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:

Pump Court Chambers Barristers: Again, https: www.pumpcourtchambers.com legal-service direct-access " Direct Access< a> is not applicable or beneficial for absolutely every case type. The fact Pump Court Chambers state a target demographic of their local area is a good sign (to us at least) that t...


Mason Bullock Solicitors: Mason Bullock have also tried to raise awareness of the terrible injustice of CCJs in recent years ever since an online claims process has allowed debt firms to channel cases through a Northampton 'court' that will give them legal powers without ever having heard from...


Lindsays Solicitors Scotland: class="infoquote "They always kept me informed and showed a very professional, yet extremely caring manner" "made a stressful time a lot easier" "Lindsays were able to identify the correct people to sue from a difficult and jumbled set of circumstances"< div>...


Aspire Licensing & Administrative Services: They are therefore not registered with the Law Society of England & Wales or the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). Certainly we can't think of one that's more niche off-hand, but we've been doing this for over twenty years now. In fact, an experienced accountant could ...


OTS Immigration Solicitors: OTS Solicitors are signed to The Law Society of England & Wales which is an excellent resource . Words such as 'leading', 'modern', 'expertise', and especially 'award-winning' are used so frequently as to probably have little impact on potential clients surfing for help. ...

Reid and Black Solicitors: they've posted general reviews elsewhere as well) - it provides a good dollop of veracity to the whole thing. Quite often this is not reflected in the public reviews of those firms. class="infoquote "We will happily discuss any legal issue with you with a free, no obli...


Howe and Co Solicitors: class="infoquote "We act on our client's instructions, always putting our clients first and ensure that their needs are met"< div> Again something very easy to check up on, however care should always be taken when browsing through comments left by people online. ...


Robin Somerville Barrister: Whilst there may be some common typos regarding the last name, the few we tried still brought up the correct website in search results. If you are thinking of using the Direct Access route, then make sure you enter that term as part of your phrase on search engines to ...


Levins Solicitors: So how do Levins Solicitors stack up on such boards? class="infoquote "professionalism and experience were of great comfort" "Without them by my side ... The following is therefore some of the things we like about the company, some quotes from the firm and i...


Aconveyancing Ltd: You may very well get a one year qualified solicitor taking your case at a 200 year old firm. Having just an "a" in front of "conveyancing" did cause some minor issues when trying to research the firm. None of that seemed to apply to Aconveyancing's reviews. But if any...


The Injury Solicitor Salford: No win, no fee and 100% compensation are two very different promises. It's probably a good idea to bookmark the correct site if you might be coming back to it. So whilst some firms promise no win, no fee they may take a cut of your compensation at the end of a c...


RD Costings Ltd: At the moment the bulk of fraud is aimed at property law firms. There is a big difference between a firm that says "no win, no fee" and "100% compensation guaranteed" . This may sound like a reasonable fee at first. For some areas you may want a large firm with lots of re...


MGBe Legal Ltd: It's not hard to imagine in the circumstances where, rather than seeking out the heavy resources of a huge general practice firm, people want someone who deals with these matters day and day out. So are MGBe Legal any good? Well as we've added them to our referral netwo...

McEwan Fraser Legal Scotland: Two other property firms we recommend on our site and who we think do a great job have only 2-3 star ratings. The official site is www.mcewanfraserlegal.co.uk and currently www.mcewanfraserlegal.com does not redirect you there. A quick word on navigation. Therefore fir...


Fieldfisher Solicitors LLP: It's pretty much a universal given at this point. class="infoquote "We are one of the UK's leading personal injury, medical negligence and asbestos compensation claims solicitors."< div> This statement amongst others we'll point out below is why we decided Fieldfi...


Assured Probate Services: As far as we're aware their aren't a lot of scams going where people try to get you to write a will leaving everything to a nigerian prince. Either they are unbelievably niche in their target market, have achieved impressive growth during hard times, or have managed to get h...


Linkilaw Solicitors Ltd in London: Linkilaw Solicitors Ltd are registered with The Law Society of England & Wales which is actually the best site we've seen out of such organisations. Just hang up and ring back on the phone number the solicitor originally gave you. Chances are most review sites will do the ...


NV Legal Solicitors: There are quite a few independent forums such as Google, Trustpilot, Yelp, Yell.com and so on which can often provide far more insight into how a firm treats it's clients than the testimonials each might strategically place on their own website. So how can you check the rea...


SR Law Solicitors London: At 1to1Legal we're very picky about the firms we review, bring on to our network, and then recommend to people. the story is the same as you can see from the few snippets above. Whilst many firms will use the Blog News Article section to just write extra sales pitches thinly...


DFA Law Solicitors: It's clearly working for them too because https: suite.endole.co.uk insight company OC334104-dfa-law-llp" the public records< a> for the firm show a thriving business at the time of writing. There are a few little touches around their site too that indicate a firm w...


Ian Mallon Solicitors Ltd: Maybe you'll have more luck. There could be some common spelling errors such as 'Malon' or people looking up other variations such as ianmallonsolicitors.com - but it's always a good idea to bookmark any site you plan on coming back to anyway. Over the past 20+ years of work...


Asghar & Co Solicitors: We also recommend that if someone calls you to discuss money, you politely hang up and call back the official phone number you were given. Asghar & Co Solicitors are signed up with The Law Society of England & Wales which is one of the better ones. The majority of comment...


Thorpe Wilson Ltd: But it's not the right name. But as there are always plenty of forums for clients to express their opinions, we try to help by offering extra information, links and perspective on each law firm. On the Law Society website and the firm's own footer notes you'll see that the...


Allsop Durn Dearlove: class="infoquote "We try to listen and achieve everything we reasonably can for you. Other tld variants or hyphenated (e.g. However we will explain why to see if you agree. Anything about bank details or payments would never be discussed in an email anyway by a reputa...


MTA Solicitors LLP: We added one firm because of their exceptional opening hours including up to 8pm for weekday appointments in the evenings and alternate Sat Sun openings too. Another type of scam going round right now is https: www.theguardian.com money 2020 jul 18 homebuyer-loses-30...


Apprise Legal Services: You'll also find that most specialists in this area of law are more likely to visit you at home for appointments and be able to advise you on related matters such as insurance, tax schemes, and even funeral plans . or any other such considerations where you actually mi...


Aina Khan Solicitors: For example - out of a hundred typical law firm websites at least twenty of them will say they are 'one of the leading law firms in the UK'. That could mean two solicitors with 10 years experience each. Sadly there weren't many independent reviews across the usual ...


Will Taborn Ltd: A discussion on a recent survey of over 130 in-house lawyers about their legal spend projections under the Coronavirus pandemic. class="infoquote "We assemble the most efficient legal team for your specific needs; by combining the most suitable people for the matter at...


Hutcheon Law Solicitors: There are dozens of third party places to scour some reviews from such as Google, Yelp, Trustpilot, Yell.com and so on. We didn't notice any glaring signs of fraudulent reviews either - i.e. We would only recommend using ones that allow reviewers to leave comments though. ...


Penn Chambers Ltd: The fact Penn Chambers offer this is therefore a good sign of their interest in ensuring clients' peace of mind, feeling of involvement, and keeping good communcation channels open. Thankfully the majority of lawyers in the UK are signed up with their local Law Society. ...


Frank Rogers Motoring Solicitor: This is sometimes blatant marketing jargon and simply means they added up the experience of everyone in the practice. class="infoquote "Notices of Intended Prosecution can be defective and if you do not understand how to deal with them, you can end up with points on y...


OJ Solicitors Glasgow: It is a balancing act though. In any given area we may only recommend 3-4 local law firms for your case type. However, they will usually get you more compensation to begin with. Whilst there are hundreds of law firms proudly stating 'established in 1881' - it is impossible f...


Kudos Legal Solicitors: So why did we invite Kudos Legal on board? As mentioned already, we think it's a big plus to have offices and qualified solicitors on both sides of the border with their location in Preston and one in Glasgow. If you visit https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk organis...


Serious Injury Law Solicitors: John Sherrington qualified in 1985, Timothy Walters in 1997, Jerard Knott in 2002, and right up to Rebecca Hilton in 2017. The person was ranting about 'capitalist law firms!'. The official website we link to above is www.seriousinjurylaw.co.uk with the www.seriouslaw.co.u...


5 Essex Court Chambers & Partners: However under the new Direct Access scheme members of the public are able to hire a barrister directly. However this actually makes it much harder to find client reviews of the firm. You won't find any of the typical staff profiles here which is a welcome relief . But many ...


Avery & Walters Ltd: Another thing to watch for is how you appraise public reviews. Avery Walters on the other hand was a firm we identified as one we'd like to have on the network and actually went out of our way to contact them about getting involved. Obviously there are going to be com...


AWH Legal Ltd: If you click on each person's name you can also see their qualification date and specialist areas. Or you could end up speaking to a junior in-experienced staff member for the 'free' 30-60 consultation on offer. With so many other variants and names in the mix (e.g. Th...


HH Law Ltd: So for security's sake it's probably a good idea to bookmark the correct site once you're on it . Not by a larger cheque. However there is a host of possible misspellings using 'Hamson' or 'Hughs' by accident. You can look up the expertise and years of experience of any so...


Lawcommercial Trading Ltd: Lawcomm should also get a couple of thumbs up for having a proper Blog section. When searching for reviews and information about this firm yourselves elsewhere, please note that Lawcommercial Trading Limited is the full company name. Their official website that we've ...


Redwood Collections Ltd: Great communication between us and our clients ..." "Account manager kept me in the loop at all times and was very accommodating with the specific approach we wanted to take. One of the benefits of using a debt collection company such as Redwood over, say, a firm of sol...


AJLO Solicitors: If you head to third party review forums though, don't just look at average star ratings . But here's an example of one negative review: class="infoquote "This firm handled the conveyancing for the buyer of my flat in Central London. Thank you" "They were patient...


GloverPriest Solicitors Ltd: Whilst the individual names Glover and Priest may sound common enough, there is still room for errors. There were several negative reviews but every one we looked at related to property sales. Direct contact details are always a huge bonus too though. That's because so man...


Jarmans Solicitors Sittingbourne: A 1 year old law firm might have a 30 year veteran on their team. For Jarmans Solicitors Ltd there are 8 solicitors listed with qualification dates ranging from 1978 to 2005. Unfortunately most solicitors are fond of vague and adjective-filled praise devoid of any useful inf...


My 33 Legal Limited: Or, basic narcissism. Both statements are true. So the fact 33Legal don't just handle these but actively push to get such cases - says something about their mindset vs the majority of claims handlers out there. Just a few years ago there was a horrible trend of firms promi...


Hammond Trotter Solicitors Ltd: There are 5 stars for one location but only 3 stars for the other. Not winning a trial in court. The more you know the easier it will be to understand your options and choose the right person to help you. Losing a license can often mean losing a job, let alone the school run...


Driscoll Kingston Solicitors: We don't demand perfection from any firm but we do our regular checks such as SRA verification, flicking through the Legal Ombudsman reports, ensuring they offer free consultations where expected, reading through any available consumer reviews, and so on. Of course, th...


SBW Lawyers Ltd: Even subtle differences such as a firm saying 'we have forty years experience' versus one that says 'we have forty years experience within the firm' - can actually show a large gap in suitability between two legal practices. At this office the range of experience goes from...


IWC Estate Planning & Management Ltd: It's certainly very common for law firms to create different brands for promoting different case types or locations. The reviews back this up: class="infoquote • "Fantastic help, friendly kind I am so happy with the help provided in this difficult time for me" ...


Briffa Intellectual Property Solicitors: Roughly it's about half and half right now. Why am I bringing this up? Because I'm about to write a very glowing review of this particular firm and I don't want people to think for one second that it's because I've been paid to do so or that my pro-stance is typical...


Helix Law Solicitors: If you're concerned that a firm's reviews sound too good to be true - one of the simplest ways to spot fake reviews 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 under their...


Leech and Co Solicitors Ltd: I'm positive that if you check up on some firms boasting decades of history, you'll find the solicitors currently employed there have far less experience than that. Our hope is that you join us on this journey."< div>
