen as unapproachable, stuffy, jargonistic and very expensive - Our mission is to turn that stereotype on its head. We offer the usual legal services: employment advice, litigation, business advice, buying or selling a property, commercial property, wills, trusts and much more. What you will find is a refreshing change is the way in which we provide legal advice. With free consultations, fixed price legal costs, flexible payments, legal support services and bundled legal services, to name but a few, we are sure you find complete transparency around the whole traditional "legal costs" mystery. "Getting to know you, getting to know all about you..." A nice tune but a well made point too. To properly advise you in your Businesses it helps to understand your business. Similarly to advise you individually its helps to get to know you, and likewise you to get to know us. So why not contact us to share a coffee with one of our team. Call it a "getting to know you meeting" or a free consultation, either way contact us for a chat. Professional Legal advice with large doses of common sense, understanding, practical and commercial advice.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

By providing a more dementia friendly service to our clients throughout our offices and all departments. By becoming a dementia friendly employer and being supportive of staff who are affected by these issues.  We will do this by attending a Dementia Friends information session and ensuring that our staff are all more aware of the problems encountered by those living with Dementia and being able to help them have a more valuable experience when visiting our offices and using our services.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Lack of understanding of the needs of those living with Dementia, and also the demands on their carers. We would like to overcome this by arranging awareness sessions for our staff. Time constraints in achieving this could be a challenge.
