ABS Lawyers Ltd Solicitors in Corby & Maghull, Liverpool: ABS's 85 years though certainly could be a good indication of real, seasoned professionals available within the company . class="infoquote "In respect of Personal Injury & Housing Disrepair, we work on a No Win No Fee basis."< div>. So always make sure you're on the c...


Antony Hodari Solicitors Housing Disrepair Specialists in Manchester: When it comes to legal firms we absolutely recommend reading reviews rather than flicking through star ratings alone. The only common typo we saw in our logs was for www.anthonyhodari.co.uk with an 'h' in the first name. We've been working in the industry for over 20 years...


Argue & Co Legal - Allan Argue Personal Injury Solicitor in Glasgow: class="infoquote "When we can, we operate a no-win-no-fee funding option for our clients."< div> We would expect every solicitor doing injury litigation matters to offer no win no fee arrangements for most case types. The second part of that snippet though...


Aspire Licensing & Administrative Services in Whitley Bay, Newcastle: Aspire Licensing point this out themselves as well stating they have: class="infoquote "... Much more than a firm that only covers a handful of such cases each month as part of their general commercial legal work. Certainly we can't think of one that's more niche off-h...


Beers LLP - Solicitors in Kingsbridge & Plymouth, Devon: Make sure you know what site you're on and never discuss payments via email . . Sadly https: www.lawgazette.co.uk news conveyancing-fraud-gang-jailed-for-diverting-deposit-monies 5103305.article" thousands of people have handed their life savings< a> over to fraudsters ...


Bell Lax Ltd - Solicitors in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham: On the other hand, an individual solicitor who tries to handle a huge range of case types cannot really call themselves a specialist. For all we know the poor rating is for something ridiculous or not even for the correct firm. There were no common themes amongst the few neg...


Bilkus and Boyle Solicitors & Estate Agents in Glasgow: For example, the review we saw criticising a Criminal Law firm for refusing to take on someone's Divorce case. But can you actually find out the expertise and experience of the firm's lawyers independently? class="infoquote "Our highly motivated and skilled team have a...


BLZ Solicitors NIHL, PPI & Immigration Lawyers in Stockport: Not spending hours re-writing their website content. Not their secretary or junior staff who joined the firm yesterday. One tip though is to make sure the free consultation is with a qualified professional. class="infoquote "BLZ Solicitors is a modern law firm that is ...


Branch Austin McCormick LLP Solicitors in Mayfair, London: We've seen very tenuous links before including one firm that claimed their history went back 200+ years because they moved into the building previously occupied by an older firm. We've even seen negative comments from the losing side in a court matter. It's always been said ...


Brown & Co Solicitors in Greenwich, London: class="infoquote "If your solicitor hasn't got time for you, it's unlikely that he or she has time for your opponents, their solicitors or others involved in your transaction or business deal."< div> Typically someone with a legal problem will scroll through se...


QualitySolicitors Burton & Co in Lincoln & Sleaford: Jordans Solicitors became QualitySolicitors Jordans. Unfortunately, in the heat of anger it seems that a considerable number of people who are unhappy with a 'QualitySolicitors' branded firm - simply rush online and write a negative review against the first 'QualitySolicito...


Catteralls Solicitors in Wakefield: But the reason we point out how easy it is to get mixed up is because this firm deal with Property Conveyancing matters https: www.lawgazette.co.uk news police-warn-solicitors-about-phishing-scam 5106839.article" which have been the increasing target of scammers for years...


CEL Solicitors in Liverpool - Housing Disrepair, Knotweed, & Data Breach Claims: The legal industry struggles badly with catching up with the times. For example one claiming CEL lawyers demanded £2500 from him to provide 'detective services'. We've seen someone leave a negative review about a Criminal Law firm for refusing to take on their Divorce....


Cooks Solicitors in Newcastle under Lyme & Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire: When it comes to law firms though, we absolutely recommend that you read through the reviews and ignore any overall average star ratings. Whilst that might mean you'll need slightly more concentration to make sure your researching information about the actual office ra...

Swain & Co Solicitors Ltd in Southampton, Liverpool & Havant: The above are snippets from the firm's own testimonial page. The official site we link to is www.swainandco.com but www.swainandco.co.uk is for a different firm. Our last article was about a firm that used different trading names from the same office address. Young and Co ...


David Stinson & Co Personal Injury Solicitors in Aylesford, Kent: But the solicitor may take a cut of your compensation should you win. class="infoquote "very professional and got my wife not only the money but the outcome she deserved" "My solicitor was always polite and I think she deserves a lot of credit" "Regardless o...


DisrepairClaim.co.uk - Housing Disrepair Claims Company based in Brighouse, West Yorkshire: To sum up, working with a CMC is an aberration for us but we wouldn't do it unless we thought it would help people. There are several good reasons for this, but the main one being that the majority of them simply take your details and sell them on to the highest bidder...


DV Solicitors (Deo Volente Legal LLP) Law Firm in Bedford & Luton: Something you'd like to see in any legal practice you're thinking of using. For example in tax HMRC matters you may save a lot of time and money by using an accountant rather than a law firm if your type of case allows such. Not just in the legal industry either, but...


Dylan Nair Solicitors Ltd in Preston, Lancashire: So when Dylan Nair make a public statement on their site like this, it's not something to be glossed over . It may be a sad side-effect of the Facebook Instagram age we live in but many people do make decisions about whether to use a solicitor or not much easier if there is...


Education Law Service Ltd - Special Educational Needs Lawyer in London: Some are less obliging offering just 15 minutes over the phone to help decide if it's a case they can handle and quote you for doing the work. Some other resources will pop up as well that might be helpful with some of the basics at least, including www.childlawadvice.o...


Fair Result Ltd Divorce Settlement Mediation Services in Leicester: That's where we saw that the firm was pretty new. Enquiring about and researching what avenues are available should be anyone's first point of call before actually starting to weigh up which firm out of those options to use. When we searched for 'fair result', 'fair re...


Frazer Coogans Ltd - Solicitors in Ayr, Prestwick & Glasgow: We've been reviewing law firms for over 20 years now. The largest property firm in the UK just now currently has over 1500+ reviews on Google and a rating of just over two stars. Frazer Coogans Ltd is also registered to

Fulton's Solicitors & Estate Agents in Clarkston & Mount Florida, Glasgow: Why people fall for that, we don't know. Being a Peterhead-based firm ourselves it's a tough thing to see even the basics such as Law Society databases being so much clearer and informative south of the border. The research people do to confirm company statements about...


Hawkridge & Company - Hawk Law Solicitors in Gillingham, Medway: 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'...


Hill House Chambers - Barristers Based in London: For the case types they handle this isn't too much a concern. Does that mean a much better experience overall? Normally we completely ignore testimonials on company websites. If you weren't aware - we are now quite far from the 'old days' of a high street solicitor's ...


HooperHyde Business Law Solicitors in Solihull: As stated above though, for legal services that should not be taken as a negative sign. We currently showcase the regular high-street-style solicitors people have come to expect, as well as some alternative services that act as an in-house legal team of their own. They are n...


Howe + Co Solicitors in Brentford, London: For a start, when we entered Howe & Co Solicitors into a search there were three other firms with similar names that popped up as well. The majority of lawyers and law firms in the UK are registered with a local Law Society either at the national, county, or sometimes town l...


Jacobs Law Solicitors: For all we know, that could mean they know what email is. There are many other overly used marketing terms such as "friendly", "traditional", and everything being of "paramount" importance. That's because "established in 2013" can sound ridiculously new to some considering s...


JPS Walker Solicitors Ltd in Manchester: But there is actually much more to unpack there than you might think: class="infoquote "We are a modern firm of Solicitors"< div> Most firms will state they are 'modern', 'friendly, 'experienced', etc. These can be city, county, or country based. JPS Walker Solici...


Khan Law - Raees Khan Personal Injury Solicitor in Glasgow: That's fair enough. The official site we link to above is www.khanlaw.co.uk with www.khanlaw.com showing information for a completely different firm in the US. Always make sure you're on the correct website and never discuss bank details or payments via email . . They hav...


KRS Estate Planning Ltd - Will & Probate Advice in Leicester: There's obviously a massive range of variants people could attempt such as www.krs.co.uk or www.krsestateplanning.co.uk so we would recommend bookmarking the site just to be sure. So how can you tell 'good low-cost help' from simply 'cheap help'? class="infoquote "I ...


Lefevres Law Firm - Litigation Solicitors in Edinburgh, Glasgow & Aberdeen: well, we think so anyway. It's still very much a specialty though. There is another website at www.lefevre-litigation.co.uk which seems to be an individual site for their Aberdeen office. A quick note on navigation too. That can make them sound a little more formal: ...


Lindsays Solicitors Offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow & Dundee: Most law firms are signed up to a national, county, or town law society organisation. Lindsays are under The Law Society of Scotland, but we're sad to say the Scottish site is far outdone by English Welsh version. However we thought it could be very helpful to take you throu...


Mackenzie Jones Solicitors in St Asaph, Menai Bridge & Chester: Please remember to forgive law-related websites that use a lot of the same language or that make claims that practically every other law firm is making as well. class="infoquote "Our legal service team have extensive experience"< div> One thing to be aware...


Mason Bullock CCJ & Employment Solicitors in Coventry: The main difference of the UK compensation process vs the US is that being injured in the UK is not a lottery-win. However with Mason Bullock Solicitors we were actually very eager to get them on to the network from the start. But www.mason&bullock.co.uk can't exist b...


Mckie Legal Solicitors in Penrith & St Helens (ConnectMeToaLawyer Ltd): We've covered many firms that proudly start off their website's sales pitch with 'as a large city firm ...' or something similar. There are plenty of things you might not have thought of though that can identify a firm as offering more than another. We have seen losing ...


Michael Leighton Jones Solicitors in Bargoed & Tredomen, Wales: It's a good idea to read comments when it comes to legal service providers as well rather than just checking star ratings. 'living in the past', 'unfriendly', and 'inefficient'). That's a bigger deal than you might think. When you are flicking through law firm reviews ...


Milners Law LLP Solicitors in Leeds, Harrogate & Pontefract: Therefore it's very important for good firms to make sure they have such staff profiles. People are very quick to jump online and praise complain about a restaurant they've just been to. We always recommend reading actual comments rather than flicking through ratings any...


My Law Matters from Fentimans - Solicitors in Wolverhampton, Manchester, Solihull & Waltham Cross: We've been writing law articles for over twenty years now and have therefore worked alongside hundreds of law firms in that time. It's quite common for law firms to create separate trading names. A mix of genders, ages, and years of experience amongst staff can only be...


OneLaw Chambers - Solicitors, Barristers & Advocates in London: Right now the largest scam by far plaguing the legal industry is house deposit fraud. For example, the creation of 'no win, no fee' arrangements for litigation matters such as personal injury, medical negligence, housing disrepair, and so on. When a company posts ...


OTS Solicitors Ltd Immigration & Family Law in London, UK: There are many areas of law where people automatically seem to be drawn to specialist firms such as for Criminal Defence, Divorce, Motor Offences and Immigration. OTS Solicitors are signed to The Law Society of England & Wales which is an excellent resource . All followin...


Pacific Law Estate Planning Solicitors in Manchester: Being able to communicate through Whatsapp or other text services has been seen.

Penerley Commercial Lawyers in Islington, London: More recently though the number of people starting up their own small business or being self-employed has risen dramatically.

Pump Court Chambers Direct Access Barristers in London, Swindon & Winchester: class="infoquote "Recent changes in the law mean that members of the public, commercial organisations and non-commercial organisations can now instruct a barrister directly without the need to go through a solicitor or intermediary."< div>. They want clients 2 miles, 2...


Reid Black Solicitors Ltd in Belfast, Antrim & Ballyclare: We only started reviewing and writing about law firms in Northern Ireland about half a dozen years ago. Most solicitors will register with a Law Society even though it is not mandatory. This is very different from the SRA (Solicitors Regulation Authority) and we're putting t...


Richmond Legal Ltd Solicitors in Middleton, Manchester: 'Jack of all trades, master of none' springs to mind. So when you see a law firm with only a handful or even zero reviews, just bear that in mind and don't take it as a negative sign . Therefore whilst the case range across this particular firm isn't wholly niche - it is st...


Reynolds Macdonald Solicitors in Hackney: A quick note on navigation as the firm branding is mainly 'Reynolds Macdonald Solicitors' but the web address and logo follows the 'RM Solicitors' style. The main issue with similar domains not being owned or extra side websites only really becomes an issue in cas...


The Search Bureau from Premier Searches Ltd - UK Conveyancing Search Provider: It probably doesn't occur to employees of a firm to jump on the web to write a review about a service their company uses. Also most of the fraud involved in conveyancing transactions tend to focus on actual buyer seller clients of the actual law firms. Whilst most general co...


Simper Law Ltd - Solicitors in Norwich & Great Yarmouth: But it goes without saying that you can end up with a 1-year-qualified, completely inexperienced solicitor from a 200-year-old law firm just the same as you could get a 40-year-guru lawyer from a 1-year-old firm. Especially the review we saw where a person looking to divorce...

ULA Solicitors Ltd - Law Firm in London: We specialise in a wide range of services including Crime, Immigration, Personal Injury and Family."< div> It's something we've covered before, but the fact a firm states it handles a wider range of cases does not mean it cannot also still claim to be a 'specialist' fir...


Youngs Solicitors - Young & Co Solicitors Ltd in Longton (Stoke on Trent): Practically every law firm that handles property matters has negative reviews about their handling of it.
