John Das


John has over 22 years’ experience in all aspects of asbestos and personal injury cases. He is one of only 32 solicitors in the UK to be awarded national accreditation as an asbestos disease specialist by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).

After working with asbestos-related cases for some time, John set up East Midlands Asbestos Support Services (EMASS), a voluntary support group to help asbestos-related disease sufferers and their families.

Our standards of service, dedication to our clients and numerous successes have allowed us to grow as a firm in recent years and we have earned a respected reputation that has enabled us to serve the local, national and even international community.
