Louise is a partner in our well-established Personal Injury team and has 20 years’ experience of dealing with all types of personal injury work.

I contacted Royds Withy King after a serious road traffic accident, and it proved to be one of the best decisions I ever made. As soon as I met Louise Hart, I knew that I was in safe hands. She took all the troubles off my shoulders by sorting out both medical and legal matters for me, in the most efficient and straightforward manner. She ensured the most positive outcome possible, and it was very gratifying to be supported by such a first rate solicitor and her team.

[Louise Hart was] very professional and friendly, I felt listened to and felt really supported when I was vulnerable, low and in pain. Money was obviously a big concern not being able to work, my solicitor managed to get me interim payments which stopped me getting into debt.
