About Jim Hester

Having served for 10 years in the Royal Marines Commandos, retiring as a Major, Jim joined the Bar and Chambers with a wealth of practical experience which he brings to bear in his practice.

He works in all areas of Personal Injury work, but has specialist areas of industrial disease (with an especially busy noise-induced hearing loss practice), clinical negligence, admiralty court claims and claims involving military personnel.  Jim is client-focused, and seeks to engage with his instructing solicitors to ensure the best possible outcome for the mutual client.  He acts routinely on both multi-track and fast-track cases.

Outside of Chambers, Jim is kept busy by a young family and triathlon training, having recently completed Ironman UK for a second time.
