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:

GloverPriest Solicitors Ltd: This may be reserved for house purchases sales only though. Certainly, if there is a recurring theme of incompetence in the reviews then that's something to take note of. However we did spot: class="infoquote "We give you peace of mind through a free 30 minute consulta...


Jarmans Solicitors Sittingbourne: It could also mean they've researched what's possible and organised the most sought after information so people can view it. Firms should not be forever stained for the actions of one bad staff member who was fired along time ago. Our clients receive City of London expertise...


My 33 Legal Limited: The issues are very personal so it typically doesn't occur to people to leave comments in the same way unless actually asked to do so by the solicitor. Words like 'modern', 'friendly', 'maximum', 'jargon-free', and so on sound great. 9 times out of 10 it's meaningless. That ...


Hammond Trotter Solicitors Ltd: Losing a license can often mean losing a job, let alone the school run, grocery shopping, weekends away, nights out, kids clubs, etc, etc, etc. The ones above are taken from the independent review sites. There is a reason most people seek out a motor offence specialists rath...


Driscoll Kingston Solicitors: The rest are all 4-5 star reviews saying the company is great. "No win, no fee" only means that if you lose there are no fees to pay. More than a dozen snippets packed with odd grammar, spelling mistakes, and a mix of quotes commentaries. Many people only think of specialis...

SBW Lawyers Ltd: Certainly there are enough law firms in the North West of England covering personal injury matters that if a firm didn't treat the client well - there's plenty of other options. class="infoquote "Throughout the claims process our team of expert lawyers will speak to yo...


IWC Estate Planning & Management Ltd: They then take that case to a third party solicitor to deal with whilst they act as a very-well-paid middleman. 2002 is a decent enough time for any firm to build up expertise, local contacts, and refine a system to be faster, more efficient and more importantly - cost effe...


Briffa Intellectual Property Solicitors: He speaks fluent German and French and still works in the music industry on the side. There are many solicitors out there that deal with Intellectual Property having studied law at University. It's really not. Finally managing to convince Briffa Legal Ltd to partne...


Helix Law Solicitors: Again, this is rarer than you would think and another very positive point for Helix Law as a firm that goes beyond. A quick note on navigation because, as you can see, the official website of the firm is hyphenated - www.helix-law.co.uk - with the www.helixlaw.co.uk v...


Leech and Co Solicitors Ltd: However if more legal advice providers could stretch to one late night a week or one Saturday clinic a month even - such availability offers always go down well with potential clients . Our ambition is to build a law firm that is based on long-term, trusting relationships w...


Joanna Connolly Solicitor Advocates: Whilst they don't say much about free initial consultations, the website does mention the Conditional Fee Arrangements (CFA's) I talked about before, but - again unusually - they also offer a Pay As You Go service. Often a conditional fee arrangement is put in place where th...


CFG Law: So there must be a reason that CFG have created this whilst the majority of others have not. class="infoquote "We work closely with many charities and professionals that support families and survivors of serious injury."< div> This statement is supported by the ...


Hodge Jones and Allen Solicitors: We list firms with more than a dozen office locations. On their website you'll find a full list of staff with photos, basic histories and specialities for each. (No, seriously.) We didn't see such things on this occasion though. All above 4☆. This one is from t...

CSL Law Croydon: However, 1to1Legal is not one of them. Surely that is like giving Burger King a negative review for not selling pizzas? The firm's website is concise, lacking the common chunks of sales pitches and flowery language we've seen appearing on others. There's not much they...


RSR Law Croydon: Confused? Well, take this example. I'm guessing that when they did away with injury claims, it was time to overhaul the acronyms to? I have a hard enough time remembering the one for strokes. The quirks and matching ideals didn't hurt either. Our regular section on navi...


Johnsons Solicitors Nottingham: Just as an aside (and we'll probably get complaints about this) but the 1☆ review we saw where the client complained about his solicitor acting friendly with the police? We can't understand that. That was it, and despite having never been a criminal solicitor - I...


Autologistic Solutions Limited: That doesn't mean the 18 year statement is false. According to the site: class="infoquote "The app will detect that you have been involved in an incident (and) will automatically save the last 15 seconds of your journey along with 5 seconds after the accident. We ful...


Philip Nam White Collar Legal: Of course such rules usually don't work out as you'd expect - (e.g. Then underneath the list it states: class="infoquote "... We get dozens of communications a day about joining the 1to1Legal network from various firms handling a range of case types from all par...


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. A barrister has to be qualified to do so, but being able to hire a barrister directly to represent your interests in court can sa...


Kings Court Trust Probate: We also would like to see some case examples. KCT's Chief Executive, Tom Curran, https: www.legalfutures.co.uk latest-news exclusive-leading-probate-provider-becomes-abs" said at the time< a>: class="infoquote "It has been our long-standing goal to be regulated unde...


EHL Solicitors UK: Their website has modern features, and older ones. Then in 2014 the firm's Managing Director was crowned Boss of the Year for Leicestershire. At the time of writing this, there are currently 15 EHL offices across England : Beeston, Bulwell, Buxton, Carlton, CityGate, H...


Davey Law: Their contact page not only provides details about available parking nearby, but also alternative postcodes to use in your satnav so that you end up in exactly the right spot. As for the staff, I wasn't exaggerating when I said they were well experienced. The firm...


Meresbrook Pollard Ltd: More than 1000 solicitors had to close up shop last year alone. No photo opportunities of the staff feeding homeless people, no self-released 'news stories' with plenty of flattering descriptions of the firm. We've done work for hundreds of them, are regularly in contact wit...


Balfour and Manson Solicitors: As is www.balfour-manson.com and www.balfourandmanson.co.uk, which brings us to another point. Their expertise in private client and family law work will add even more to our expanding range of services for customers in Aberdeen. Just for the sake of clarity - I'll admit to ...


MurrayHay Solicitors: Luckily, the website is the firm's name, the name is simple, and it's a regular tld with the .co.uk - however the www.murrayhay.com address does not seem to belong to them and was displaying some weird stuff when we looked. They hand the project over to some web designers wh...


Thompsons Solicitors Glasgow: It's probably because of this that their site has considerably sized News and Blog sections , because the articles within are most likely targeted at industry professionals. On it's own though, Scottish Thompsons is one of the largest specialist personal injury practi...


Alison Ashworth Solicitors: Such is their expertise, that they are often called up to write for motoring publications, keeping the nation's drivers abreast of the issues which could affect their driving licence. For motoring cases, it is even less. They have in-depth specialised knowledge, and e...


Jackson and Canter now Jackson and Lees: This slightly more 'modern' approach, meant that we were surprised to see Jackson Canter buy such an old, established, well-known firm like Lees. So what happened? Jackson Canter purchased Lees Solicitors, a 126-year-old law firm also based in Merseyside. None ...


Accident Claims Scotland: Today, all of us here at 1to1 sit behind a desk trying to get you all direct to a law firm that can help. Plus, you can expect to see other changes around here to make sure that people coming through us have choice when looking for legal services. Accident Claims Scotla...


Lambert Pugh Conveyancing Solicitors: Both are solicitors, and both similarly state years of experience in sales, purchases, leases, etc. A large portion of the content is devoted to help articles. For Commercial Conveyancing, you'll be handled by John 'Lambert' or Ian Taylor. Conveyancing these days can g...


Newry's McShanes Law Firm: McShanes claim such a reputation but (thankfully) do not cover their website with crass stories about the, often uncommon, super-large payouts achieved. Established in 1973, McShanes is one of the leading legal firms in Northern Ireland. There are four at the time of writing...


Taylor Rose Solicitors Limited TTKW: If you go searching for their site, the main one should be listed at the top of the search results. Being able to actually see and hear their staff? I'll bet many of you disappeared off to watch a few videos before continuing with this article. Not 2s, 3s or 4s. So much so,...


Atkinson Rose (Amit Patel) Employment Solicitors: However we don't see the same priority given to Employment issues for some reason. Some are directly relevant such as having worked in-house for British Airways as an advisor on employee matters or advising on contract matters at Western Union. One thing we would recom...


BarristerDirect Ltd based in Manchester: They also determine one point of contact for your claim within the firm, and aim to answer or respond to all telephone calls the same day and client's emails within 24 hours.. They handle all the usual types of accident claims such as road traffic accidents, public liability...


Hythe Solicitors Robson & Co, near Folkestone in Southern Kent: But personally, taking the rest of the content into consideration (and as the person actually writing this review) I believe it is gender-free expression. So, we'd have to count that as a plus. With Wills and probate, Robson's state that their: color="green "personal ...


Brearleys Solicitors Brighouse: Of them all though, we could only see any real extra benefit (beyond what already exists on the main site) - from the Check My Compensation information. Obviously if you are looking for road accident personal injury help, then distance isn't usually a huge issue. if they are...


Law in Cornwall Ltd: 'No win no fee' is not the same thing as '100% compensation', despite both being thrown around in various law firm's adverts. They cover the usual personal injury types of claims, such as work accidents, accidents in a public place, back or spinal injuries, slips trips ...


Julia Brown Solicitor @ Family Legal Solicitors: They offer all clients an initial low-cost advice session where the first hour of our time is charged at just £75. She was thorough and methodical in her approach and was very supportive throughout the court process. The firm can help in complex financial situati...


Anupamah Huneewoth Solicitors: Huneewoth does not have a custom built website. But there were no records of when Huneewoth Solicitors as a firm was created. First order of business is to find an About Us section. This week I was asked why all the reviews I write are mostly positive. The firm's founding so...


MacLachlans Solicitors Gillingham: www.maclachlansolicitors.com is not owned by them. MacLachlan simply state their firm opened in 1998. But unless they had a negative experience or have been encouraged by the firm to go and leave a review - the number of people that take the time to comment on their solicito...


Marcus Andreen Commercial Law: As a commercial lawyer with more than 20 years’ experience providing legal support to companies and individuals - his clients are mainly fast-growing, successful businesses for the IT, telecoms, e-commerce and communications sectors. Marcus Andreen's background in both ...


Hartley Bain Solicitors in Stratford, Greater London: Family Law - including divorce, civil partnership law, separation, cohabitation, financial matters, children etc. Because in this instance, the person will have been asked for this at the conclusion of their case which makes it highly unlikely that the testimonial was incent...


Debt Solve UK: They state that their customers continue to recommend them to other businesses because of this. Amongst DebtSolve's services is the Quick Check facility. The company owed the debt may have to accept less money or the same money but over a longer period of time. It might...


Taylor Bracewell Doncaster: Taylor Bracewell, however, did not have an "About Us" page for us to peruse. The "About Us" page is a standard feature of any businesses website. Their commercial law partner and head of the business team, Sharon Beck, has over 20 years experience with business affairs such ...


KTPSolicitors: He is an Accredited Family Mediator, helping clients talk face to face with those involved in the case rather than racking up the legal bills with only the lawyers speaking back and forth. Back to the name, we did spot a separate trading name - South Wales Marketing Ltd...


Countrywide Property Lawyers Ltd: www.countrywide.co.uk is also available, however www.countrywide.com goes to an American firm. So without the aid of *small print, does that mean they are in fact the biggest? Well, whilst you may scoff at the source - https: en.wikipedia.org wiki Countrywide" Wikip...


Michael Jefferies Injury Lawyers @ Jefferies Solicitors Ltd: They point out that things such as depreciating value of the car, road tax increases, and so on are yet to be discovered. The main people to note would probably be Michael Jefferies (Managing Director), Nina Ramsden (Director), and Kathryn Harland (Personal Injury Solic...


CBTRL Wendy Amey: Specialises in the assessment and treatment of stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, trauma, PTSD and addiction. This is offered throughout the UK and Ireland. Hence the web address of www.cbtrl.com is an acronym created from other recognisable industry-related acronyms...


RJGill Solicitors: Either way, it's probably best to bookmark the correct site to ensure no typing or search errors.. We seek them out, research them, and if they offer something we don't already have on our network - we include them. RJGill may seem to have a small range focus targeting ...


RGSolicitors: They offer face to face, online, email or phone contact and promise to provide you with a direct number to the person handling your case. Whilst some firms mention 'free' discussions, this can often be with a non-qualified individual who can only asses whether the firm deals...


Amnesty Solicitors: Things like winning awards, having highly accredited solicitors, an active online presence, and so on. Whilst we were already very aware that people want specialists when it comes to motor offences, criminal defence, and bankruptcy - not alot of people were too concerned abo...


BMDLaw Solicitors: This is with a "member of our staff who will be extremely experienced in dealing with family law" which may mean that it is not with an actual solicitor. Their "Business Angel" setup grabs considerable focus once you've delved into the site. As the .uk will take some ...


Blain Boland & Co Solicitors: They consider themselves color="green "a refreshing change from more traditional law firms" < font> and have engaged (however mildly) with things such as social media. When it comes to law firms, describing one as "established" or "new" is a far more subjective game of sem...


Qdos Solicitors Legal Services: Copy pasting from the internet is regularly tried, but rarely a good idea. As a business ourselves, one key feature that stood out was that their website provides an online store where contractors, landlords, businesses or individuals are able to buy a range of produc...


Ashmans Solicitors Ltd: We've issued praise and criticism where appropriate, but have always tried to cover the things relating to the firm as a whole. For example, if you search for Ashmans Solicitors on a search engine - you won't find much about them. So that even when you're left in the dark ab...


Mulcare Jenkins: There's real clarity and an obvious goal to work with clients outside of the typical 9 to 5. The five registered solicitors at Mancini Legal have a combined total of 112 years experience. We've been staring at law firm's websites for nearly 20 years so notice the subtle dif...


Claims Funding UK: They'll then need to request various documents from your solicitor to verify you and your situation. We read through the FAQs, and a few points stood out to us. Their website states that applications are approved within days, and has full page flow-chart breakdown of t...


Greg Almond Solicitors Manchester: We've never caught the bus in Greater Manchester to tell you whether getting around is easy. Almond Solicitors promises to be all of that. They promise that their team will always explain what will be involved in the legal process and to make sure that you are kept in t...


Cubism Law London: They even handle different case types than the head office such as Family Law, including: divorce, separation, civil partnerships, pre-nuptial agreements, child abduction, grandparents rights and more. They do cover some business related problems such as employment law,...


Furse Sanders Ltd: They can handle Agriculture and Rural matters, Commercial Law, Family Law, Property, Wills, Probate, and Powers of Attorney with regular 9am-5pm opening hours and half day Saturdays. I wanted to have my staff treat people the way I do. We want to you feel you have as much co...


Else Law: Not even a week later, someone else got in touch recommending Else's services. Anyone who has ever had to work with solicitors will tell you that is rarity. During those discussions I inevitably dove further into Else Solicitor's website and the relatively sparse inform...


Lee Dowling LMD Law: He has been a Partner and a Consultant Solicitor to various firms in London. Commercial Contracts, Shareholder Agreements, Partnership Deeds, Debt Recovery, Employment & Contractors, Data Protection, Intellectual Property, Website Legal Assistance, Developer Contracts and so...


GoComplain Consumer Complaints Online: That's almost as bad as the Citizen's Advice Bureau ... After those three times, we demanded a refund from Which?. Not once. Sometimes you have a case that requires a bit of legal knowledge and help, but not much. Aside from their general consumer rights work, they als...


Starck Uberoi Solicitors: That probably doesn't help you with your decision on whether to use the firm for legal services, but it just seemed too interesting not to mention. We'd advise bookmarking the official site once you're on it, and copy pasting any email addresses rather than trying to type th...


Acumen Law Ltd: Obviously we've linked to the main website which is www.acumenbusinesslaw.co.uk hosted on an https secure setup (the green padlock in your browser). But if there is nothing actually special or unique about a firm except the fact they are trying to look trendy, then the attem...


Archways Solicitors Manchester Ltd: We've already made the point a dozen times about how firms boasting "established in 1818" don't actually have 200+ years experience and you could still end up with a solicitor that only qualified a week ago. LawConnect enables us to share documents with you without exp...


Mercantile Barristers Ltd: It's unusual because it's a great thing that the public should be more aware of. Unlike the launch of 'No Win No Fee' back in the 90s, for some reason 'Direct Access' as a slogan has not caught on. Whilst that paragraph and others might be considered to negate their...


Kent Traffic Law Maidstone: That doesn't mean general practice firms can't have a decent individual assigned to handle such things. law for the past ten years and one who's been doing nothing but motor offence cases over the same period - then we would consider that a "no-brainer" unless there were s...


Michael Rose & Baylis Ltd: We therefore highly recommend bookmarking the site once you're on it to be sure. Unfortunately, far too many firms devote an abnormal amount of energy to their image - as if they couldn't class themselves as a 'modern' firm with less than a thousand followers on Twitter or ...


Bradford & Son Solicitors: the two comments that say they felt pushed off onto junior staff PAs. We were actually introduced to Bradford & Son because we knew someone who went to work with them. Also the www.bradfordandson.com version doesn't seem to be owned by the firm so it is only the main "and" a...
