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:

The Legal Practice Solicitors: Obviously we think highly of the firm because we've added them to our database of searchable legal professionals. They typically provide any alternate trading names, all office locations, languages spoken, case types handled, and most importantly - the qualification ...


Young & Co Solicitors: That's because practically every house purchase sale in England and Wales takes longer and is more complicated than the buyer seller wants. class="infoquote "We pride ourselves in putting the client interest at the heart of everything we do."< div> Every law firm...


Lefevres Scotland Ltd: For example, Lefevres are listed in the Legal Aid board database. But if your case wins the solicitor you hire may take a cut of your settlement. The name is quite unique so any searches for 'lefevers solicitors', 'lefevere's law', or other commonly expected errors all...


David Stinson & Co Solicitors: That can be a trickier claim to navigate and we've been told by people within the industry that prior experience can really help . class="infoquote "very professional and got my wife not only the money but the outcome she deserved" "My solicitor was always polit...


Cook's Solicitors: For example those firms stating 'founded in 1881' or even older dates. Put simply, if a firm is doing really badly or has a bad reputation in a local area - then the branding will be changed. No really, firms claiming they are three hundred years old as if that gives t...

Swain and Co Solicitors: However the best website for getting information about a law firm in our opinion is The Law Society of England & Wales. Thankfully you can actually check this claim if the firm is registered with the English Welsh law society. class="infoquote "We provide a n...


Fentimans My Law Matters: We can honestly say that in the past two decades we've never seen that happen . But the main thing people tend to look for when researching any firm is their online reviews. They provide all alternate trading names, other office locations, languages spoken, case types...


Frazer Coogans Solicitors: Some claiming hundreds of years of history behind them. But enough about what we think, what are previous clients saying about the firm? class="infoquote "Frazer Coogans always gave us accurate, informative and helpful information for us to make decisions" "Woul...


Burton & Co Quality Solicitors: But rather than simply place an extra logo on each law firm's website - they all put the words quality solicitors in front of their name. There is a simply huge number of scams targeting law clients right now. There are negative reviews from people who were told they didn'...


One Law Solicitors & Barristers: So always make sure you're on the correct site and never discuss payments via email. . For example, this morning the other law firm we wrote an article on had a 5 star rating for their 'excellent desserts'. Something to keep in mind when researching or trying to find the fi...


Beers Solicitors LLP: If you https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk office 462733 beers-llp" check out the page< a> for the firm you're interested in you'll be able to see other office locations that might be closer to you, any alternate trading names, languages spoken by staff, and so on. The on...


Disrepair Claims UK: Obviously the official site we link to above is www.disrepairclaim.co.uk but neither www.disrepairclaim.com or www.disrepairclaims.co.uk .com redirect you there. for personal injury, such as pneumonia, asthma, gastrointestinal issues, or even anxiety and depression ... There...


Simper Law: An easy mistake to make if typing things in late at night. At first glance Simper Law looks like a regular high street style setup with standard offices and several staff. However, we recommend always reading through the actual comments rather than relying on j...

RM Solicitors: However we've been reviewing law firms and trawling through dozens of such websites daily for over twenty years now . Normally you will be asked to sign an insurance document to cover the costs of your case. This may sound like a lot and you may find a solicitor that agrees...


Ullah Law Associates: ULA apparently started out with just a single case type in mind, having set up as: class="infoquote "... For example, the biggest scam going around the UK just now is when fraudsters email clients saying the bank details for their house deposit have changed. They...


Taylor Price Legal Ltd: (No, really. But whilst their business image and reputation amongst peers seems solid - what are the previous clients saying? class="infoquote "dedicated quality time and worked overtime to sort out our matters" "very professional and reliable service, he explaine...


Michael Leighton Jones Solicitors: There are still plenty of firms out there that will charge a consultation fee or even full hourly rates for the first meeting.. When you are flicking through law firm reviews remember that people are far less likely to share their feelings about their messy divorce than the...


Milners Law LLP: So how do the independent forums look? class="infoquote "Professional, supportive and very responsive" "have the kind of tenacity you want from a law firm" "offered thorough, honest advice and was so efficient and friendly" "Emails are responded to ver...


KRS Wills & Probate: They provide alternative trading names for each legal practice, case types handled, other office locations, languages spoken, and most usefully - the qualification dates of each solicitor registered with them. Whereas if a company says 'we have been helping people for over t...


Branch Austin McCormick Solicitors: It's a https: en.wikipedia.org wiki Phishing" phishing scam< a> that's been used for many years now. There were also several comments about how fast the process had been whether for a property sale or immigration matter. So giving the impression they are well established...


Trojan Solicitors: The majority did so simply because they received an email that told them the bank details for their solicitor had changed. That always bothers us and we think it's far too common a practice across all industries. Thanks to the creation of the internet and the resulting moder...


Cheshire Estates and Legal Ltd: Especially if this was the umpteenth law site you've visited today as they can start to appear unbelievably similar after a while. We've seen someone leave a negative review about a Criminal Law firm for refusing to take on their Divorce. We typically don't quote reviews lis...


Fultons Estate Agents: There were even comments we would consider completely useless such as "I will take my business elsewhere!" with no clarification about why. Despite not being overly 'nationalised' about most things, this is something we do feel a little frustrated at. As that informa...


Hooper Hyde Solicitors: The official site we link to above is www.hooperhyde.com with www.hooperhyde.co.uk not currently redirecting you there. It's very common. Certainly the parent company CLP has considerable resources behind it and a huge number of well experienced solicitors . The pract...


Antony Hodari Legal Services: Something you'd want in any company really. When it comes to legal firms we absolutely recommend reading reviews rather than flicking through star ratings alone. Just watch out for ads using keyword matching to display. Over the past few years alone https: www.theguardia...


Fair Result Divorce: Typically it's only cases such as litigation where firms may do considerable work upfront with an aim to getting paid near the end of the case instead. This includes direct access barristers, non-legal solutions, and mediation service providers. Sometimes a barrister without...


Dylan Nair Ltd Solicitors: But it's really not a negative sign if a law firm you're looking up has few or even zero online comments about them. The Law Society of England & Wales has an excellent site for this and Dylan Nair & Co just happen to be registered with them. They have a similar one under ...


Mckie Legal Solicitors Ltd: Normally we would have a mini-rant about 'protecting clients from scammers', but that's not really necessary here. We've covered many firms that proudly start off their website's sales pitch with 'as a large city firm ...' or something similar. It's not unusual for soli...


Jacobs Law Solicitors: If you are looking for help with a property matter, this sort of online care is even more important https: monzo.com blog we-sent-our-house-deposit-to-a-fraudster-who-posed-as-our-lawyer" due to a long-term scamming technique< a> of getting clients buying selling a p...


Allan Argue and Co Solicitors: Normally there is just a few bits of basic inforation in some https: www.lawscot.org.uk find-a-solicitor ?Name=argue&Postcode=&type=firm" search results< a>. There isn't even a stand alone page of information for most Scottish law firms on the Law Society site. It was onl...


Springle Solicitors: Then on top of that, families are much further away from the stereotypical husband wife 2.6 children arrangement of old. class="infoquote "We're independently owned and we believe that smaller is better. The dog's ... Something much rarer for a law firm than you might...


BLZ Solicitors Ltd: A switch of sides from a solicitor is not something to be taken lightly and should really mark as a big plus when comparing services. A last sales-pitchy statement from the firm's site: class="infoquote "We are a friendly, approachable and professional firm that...


Hawkridge & Co Solicitors: They involve sometimes lengthy co-operation and the maintenance of certain high standards . Most firms around the UK are signed up to at least one law society. class="infoquote "We are a specialist legal firm providing a range of services in the Medway town of Gilling...


Pacific Law: Don't just rely on star ratings. This new offering is a specialist Estate Planning service including Wills and Probably matters. We've also seen dozens of negative reviews followed by comments from the firm stating 'this person has never been a client of ours'. But sadly t...


ABS Lawyers Ltd: So finding feedback from previous clients about how true these statements about quality customer service are, should be easy. Indeed the majority of comments we read were written very strangely. Luckily there are quite a few good resources to find some deeper and more in...


Stenfield Solicitors Ltd: Searching for the current branding of 'stenfield solicitors' will typically bring up the correct site. That wasn't just the legal industry either. A last word from the firm's site: class="infoquote "98% of clients said they were happy with the result we achieved for th...


Khan Law Glasgow: Sometimes based on nothing more than an official-looking email telling them the bank details for payment have changed. The quote above is from the Khan Law website and, in our opinion, is being used appropriately. So, yes. That's because we've seen law firms with five star ...


Deo Volente Legal: You may get a forty year experienced solicitor from a law firm brand that started up yesterday. Not just in the legal industry either, but generally. class="infoquote "We create value for our clients, our people and our community"< div> If you https: solicito...


Suhail Ahmad at Richmond Legal: Whilst people may be quite happy to jump online and discuss their new toaster, a local restaurant, or even a house sale - they are less likely to rush and inform everyone about how their bankruptcy, divorce, child custody or contentious probate case is going. If you h...


Trust Inheritance Limited: We don't just add anyone. However we hope the information and links provided above at least show why we were more than happy to add Trust Inheritance to our database of recommended firms. We've talked a lot before about specialists versus general practice firms. A last wor...


Bilkus and Boyle: Be aware that no genuine web address can have an ampersand such as www.bilkus&boyle.com and none of the name-only variants such as www.bilkusboyle.com or the .co.uk's seem to be owned by anyone. Typically one side is always unhappy at how a sale has gone either due to timesc...


Catteralls in Wakefield: The brand seems to be quite unique and therefore should be easy to find each time you want to come back to it. 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 (199...


Penerley Solicitors: Unfortunately this has not really spread to law firms as much as everywhere else. But so far we've not seen anything too extreme such as beanbag chairs in the conference room. The quote above is from the website of a Commercial Law specialist called Penerley , based i...


Conveyancing Search Providers: However, as already mentioned at the outset of this piece, there often isn't as much to go on when it comes to service providers to the law firms we often write about. SDLT.co.uk help stop stamp tax form rejections by pre-populating the forms and providing a printed SDLT5 ce...


Special Education Needs Lawyer: If you've already been through a dozen law firm's sites today looking for one to help and didn't notice - just try typing a few of their company names into Google and see the opening hours that pop up. Criminal Injury and Uninsured Driver cases are often like this because th...


Pump Court Chambers Barristers: It doesn't matter to them. So choosing one is just as much a point of discernment as any other law firm selection. So how can you work out the best one for you between the lines? class="infoquote "Our barristers and clerks are approachable, straightforward and focused ...


Mason Bullock Solicitors: class="infoquote "most of our cases can be dealt with successfully via phone and email"< div> The firm has been around for a while so if you see mentions of a Mason Bullock starting in 2018 plus another one before that based over in Northampton - they are the same...


Lindsays Solicitors Scotland: consistently exceeds everything I ask of him"< div> The majority of reviews were very positive indeed.

Aspire Licensing & Administrative Services: provide advice and guidance should a contested hearing need to be arranged and assist with representation ..."< div> The list of services Aspire state on their website is extensive. class="infoquote "We can take your initial instructions, provide relevant training...


OTS Immigration Solicitors: If you search for news articles on any company it's good idea to make sure to put "quotation marks" around the name of the firm otherwise you will get a lot of irrelvant pieces. Words such as 'leading', 'modern', 'expertise', and especially 'award-winning' are used so frequ...


Reid and Black Solicitors: The majority are all like this and very positive. If you compare it to https: www.lawsoc-ni.org reid-black-solicitors-limited528" the page about this firm< a> on the Northern Ireland Law Society website I think you might agree. Reid Black clearly want to help people see...

The Injury Solicitor Salford: But the start date of any law firm is not the same as having experience. If you're ever in doubt, the various Law Society databases are a great resource. There is no 200-year-old solicitor sat behind a desk imparting wisdom to the rest of the staff. As mentioned in the news ...


RD Costings Ltd: This is a costs drafting firm aimed at lawyers themselves. The fact RD Costings specifically seek out these types of claimants to help with their case is not the only reason we decided to add them to the network. class="infoquote "RD Costings ... The focus is ...


MGBe Legal Ltd: Please note that www.mgbelegal.co.uk does not redirect you there. If you check out https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk person 47870 maria-gabriella-bettiga" the page for< a> the firm's main immigration solicitor, Gabriella Bettiga, for example - you'll see that she ...

Fieldfisher Solicitors LLP: It's pretty much a universal given at this point. 100% compensation guaranteed means there will be no fees if you WIN either.

Assured Probate Services: class="infoquote "We are ... If you've read a few of our other articles, you'll know there is usually something unique or alternative about the firms we choose to review. We could email you from an @amazon.co.uk address right now saying your payments have failed. Onc...


Linkilaw Solicitors Ltd in London: Even then their focus was still business clients. You never know where the next scam might come from though so pay attention to the web address you are on and be aware that it's very easy to fake the "Sender:" box of an email.

NV Legal Solicitors: For example, a firm with five solicitors each with only two years of experience under their belts might state 'we have over a decade of combined experience'. If you check https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk office 555160 nv-legal-limited" the page for this firm< a> y...


SR Law Solicitors London: This idea that the firm isn't consumed by fees and time-monitoring is also reflected in their website where you'll find https: www.sr-law.co.uk articles debt-collection-by-small-businesses " a genuine help article section< a>. Not only that, when it turned out the s...
