We are local Devon & Somerset injury lawyers. Our firm, Slee Blackwell Solicitors, celebrate its centenary in 2020 and is one of the region’s leading personal injury and medical negligence specialists. Over the years we have recovered millions of pounds of compensation for local clients.

Our team of specialist lawyers are based at our offices in Devon and Somerset, offering a personalised local service to victims of personal injury and medical accidents throughout the south west.

In 2019 our lawyers were nominated for no fewer than three separate awards at the national Personal Injury Awards, including the prestigious 'Claimant Personal Injury Team of the Year' and 'Clinical Negligence Lawyer of the Year'. 

Our expertise in personal injury law has been recognised by the influential directory The Legal 500 which ranks Slee Blackwell Solicitors among a small handful of specialist personal injury and medical negligence firms in the South West. this is what the 2017 edition had to say about us:

"Slee Blackwell has expertise in claims arising from sexual abuse and Animals Act cases, in particular injuries sustained in dog attacks. Other work undertaken includes cases involving employer’s liability and public liability claims. The ‘very professional’ practice provides ‘excellent’ service in a ‘personal manner’. Practice head James McNally is noted for his ‘in-depth knowledge’ of personal injury law. The practice’s work in cases involving animal attacks included advising a client whose lower lip had been partly bitten off by a dog, another client who suffered a gastrointestinal illness as a result of the medication prescribed to him to treat an infection caused by a dog bite, and another client who had been bitten by a dog when trying to protect her dog. Other key cases involved a hand injury sustained while operating machinery at work and a slipping accident injury."

We have also been awarded Lexcel accreditation by the Law Society’s for excellence in client care.
