Testimonials


“Huw is still my preferred Barrister, his passion for the job has not subsided in any way, in fact to this day he treats every case whether it be a straightforward public liability claim or one worth a million pounds with the same dedication and determination.”

“I have worked with Huw on a number of different cases over the last 10 years. His expert knowledge, attention to detail and great advocacy skills never cease to impress me.”

Personal Interests


Huw sadly realised at a very young age that he would never make a professional sportsman, having two left feet and no co-ordination. He is however a fanatical Welsh rugby fan and will happily talk about rugby at length with anyone who would care to listen.

Having been brought up in Hong Kong he has retained a keen interest in travel, and will gladly take instructions from anyone willing to send him to an exotic location, though will be more than happy to attend the District Registry at Hull County Court if needs must.
