Why choose a solicitor

There are many reasons why you may wish to consider using a solicitor. When it comes to legal representation, it’s reassuring to know that you are in good hands.

We are highly qualified. . .

All solicitors will have studied law at university and will have gained an overview of the English legal system and hold significant legal qualifications including a degree and postgraduate diploma in law.

We are professionally experienced. . .

Solicitors will frequently specialise in the particular area of law about which you are seeking help. They will have gained a great deal of in-depth knowledge and experience in handling cases just like yours.

We are regulated. . .

All solicitors are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and are required to renew their practicing certificate on a yearly basis. They are governed by a lengthy code of conduct and required to act professionally and in your best interests at all time.

We are accountable. . .

If, for any reason, you have cause to complain about the service you receive from your solicitor, there is a robust complaints handling process in place. If your complaint is not satisfactorily handled by the firm in the first instance, it can be referred to the Legal Ombudsman for consideration which can order that your solicitor addresses any complaint fully or that compensation be paid in appropriate circumstances.

We are covered. . .

For your protection and ours, all solicitors are required to maintain a minimum of £2 million professional indemnity insurance.
