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: Some firms have started stating their favourite foods, colours and pet's names though which isn't really what we're suggesting or recommend. People these days want to know more about what their solicitor is like rather than how many centuries ago the brand name was esta...


AJLO Solicitors: Unfortunately, many people end up skipping over the bulk of any text that starts out quite 'sales-pitchy'. What should have been a simple transaction with no chain took over six months to complete ..." < div> It goes on for quite a bit after that. Great job." "From ...


Ventura Law Solicitors: Not the 'favourite food' and 'nickname' type profiles we've seen popping up on other solicitor's websites though. But at least it's free from the regular clichés such as "we're modern but traditional" or "we're professional yet friendly" or "we're unique yet seem to say the ...


GloverPriest Solicitors Ltd: We've seen negative reviews for when the buyer seller pulls out, for incorrect local searches, for third party delays - all of which the client believed their solicitor should have been able to sort. So seeing direct contact details for solicitors on the Glover Priest...


Jarmans Solicitors Sittingbourne: No website came up for most we tried either. However at that time everyone else involved such as insurers, healthcare professionals, letting agents, etc. That's why we always recommend having a look at https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk organisation people 411403 jarmans-...

HUMD Solicitors Ltd: I would recommend everyone to use HUMD Solicitors." "Excellent service, HUMD Solicitors dealt with my commercial property sale, it was great as they provided an excellent service and kept me informed all the way through without no problems."< div> So what about thi...


BES Legal Solicitors Limited: If you go to the https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk office 613679 bes-legal-limited" page for BES Legal< a> you'll see a great mix of fresh faces and seasoned solicitors. This is true for most companies and is often overlooked. Thanks and everything." - then maybe dial t...


Shaw & Co Solicitors: Also, special characters cannot be used in web addresses for any dot-variant, so www.shaw&co.com or www.shaw&co.co.uk will never exist. Conveyancing clients are targeted quite heavily. Practically every page also had a 2-3 paragraph sales pitch like the one from the front pa...


Hallmark Legal Services Ltd: A campaign kicked off by their local Viking FM radio station. It's true that many general practice firms have experts within the group. selling a house or writing a will - businesses can often have two or three cases going on simultaneously year after year. Unfortunately thi...


Kuddus Solicitors London Ltd: It doesn't take long to realise that no-one wants to read them. So yes, we absolutely agree that using a solicitor with focus in a certain area is best. Certainly it's true that 99.9999% of them will state something like 'no cost to you' (usually phrased as 'no win, no fee')...


Linkilaw Limited London: Over the past several months we've seen nothing but complaints from people who pick the lowest priced law firm only to get slammed with extra costs later on or simply get awful service. Most of the negative reviews in this instance were about working at the firm anyway. They...


My 33 Legal Limited: Even Medical Negligence and Criminal Injury cases will typically be no win, no fee. However, we were pleased to see that the staff of 33 Legal treat social media in a way you would expect a firm dealing with such serious matters to do. The one we link to above is www.33leg...


Ross Coates Conveyancing Solicitors: As I said, they refer to the 90s on their site and the eponymous https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk organisation people 424824 ross-coates-solicitors" Ross Michael Coates< a> himself qualified as a solicitor back in 1979. Although not to the ridiculous extent some firms ...

Hammond Trotter Solicitors Ltd: Refusing to Provide a Specimen, Drink Driving, Drugged Driving, Failure to Provide a Specimen, Speeding, Driving whilst Disqualified, Driving Without Due Care & Attention, Using a Mobile Phone, Driving Without Insurance, Failure to Stop at the Scene of an Accident, Failure ...


Driscoll Kingston Solicitors: There is still some confusion with 0845, 0300, 0333 and so on but we know of no network that charges for 0800 numbers any more. there is no need for improvement from this firm." "At Driscoll Kingston no improvement is needed."< div> I'm sure that like me, many of you ...


SBW Lawyers Ltd: The difference is whether it includes speaking to an actual solicitor rather than a claims handler. All this means is that the firm can be owned, employ, and be invested in by both law professionals and non-law professionals. Now there are 03000, 0800, 0808, 0345, 0871, 0845...


Graysons Solicitors: All of them. But it's your solicitor that often gets blamed if something goes wrong. They've also https: www.justgiving.com 3runsandajump" raised funds< a> for a cancer charity and sponsored a local cultural event called Art In The Gardens allowing new and established art...


IWC Estate Planning & Management Ltd: They are simply 'case management companies'. You may have already noticed that not many people bother writing reviews about law firms. etc it's difficult to know whether an hour's call charges will cost you more than the solicitor. Adding IWC Estate Planning & Management Ltd...


Thamina Kabir Solicitors: This limited range is another reason we like the firm. Please note, however, that Mrs Universe is nothing like the much-maligned Miss Universe. But then you might notice that they have zero reviews on Yelp and only one review on Yellow Pages. We didn't check other varia...


Alfred James and Co Solicitors: But this firm not only still work with Legal Aid, they have a full section talking about entitlement and how they can help you find out what assistance is available. That shows they obviously have incredibly good taste in business partnerships. Usually if someone is angry en...


Briffa Intellectual Property Solicitors: Mini-articles stating how great the firm is at dealing with x, y, or z. We love case studies in the same way teenagers love YouTube. With Briffa though, there's bucket loads. If you've read other reviews on here then that should already be clear. "commercials". I won't go ...


Helix Law: Recently we've started seeking out more specialist firms to try and save people the hassle of phoning a firm that says they do personal injury, only to find out they don't do 'that' kind of injury. We've even come across motor offence solicitors that won't touch any case le...


Leech and Co Solicitors Ltd: There were a few one star reviews on Google, but the reviewers didn't leave any comments about why - which is no help at all. for people who have to confront their own death or confront the death of a loved one, the chance to discuss their feelings and fears can be a great s...


Injury Lawyers UK: At least half of the firms we review are actually members of our network. Some firms will proudly state 'established in 1873' but then have their receptionist interview you before passing your case to a 25-year old trainee with 6 month's experience. So what have we spotted ...


Joanna Connolly Solicitor Advocates: Previously Head of Consumer Credit Litigation at MSB Solicitors, Joanna has had extensive litigation experience in both the County Courts and High Courts level. The firm can offer assistance in defending County Court claims as well as statutory demands issued by credito...


CFG Law: Obviously we've linked to the main site www.cfglaw.co.uk but www.cfglaw.com goes no-where, which usually ends up with people trying their luck with other names. With huge titles such as "Serious brain injury - £2,900,000 damages" and "Amputation - £534,000 damages" the m...


Hodge Jones and Allen Solicitors: For example, solicitors typically don't get a lot of online reviews in the same way local shops or online service providers get. (No, seriously.) We didn't see such things on this occasion though. We list firms that process £millions in cases. Staff have apparent...


CSL Law Croydon: Hopefully this should also point out the folly of thinking that a firm stating "Establish 1813!" has 200+ years more experience over a firm created in 2013. Reviews, information, and news articles on organisations such as the Charlotte School of Law, Colorado Senior Lobby, a...


RSR Law Croydon: Or as we normally do - state conclusions that could be drawn and why they probably shouldn't be. this means you pay no upfront costs and we only get paid only if you win your case. (It's F.A.S.T. His particular areas of expertise are stated as Occupational Disease Claims, Em...


Johnsons Solicitors Nottingham: For many case types, solicitors may opt to or may have to select a barrister to do the representing. There was a group of architects, a carpet cleaning company, and another law firm that wasn't even based in the UK but Seattle, Washington. So why do we recommend peopl...


Autologistic Solutions Limited: One thing we've always prided ourselves on and something we often post about, is how the 1to1Legal network is setup to put you directly and instantly in touch with legal professionals experienced in your case type. We ran a poll roughly six months ago asking people who tho...


Philip Nam White Collar Legal: If you're a legal professional, the PPP site is worth a few minutes of your time. We also found the firm listed on BusinessApprovalRegister.com which purports to be a list of companies approved by Trading Standards. What first appealed to us with White Collar Legal i...


RHW Solicitors Ltd: Even though they may have only become a limited company within the past decade, many firms can trace roots back much further depending on the original founders or even just a good merger: class="infoquote "rhw Solicitors were founded back in 1835 when George Crafter e...


Stephen McCaffery & Catherine Stock: But before you go grabbing the phone, we're going have to provide a more in-depth description of that last one. In fact we found Catherine and Stephen's names popping up on dozens of other websites either as result of work done or partnerships with other firms. ...


Kings Court Trust Probate: But on this occasion I have no problem stating that any such misgivings are totally unfounded . We're not the only ones that think so either. This apparently lets you check the progress of your case at any time through a password protected admin area. We see ourselves ...


EHL Solicitors UK: However, Edward Hands and Lewis is a very large firm and therefore probably have a dedicated web-person. Locations, phone numbers, etc. It has great chunks of information, and it has nicely laid out lists. Then in 2014 the firm's Managing Director was crowned Boss of the Yea...
