Why did you join JMW?


JMW have had a fine reputation for many years and of the numerous personal injury practices in Manchester there are very few who have not only stood the test of time but have had their reputation grow like JMW. The addition of Joy Kingsley has raised the profile massively and these are exciting times for the firm.
