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:

Pointon and Co Solicitors Ltd: instead blaming the owner of the manhole (a telecoms company) for lack of maintenance. So as mentioned, Pointon & Co's offering to work around your schedule is no small thing. For example, there's a Pointon & Co in County Down, Ireland. But www.pointonsolicitors.com is not ...


AJLO Solicitors: On the AlexanderJLO site each staff member has a direct email address displayed and a link to their personal reviews with the Good Lawyer Guide. class="infoquote "We would be delighted to offer a free initial appointment but are unable to assist with Legal Aid applic...


Ventura Law Solicitors: We've come across this issue before with law firms though, and it is sometimes the case that the firm's clientele are simply made up of other professionals who all like to write clearly and spellcheck everything before posting . 'Public reviews' talk more about what happene...


GloverPriest Solicitors Ltd: This may be reserved for house purchases sales only though. Glover&Priest with the ampersand in the middle is not possible as a web address but www.gloverandpriest.com is. It's as if they believe solicitors need 'humanising'. We offer you face-to-face appointments and also r...


Jarmans Solicitors Sittingbourne: That's a general complaint across the industry as a whole though, not something we think only Jarmans could possibly look at. Jarmans do push forward one common sales pitch argument though, regarding the law firm's perceived age: class="infoquote "We give legal advice ...

HUMD Solicitors Ltd: Of course, any firm you're researching could genuinely be awful at Conveyancing or Immigration. Solicitors are not magicians constantly finding loopholes in the system to get you what you want. Especially at the moment with all the major issues surrounding Immigration. For e...


BES Legal Solicitors Limited: Some firms may have several years' worth of 5 star glowing reviews. For example, the B.E.S. We know many firms have been showing the same 5 testimonials on their site for the past decade. of this firm's name stands for the name of the founder - Bate Edmunds Snape. That can ...


Shaw & Co Solicitors: Photos of a 'villain' and heart-breaking cliches are not included. No win, no fee simply means that if you lose you have nothing to pay. unlike a generalised personal injury firm, we understand how an injury can affect your career, both in the military and your plans for aft...


Hallmark Legal Services Ltd: This is not the case for Hallmark. The most common specialist people immediately search for is road traffic offence solicitors. They are up to date with the most recent developments and show respect to the courts. So next time you see a firm that states 'Establish...


Kuddus Solicitors London Ltd: It doesn't take long to realise that no-one wants to read them. This is not because we're any smarter than the next person. Mostly this is done for purely marketing reasons and has very little to do with the quality of service you'll receive. Adverts for online propert...


Linkilaw Limited London: Someone stating 'Established 1880' means nothing really. What do they cover? Whilst Business Law probably sounds like a very focused case title, once the honeymoon period of "I'm going to start up a business!" wears off - you'll suddenly realise why people get so angr...


My 33 Legal Limited: Whilst https: www.theguardian.com money 2017 jan 14 lost-67000-conveyancing-scam-friday-afternoon-fraud-legal-sector-email-hacker" scammers seem to have mainly hit property solicitors< a> in recent years, there is so much https: en.wikipedia.org wiki Phishing" phishing...


Ross Coates Conveyancing Solicitors: We then try to sum it all up and highlight the main bits you might have missed or those which ended up on Page 5 of the search engine results. Similarly the firm is no longer using the Harmony Law branding so www.harmonylaw.co.uk and www.harmonylaw.com don't even redirect ...

Hammond Trotter Solicitors Ltd: Unfortunately, when you have a very low number of reviews from which to draw an average - just one even middle-ing review can cause a large slip. The usual suspects such as Yellow Pages, Yelp, TrustPilot and so on show dozens of comments providing high praise and high star ...


Driscoll Kingston Solicitors: The majority of solicitor's websites you'll visit today will say they understand the stress and care for their clients. If you ever want to know how long someone has been practising law, you can always look them up on The Law Society website. Not just glancing at the sidelin...


SBW Lawyers Ltd: Ironically (and don't take this point as lightly as it sounds) SBW Law have taken the time to explain what speaking to someone in plain english means rather than just quoting a catchphrase and expecting you to understand. We couldn't find any reviews of the firm in th...


Graysons Solicitors: But a good tip to remember is you can check up on the experience and specialisms of most solicitors across England & Wales using The Law Society website. Just know that these two in particular are the most renown . Often people have a few initial questions about an issue th...


IWC Estate Planning & Management Ltd: But all these websites seem to be identical. Of course, that's just when they registered as a "Ltd" company in Braintree. So, do we have any negative points to raise? Well, they could use a really good search function for the help articles rather than just the drop down cat...


Thamina Kabir Solicitors: This limited range is another reason we like the firm. However we definitely want to point it out because it highlights the character of the person behind Thamina Solicitors. The snippets quoted above could have been copy pasted from a thousand other sites. People reading a...


Alfred James and Co Solicitors: Although that doesn't mean every firm with more than 10 staff members has lost that personal touch. They back up this ethical attitude by doing something very few solicitors still bother with - Legal Aid. That shows they obviously have incredibly good taste in business part...


Briffa Intellectual Property Solicitors: Here's what a few of their peers said about founder Margaret Briffa in the Chambers & Legal 500: class="infoquote "knows what she is talking about and is very diligent and measured in her approach"< div> class="infoquote "she doesn't put you on the meter every time ...


Helix Law: Just with this alone we would highly recommend bookmarking the correct website once you're on it. I would not hesitate to recommend them."< div> class="infoquote "Avery approachable and helpful company - I called out of the blue to get some general advice and potentiall...


Leech and Co Solicitors Ltd: We also checked for SRA judgements, Legal Ombudsman complaints, and even recurring negative themes in the reviews. We definitely throw a large wad of Kudos their way for bringing it up though. There are some error addresses that the firm own and which redirect you to the ...


Injury Lawyers UK: If you're confused by the fact we're talking about Centenary Solicitors yet linking to a website called Injury Lawyers UK. Just like Toyota has Lexus and Disney own Star Wars. This kind of experience and insight is invaluable , in the same way that a firm with experie...


Joanna Connolly Solicitor Advocates: For example, when we checked their site it stated that during their firm's history they had: won 78% of cases, lost 2% of cases, had 20% of cases dropped, and recovered 75% of legal costs. Joanna Connolly Solicitors is a sole practitioner law firm striving to provide a high ...


CFG Law: On this occasion, the firm has thankfully missed out bits about their favourite colours, food, and hobbies. We will help to arrange housing modifications and adaptations or find appropriate alternative accommodation to aid discharge home and ongoing requirements."< div> ...


Hodge Jones and Allen Solicitors: Everything from Legal 500 UK Firm of the Year, Legal Aid Team of the Year, Personal Injury Team of the Year and even individual awards such as staff ending up on The Lawyer Hot 100 list. First off is the roots of the firm which started as duty solicitors at police sta...


CSL Law Croydon: So instead of questions like "What makes our firm so amazing?" they have questions actually relating to legal matters such as divorce - e.g. We link to the official www.csllaw.co.uk above and there is no current website at www.csllaw.com or other tlds. But even then ...


RSR Law Croydon: Whilst we've linked to the official site at www.rsrlaw.co.uk above, there is a website at www.rsrlaw.com but it is for an American firm. Sometimes however, we run into a firm during the course of our day-to-day dealings that simply piques our interest. The quirks and matchin...


Johnsons Solicitors Nottingham: not all written on the same day by seven people who have never written any reviews about any other firms). There were other issues people might run into when researching this firm that we'll come to later, but first we need to go over a few things about Johnsons in gen...


Autologistic Solutions Limited: There is a news section on Auto Logistic's website, but we'd call it more of a blog as it describes job vacancies, Christmas opening times, with a few non-internal matters such as an article about falling fuel prices. I could probably go on and on about the problems with eve...


Philip Nam White Collar Legal: We also found the firm listed on BusinessApprovalRegister.com which purports to be a list of companies approved by Trading Standards. Enough to have seen plenty of veteran-but-desk-bound solicitors run rings round by younger legal professionals who practically live in the ...


RHW Solicitors Ltd: but most importantly - personal contact details including a direct telephone number and email address for each solicitor. This kind of open-ness goes a long way to encouraging faith that you won't constantly be fobbed off by a secretary and the words "sorry, they're in a me...


Stephen McCaffery & Catherine Stock: So what about the barristers themselves? Stephen McCaffrey is Head of Chambers at Kings View Chambers having become a barrister in 2007. www.gardencourtchambers.co.uk did show up in the search results, but we could find no link between them and King's View. So why ha...


Kings Court Trust Probate: However, to be honest, you can read PDFs till the cows come home and still not know how your particular case might go or what is needed. This has resulted in low consumer confidence, with http: www.chambersstudent.co.uk where-to-start newsletter alternative-business-struct...


EHL Solicitors UK: Whilst social media profiles are great for providing things like phone numbers, addresses, opening hours, etc. Some statements are repeated, some are drawn out, and some seem superfluous - i.e. Something you don't get from phone calls. However, Edward Hands and Lewis is a ve...
