Gavin joined Seth Lovis & Co shortly after the firm was founded, having worked with Seth at a previous firm. His specialist legal areas are personal injury, military injury and occupational disease, with many years’ experience of successfully prosecuting personal injury claims and advising major insurance companies.
Showing great empathy with clients, Gavin has a sympathetic approach, allied with a determination to see the most difficult and protracted cases brought to successful resolution.
He has more than 20 years’ experience in dealing with high value and complex personal injury cases.
"On our first meeting, Gavin created empathy and trust. He was very considerate and patient when I became emotional whilst describing my experience of the accident and my injuries. He responded quickly to my communications and delivered what he had promised in terms of information and always contacted me on the days and time we had diarised. He is efficient and friendly and I never felt rushed. He has great communication skills and always checked that I had fully understood all the information and my options. Gavin will always be my first point of call should I have any need of a solicitor in the future." AD, Cornwall, Private Client
"My experience with using Gavin was very high and outstanding, I was always informed about what was happening and how the legal system works. I had a number of home visits and was treated with respect, If I needed to talk with my solicitor he would always phone me back in or out of hours on that day, I feel my solicitor listened to me as a person and fully understood my needs, As a result of my accident I am now disabled and feel my solicitor handled my case with care and fully understanding my needs, with his help I managed to win my case, I have now been able to buy my home and have it adapted to suit my disability and my family life. The one thing that I found was after my case was settled my solicitor still keeps in regular contact which I thought was kind." LL, Somerset, Private Client
"Gavin Hughes, my solicitor, is fantastic in every way. He has been so supportive while he has been working on my personal injury claim and I couldn't have asked for a better person to be dealing with my claim." C, Cheshire, Private Client
"From the outset Gavin was friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Including coming from London to Devon to see me! He listened to everything I said and used his great knowledge and judgement to present my claim in such a way that I received everything I was entitled to. He kept me up to date with phone calls, letters and emails and was always happy to speak to me if I called him! I have used Gavin twice now and recommended him to family and friends. Can't fault him at all." M, Devon, Private Client
