Coping with the loss of a loved one is a devastating and traumatic time under any circumstances but it can be made more distressing if there is uncertainty as to the cause of their death. The inquest team at Farleys has a wealth of experience in assisting families at this difficult time and will provide you with the professional support and advice you need.
If someone close to you has died in sudden, violent or unknown circumstances, the state may call for an inquest. If the death occurred in police or prison custody, an inquest will be required by law. An inquest is a fact-finding inquiry conducted by a coroner and may be the first or only opportunity for you to have your questions surrounding the death heard and answered.
We are proud to be recognised as leaders in this area of law. Our inquest lawyers regularly deal with high profile inquests and have strong links with specialist Barristers, coroners and the charity Inquest.
Our expertise in the area of inquest law is also recognised by the Legal Services Commission and as such, we are one of the few legal firms in the country with a franchise to conduct inquests under Legal Aid public funding. For more information about the cost of obtaining legal representation for inquests, please read our page on Funding for Inquests.
Our solicitors will do everything in our power to assist you at this extremely difficult time and to ensure the inquest delivers the answers you require, which may go some way to assisting you in dealing with your grief.
