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: Tesco changed their representation twice and then admitted liability" < div> If you've already read through several law firm's websites today, you may have spotted how much of the 'testimonials' sound the same. The heavily snippeted example above is just the kind of thi...


AJLO Solicitors: The guide is not like a Top 100 or any form of accreditation though. Accredited legal professionals undergo a rigorous process including demonstrating extensive experience, expertise and high standards of practice. We're not fans of companies that fill their profiles with ...


Ventura Law Solicitors: Normally it's conveyancing firms and their clients that are https: www.legalfutures.co.uk associate-news bogus-law-firms-and-identity-theft" targeted by scammers< a>, but you never know what's ahead so do everything you can to keep safe. class="infoquote "solutions ...


GloverPriest Solicitors Ltd: It's as if they believe solicitors need 'humanising'. The official site is www.gloverpriest.com and not even the normal www.gloverpriest.co.uk variant redirects people to it. We also read in the reviews about how Glover Priest have an online tracking system for clients so t...


Jarmans Solicitors Sittingbourne: Obviously never discuss payment matters via email, and we'll have a last word from the firm: class="infoquote "We think outside the box and punch above our weight to deliver top-notch advice and solutions to any legal issue. installed confidence in me from the very fir...

HUMD Solicitors Ltd: Solicitors are not magicians constantly finding loopholes in the system to get you what you want. Most of the time it's the government officials causing issues , delays, or losing things anyway. Hammad Ajmal Khan qualified in 2010 and focuses on Employment Law, Family Law, ...


BES Legal Solicitors Limited: Whilst that is most definitely information about the company, it doesn't provide you with anything to help you decide on using them over another firm .

Shaw & Co Solicitors: www.shawandco.co.uk is for a different firm called HML. class="infoquote "... Some firms add up the experience of all their staff put together and make statement such as 'we have a combined experience of 20 years' which could simply mean 5 members of staff with 4 year...


Hallmark Legal Services Ltd: Usually we're quite critical of firms that take considerable time with social media as it's typically a vanity exercise.

Kuddus Solicitors London Ltd: This is because delays, errors, costs, mixups, and even complete changes-of-mind occur frequently in house buying selling . This was out of a list of 10 common reasons such as 'It was a private matter I didn't feel like sharing' which took a third of the remaining vote. We...


Linkilaw Limited London: Certainly, many of the reviews seem to speak in the third person (e.g. We've seen negative reviews where the client gave 1 star because the criminal law firm he contacted refused to take on his divorce case. Someone stating 'Established 1880' means nothing really. What...


My 33 Legal Limited: Beneath that we saw www.crashedtoday.co.uk and www.ukclaimline.co.uk both with titles indicating they were part of the same firm as well. The maximum a solicitor should take though is 25% of your compensation to help cover costs as not all case types result in the solicitors...

Hammond Trotter Solicitors Ltd: Many places around the country offer to send you to a Safe Driving course rather than formally prosecute you. However this option is usually only made available if you respond quickly. The number of possible offences is always growing. There is a reason most people see...


Driscoll Kingston Solicitors: If you ever want to know how long someone has been practising law, you can always look them up on The Law Society website. If you #sbwlaw read the article< a> previous to this one, you'll see a great example of why we regularly dislike testimonial pages. Driscoll Kingston h...


SBW Lawyers Ltd: For things like medical negligence cases where the risk and costs can be much higher, you might struggle to find a firm that offers you a 100% compensation guarantee. At the time of writing this, there were only 4 reviews on the Google site. So whilst the company branding i...


Graysons Solicitors: We are still seeing stories of people falling for bank detail scams during property sales. They've even got a few self-promoting articles in their as well with titles such as 'Do I have a claim to my partner's pension now that we are separated?' , 'Have you had a road traf...


IWC Estate Planning & Management Ltd: These are people with no legal qualifications that discuss your case in depth with you and take all the details. So, do we have any negative points to raise?

Briffa Intellectual Property Solicitors: They may also deal with divorces, personal injury, and criminal law in the same day. Why am I bringing this up?

Helix Law: One of the key indicators of fakery, is if the majority of 5 star reviewers have only ever written that one review whilst the negative comments come from people with dozens of reviews written about different firms. Not in a sideways slant of a drop down menu. If people...


Leech and Co Solicitors Ltd: These are just a couple of things to note which you may not already have been aware of. Some people are idiots, which is why we always recommend ignoring general ratings unless there are accompanied by the reviewer's comments for proper context . Considering the subjec...


Injury Lawyers UK: Online case tracking is a positive step and any firm doing it gets a handful of brownie points from us. This kind of experience and insight is invaluable , in the same way that a firm with experience litigating for employees and defending employers will be able to advise bo...

CFG Law: Clients, their families, healthcare professionals and insurers alike tell us our approach is refreshingly different."< div> Anyway, I think that's plenty of writing about how impressed we are with the general setup. However, I've also personally written and commissione...


Hodge Jones and Allen Solicitors: I don't think anyone can argue that! There also seems to be an active interest in law generally and in helping people. All above 4☆. However it shouldn't be ignored as a result. But when we use the word 'big' to describe Hodge Jones & Allen LLP, it's their presenc...


CSL Law Croydon: Of course CSL cover a niche case range of Divorce, Dispute Resolution, and Employment Law so the site shouldn't be large anyway. That's not unusual for Google, but in this instance it made researching difficult and it became apparent that unless people actually dug into some...


RSR Law Croydon: In some cases we may charge a small fee if further investigation is required, before a no win no fee agreement can be entered, (i.e. Contest. ;) class="infoquote "RSR Law Ltd's focus is on getting you, our client, the best possible outcome for your case in a timely and...


Johnsons Solicitors Nottingham: All this is to hopefully provide a good overview and a wide range of facts to help people decide whether to use this firm. Not just that, but they look like genuine 5☆ reviews too (i.e. Both www.johnsonpartnership.co.uk and www.johnsonpartnership.com are owned b...


Autologistic Solutions Limited: If you had to pay for it because of the accident, you can claim it back along with the injury compensation. Again you may want to call your currently provider and check if you have to be a certain distance from your home or if there is an extra fee relating to accident recov...

I've done a fair bit of court work myself on both sides and behind the scenes. site's owner is a private businessman, the website is a Limited company, and there isn't much readily available information as to what being 'approved...


RHW Solicitors Ltd: If you haven't read any of our other reviews before this one, then the fact I'm relieved to be writing a simple review about a very straightforward firm - may come as a shock.

Stephen McCaffery & Catherine Stock: So why have we sought out such a relatively new, small chambers to add to our network? There are a few reasons, but the one that caught our eye initially was the case range. Whilst elsewhere in England & Wales you could not be a Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and an MP,...


Kings Court Trust Probate: With a name like "Kings Court" and the fact this firm handles legal matters such as probate, you'd be forgiven for jumping to the conclusion that KCT are a chambers packed with grey-wigged barristers. The general site layout seems to be various snippets about why you should ...


EHL Solicitors UK: They are not very good for actual useful communication when it comes to legal issues. Their website has modern features, and older ones. The earliest record available of that practice is in 1882 although we suspect that it dates much earlier than this ..."< div> Sound h...
