Finding Legal Help When Things Go Wrong

Hopefully you'll have seen the dozens of articles on our site telling you to be wary of the Legal Assistance addons many insurers stick on your policy as already having opted into rather than asking you if you want to opt in like the pretty much do for everything else such as breakdown cover or a courtesy car. It may sound like a good idea at the time when you see costs of a couple dozen pounds in order to secure the services of a solicitor if you need one. Considering solicitors cost hundreds of pounds per hour this sounds like a great deal. However remember that insurers are already making much of a loss on car insurance policies and are not really going to give away more stuff if they can help it. For most car insurance related matters, solicitors work for free. In other words, all that no win no fee and 100% compensation stuff you see on the adverts. In other words, you're paying the insurer for a service that is free and the majority of people don't bother to use their insurance appointed solicitor when something goes wrong anyway because it feels like a conflict of interests:

Thorpe Wilson Ltd Solicitors in Rochdale: So yes, despite the long case list Thorpe Wilson can still be 'specialists' in those areas . However a poll we ran a couple of years ago indicated that most people don't trust company's own testimonials anyway. Sadly in the legal professional you may have noticed that nearl...


The Johnson Partnership Solicitors in Nottingham, Sheffield, Doncaster & Derby: Not even half the results reviews in the search results we saw were actually about The Johnson Partnership criminal defence firm based out of Nottingham. This time we spent hours flicking through stuff as usual, but everyone working on this research came to the same conclusi...


Taborns Legal Business - Will Taborn Ltd in London: For example if you were seeking help with a tax matter, we may show you options of a regular high street solicitor, a direct access barrister, and a regular accountants office. That typically means a much smaller number of organisations to verify everything with and or zero ...


Serious Law LLP - Serious Injury Law Solicitors in Bolton: The one prior was about a firm that seemed to have avoided the lime-light of news articles and review sites like ours yet had dozens of client reviews across all the major rating forums. class="infoquote "These include your financial needs, mobility and rehabilitation...


SBW Law Ltd Personal Injury Lawyers in St Helens: The hyphenated versions for both variants don't currently exist. The difference is whether it includes speaking to an actual solicitor rather than a claims handler. clear and efficient service - would recommend"< div> class="infoquote "I would highly recommend using sbw...


RSR Law Ltd in Croydon: The use of acronyms isn't limited to the firm's own name though. Or as we normally do - state conclusions that could be drawn and why they probably shouldn't be. If we believe there is a strong possibility of success we will offer No Win No Fee ... Whilst their desire to wri...


Redwood Collections Ltd - Debt Recovery Services based in Croydon: I say oddly because quite often it is the debtors that leave reviews on a debt collection firm and they are obviously bias in the opposite directly. Why it's taken so long for such firms to create apps and online admin areas to keep clients apprised of what's going on is any...


Penn Chambers Ltd - Solicitors in London: Thankfully the majority of lawyers in the UK are signed up with their local Law Society. Meaning customer engagement and feedback monitoring are clearly a priority . Many solicitors will charge a fixed fee for an initial consultation. neither www.pennsolicitors.co.uk or w...


Alexander JLO Solicitors - AJLO in London: This type of complaint should absolutely be ignored and should really be deleted.

Linkilaw Ltd Business Legal Advice Services in London: Typically fake reviews are easy to spot because they are done on a whim or in desperation by the business owner. www.linkilaw.com is the official site and www.linkilaw.co.uk doesn't work at the moment. If you've read some of our other review articles, you may have seen us sa...


Leech & Co Solicitors Ltd in Manchester: Therefore a legal practice with a mere 25+ years behind it might sound in its infancy. You could get a 1-year experienced solicitor from a 30-year-old firm and a 30-year experience solicitor from a 1-year-old firm. Wills services don't exactly need to be the 24 7 emergency h...


Lawcomm Solicitors Services in Fareham, Whiteley & London: Their official website that we've linked to above is www.lawcomm.co.uk and it's an https secure site.

Jarmans Solicitors Ltd in Sittingbourne, Kent & Chancery Lane, London: Jay Sahota, a senior partner, worked in a City law firm before moving to Jarmans Solicitors handling litigation matters up to 3.5billion.

IWC Estate Planning & Management Ltd | Probate & Will Services in Braintree: to try and balance the negative reviews people were posting about them. You have to be pretty confident in your customer service to do such a thing when it comes to legal matters.

Ian Mallon Solicitors Ltd in Newry and Dublin: The goal of 1to1Legal is not to create a massive directory of law firms with as many crammed in as possible.

R James Hutcheon Solicitors - Law Firm in Liverpool: reviews that have clearly been posted by the company themselves.

HJA.net - Hodge Jones & Allen LLP Solicitors in London: Staff have apparently run, walked, climbed, cycled, and baked to raise money for organisations such as Headway, Child Brain Injury Trust, Spinal Injuries Association, Narcolepsy UK and more. The official address is www.hja.net as detailed above. (No, seriously.) We didn't se...


Helix Law Solicitors in Eastbourne: Who we help: Small Businesses, Property Investors, Landlords ....

HH Law Ltd - Hampson Hughes Solicitors in Liverpool: We don't like them for various reasons such as often being misleading and helping reduce claims to simply being about money.

GloverPriest Solicitors Ltd in Birmingham (Great Barr), Stourbridge, Wellingborough & Tamworth: Paying for a solicitor that is always too busy to talk to you is naturally infuriating. Certainly, if there is a recurring theme of incompetence in the reviews then that's something to take note of. Direct contact details are always a huge bonus too though. GloverPriests c...


Frank Rogers Law Ltd - Motoring Offence Solicitor in Birkenhead: You can usually look up the qualification dates and expertise of most solicitors on The Law Socienty's website. However if, for example, the firm has only three solicitors and covers three distinct case areas - then it is very likely that each is a specialist. cla...

OJ Solicitors Ltd English & Romanian Solicitors in Glasgow: Unfortunately, in our opinion The Law Society of Scotland website is nowhere near as good as it's English Welsh counterpart when it comes to helping people with their search for legal help. Plus having the actual solicitor able to converse with you in your native lan...


Hammond Trotter Solicitors Ltd | Motor Offence Lawyers in Manchester & London: However this option is usually only made available if you respond quickly. The number of possible offences is always growing. The ones above are taken from the independent review sites. It's the same as shampoos which say '90% of users would recommend us!' only to have...


Driscoll Kingston Solicitors in Liverpool: In fact added together the firm has almost 100 years of combined experienced between the current solicitors.

But what about the client reviews we mentioned at the start? Certainly the firm has glowing testimonia...


CSL Law Ltd Solicitors in Croydon: But even then it was one of those "Eh?" negative reviews where the complainant gave the firm a 1☆ because they don't handle her case type. It's universally understood that people are more inclined to scour the web for places to leave a review if they've received bad se...


CFG Law Personal Injury Solicitors in Cheadle, Greater Manchester: We love case studies and a recent poll showed that the public love them too. Typically, unless we see specific terms popping up in our website's internal search function (e.g. Whilst taking out what is essentially a 'loan' at the start of your case might sound daunting, it i...


Briffa Legal Ltd Intellectual Property (IP) Solicitors in London: Whatever you do, don't go to www.briffalaw.com (just don't) and the most common misspelling www.brifa.com and .co.uk are not currently owned by anyone either. Roughly it's about half and half right now. I won't go through the full list of possible variants. I skimmed through...


AWH Legal Ltd - AWH Solicitors in Manchester & Blackburn: There's a good mix of experience and fresh blood amongst this firm's staff though. But we've been working with law firms for over 20 years now and can confidently say that any official Lexcel, Law Society or Legal 500 stamp of approval is a good sign . We hope it's ...


Avery & Walters Ltd - Solicitors in Leeds & Harrogate: Which sounds far more impressive than 'we've been doing this for two years!' , doesn't it? In such cases, it's not always clear whether the numbers being stated are about how long the firm has been running, or the combined experience years all added together for the ...


Auto Logistic Solutions Ltd - Vehicle Accident Management: No press releases. But it's quite an expense to suddenly land in your lap. We still have no intention of ever selling your details on to claims firms to be sold on and resold on. Again (and it's terrible that we're having to point this out but) many insurers put a surcharge...


Asghar & Co Ltd Solicitors in Southall & Slough: Currently though, www.asgharandco.co.uk is not showing any information either and with some people seeming to try variants using just the 'asghar' or adding 'solicitors' (e.g. For example many legal professionals are signed up with a local Law Society. www.asgharsolicitors.c...

MTA Personal Injury Solicitors LLP in Bromley, Kent - Greater London: For some reason, the MTA Solicitor's website does not boast it's No Win, No Fee offer as much as most other Personal Injury firms.

Aina Khan Law Ltd - Family Law Solicitors in Broxbourne, London: So maybe not a lot of people feel the urge to go online and share their feelings.

5 Essex Court Chambers & Partners - Barristers in London: This may be partly because you really do deal one-on-one with the barrister rather than with the firm as a whole.
