Finding Legal Help When Things Go Wrong

Even though we've just said that you don't actually have to pay an accident claim solicitor for services and that no-one would use their insurer's appointed solicitor to sue the insurance company - there is a side to legal assistance cover provided by insurers that might actually be useful. Again, not many people bother to read what's actually included or even check when stuff comes up. But for most policies the included legal assistance will cover non-car related matters as well such as home insurance claims, family law, business disputes and more. There will obviously be limits but make sure to read up and check just in case. They'll be betting on most people not noticing, as I'm sure that if everyone in the UK starting phoning up for free legal help every time they needed it - the insurer/solicitor would go bust pretty quick:

White Collar Legal & Admin Ltd in Wirral, Merseyside: We get dozens of communications a day about joining the 1to1Legal network from various firms handling a range of case types from all parts of the UK and ROI. Of course such rules usually don't work out as you'd expect - (e.g. Enough to have seen plenty of veteran-but-d...


Thorpe Wilson Ltd Solicitors in Rochdale: So context is key.

Serious Law LLP - Serious Injury Law Solicitors in Bolton: The person was ranting about 'capitalist law firms!'.

We manage their affairs to provide them with a future ...


SBW Law Ltd - Solicitors in Liverpool: But there are some statements which may say more than you think. SBW Law doesn't use such potentially misleading language on their website. No firm is ever going to state they are 'cold' or 'unfriendly'. For example, 5x staff members with 2x years of experience = 10 years ...


RSR Law Ltd in Croydon: On this occasion, there is actually a lot clarification of what is meant: class="infoquote "All our initial advice to assess your case is free ... We are against cold calling in any form."< div> We couldn't agree more with the cold-calling thing and have similar...


Robin Somerville Direct Access Barrister & Mediator in Barnet, Greater London: We tried entering all the information it asked for and then different bits and pieces.

Redwood Collections Ltd - Debt Recovery Services based in Croydon: There aren't too many possible variants to worry about and scammers tend to target other legal matters such as property and wills anyway so no concerns to raise here.

RD Costings Ltd - Criminal Injury Claims based in Portishead: class="infoquote "RD Costings ... (Yes, we have experience in this area. There may still be fees if your case wins.

MGBe Legal Immigration Lawyers in London: It's just that whilst people are quite willing to post about how bad or well their house sale went, they are far less likely to jump onto the internet to declare how their divorce, or criminal trial, or mental capacity claim is going. MGBe Legal specialise in the latter...


Pump Court Chambers Direct Access Barristers in London, Swindon & Winchester: There are dozens of types of cases where this is applicable and for most of them it will certainly be more time and cost efficient to use a Direct Access barrister whom you have chosen to work with yourself throughout the case. Again, though, a little thing like this impr...


Penn Chambers Ltd - Solicitors in London: The firm's Blog section is also very client-oriented. class="infoquote "Penn Chambers Solicitors offer comprehensive legal advice and representation at court."< div> Another huge potential benefit of using this firm over some others is this ability to do bo...

NV Legal Ltd Personal Injury Solicitors in Watford: But you never know what's going to happen next so always be aware of where your communications are coming from and that no law firm should ask you to submit bank details via email..

Murray Hay Solicitors for Putney & Wandsworth: 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 to ring and ask as they probably d...


MTA Personal Injury Solicitors LLP in Bromley, Kent - Greater London: So even though injury claim clients don't seem to be being targeted in that way, it's still probably a good idea to bookmark the correct site we link to above . All staff are very helpful and patient." "MTA Personal Injury was outstanding ... Another type of scam...


Meresbrook Pollard Solicitors in Bradford: We found it posted in the About sections of their social media profiles. Of course, that could have been cleared up by the time you read this, but unfortunately the fact that their website is not mobile friendly and uses Flash is something of note considering how prolific th...


McEwan Fraser Legal Property Conveyancing in Edinburgh, Aberdeen & Inverness: You would think these days that even 'stuffy', 'living-in-the-past', 'antiquated' (three words we've seen used numerous times by reviewers on the matter) people like solicitors could get their heads around the idea that even one extra Saturday morning open every second week ...

Lindsays Solicitors Offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow & Dundee: Most law firms are signed up to a national, county, or town law society organisation. Not just the legal industry, but all companies as a whole. To get a wider view that includes negative opinions. class="infoquote "We are proud to sponsor Eilish McColgan, one of the r...


Levins Solicitors in Huyton, Liverpool: The idea is obviously that people will trust the experience of a 150 year established firm versus a 1 year old firm. The branding logo of the firm states Levins Solicitors though and neither www.levinssolicitors.co.uk or the dot com are currently showing any website. We're s...


Leech & Co Solicitors Ltd in Manchester: Apparently there are over 2000+ such locations across the UK so I imagine the majority of solicitors dealing with Wills, Court of Protection and Power of Attorney matters are aware of them. If you are a returning client you may have used the www.leech.co.uk web address in th...


Lawcomm Solicitors Services in Fareham, Whiteley & London: However we don't need to do that for Lawcomm Solicitors because despite being a property handling firm with hundreds of online reviews - they've somehow managed to maintain a really high general rating across the various platforms such as Google, Yell, Trustpilot, e...


Kudos Legal Ltd Solicitors in Glasgow and Preston: There didn't seem to be a website for the London based Kudos Law Ltd. Some sections kept flicking into broken coding when viewing the site on our phones tablets. The only issue when looking such things up is that there doesn't seem to be a clear separation between their Pres...


Kings View Chambers, London with Stephen McCaffrey & Catherine Stock: A barrister has to be qualified to do so, but being able to hire a barrister directly to represent your interests in court can save both time and money for a huge range of cases where a solicitor would usually have to hire someone on your behalf. She did actually work as a...


Kings Court Trust Ltd Probate Services based in Bristol: Therefore it is probably best to bookmark the correct site once you're on it just in case..

When we first started reviewing law firms 20+ years ago, that was standard be...


IWC Estate Planning & Management Ltd - Probate & Will Services in Croydon, Bristol & Braintree: So seeing IWC offer limited extra hours on a Saturday might not look like much compared to your local hairdresser, restaurant, or supermarket - but it is something quite impressive for a firm dealing with legal matters. If you've done your homework a little more than the r...


Ian Mallon Solicitors Ltd in Newry and Dublin: We're sure the firm's extra step of translating the site to cater for that has not gone unappreciated. When checking out review boards though, we always suggest you read comments rather than just look at star ratings. Over the past few years having staff profiles on the com...


R James Hutcheon Solicitors - Law Firm in Liverpool: We think they can be very misleading and they reduce the claims to simply being a money-fixes-everything mentality which we're against.

Howe + Co Solicitors in Brentford, London: The official website we link to above is www.howe.co.uk, with www.howe.com taking you to a design company in the USA.

HJA.net - Hodge Jones & Allen LLP Solicitors in London: There are several possible reasons for this that we noticed. However, when clicked it currently forwards you to the official site whilst www.hodgejonesallen.com doesn't even exist. This popularity seems to come without the usual nay-sayers. This 'big-ness' doesn...


Helix Law Ltd - Solicitors in Brighton & Eastbourne: Why is that of note? Because any effort to provide free information to people is a good indication of a firm's general mindset. Please note, the spelling and typo errors are copy pasted directly: class="infoquote "Helix Law are ha ppy to go the extra mile, provide ac...


HH Law Ltd - Hampson Hughes Solicitors in Liverpool: (Pause to raise an eyebrow.) We didn't see any of such fishy goings-on for Hampson Hughes though. So for security's sake it's probably a good idea to bookmark the correct site once you're on it . As you'll have seen on the Law Society page we linked to above, this fir...


GloverPriest Solicitors Ltd in Birmingham (Great Barr), Stourbridge, Wellingborough & Tamworth: It's as if they believe solicitors need 'humanising'. Direct contact details are always a huge bonus too though. Clients don't want to feel as though they're always talking to reception or junior staff. This may be reserved for house purchases sales only though. These shoul...


Frank Rogers Law Ltd - Motoring Offence Solicitor in Birkenhead: But you never know what fraudsters will think of next. . 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". But basic matters such as "What Happens If You're Caught Speeding?", "W...


Fieldfisher LLP Personal Injury Solicitors in Manchester & London: Not only that, they even have their own Wikipedia page. However, there was a weird selection of negative comments spanning a one month period on one of the independent review sites. It's pretty much a universal given at this point. Even more odd was the comment about them h...


Edward Hands & Lewis Solicitors in Lewisham, Loughborough & Leicester: Not only by phone but in person at any of their offices too. We will return any calls received before 4:30pm on the same day. EHL have done neither. They are not very good for actual useful communication when it comes to legal issues. But the pages about case types, how t...


Education Law Service Ltd - Special Educational Needs Lawyer in London: However there are some areas of law where the number of options simply aren't there. However for Special Needs Education Law absolutely the sooner you're talking to someone with the expertise and experience to guide you - the better.. It was harder to find reviews at ...


Hammond Trotter Solicitors Ltd | Motor Offence Lawyers in Manchester & London: Hammond & Trotter are not exactly cheap, but at least they'll listen to your circumstances for free before quoting you a price for whatever work they think is needed to resolve the matter. Always remember, though, that fighting a motor offence case is hardly ever abou...


Driscoll Kingston Solicitors in Liverpool: "No win, no fee" only means that if you lose there are no fees to pay. Whilst the firm has a 'Our People' section where you can read about staff members (something we encourage every law firm to have) it's not instantly clear from the main pages that Driscoll Kingston...


DFA Law LLP Solicitors in Northampton: In any industry, not just for law. Titles such as "The end of ‘furlough’ – what now?", "Employment Tribunal fees abolished with immediate effect" and "Commercial Property – Changes to the Use Classes Order" are just that extra flourish we think shows mindfulness towards...


Davey Law Solicitors in Cirencester and Gloucester: They have the usual spread of social media profiles for you to interact with too.

CSL Law Ltd Solicitors in Croydon: Usually we only strongly advise people to bookmark a solicitor's site when fraud is a possibility such as scammers preying on property transactions. But even then it was one of those "Eh?" negative reviews where the complainant gave the firm a 1☆ because they don't han...


CFG Law Personal Injury Solicitors in Cheadle, Greater Manchester: However: class="infoquote "We have never undertaken clinical or medical negligence claims. We support the NHS."< div> Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but if I am - I won't be the only one. And obviously we think a lot of the firm otherwise they wouldn't be on our ne...


Briffa Legal Ltd Intellectual Property (IP) Solicitors in London: However, no firm gets to dictate what we write in their review or make changes unless we've made a factual error. 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. It...


Balfour + Manson Solicitors & Property Sales in Aberdeen, Glasgow & Edinburgh: However, www.balfourmanson.co.uk and www.balfourmanson.co.uk are currently owned by different people. The course itself was the subject of much debate and controversy for years, but was handled by a different firm (Dundas & Wilson) who later turned out to have ties with wind...


AWH Legal Ltd - AWH Solicitors in Manchester & Blackburn: So how are AWH being rated across the independent third party review boards? class="infoquote "all procedures were explained with patience and understanding at a sensitive time" "very professional and always responded to my queries and kept me updated" "my so...


Avery & Walters Ltd - Solicitors in Leeds & Harrogate: The Harrogate office has it's own website at www.powell-eddison.co.uk, most of the variants such as www.powelleddison.co.uk don't redirect you so the same bookmarking advice there. If you check the site for England & Wales you can look up the expertise and experience (or at ...


Auto Logistic Solutions Ltd - Vehicle Accident Management: Uninsured Loss Recovery< u> - luckily since the late 90s people are more aware of their rights regarding claims and how they don't have to allow their insurance company to recover compensation for things like injuries and time off work. We could imagine people carryin...


Aspire Licensing & Administrative Services in Whitley Bay, Newcastle: There are certainly more quality, cost-effective, and quicker solutions to legal problems these days.

OTS Solicitors Ltd Immigration & Family Law in London, UK: There are quite a few ways to check the differences between firms though. (Wherever that expression came from.) class="infoquote "OTS Solicitors is a well-known firm of UK immigration, Employment, Family and Litigation Solicitors, and the leading authority for ma...


Asghar & Co Ltd Solicitors in Southall & Slough: The official site we link to above is www.asgharandco.com and just to clarify - you can't have an ampersand in a web address so www.asghar&co.com will never exist. A bold move for sure. Asghar & Co first caught our eye as being a larger firm that still handled Legal Aid cas...


APS Legal & Associates Ltd - Will Advisors and Assured Probate Services: This is both more helpful in pinpointing where the praise is due , but also unhelpful in pointing out the review isn't of the company as a whole. Once you have the name of the law firm you can use the various resource we already recommend such as searching the relevant Law ...


Apprise Legal Services - Wills, Trusts, Probate & Estate Planning in Sutton Coldfield: A quick note on navigation with a triple barrelled company name. Thirty years ago a same sex civil partnership each life-insured with ex-partners and an adopted child would have been inconceivable. We try to locate large firms, small firms, specialists and different typ...


Allsop Durn Solicitors in Ruislip: We've had someone rant about 'capitalist law firms!' on our reviews and seen someone give a 1 star rating to a Divorce specialist for refusing to take on their Personal Injury case.

Aconveyancing Ltd in Tamworth & Shirley (Solihull): On the face of it though, Aconveyancing very much seem to have the experience, client reputation, and goals they claim. If we had to find a niggle with this firm, then that would be it - i.e. You may very well get a forty year qualified solicitor at a 2 year old firm. Remem...


5 Essex Court Chambers & Partners - Barristers in London: You would take your case to a solicitor, they would run it, and they would hire a barrister to represent you. Other typical variants such as www.fiveessexcourt.co.uk or the dot com version are also similarly nothing to do with this particular chambers. Of course, if you...


33 Legal Ltd | Claim Services in Preston & Manchester: Even Medical Negligence and Criminal Injury cases will typically be no win, no fee. And you don't want a law firm with either issue.
