Minster Law have been providing personal injury support since 1996, when it was founded as Corries Solicitors.

Working closely with insurance companies allows Minster Law to offer excellent personal injury support to genuinely injured people without advertising and cold calling.

Minster Law are legal experts but the similarities to the competition end there. They focus on the way things should be done, rather than on the way things are done.
