On the 22nd February, HPW lawyer Melanie Neale was presented to Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal last week, as a trustee of the Luton Citizens Advice Bureau.
The princess was in town to perform the official opening of the CAB’s new offices. She was shown around the new building. Melanie says that the CAB already sees 8000 people each year, and that the increase in demand had made the new building essential.
‘The staff at the CAB work so hard to try and meet their clients’ needs,’ Melanie says. ‘Over the past years, we have seen a dramatic increase in particular in concerns about debt, welfare, benefits, employment, family, immigration and other legal issues.
Charlotte Pegman, Managing Partner says ‘HPW are enthusiastic about looking beyond the legal view and becoming involved in the issues facing their clients. Working with organizations like the Citizens Advice Bureaux keeps us plugged into people’s everyday lives and helps us see their problems through their eyes rather than through the sometimes narrow focus of the law’
Melanie Neale also works with the CAB in Chelsea.
