Harrogate-based law firm, Truth Legal, is marking five years in business by enhancing its personal injury offering following two new appointments.
A new senior solicitor, together with a specialist paralegal, have joined the ten-strong team at the firm.
Helen Beaumont has over 20 years’ legal experience and has joined the personal injury team at the firm’s offices at Princes Square, Harrogate. The firm also has virtual offices in York, Manchester and London.
Helen Beaumont has worked at law firms in Leeds, Harrogate and York. In a previous role, Helen helped secure £5m in damages for a client – a successful stockbroker who suffered life-changing injuries following a catastrophic road traffic accident.
Magdalena Ions has also joined the team as a legal assistant. Originally from Poland, Magdalena will work closely with Mirek Ksiezarek, who joined Truth Legal as a legal assistant in August 2014 and has been involved in providing legal advice to the Polish community in the UK since 2008.
Founded in 2012 in Harrogate by solicitor Andrew Gray, Truth Legal set out to be an ethical, tenacious and affordable law firm. It specialises in a number of areas including personal injury, clinical and professional negligence and employment law.
Andrew Gray said: “This is an exciting period of growth for the Truth Legal team and we are pleased to welcome Helen and Magdalena. Helen is an extremely experienced and tenacious solicitor. 2017 is a key year for us as we reached the five-year milestone and it’s a great achievement to further expand the team year on year.
“Magdalena will help provide invaluable support in offering a specialist service to the Polish community, an area in which we are building a particularly strong national reputation largely due to Mirek’s experience.
“Both Helen and Magdalena are great at advising clients and helping them to achieve the best possible outcomes in their individual cases.”
