We are a regional firm of solicitors established in 1986 offering a wide range of services to private and business clients. Over the years we evolved first into a partnership, then an LLP, then to our present limited company, TMJ Legal Services Ltd.

We have offices in Hartlepool, Peterlee, Durham, and Wingate and also offer appointments in Newcastle, so we are well placed to serve clients in the North East. We also welcome enquiries from further afield and can often run cases via telephone and email without the need for a face to face meeting. We have many clients who live away from the area but use us regularly because of our personal and consistent service.

The firm has many areas of expertise, and we are an accredited member firm of the Law Society Panels for Conveyancing Quality Scheme, and Family Law. We also have accredited experts in personal injury claims, employment, wills and probate, and elderly client work. Our firm has also been awarded the Lexcel Legal Practice Quality Mark, which is an accreditation from The Law Society of England and Wales recognising excellence within legal practices.

We offer fixed fees whenever possible, and Legal Aid is available for some matters. We also offer a free first interview to ensure that our quote is accurate.

Some facts about us:

We serve the North East from offices in Hartlepool, Durham, Peterlee and Wingate.

Our prices and costs are transparent.

If we do not deal with your area of work, we can refer you to a specialist firm.

While we offer a comprehensive service to our private clients, we also help those eligible for public funding (Legal Aid).

In addition to appointments at our Hartlepool, Durham, Peterlee and Wingate offices, we also offer appointments at 15 Riverside Studios, Amethyst Road, Newcastle Business Park, Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 7YL.
