Following a summer of extensive restoration work, Weston-super-Mare’s Wards Solicitors celebrated the refurbishment of their Weston-super-Mare client facilities with an ‘open house’ event for local residents and businesses on 18th October. The new client suite includes on-site client parking, same-level disabled access, meeting and waiting rooms as well as a dedicated reception area.


Wards Solicitors’ Senior Partner, John Brentnall, said: “We’ve had offices on Boulevard, in Weston-super-Mare, for many years but have always struggled with the limitations that the Victorian building presented.  We decided it was time to respond to client requests and make things a little easier for them.  With many of our clients being elderly we wanted to make sure that our offices were totally accessible, ensuring that everyone could visit their legal specialist without having to worry about parking or getting into the building.  We were thrilled to be able to show people around our improved client facilities and are already noticing the difference it makes to our clients and their families.”


Wards Solicitors have issued an open invitation for people in the local, Weston-super-Mare area to ‘drop in’ to take a look at the new client area, and to arrange an appointment to see their local legal specialist.
