Melloney ’s professional biography

Her specialist expertise is in difficult lung cancer cases.

Melloney manages complex and high value asbestos disease claims and has represented clients from a wide range of trades and occupations all over the country. She has also successfully pursued claims for individuals who have suffered asbestos-related disease after being exposed to asbestos dust indirectly, from asbestos dust on the clothing of a relative or from living near an asbestos factory.

Melloney’s dedication to making a difference to the lives of those affected by asbestos is reflected in her commitment to achieve the best outcome for her clients, obtaining lifetime settlements where possible, provision for future malignancy, and justice for the sufferer or their bereaved family. She succeeds in strongly contested and evidentially difficult cases, undeterred by obstructive defendants, through her careful research, persistence and hard work.

Where an immediate settlement may not compensate fully for a future diagnosis of malignant asbestos disease, Melloney protects the claimant’s right to return to court for additional compensation by securing a provisional damages award.

“I would like to thank Mrs Harbutt for all her determination, warmth and good humour which made the whole thing less stressful.”

"I can't thank your team enough. You were so professional in everything you did for me. Melloney was so patient with me at every stage, as I couldn't always think straight. I would certainly recommend you highly."

Melloney is an active charity fundraiser and raises awareness of the dangers of asbestos and the plight of its victims by writing articles and compiling monthly news alerts for healthcare and medical professionals.

She is an accredited Senior Litigator and Asbestos Disease Specialist with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and is a member of the Law Society.

“Melloney has been very clear and concise in all my dealings with her and has helped me through what has been a traumatic time. I cannot speak too highly of her.”

“Melloney has a friendly and approachable manner and was always very responsive to any queries. My impression of her is that she is very efficient and reliable and has a level of expertise in the subject that inspires confidence. I would recommend her to anyone”.

“I wanted to write and thank you, personally for what you’ve done to expedite this. Words cannot express how grateful I am that we will now have finance available to assist with my dad’s end of life care, when the time comes… I feel blessed that you have been our guardian angel through this trying process”

"My father, my siblings and I are incredibly grateful to Melloney for her personal, proactive and rapid assistance in conducting this claim. She has been kind, empathetic and caring throughout."

Melloney ’s accreditations

"I would not hesitate to fully recommend their services"
After my diagnosis and starting my treatment for asbestosis I chose the services of Boyes Turner LLP to help me and my family through the claim system. I had the good fortune to be introduced to Melloney Harbutt as my lead solicitor. At a time when I least wanted additional stress and anxiety, her clear compassionate, honest legal knowledge and personal guidance prevailed throughout.  
"Extreme kindness, understanding & efficiency"
A stressful situation has been dealt with extreme kindness, understanding & efficiency making the process as painless as possible. I can't thank you enough for your help. 
"The final result was very satisfactory"
After much hesitation regarding making a claim and speaking to HASAG. I found Boyes Turner one of HASAG's approved solicitors, I met Melloney who explained the process in plain English, and we started the ball rolling, some of the reports were difficult to come to terms with, but all through the process Melloney was supportive and understanding. As there were multiple parties involved the process took some time which was frustrating, but the final result was very satisfactory.
"We couldn’t have wished for better service"
 The efficiency and speed in which you dealt with the matter was impressive and we couldn’t have wished for better service.  I certainly would have no hesitation in recommending your company should the opportunity arise.”
