Head of Practice Area - Serious Injuries
"After the accident, I didn’t know how to go on. Brethertons came in and helped me continue my life. They helped me with the emotional and financial side of things, and gave me reassurance everything would turn out well".
"I thought the legal process might be confusing, but it was a doddle because I knew I could trust the team at Brethertons.
They kept in touch regularly with updates and there was never an instance when I disagreed with what they advised me to do, because everything made perfect sense. I was in hospital for a long time, but now I live in adapted accommodation adjoining my parents’ house.
Jon Rees, made this huge thing such a laid back and easy experience, which was perfect as I could concentrate on getting fit and well with full trust that everything was being taken care of".
"From the time of my first meeting with Jon Rees while I was in hospital, he has been the most approachable, kindest and understanding person and remains so now. Nothing is too much trouble for him, I can contact him at any time on any matter and he keeps me 100% up to date with my ongoing case. I couldn’t wish for anyone better to be representing me."
"From the get go Brethertons have always been very professional. The team helped me and my family along the way even if things were difficult. I always knew what was going on with my case and trusted their advice. I was very impressed with Sian and how she advised and assisted me along with the support given from her throughout."
"Jon and his team have helped me right from the beginning when I was first injured right up to my case settling and beyond. I felt really looked after and kept up to date with my case at all times. They have also put me in touch with people who have helped me outside of my claim. I cannot thank Jon and his team enough for all they have done for me."
"I found Jon and his team to be very professional through the time we spent working together. They always had the focus on getting the most suitable result for myself and the primary focus was always on my health and wellbeing interests. When liaising with them they were always knowledgeable and polite, willing to offer their thoughts and listen to my concerns on any matter arising. It was a pleasure to work with Jon and his team. They would be my first port of call if I was ever to need legal help again."
"Jon Rees and the spinal injuries team at Brethertons, made such a difference to me when I was injured. The damage to my spinal cord in an accident at work was not picked up by a number of specialists who had treated me. The team’s experience in recognising that my injuries were much more significant than they appeared to be, and their help in getting me seen by the right medical professionals so that the damage to my spinal cord was correctly identified, enabling it to be properly managed has made such a huge difference for me and my family. That was every bit as important to me in the long term as the fact the team were able to settle my case for an amount reflecting how much my life has been affected by being injured. I am now much more positive about my future and I cannot thank the team enough for that."
"At the time of meeting Jon Rees I was paralysed from the neck down following a recent road traffic accident. Despite it being the most difficult time of my life I was quickly put at ease and reassured by his pleasant and professional manner. It was immediately apparent that he had a good understanding of spinal injuries and how they might impact my future.
At all times throughout the case I have been consulted, kept informed and able to speak to Jon or a member of his legal team. Despite the ongoing litigation I always felt that my physical and mental wellbeing were the main priority and I would happily recommend Jon Rees and his team."
"Thank you for the mountains you have all moved for me and for the ones we have to climb in the near future. I am sure we will reach the top with trust, dignity and most of all a happy ending.
"The Bretherton’s Serious Injury’s team make a formidable team. They personify what I wish all legal teams would apply; professionalism and compassion in equal measure, and as a group of people they provide a service which is more than simply a ‘sum of the parts’. They maintain an open brief and it is rare for one not to know what the other has done, which in a time of increasingly rapid communication and change is most impressive".
I work with many large firms of solicitors who specialise in Spinal cord injury claims and I have to say if any family member of mine was injured I would recommend Jon Rees and the team on their case. They are a caring team whereas a lot of the other companies seem to be just about winning the most money. Brethertons seem to go that extra mile……

A Chief Clerk
"I work for the Spinal Injuries Association charity as Peer Support Officer. I work with and support long term spinal cord injured patients and their families. I support those patients on many aspects of spinal cord injury. I am myself spinal cord injured so I relate very well to each person injured and the families. I trust and fully recommend the work that Jon Rees and his hard working team at Brethertons deliver. They provide an excellent service to clients who have cause to bring a claim for compensation after sustaining spinal cord injury. Jon and his colleagues deliver their expertise in a complex and difficult area of law. They support spinal cord injured patients through what is a daunting process at a time when they are coming to terms with having sustained a life changing injury.I’ve had close friends as well as patients that have needed the brilliant service, help and understanding Jon and his team provides. I see that Jon and the team never lose sight of the client and their needs ensuring that they are aware of and supported through the complexity of these claims at all times but without overwhelming them. I fully recommend the superb support and service given by Jon and his colleagues at Brethertons to those who have suffered spinal cord injuries. More than that though, working with Jon and his team is a fantastic pleasure for me.
