Finding the Right Help in the UK

It's a daunting task often to have to approach anyone about personal matters such as many legal issues tend to be about. So trying to gauge the best firms using the usual tactics such as word of mouth or online reviews is even more of a challenge. To help better understand how to research UK law firms and the information/reviews available to people on the web we've created a range of editorial articles related to many firms. Large or small, specialist or general:

Ian Mallon Solicitors Ltd: That snippet from Ian Mallon's site may sound good, but how can you independently check up on just how much expertise and experience actually exists within the practice you're looking at? Most legal professionals are signed up to a Law Society. For example, we saw a neg...


Asghar & Co Solicitors: They also weren't averse to listing some of the more common fees actually on their site. There was no such thread this time. On this occasion, it definitely seems to be the case with a range of experience including Mohammed Asghar and Fleur Ohonbamu who qualified in 1993 a...


Thorpe Wilson Ltd: Every firm should make this absolutely clear to you early on in your enquiries. The www.thorpewilson.com version currently shows nothing and all the typical typos versions we checked such as www.thorpwilson.co.uk were also not owned by the firm. So yes, despite the long case...


Allsop Durn Dearlove: Other tld variants or hyphenated (e.g. A lot of this sales jargon means nothing. For example, Allsop Durn have a good chunk of a page talking about their fees. The only issue would be perhaps mis-spelling the Alsop. allsop-durn) domains are unlikely to be common mistype...


MTA Solicitors LLP: Usually around 25%. The last thing you want to is mistype the name and end up giving your phone number to the wrong people.. The Law Society for England & Wales has a very good user side setup allowing people to see a wide range of details including each legal professional...

Apprise Legal Services: If you've already read a few of these review articles on our site, you'll know that we always try our best to find more varied types of firms to recommend rather than simply stuffing our directory with hundreds of firms (where the only difference between them seems to be the...


Artington Services Ltd: There are solicitors listed including Alison Morjaria and Nigel Hirst who qualified as solicitors back in 1993 and 1994 respectively. The first is the standard high street law firm that has existed for centuries. So how different is Artington compared to other business law f...


Aina Khan Solicitors: Sadly there weren't many independent reviews across the usual third party forums such as Google, Facebook, Yell, Trustpilot and Yelp. As the name is quite unique there shouldn't really be problems like you get with some firms that use generic terms in their names e...


Will Taborn Ltd: For example, this could be a requirement for a specialist member of the UK Bar (Barrister), premium investigatory services, litigation funding or eDiscovery."< div> However the gist of it is probably exactly how the name makes it sound. We have several firms on the netw...


Hutcheon Law Solicitors: Our services are often innovative and intuitive to meet the demands and needs of today's more sophisticated clients who require legal help on specific issues."< div> Every law firm has these kinds of phrases and sales-pitches across their website. No win, no fee means t...


Penn Chambers Ltd: This one had a considerable number of help articles answering basic questions such as "What Happens To My Pre-Nup If My Wedding Is Postponed Due To Covid-19?" and 'At What Age Can My Child Make Decisions Regarding Contact And Who To Live With?' . Meaning customer engagem...


Frank Rogers Motoring Solicitor: He assured me that I had a defence to the charge & prepared the case for Trial guiding me through the whole process. For example, 5 solicitors x 4 years experience each = 20 years' experience. But having worked with law firms for over 20+ years now, we know that experience ...


OJ Solicitors Glasgow: So having plenty of independent reviews to go through is always helpful. This is something we've said repeatedly elsewhere. Again, it's a shame that The Scottish Law Society does not help with better information in this area. Right now, a search for "OJ Solicitors" on search...

Kudos Legal Solicitors: The only issue when looking such things up is that there doesn't seem to be a clear separation between their Preston and Glasgow offices. The website www.kudoslegalservices.co.uk popped up some searches we tried but that is for the alternative firm we mentioned before. Hopef...


Serious Injury Law Solicitors: Their staff pages do indeed have direct email addresses for each individual solicitor. The last article we put out detailed a firm that had mountains of positive peer reviews, but very little client feedback available to view on the web. If you look at the page for Serious L...


5 Essex Court Chambers & Partners: However it's not uncommon for random adverts to appear under this or related keywords. This naturally means a great opportunity to save both time and money: class="infoquote "The Direct Public Access scheme introduced in 2004 enables barristers to be instructed direc...


Avery & Walters Ltd: Here is a selection of the more positive ones from places like Google, Trustpilot and Yell: class="infoquote "Great service from the team with regards to a family matter by providing the right advice and executing it in record timing." "The brief was a bit complic...


AWH Legal Ltd: For example, their staff profile pages are heavy on the personal information such as the solicitor's hobbies - but lacking in personal details such as direct email phone numbers. Or you could end up speaking to a junior in-experienced staff member for the 'free' 30-60 consul...


HH Law Ltd: Whilst a solicitor may have several cases keeping his attention, the client is only focused on one and thinking about it far more regularly. However, even though Hampson Hughes has one of these on their site - they do state a focus outside of just being about money. Unfortun...


Lawcommercial Trading Ltd: Always a good sign. They are not always 100% in control but quite often take 100% of the blame. On this firm's site however, there seems to be a genuine provision of pieces intended to help with titles such as "Will the New Shared Ownership Model Work?" and "New Residential...


Redwood Collections Ltd: Our typical commission rate is 15% in most instances."< div> Another very good incentive to use a debt agency such as these is their pay-on-results mentality. A final word from Redwoods site: class="infoquote "Whatever your debt collection or credit management nee...


AJLO Solicitors: At the very least, never discuss bank details or deposits via email. class="infoquote "At Alexander JLO we have a client-for-life philosophy that is instilled in all our employees from the day they join .... We ran a poll in the middle of last year and in this age of m...


GloverPriest Solicitors Ltd: If you want to know more about any particular solicitor at any firm you can usually get it from The Law Society website. A 200-year old firm might still stick you with a 1-year qualified solicitor to run your case. There are some personal profiles on the About pag...


Jarmans Solicitors Sittingbourne: i was made to feel at ease with Gordon Johnson" • "I highly recommend Jay Sahota and his team ..." < div> How does these compare with the third party independent review sites? Well, our first tip before even heading to third party boards such as Yelp, Yellow P...


BES Legal Solicitors Limited: handled my case speedily and efficiently responded to my calls and were polite and efficient ..." • "... However you could get a 5-year qualified solicitor at a 50 year old firm, or a 50-year experienced solicitor working at a 5-year old firm. If you go to the http...


Linkilaw Limited London: In other words: you can get a 20-year experienced lawyer from a 1-year established firm, and you can get a 1-year experienced lawyer from a 20-year established firm. lowest cost on the market due to their innovative online set up"< div> Often the testimonials firms use ...


My 33 Legal Limited: My daughter is now 12 and obsessed with something called 'Tik Tok'. I will therefore do my best to be concise for this 33 Legal review. class="infoquote "Here at 33 Legal we like to ensure the right amount of compensation goes to those who are entitled. Beneath that we...


Hammond Trotter Solicitors Ltd: Hammond & Trotter are not exactly cheap, but at least they'll listen to your circumstances for free before quoting you a price for whatever work they think is needed to resolve the matter. Always remember, though, that fighting a motor offence case is hardly ever abou...


Driscoll Kingston Solicitors: Driscoll Kingston have articles on case samples, changes in the law, staff promotions, and their charitable efforts. DK cover compensation claims and Wills Probate. But as we plan on recommending them to other people - we don't want to end up with egg on our face. Whi...


SBW Lawyers Ltd: That doesn't mean you should drop your guard though and it's always an idea to bookmark the site if it's important so you don't make a tired error one day and hand your personal details to the wrong people. We've seen the most ridiculous claims over the years, such as one fi...


IWC Estate Planning & Management Ltd: Even if someone calls you to confirm bank details, unless you absolutely recognise the voice - you should hang up and call the company back on the phone number you've been officially given. Many firms hate review sites and we've covered a couple of firms where a chunk of the...


Briffa Intellectual Property Solicitors: They also seem to have had prior lives and professions where Intellectual Property protection would have been important to them personally. To top it off, they have a wide range of case studies on their site. If you don't know how passionate you have to be about a subje...


Helix Law: Real lists that even use bullet points! For space saving though, I'm going to have to compact it a little and skip the line breaks: class="infoquote "Helix Law: Business Law, Property Disputes, Employment ... I spoke to Laura Albon who helped talk through my situatio...


Leech and Co Solicitors Ltd: These are just a couple of things to note which you may not already have been aware of. There are so many variants and we didn't even scratch the surface. Why is all that relevant? To make the point that even with a firm's name that is quite unique there are often dozen...


Joanna Connolly Solicitor Advocates: For consumer credit disputes, they also list themselves as consumer credit specialists, helping consumers when court proceedings are either being threatened or already issued. Previously Head of Consumer Credit Litigation at MSB Solicitors, Joanna has had extensive litigatio...


CFG Law: The fact more firms don't include them on their websites boggles the mind. We'd therefore recommend bookmarking the site once on it to be sure. It's very brief descriptions a few sentences long each about an accident, the injuries, and the amount paid out. As CFG points out ...
