About us

Big firm experience; small firm VALUES

Based in Cardiff, Hek Jones is a dynamic and modern law firm. While we have many years of experience in the industry, we pride ourselves on our ‘small firm’ flexibility & attentiveness. What we mean by this is that we provide a personalised and tailored service. We don’t merely push you from solicitor to solicitor or leave your calls go unanswered to various internal departments. We ensure that all of your needs are catered for in a fast and friendly way. Our service and attention-to-detail are two key reasons why we have a high retention rate amongst our clients. And, our clients are varied, to say the least. This includes national institutions, local business owners, property investors, residential house buyers and private wealth clients. We are very proud of our success records but our biggest achievement is will always be helping our clients to gain peace of mind or make that life changing decision that sees their life change for the better. 

When it comes to hiring a solicitor or legal expert, Hek Jones is a distinct contrast from the typical legal stereotype. How is this possible? The answer is simple; it's down to our ethos and people. Regardless of position or title, each and every member, brings a wealth of experience, knowledge, drive and tenacity to deliver a truly refreshing client service and rewarding outcome. In short, we "get the job done".

We make law simple and affordable for everyone. We'll be here when you need us the most.
