At Devonalds Solicitors, we have experts who represent deceased persons at an inquest.
Our experts are able to offer you the care and advice you need during this difficult period. We are also able to conduct our own advocacy at the hearing, ensuring that we do not have to instruct a ‘stranger’ for the hearing itself.
We will explain the rules and timeline of likely events, cutting out the legal jargon so that you can understand the advice and the process as clearly as possible. We will ensure that your voice is heard during the Inquest and we will also advise you of any questions that you may feel you need to ask the Coroner to bring some form of closure to the tragic events that you may have recently gone through.
It is important to understand that an inquest is not a trial. We encourage you from the start to try and forget about the Court room dramas that are aired on television. The Inquest is not as daunting an experience as a criminal case and no wigs will be worn by the parties. It is also important to understand that the coroner's role is not to attribute blame for the unfortunate death. The Coroner will take into account all of the information surrounding your loved one’s death and look at the acts of others that could be relevant to the cause of death.
We will ensure that you receive compassionate advice from our experts here at Devonalds and we have every intention of building a confident, long lasting relationship with you and your family.
