Personal Injury Specialists
26-28 Thorpe Wood
Moons Solicitors is a specialist personal injury firm. We do not do any other kind of work, and we know what we are good at.
We believe solicitors should specialise. That is why you will not find us dabbling in work we can't do well. Personal injury claims are important, and can be the most important legal work you will ever need to be done. You get one chance to get the right support, the right rehabilitation and the right compensation.
Some solicitors will do a bit of everything and will offer to carry out personal injury work without specialising in it. Some solicitors will have a solicitor in charge of their personal injury work, but the actual work on your case is done by junior, sometimes unqualified staff. Some firms aren't solicitors at all, but are claims management companies or accident management firms - you can tell a real solicitor's firm by the Solicitors Regulation Authority digital badge at the bottom of this page.
We are a proper, expert personal injury solicitors. We are proud to hold the Law Society Personal Injury Accreditation quality mark.
We aim to get the best result for you, putting your recovery - whether it is your physical, mental or financial recovery - at the centre of what we do.
Richard is the owner of Moons Solicitors, and has specialised in personal injury claims on behalf of injured people for over 20 years. He is one of only two solicitors currently working in Peterborough to hold the Law Society Personal Injury Accreditation.
He set up Moons in April 2020 when leading Peterborough firm Hunt and Coombs, where he was a senior solicitor, decided to stop taking on new personal injury work.
He was born and grew up in Peterborough, and attended the University of Warwick and De Montfort University in Leicester. He qualified as a Legal Executive before going on to qualify as a Solicitor. He began work in Peterborough, spending five years at Buckles, before working for ten years at leading Cambridge firm Taylor Vinters, and then international firm Slater and Gordon when they took over Taylor Vinters' personal injury department. After a short time working independently through virtual firm Scott-Moncrieff and Associates, he moved to Hunt and Coombs where he worked for five years, before establishing Moons in 2020.
Richard has spent his entire career working for injured people, and has extensive experience of claims all the way from simple, straightforward injuries up to life-changing and fatal accidents. He has a special interest in claims involving psychiatric injuries and chronic pain disorders. He is a recommended lawyer in both the Legal 500 and the Chambers guides to lawyers and law firms.
Away from work, Richard is a family man, and he also enjoys cycling, football and painting, and is secretary of his local art group. He is a councillor on Ailsworth Parish Council.

He worked for Taylor Rose Law in Peterborough up until 2013 following which he worked for Helier Benn & Co in Stamford.
