Legal services in the NEYH

Whether you are seeking compensation for a personal injury or have suffered from an industrially related illness, need employment advice and representation or help with planning for the future, our full range of legal services can provide you with the help you need. The legal services package also provides a will writing service, power of attorney and living wills, as well as assisting with the day to day issues that life throws up such as moving house. We even offer a free 24 hour legal help line where members can receive a free half hour of advice on any non-work related matter.

Our panel solicitors offer a service to our members, which is second to none. Unite does not take a percentage of any damages or compensation awarded to you, meaning you benefit from 100 per cent of your settlement.

Many of these services are free or significantly discounted while others save you money. All our legal services are provided by solicitors who are experts in their field.
