Paul Hajek

Paul is the Principal of Clutton Cox Solicitors in Chipping Sodbury, near Yate, South Gloucestershire. He has been running the firm since 1985 and has been a Solicitor for 31 years.

Paul was born in Belfast in 1956, to a Croat father and Irish Catholic mother. Paul feels that now as a sole practitioner he has been an oppressed minority virtually all his life. Sports mad, he was educated at St. Brendan’s College Bristol the top rugby school in the country and spent 6 happy seasons at Bath Rugby Club in the mid seventies to early eighties. When still not quite out to pasture, he joined Yate Athletic Club and enjoyed dipping under 54 seconds for 400 metres in his thirties. Under 54 minutes might be more challenging now!

Earliest Memory:

Shutters on my Pram.

Favourite Metaphor:

Without a shadow of a doubt

Favourite Comedian:

Aristophanes: Beat Chaucer in the ribald stakes by about 3000 years, and took political satire to a new level. The father of situation comedy . If you ever thought you lived in cloud cuckoo land, you now know who created the term.

Favourite Urban Myth:

On tour with Bath Rugby Club in Florida 1981, when Gareth Chilcott (“Coochie”) the Bath, England and British Lion Prop was unceremoniously banished and chased out of the Magic Kingdom by Mickey Mouse for manhandling his “mousehood”. In reality, it was only mild finger-wagging by one of the chipmonks Chip or Dale for playfully squeezing his “undercarriage”. It was nevertheless one of the funniest incidents, I have ever witnessed.
