About Hewitts Solicitors
Hewitts has served the local community for more than 60 years. As one of the longest established law firms in the North East, our partners, consultants and associates work together in dedicated legal teams.
We have endeavoured to provide as much information as possible on our website about the areas of law we cover.
However, if you cannot find what you are looking for please do not hesitate to contact your nearest branch or our head office in Bishop Auckland on 01388 604691.
Our team will be delighted to advise you further.
Our Promise To You
Many people are reluctant to speak to solicitors for a number of reasons but unnecessary delays can make the situation worse.
As part of Hewitts commitment to our clients, we offer a free initial telephone consultation to discuss your problem and explain where you stand. If we believe legal proceedings are not in your best interests we will advise you not to go ahead. If you have a case, and wish to proceed, we will give you a clear quote of the cost. And if your case is eligible for legal aid you can leave the arrangements to us.
