JMK Solicitors have once again retained their No.1 position as Northern Ireland’s leading personal injury law firm for the sixth consecutive year, handling more cases locally than any other legal firm.
The Belfast and Newry-based legal firm were instructed in a record 1,625 separate personal injury cases registered in 2019, a 5% growth on the previous year and nearly more than treble as many cases as its nearest competitor, according to recent figures obtained from the Compensation Recovery Unit, a division of the Department for Communities.
The company credited its continued growth to a programme of investment in staff, technology, brand awareness and exclusive focus on personal injury and road traffic claims. Overall staff numbers have grown to 68, which has more than doubled over the last four years.
Maurece Hutchinson, JMK Solicitors Managing Director, said:
“We are delighted to announce that for a sixth consecutive year JMK Solicitors remain NI’s No.1 personal injury firm. We are unique in that we only handle personal injury and road traffic accident claims.

We continue to invest heavily in training to ensure we can continue to help every client fully and fairly recover their losses with the least possible stress. We are very proud that 98.6% our clients would recommend JMK Solicitors to a friend.”
