Finding the Right Help in the UK

Not enough help for you yet? No problem. We've written many more pieces from various angles and about various type of firms across various parts of the country with various case ranges and varying experiences. Not to mention various ages, backgrounds and resources. We try to cover the things that you can find across the majority of firms so that you can have a general tool set from which to work when trying to discover which firm might be right for you. The reviews are not really to state one firm is better than another:

Swain and Co Solicitors: On this occasion though all the https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk office 563652 young-and-co-solicitors-limited" information is listed< a> under the main branding parent firm in the group called Young & Co Solicitors. They have their own https: find-and-update.company...


Fentimans My Law Matters: However there were some negative comments that really need to be read. class="infoquote "our team have years of experience and offer a wide range of legal services"< div> A quick note on navigation as we're dealing with a trading name and one with three generic ...


Frazer Coogans Solicitors: Since the 90s the government has been stripping Legal Aid massively so that these days very few people qualify for help and the lawyers working under legal aid are paid a fraction of what they would normally charge for their services. A quick note on navigation. The la...


Burton & Co Quality Solicitors: That's totally up to each individual to decide after careful research and having spoken to someone at the firm about the case. It provides a wealth of data user-side such as all trading names, alternative offices, languages spoken - plus the aforementioned qualification ...


One Law Solicitors & Barristers: There are several independent review boards online such as https: www.google.com search?q=onelaw+chambers&rlz=1C1CHBF_en-GBGB926GB926&oq=OneLaw+Chambers&aqs=chrome.0.0i355i512j46i175i199i512j0i22i30j69i60l2.900j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#lrd=0x487605d7d69d853f:0x1ba40eec...

Beers Solicitors LLP: This article is therefore going to sound quite 'pro' their firm , making it look almost like something they wrote themselves and paid us to publish. But we didn't see such a solicitor named as working at this firm. It's very common for solicitors to do this. For example a...


Disrepair Claims UK: So it's probably a good idea to bookmark the correct site once you're on it to be sure you come back to the correct one. Most of the time unregulated claims resellers hide out on social media sites like Facebook. class="infoquote "Depending on the solicitor we ...


Simper Law: But the main reason people probably prefer the third party independent review boards is that they will also include any negative reviews. It's very common in law firm review sections to see the losing side of a case leave negative ratings on the firm that beat them. c...


RM Solicitors: Normally this is done by simply emailing the client stating the bank details for payment have changed. If a firm tries to charge you to discuss an injury claim case, then move on to the next one quickly. Normally you will be asked to sign an insurance document to cover the c...


Ullah Law Associates: It would be wonderful if all company reviews could be like that as you can get a real sense of the positive negative themes of each firm that way. ULA apparently started out with just a single case type in mind, having set up as: class="infoquote "... Make sure you kee...


Taylor Price Legal Ltd: The age of the law office's brand name is therefore rather unimportant. There are plenty of things to pick out though that could make a difference to your decision. Watch out for firms that claim ancient establishment dates such as 'founded in 1781'. Well give you some ...


Michael Leighton Jones Solicitors: We've seen bad ratings for firms that had to close over the Covid pandemic. However it would still be fair to call this firm a group of 'specialists' as well. It's a good idea to read comments when it comes to legal service providers as well rather than just checking ...


Milners Law LLP: The best way we recommend to research any legal service provider is through their local law society website if possible. For example, it looked like one was by a law student who got turned down for a job. A quick note on navigation. That's why we recommend bookmark...

KRS Wills & Probate: There are even options to resolve matters without using a solicitor at all such as Mediation in divorce proceedings. The quote above is from the website of KRS Estate Planning and we absolutely agree that making a will is something hugely important that many people leave f...


Branch Austin McCormick Solicitors: What we don't like is when solicitors go too far and start listing their favourite foods and pet's names. But we'll come back to whether Branch Austin McCormick fit this description later. But we've seen several people complain about a solicitor for not handling their partic...


Trojan Solicitors: Does this make them not a 'specialist' firm then? They're certainly not a general practice firm covering every single type of case though. Agnieszka is listed as an Immigration specialist and has extra accreditation for such matters from the Law Society as well. Sinc...


Cheshire Estates and Legal Ltd: Then search for firms handling 'financial mis-selling' matters. We've seen someone leave a negative review about a Criminal Law firm for refusing to take on their Divorce. Certainly CEL Solicitors have a wide range of positive reviews : class="infoquote "they really d...


Fultons Estate Agents: The biggest conveyancer in the UK which we reviewed last week has a Google rating of just 3.1 stars at the time of writing. class="infoquote "With our estate agency and property conveyancing teams under one roof, we offer a seamless transition from initial valuation a...


Hooper Hyde Solicitors: So don't take the fact a firm is a trading name of another company name as meaning anything at all. HooperHyde is the branding used but for some reason when you type various related phrases into search engines you sometimes get results for a service called Lawyer365 or Hoope...


Antony Hodari Legal Services: It will tell you alternative trading names they use, other possibly more local offices to you, languages spoken, speciality case types, and more. The only common typo we saw in our logs was for www.anthonyhodari.co.uk with an 'h' in the first name. As specialists go, t...


Fair Result Divorce: So is Fair Result's claim just vague sales jargon? Well, no. We simply try to offer a sort of business insider view. 'One of' - out of how many? A thousand firms? 'Leading' - leading in what? That could be leading in the number of cases lost for all we know. Sometimes a ba...


Dylan Nair Ltd Solicitors: 100% compensation means there will be no fees if your case wins OR loses. The main points people most want to see are typically a photo, case specialties, and relevant work history. As you can see from the snippets above, they're largely quite positive . Nor do any of the h...


Mckie Legal Solicitors Ltd: Freqently there are phrases which sound good like 'we're friendly' - but then you think, 'well, what firm is going to say anything different?'. That means more than you might think. The second means no fees whether case your case loses OR wins. The main address is in Penrit...


Jacobs Law Solicitors: That's because "established in 2013" can sound ridiculously new to some considering so many solicitors quote centuries-old founding dates. For example: class="infoquote "Established in 2013, Jacobs Law Solicitors specialise in advising and supporting individuals, small...


Allan Argue and Co Solicitors: You'll just see auto search results from your browser.. However it's easy to imagine getting lost in the numbers at a large firm as well. Despite the owner's surname being a generic word (argue) the firm shows up fine for the majority of it's terms on search engines. We pr...


Springle Solicitors: A sort of wedding-planner for end-of-life (if that's not too dark an analogy). Plus more and more people are owning their own business which brings an entirely different set of issues to consider should you pass on while that business is running. class="infoquote ...


BLZ Solicitors Ltd: This is where the balancing act in your brain can get a little wobbly. class="infoquote "Your case will be handled personally by a Partner from start to finish with expert advice provided."< div> Clients always want this sort of attention from any firm, bu...


Hawkridge & Co Solicitors: class="infoquote "We are a specialist legal firm providing a range of services in the Medway town of Gillingham"< div> This quote from the firm's website is a selection of words that sound good but are almost meaningless to consumers because every single law firm'...


Pacific Law: Many firms since the pandemic have managed to upgrade their systems to offer video-call appointments. We've also seen dozens of negative reviews followed by comments from the firm stating 'this person has never been a client of ours'. . At the moment www.pacificlaw.co...


ABS Lawyers Ltd: So always make sure you're on the correct site and never discuss payments or bank details via email . However you should notice the 'translated' note next to those. None of the other such organisations we've seen so far have had the same high level of user-side information ...


Stenfield Solicitors Ltd: Of course even in these days of 'modern' legal setups offering online case tracking and many matters being resolved without the client even actually meeting with their solicitor face to face - there are still a huge number of people that prefer the idea of a larger fi...


Khan Law Glasgow: That's a ridiculously simplistic example, but it hopefully conveys the general point. Using an experienced lawyer who takes 20% of a £5000 hard fought win is better than having a less expert lawyer take 0% of a £2000 settlement. class="infoquote "Specialist P...


Deo Volente Legal: As also mentioned above, the firm's branding may only have seven years behind it but the solicitors within the firm have much more than that. There are titles such as 'How Brexit is going to Affect the Immigration Policies for the UK (2021)', 'Cryptocurrency and Wills',...


Suhail Ahmad at Richmond Legal: A quick note on navigation though as when we tried searching for information around the web about this firm, Google wasn't the most helpful. It's also become more of a pain to organise. So a public display (it's actually capitalised on the Richmond Legal website but we...


Trust Inheritance Limited: For example, a firm that states they handle "Will & Probate" matters may simply help people create a Will. "Estate Planning" firms on the other hand do much more. However we hope the information and links provided above at least show why we were more than happy to add Trus...


Bilkus and Boyle: Typically one side is always unhappy at how a sale has gone either due to timescale, delays with finance, things popping up during the search phase, and so on. However the whole ancient-history-boasting across the legal industry is really just a marketing ploy to make a firm...


Catteralls in Wakefield: You'll note that they have solicitors that have qualified in every decade from the past 40 years including Philip Lisle who qualified in 1981, Julie Burgess (1996), Rebecca Baker (2005), right up to Danielle Knee with the relatively 'green' 2011 in comparison. If you look ...


Penerley Solicitors: There's therefore been quite a surge in the number and type of legal service provider popping up to meet the demand. As mentioned before many law firms are stuck in the past and the 9am-5pm, Mon-Fri is still the industry norm. But at the moment, Google is listing their ...


Conveyancing Search Providers: All other variants we tried such as www.searchbureau.com and www.thesearchbureau.com were owned by different firms. Groundsure Location Intelligence provide land analysis to check contamination, flooding and ground stability. class="infoquote "Using our powerful IT sy...


Special Education Needs Lawyer: We've seen quite a few lawyers offering a full hour's face to face consultation to discuss your case for free. This applies to the Education Law Service Ltd firm as well. For example Wills and many Tax matters can be handled by companies without any legal qualific...


Pump Court Chambers Barristers: Prior to this new setup, quite often the first time a client would meet their barrister is about 10 minutes before walking into the court room. These are not just other offices of the same group of barristers. She really made me feel at ease" "Matthew was on hand at all...


Mason Bullock Solicitors: When it comes to personal injury it seems that many solicitors are just pushing clients through, taking a cut of the compensation cheque, and that's it. So highly are they publicly praised, they've felt comfortable enough to link their testimonials section to their TrustPil...


Lindsays Solicitors Scotland: (No, really.) So never just flick through star ratings, always read comments to get a more rounded view of the pros and cons previous clients have discussed online. But in recent years law firms that deal in property matters https: www.express.co.uk finance personalfinan...


Aspire Licensing & Administrative Services: There are certainly more quality, cost-effective, and quicker solutions to legal problems these days. A last word from Aspire's own site: class="infoquote "Aspire Licensing and Administrative Services offers a one stop shop for all licensing services applied for under ...


OTS Immigration Solicitors: OTS Solicitors state being listed in https: www.legal500.com " The Legal 500< a>, which unfortunately is probably more known amongst other legal industry professionals rather than general consumers. class="infoquote "Each part of the process was explained clearly. A...


Reid and Black Solicitors: Obviously there could be mis-spellings of the Reid part with the whole 'i' before 'e' thing many of us still have stuck in our heads from school. Most solicitors will register with a Law Society even though it is not mandatory. Having started back in 1999, we obviously put m...


Howe and Co Solicitors: They have over 100 staff, cover a wide range of legal matters, and a long history. class="infoquote "We have specialists lawyers to match every level of work that you require, ranging from the senior partner, through to junior lawyers working under supervision."< div> ...


Robin Somerville Barrister: A quite note on navigation as the this is obviously the barrister's name as the branding and web address. Direct Access is something barristers have to apply for and be qualified to offer. For example a solicitor consulting with a barrister on your issue to improve it's...


Levins Solicitors: The firm do cover a wide range of legal matters including Civil Litigation, Conveyancing, Crime, Divorce, Personal Injury, Wills and Probate. The firm has a range of experienced staff qualified over the past four decades such as David Woods (qualified in 1984), ...


Aconveyancing Ltd: providing some extra time for people to call with questions. Having just an "a" in front of "conveyancing" did cause some minor issues when trying to research the firm. But also because most people end up cross with their conveyancer at some point during the sale or purchase...


The Injury Solicitor Salford: Most are and new firms know it can give peace of mind to prospective clients. This is quite justifiable in some circumstances such as for difficult cases including medical negligence, uninsured drivers, criminal injury claims and so on. But if you win, there may be. Unfortun...


RD Costings Ltd: This is not true for all firms or all types of cases though. That's because the chances of success are much lower and they lose quite a bit of money trying to help people with very difficult and often failing cases against government organisations. The majority of possible...


MGBe Legal Ltd: From the queries we've seen on our site this generally applies to Motor Offences, Criminal Law, Conveyancing, Debt Recovery and Immigration. But if you get someone not on the ball for your criminal defence or immigration - your whole life is affected. If you've visited a few...


McEwan Fraser Legal Scotland: But you'd be wrong. For all of our quick quotes, we would each have had to call up after to get a proper idea of how much the property might sell for. Firms that deal in divorce or bankruptcy tend not to have many public reviews about how things went. Such availabilit...


Fieldfisher Solicitors LLP: So what are people saying about the actual service on public boards? class="infoquote "not just another legal practice" "both courteous and efficient" "outcome has been highly successful every time" "have always provided excellent advice and service"< ...


Assured Probate Services: But will writing is actually a far less regulated industry than you might think . class="infoquote "With over 500 Associates nationwide, all of our Associates and in-house staff are fully qualified in advising on will writing, Lasting Powers of Attorney, trusts ...


Linkilaw Solicitors Ltd in London: A final word from Linkilaw about their services: class="infoquote "With straight forward and clear-cut advice, we help start-ups and entrepreneurs navigate law to help them succeed."< div>. Many people can also get it entirely wrong. Linkilaw is one of them and Linkila...


NV Legal Solicitors: The official website we link to above is www.nvlegal.co.uk with www.nvlegal.com currently being owned by someone else. There are also Blog News style articles with a varying range of information such as 'Mental Capacity Whose decision?'. So how can you check the real back...


SR Law Solicitors London: Naturally, the ones listed there are all incredibly positive and lengthy in their praise. The address could also lead to some of the usual typos we see with hyphenated URls or those that don't use the firm's name in them - e.g. We also saw that neither www.srlaw.co.uk or t...


DFA Law Solicitors: Sometimes when researching a company online people tend to just look up some reviews on their favourite review site and then decide. and they were all much like these snippets above. Property clients are heavily targeted by scammers due to the amounts of money being pushed a...


Ian Mallon Solicitors Ltd: That's why we have local, international, large, small, general practice, niche boutique, solicitors, barristers, accountants, paralegals and more. The firm's website is https secure so you should be fine entering your details into the contact forms. The website also pro...


TSABI Ltd Solicitors: The branding has the longer name but you will find most things such as regulatory bodies mentioned above and review pages use the acronym version. Their website is https secure so should be fine for entering your personal details on the contact forms. TSABI Ltd aka The Sol...


Thorpe Wilson Ltd: So what can we tell you about Thorpe Wilson Solicitors? Well you may have noticed that like many other firms, Thorpe Wilson make statements such as: class="infoquote "Specialists in the following fields: Wills and Probate, Immigration, Family Law, Employment, H...


Allsop Durn Dearlove: For example, Allsop Durn have a good chunk of a page talking about their fees. class="infoquote "Made every process very easy and was always keeping my partner updated" "A formal but personal service. We are pleased that most of our work comes from repeat cl...


MTA Solicitors LLP: It's not as common as them being registered with the SRA, so don't take the fact a solicitor is not registered as some negative feature. As this firm handles Personal Injury matters, we should just make a quick clarification about the slogans 'No Win, No Fee' and '100% ...


Apprise Legal Services: Quite often we've seen reviews about a firm that have clearly been put under the wrong company and even one star reviews with very positive comments (meaning someone has made a clicking error). he offered best practice advice and provide real insight into the how, what, wher...


Aina Khan Solicitors: In other words, it lists real accomplishments rather than vague hints at greatness whilst never crossing the line into obnoxious boasting. Normally we don't refer to a firm's own testimonials. You turned the case round completely"< div>. However when we clicked it directed u...


Will Taborn Ltd: Just watch out for adverts Google slips in at the top as they allow advertisers to stuff matching keywords in sometimes. We provide a transparent, efficient and cost-effective service for corporates, SMEs, Family Offices or individual clients requiring legal solutions."< d...


Hutcheon Law Solicitors: Plus none of the variants we tried such as www.hutcheonsolicitors.co.uk .com seemed to be owned by anyone yet. Worst of all are the people who don't do either and just act as if they are personal injury specialists in order to get your personal details so they can sell the...


Penn Chambers Ltd: You can usually find other information such as the practice's case range, staff, other offices, alternative contact details and so on. So what sort of things can you look for to distinguish which firm has the experience and expertise to handle your case best? We've been wo...
