Latest Podcast

Vernon Hadida, a senior partner at Thomas Dunton is delighted to be associated with Clive Bull on his Legal Hour phone-in programme on LBC radio.

During the live broadcast, Vernon is asked many interesting and varied questions from members of the public.

This provides a great opportunity to hear concerns and opinions from the general public and so keep in touch with how people view the legal profession, what the main issues are and how we can reach out and help.

The programme illustrates the need for the public to be able to ask questions on legal matters and as a result, Thomas Dunton now offer free talks in local libraries and to various other groups on a variety of legal subjects that affect us all, such as Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Inheritance Tax, Care Home fees. etc.
