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 Injury Solicitor Salford: But several things stood out to us which we thought we would share. But we also add firms that are large, small, niche, general practice, or just an alternative resource such as Direct Access barristers or Mediation Providers. We should briefly discuss this statement more ...


RD Costings Ltd: class="infoquote "RD Costings ... This will not exceed 25%."< div> This may look like a simple statement about fees. 100% compensation guaranteed means there are no fees if your case wins. The focus is usually on Road Accidents, Work Injuries and Slip Trips. On t...


MGBe Legal Ltd: Also, MGBe Legal is the trading name of M&G Bettiga Limited if you see it come up during your own research. But until you've actually used the firm, how can you judge whether this is going to be true? One of the best resources for detailed information about a firm or an in...


McEwan Fraser Legal Scotland: But you'd be wrong. class="infoquote "Use our Instant Property Valuation Tool to get an instant, online estimate of what your property in 39 seconds!"< div> It sounds good, and it works as described. Phone the official number in the headed paper you've already be...


Fieldfisher Solicitors LLP: For others, they like to see newspaper snippets about the firm helping in the local community or being asked their opinion for an article. Such firms we often say can lose that personal touch and reduce complaints from unhappy clients to mere collateral damage, rather than a...

Assured Probate Services: Once you have the name of the law firm you can use the various resource we already recommend such as searching the relevant Law Society's website for background and qualification details. For example, the APS Legal & Associates main website does have the usual testimonials p...


Linkilaw Solicitors Ltd in London: But with a new branding setup, web address change, and expansion into more areas of corporate law - we thought it better to write a whole new piece rather than just update the old one. A final word from Linkilaw about their services: class="infoquote "With straight for...


NV Legal Solicitors: Whilst it can be common for senior solicitors to have their more junior staff do large chunks of the grunt work - that is something you probably will never know about. You can end up having someone's secretary as your only point of contact. In other words, someone has been i...


SR Law Solicitors London: Thankfully, if the firm you're interested in is based within England or Wales they are most likely registered with the national Law Society. That last snippet for example indicates that whoever took the reviewer's call must have listened properly and for some time . So what...


DFA Law Solicitors: DFA Law are with The Law Society of England & Wales and if you https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk office 466115 dfa-law-llp" check the page about them< a> on the organisation's website - you'll be provided with quite a bit of information. Right up to Michael Nadin (quali...


Ian Mallon Solicitors Ltd: Some are certainly more interesting than others. We're sure the firm's extra step of translating the site to cater for that has not gone unappreciated. The firm's website is https secure so you should be fine entering your details into the contact forms. Just make sure ...


Asghar & Co Solicitors: For example, the last firm we reviewed had a lot of negative comments about how clients were constantly talking to secretaries and junior staff rather than the solicitor that was meant to be in charge of the case. https: www.thetimes.co.uk static connected-families conveya...


Thorpe Wilson Ltd: So whether your case is an injury at work, in a car, or on a pavement - the core practice is the same. 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="in...

Allsop Durn Dearlove: Having crawled through thousands of reviews over the past couple of decades, we're accutely aware of just how regularly people make mistakes. We would assume it means the firm actively takes feedback seriously and tries to keep an eye on it. Is that uncommon? Yes. We are pl...


MTA Solicitors LLP: A good firm will always make sure their fee structure is understandable and transparent , but it doesn't hurt to ask. www.mtapersonalinjury.co.uk currently does not display anything but there is a www.mtasolicitors.com website. So that's a good indication they've handled qu...


Apprise Legal Services: Google sadly allows advertisers to stuff the searched-for keywords into adverts. We assume the web address is meant to be taken as AppriseLS. However if you own a business, have an ex-wife, children, life insurance, etc. class="infoquote "The firm has many years of exp...


Aina Khan Solicitors: But what does that actually mean? How many firms are in this never-mentioned list of 'leading firms' for that practice to be one of them? Ten? A hundred? A thousand? Again, it's just marketing jargon. That could mean two solicitors with 10 years experience each. Founder & ...


Will Taborn Ltd: class="infoquote "We assemble the most efficient legal team for your specific needs; by combining the most suitable people for the matter at hand we centre on striking the right balance between cost and the desired output."< div> Unlike a business law solicitor wh...


Hutcheon Law Solicitors: For example, if you've been injured in a car accident resulting in whiplash that gave you pain for a couple of weeks - it's not as if one firm might get you 3,000 and another get you 10,000. There is just as much chance that you'll get a 1-year-experienced solicitor from a...


Penn Chambers Ltd: Don't underestimate the usefullness of such basic information either. We noticed though, that some of the reviews on the third party boards are actually the ones used on the Penn Chambers' website: class="infoquote "Sound advice and the professional approach to my di...


Frank Rogers Motoring Solicitor: So that's good. There is a Law Society website for each area. Note that many law firm's websites will make a statement such as "40 years of experience within the firm" or "20 years of combined experience". class="infoquote "Notices of Intended Prosecution can be def...


OJ Solicitors Glasgow: However we do try to make sure you have varied options in the type of legal services available. The most common tld variants of www.oj-solicitors.com and www.ojsolicitors.com are similarly not going to get you to the correct place. This is something we've said repeatedly e...


Kudos Legal Solicitors: For all we know, Glasgow are getting all the good reviews and Preston are simply average. So despite many law firms making a fuss of their heritage - in our opinion it's meaningless in relation to the experiece of the actual staff working there. The official www.kudosl...


Serious Injury Law Solicitors: Obviously the firm has the standard testimonials on their website. The person was ranting about 'capitalist law firms!'. The firm themselves list a range of trademarks trading names including 'Serious', 'Serious Law', 'Serious Injury Law' and 'Helping to rebuild lives'....


5 Essex Court Chambers & Partners: https: www.legal500.com firms 9330-chambers-of-jason-beer-qc 9330-london-england " The Legal 500< a> page about them also uses similar wording in it's praise: class="infoquote "An excellent set with a stellar reputation, 5 Essex Court consistently appears in high-pr...


Avery & Walters Ltd: Another thing to watch for is how you appraise public reviews. So don't think we're pushing that bookmarking stuff just to promote the firm. If you read through some of the negative reviews though, one accuses them of 'racism' because they asked her to provide a passp...


AWH Legal Ltd: But you'll never a find a firm that has everything. There are always a few things we would like to see from firms. Every solicitor that handles Personal Injury for example should never take any money up front or even if the case loses (the infamous no win, no fee) . W...


HH Law Ltd: AND from start to finish (which only took 4 months) HH kept me informed on a regular basis" "They kept me updated throughout the whole process and got my case solved really quickly"< div> There are dozens of similar reviews across Trustpilot, Google, Yell, etc. How...


Lawcommercial Trading Ltd: Always a good sign. Another stated how they had been serving the local community for over a hundred years simply because they bought the building from a longer established firm. The same goes for www.lawcommsolicitors.co.uk or www.lawcommsolicitors.com or any of the hyphena...


Redwood Collections Ltd: I was very pleased with the outcome ..."< div> Oddly the vast majority of the reviews are positive on Google, Yelp, Yellow Pages and others. Our typical commission rate is 15% in most instances."< div> Another very good incentive to use a debt agency such as these ...


AJLO Solicitors: Accredited legal professionals undergo a rigorous process including demonstrating extensive experience, expertise and high standards of practice. But if you search for the firm name plus the name of the town, you should get the correct site. These each typically have their...


GloverPriest Solicitors Ltd: We therefore absolutely recommend bookmarking the official site once you're on it and of course never discuss personal bank details via email. So seeing direct contact details for solicitors on the Glover Priest's site and text about solicitors dealing with matters from s...


Jarmans Solicitors Sittingbourne: If a firm has a handful of bad reviews ten years ago then nothing but 5 star reviews ever since - then we would consider that important to note. Obviously never discuss payment matters via email, and we'll have a last word from the firm: class="infoquote "We think outs...


My 33 Legal Limited: I hope it helped at least. Unfortunately when it comes to legal matters, people are not as motivated to leave reviews compared to their local Chinese Take-Away or the online Trampolines-R-Us type firms. Not by a long shot. You'd probably be surprised at how many appa...


Hammond Trotter Solicitors Ltd: There are 5 stars for one location but only 3 stars for the other. However, if it's something more serious and your whole life could change without the ability to drive yourself around - then the cost is less of a factor. There is a motor offence firm still active at the ti...


Driscoll Kingston Solicitors: Of course, there are always the hand-picked testimonials from the firm's own website. If you ever want to know how long someone has been practising law, you can always look them up on The Law Society website. Things you probably don't care about as a consumer looking ...


SBW Lawyers Ltd: In our opinion it's a welcome addition to the legal industry . For example, here is a single sentence from the SBW Law website. Typically people tend to check out only the public reviews of service providers when researching them. But with legal professionals there are ofte...


IWC Estate Planning & Management Ltd: You have to be pretty confident in your customer service to do such a thing when it comes to legal matters. The majority of legal professionals still adhere to the 9-5 Mon-Fri rule rigidly. A 150 year old law firm might assign you a 1-year qualified solicitors to run...


Briffa Intellectual Property Solicitors: She then did 7 years at another international Intellectual Property firm before joining Briffa in 2001. It's as if they knew exactly what we look for in a firm, and did it. Any negatives? I don't like their logo. But the firm's enthusiasm unashamedly spills out of thei...


Helix Law Solicitors: Tell us your problem and lets see if we can help."< div> However the majority of the front page contains clear lists about what they do , who they do it for, and other useful information such as what payment structures are available. I had an urgent matter that I neede...


Leech and Co Solicitors Ltd: Most people prefer a law firm that specialises in a specific area of law and rightly so. We definitely throw a large wad of Kudos their way for bringing it up though. There are so many variants and we didn't even scratch the surface. Why is all that relevant? To mak...


Joanna Connolly Solicitor Advocates: They also deal with setting aside statutory demands over consumer credit agreements where goods and services have been purchased using credit. On top of that, they offer advice and services relating to Will Disputes, Inheritance Act Claims, Personal Insolvency, Employme...


CFG Law: The fact more firms don't include them on their websites boggles the mind. It suddenly occurred to us that we already have a 'poster-firm' on our network for all the things we're trying to promote. He has extensive experience, built up over the past 20 years, of helping cata...


Hodge Jones and Allen Solicitors: However, when clicked it currently forwards you to the official site whilst www.hodgejonesallen.com doesn't even exist. On the subject of their website, we should make a quick note about navigation. On our network we're partnered with many firms that could be considere...


CSL Law Croydon: From a statistical and sociological standpoint - that's a positive thing. The typical review sites such as Yell, 192, Yelp, and Google have only a handful of comments and (at the time of writing) only the latter had a single negative one displayed. This month, we notice...


RSR Law Croydon: When choosing firms for us to recommend potential clients to, there is a check list of items we go through such as location, case types, reputation, setup, and recommendations from peers. Google had only one review and whilst negative, it was one of those negative reviews th...


Johnsons Solicitors Nottingham: For example, a basic search on the firm's name brings up plenty of search engine results and Google displays star ratings next to ones that provide such options. Only as a scared client of course. Typically when we research a firm for one of these articles, there is a ...


Autologistic Solutions Limited: We will always ensure that your rights and needs are upheld and you receive the structure and response at the [sic] most difficult time. Green Flag are currently running a TV ad campaign pointing out that this is not actually true of all recovery providers. But for simplicit...


Philip Nam White Collar Legal: So what else can we compare instead? Whilst flicking through various law sites, you may have noticed some asking you to follow their Twitter feed or 'Like' them on Facebook. What first appealed to us with White Collar Legal is probably the same thing everyone who...


Stephen McCaffery & Catherine Stock: Technically speaking if you remove the 's' from the https: part of the web URl in an old browser you'll see a site displayed, but obviously the 's' indicates a level of 'security' so that removal is at your own risk should you be faced with no other alternatives.. Even i...


Kings Court Trust Probate: In these days of Facebook and LinkedIn, an increasing number of people enjoy and feel more confident being able to know a little about the people or company they're going to call before doing so. Another paragraph that caught our eye, was: class="infoquote "Each of our...


EHL Solicitors UK: 2013 brought a Services Award for their Leicestershire operations. Their case range is just as wide, with help offered in Conveyancing, Right to Buy, Remortgaging, Probate, Contested Probate, Lasting Power of Attorney, Wills, Trusts, Family Law, Matrimonial Law, Divorc...


Davey Law: Flocks of people will run out and get a donkey tattoo simply because their favourite celebrity got one. We're good at listening - and good at finding common sense, practical solutions for you." < font> For family law, they can help with cohabitation, divorce, child supp...


Meresbrook Pollard Ltd: That's partly where 'intuition' comes into play. If you've come to 1to1Legal before to read informational reviews about firms, this one is going to have a couple of firsts. But whilst the two main solicitors of the firm have a combined history of 20 years, and whilst Meresbr...


Balfour and Manson Solicitors: However, when it comes to solicitors - people want the impossible. Whilst a large number of firms will ensure some level of disability help, such as wheelchair access to the offices - this seems to be something more. Obviously we're linking to www.balfour-manson.co.uk and of...


MurrayHay Solicitors: Other firms have minimalist sites. He works with Landlords and Tenants, and can deal with property financing too. Richard Rooney has also come to MurrayHay from his own practice in Wimbledon to help with the property work plus litigation matters. It's probably best just...


Thompsons Solicitors Glasgow: Not just two weeks off with a stiff neck after a car accident. Thompsons' roots are somewhat unique. This ability is certainly more helpful to people with serious life-changing injuries that may be out of work throughout the entire running of the case. You must have n...


Alison Ashworth Solicitors: So you will be paying for your legal advice on this one with nearly every firm out there. but we'll get to that ... Ashworth Motoring Law are a National firm of motoring lawyers specialising in representing drivers over motoring offences. That means that every client o...


Jackson and Canter now Jackson and Lees: However, there doesn't seem to be a testimonial page on the new site. None of that remains but people are still searching our system for the additional name tag. As a large firm you would expect a large case range, and JacksonLees certainly have that. If you're not fami...


Accident Claims Scotland: However, in the footer they say their registered address is Accident Claims Scotland Ltd, Teviot House, 186-192 High Road, Ilford, Essex IG1 1LR. However, before 1to1Legal, we ran quite a different service but still referring people to solicitors. (Price isn't always the bes...


Lambert Pugh Conveyancing Solicitors: She replied to any messages promptly and kept me fully updated throughout the whole process. Both are solicitors, and both similarly state years of experience in sales, purchases, leases, etc. However, don't assume that Will writing is a simple process. All of them returned ...


Newry's McShanes Law Firm: They've striven for a reputation as: a high-quality service with first-class technical ability and commercial acumen. So once you know you're on the right site, it would probably be a good idea to bookmark it.. They have also been awarded the Lexcel Practice Management Stand...


Taylor Rose Solicitors Limited TTKW: The problem is that most people feel their house sale takes too long, most people wish they'd got more more money or paid less, most people feel a little fobbed off by their solicitor (that they've been calling three times a day for two months straight!) ... Inviting them t...


Atkinson Rose (Amit Patel) Employment Solicitors: real world business experience from a number of sectors" < font>, that he color="green "...

Hythe Solicitors Robson & Co, near Folkestone in Southern Kent: Worse still, are those firms where the receptionist asks you personal questions, you answer them, she walks through to the solicitor's office, tries to repeat what you've said, listens to the solicitor, walks back to their desk, then tries to repeat what the solicitor said ....


Brearleys Solicitors Brighouse: they must surely have been reasonably successful to have grown to that point.) Established locally in 1833, their current partners have apparently worked together for many years in West Yorkshire, providing legal services and helping clients throughout the area with bu...


Law in Cornwall Ltd: They also cover the regular range of personal injury compensation claims available. '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 a...


Julia Brown Solicitor @ Family Legal Solicitors: The firm can help in complex financial situations and help track down assets. I never felt alone during a very difficult time." .
