Wanstalls Solicitors was set up by Ian Wanstall and has now amalgamated with the much larger practice of DMA Law. Ian is now part of the team of expert personal injury lawyers at DMA Law and continues to operate from the former Wanstalls office in Durham. As well as our Durham office we also have offices in Darlington, Sunderland, Peterlee and Hartlepool.

Ian has been a qualified solicitor for more than 20 years and throughout that time has only undertaken personal injury claims. For many years Ian was a partner and head of personal injury in a large city centre firm.

In setting up Wanstalls, Ian wanted to create a specialist firm dealing only with personal injury claims. The amalgamation with DMA Law means that Ian can offer a much broader range of legal services to clients whilst still enabling Ian to do the part of his job that he has always enjoyed most, dealing with clients and handling their claims.

How are we different? In a word – Communication!

One of the most common complaints by those who use personal injury solicitors is that there is a lack of communication. This can either be the solicitor failing to keep their client updated on their claim or that the client cannot speak to the solicitor when they wish to.

At DMA Law we are different and recognise the importance of communication with our clients. When you are a client of DMA Law you will have  direct contact with the solicitor who is personally dealing with your claim. When you call us you can speak directly to the solicitor dealing with your claim who will be able to deal with any query you have straight away.

You will also decide how we communicate with you and whether you prefer to be contacted by telephone, email, text or by letter. Whatever your preferred means of communication we will keep you updated as your claim progresses.

We pride ourselves on providing a traditional level of service to our clients in a modern world. In order to do this, we rely heavily on technology to provide an efficient service to our clients. We are friendly, knowledgeable, approachable and efficient. We value each and every one of our clients and put them at the centre of everything we do.
