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 the 2020 Legal 500 national guide to law firms.
Away from work, Richard is a family man, and he also enjoys cycling and painting, and is secretary of his local art group. He is a councillor on Ailsworth Parish Council.
