What Firms do we Recommend?

We've written dozens of full-length, in-depth, and un-bias review articles on various UK law firms covering a wide range of case types and locations. They are all hosted on our main website where you will also find a solicitor search function to find someone local to help.

Youngs Solicitors: class="infoquote "Public Funding or 'Legal aid' is available for Care Proceedings and Domestic Violence Domestic Abuse injunctions (where financially eligible)."< div> This is actually a much more impressive statement than you might think. Why is that so imp...


ULA Solicitors Ltd: But the fact they still work with Legal Aid at all these days is something very unique. It has not kept up with the rise in regular inflation fees at all. class="infoquote "The team members are experts in their analytical approach to cases, probing the evidence, and ...


Trust Inheritance Ltd: class="infoquote "As market leaders, we are passionate about the customer service and support we provide."< div> That snippet from the Trust Inheritance website may sound like most other law firms. But even with the potential search issues and other opportunities ...


Trojan Solicitors Ltd: they won 'best company logo 1999'. Whilst I don't think the public are naive enough to think there are 200 year old solicitors working within these law offices - it can push forward the idea that such a firm has more experience than a newer firm. Thanks to the creation of th...


The Legal Practice Ltd: Reading negative reviews may not always put someone off using a firm unless there is a clear theme. But 'the law practice' or 'the lawyer practice' (if you've not remembered quite correctly) bring up different firms and lots of adverts. So again, the fact TLP have such a hig...


The Injury Solicitor Ltd: No win, no fee just means that if you lose there will be no fees. Such as: class="infoquote "We use the latest technology to ensure that you are able to track the progress of your claim 24 hours a day, 7 days a week." < div> As well as details of their charitable...


Taylor Price Solicitors: These should ideally - according to us - have a photo, brief work history, a list of specialties, and direct contact information. Nine times out of ten this will be a gambit to make people think there is a huge amount of experience at the firm, when in reality you could easi...


Swain & Co Solicitors Ltd: class="infoquote "We have specialist lawyers, many of whom are recognised as leaders in their respective fields and also share our unique focus on quality service and putting our clients first."< div> Practically every law firm makes a claim about have the best, ...


Stenfield Solicitors: That wasn't just the legal industry either. The majority preferred to read comments on third party forums such as Google Reviews, Yell, Trustpilot or Yelp. Never discuss payments or bank details via email and remember that even the most official looking email addresses can...


Springle & Co Solicitors: Two, in legal matters people usually don't get everything they want, so many reviews are negative even if the solicitor did everything correctly. For me, it was the 'Trust' loophole. This should not be taken as a bad sign though, for at least three reasons. There is a firm c...


Simper Law Ltd: Last year we ran a poll asking people whether they paid attention to testimonials on company websites and only 8% of you said you did. There is also a firm called Simpler Law based in Lincoln which handles Estate Planning matters too. For some reason, thousands of people hav...


The Search Bureau: The lack of easily available reviews shouldn't be viewed negatively in these cases. However, as already mentioned at the outset of this piece, there often isn't as much to go on when it comes to service providers to the law firms we often write about. Whilst the majori...


Robin Somerville Direct Access Barrister: Robin Somerville is definitely already qualified and he will be the person dealing with your matter from start to finish. For example, an accountant to help with tax matters. Certainly it's a very likely part of the reason he's so well regarded. Links to pages on official ...


Reynolds Macdonald Solicitors: This is quite common for more difficult matters such as medical negligence. The usual amount is 25% of the settlement. But keep in mind that a good lawyer that gets you £5000 compensation and takes 25% of it is better than a less experienced lawyer who only gets you £2000 an...


Richmond Legal Ltd: It also states fluency in Urdu and Punjabi as well as English. The firm's website is https secure for entering your personal details in their contact forms. So for Richmond Legal to cover both these quite specialist areas together - is actually quite unusual. So whils...


Reid Black Solicitors: Whilst not actually based in England Wales, Reid Black will inevitably deal with a lot of other law firms, insurers and businesses in that area. Obviously there could be mis-spellings of the Reid part with the whole 'i' before 'e' thing many of us still have stuck in ou...


RD Costings: (Both genuine things we've seen.) Again, it's a small thing but indicates the type of business they run and people they are. (Yes, we have experience in this area. There may still be fees if your case wins. Criminal injury claims obviously require considerable tact ...


Pump Court Chambers: That should make communication far easier , clearer, and provide a more personalised experience throughout the case. But be aware that if you search for 'pump court barristers' or other related terms you may see www.onepumpcourt.co.uk, www.4pumpcourt.com, www.5pumpcourt.com...


Penerley Lawyers: Whilst people are very happy to talk about their local hairdresser online - they are not so eager to discuss their divorce, bankruptcy or probate litigation. This is because some people's complaints can be ridiculously petty, and some can be attached to the totally wrong f...


Pacific Law: As we said, this is a new firm. We've also seen dozens of negative reviews followed by comments from the firm stating 'this person has never been a client of ours'. But the major mobile players we checked all direct 0800 for free now. class="infoquote "Pacific Law was...


OTS Solicitors Ltd: OTS Solicitors are signed to The Law Society of England & Wales which is an excellent resource . Not so with OTS, who have a wide range of experienced staff such as Basil Gulbenkian (qualified in 1965), Veejay Sharma (2005), Oshin Shahiean (2013) right up to the almost br...


OneLaw Chambers: For example, this morning the other law firm we wrote an article on had a 5 star rating for their 'excellent desserts'. Despite the two words being generic terms (i.e. £millions have been lost. All of the common variants you'd expect such as www.onelawsolicitors.com .co.uk...


My Law Matters: class="infoquote "Our head office was established in 1986"< div> Compared to the huge number of legal offices claiming 'established in 1881' or even older dates, this claim of '1986' seems almost new. Because quite often a low star rating is not due to ratings fr...


Milners Solicitors: The branding is 'Milners' but you will see most title-ing being 'Milners Solicitors' and the website address is based on Milners Law. class="infoquote "At Milners solicitors we offer a free initial consultation where you can speak to a member of our specialist team."< ...


Michael Leighton Jones: Plus, how old the building or the brand name is has no bearing on the years of experience your solicitor may have . However it would still be fair to call this firm a group of 'specialists' as well. This is very different to a firm that offers a wide range of case types h...


MGBe Legal: So it may be an idea to bookmark the site . 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. This includes Skilled Workers, Glo...


Mckie Legal: The main address is in Penrith but they've recently opened a local office in St Helens according to a recent Legal Futures article. We couldn't find any public reviews on McKie Legal at the time of writing this. class="infoquote "Mckie Legal is a Trading Name of C...


McEwan Fraser Legal: Also be aware that it's very easy to spoof the 'Sender:' in an email. As the firm deals with property matters, this raises the possibility of scams which are on the rise despite the https: www.telegraph.co.uk money consumer-affairs property-sellers-warned-not-to-email...


Mason Bullock Solicitors: Typically we research a firm completely unbias and make the decision based on several factors such as their setup, case range, reviews, standing with the relevant regulatory bodies, and so on. The reason we were so keen though, was simply from one opening line on their web...


Lindsays Solicitors: class="infoquote "We are proud to sponsor Eilish McColgan, one of the rising female track stars of Scottish and UK athletics"< div> Firms will often do charity events raising a few hundred pounds for something then get several news articles about it put out. Their...


Levins Solicitors: Not least to help them feel the firm more approachable. Currently www.levinslaw.com is owned by someone else. To quote the LBC site: class="infoquote "... However listing the experience, qualifications, and specialties of each staff member we think is useful to poten...


Lefevres Law: The number of years' experience your actual solicitor has and whether they've spent that time working on a wide range of cases similar to yours is the only timeframe that ultimately matters . That way when you search our database for help in your area we can show you everyt...

David Stinson & Co: On the David Stinson & Co website there is https: www.davidstinson.co.uk testimonials" a page marked 'Testimonials'< a> but there aren't any actual reviews on the page. But the solicitor may take a cut of your compensation should you win. However for smaller more si...


KRS Estate Planning Ltd: In some cases these companies do as little as taking the will you've written yourself and simply keeping a record of it. As the firm we're talking about here deals exclusively in Estate Planning matters , this isn't as much of a concern. The Direct Access scheme allows memb...


Khan Law: prides himself on being thorough and ensuring that his clients receive the compensation they are entitled to."< div> A quick note on navigation as we have two other firms on our network with 'khan' in the name and we did have some trouble ensuring we got the correct rev...


JPS Walker Solicitors Ltd: That means each will only be covered very briefly, but hopefully it will provide a greater selection of things that might help when trying to decide between the various law firms available for your case. This competition has really benefited clients in ensuring firms reall...


Jacobs Law Solicitors: If you flick through the data for Jacob's, you'll see they have solicitors from almost every decade over the last four of them. A good mix of seasoned and fresh, experienced and enthusiastic - and that can't possibly be a bad thing. You'd think that would be a unive...


Howe + Co Solicitors: One of the few areas of law Howe & Co don't actually handle though is Conveyancing, which is the most common legal area facing fraudsters at the moment. class="infoquote "Howe + Co Solicitors are a leading London law firm specialising in complex litigation both in the ...


HooperHyde: As stated above though, for legal services that should not be taken as a negative sign. It's very common. class="infoquote "worked tirelessly for me to win my case and I am extremely grateful" "really understands business risks" "has represented us in many ca...


Hawkridge & Company: Hawkridge & Co on the other hand have big clear logos at the bottom of their page showing Lexcel Accreditation, the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners, Accredited by Solicitors for the Elderly, and so on. class="infoquote "We are a specialist legal firm p...


Fulton's Solicitors & Estate Agents: There were even comments we would consider completely useless such as "I will take my business elsewhere!" with no clarification about why. One thing to watch out for when going through reviews for conveyancing firms is to always read the actual review comment...


Frazer Coogans Ltd: qualified as a Solicitor in 2020"< div> That's the two ends of the experience bookshelf from what we could see, making a range of five decades worth of experience - but alongside some fresh legs too. There are many advantages to using alternatives such as Direct Acce...


Fieldfisher LLP: Even more odd was the comment about them having 'very understanding traffic wardens'. It may therefore come as a surprise that we have added Fieldfisher Llp to that list considering they seem like a 'common' large law firm. Establishment is something different in t...


Fair Result Ltd: There will be no cost to you for this work."< div> As free consultations go this is also quite a unique offer within the arena of Family Law. One last excerpt from the firm's site that stood out to us: class="infoquote "Our workloads are managed to ensure w...


Education Law Service Ltd: Therefore the number of firms helping in those areas are much fewer . This applies to the Education Law Service Ltd firm as well. The first quote in this article was from the Education Law Service Ltd's website. and in phone contact throughout"< div> If you...


Dylan Nair Solicitors Ltd: However, this can sometimes make it much easier to spot something that really does stand out . The main points you need can often be gained from a local Law Society. class="infoquote "We take the time to get to know our clients, work in partnership with them and are ...


DV Solicitors: As also mentioned above, the firm's branding may only have seven years behind it but the solicitors within the firm have much more than that. Reviews for property firms are therefore usually much lower than those for firms covering any other type of matter. Debt recover...


Cooks Solicitors: As in the previous article, Cooks Solicitors are also a trading name of Young and Co Solicitors Ltd . So make sure to read the reasons for any negative rating that has been left. All trading names, office locations, languages spoken, case types handled, solicitors' qualific...


CEL Solicitors: The firm's branding is quite clear and unique so searches for their name and the usual variants (e.g. We should know - we've been flicking through dozens of them daily for over twenty years . If you want to see the disparity between the number of firms willing to take...


Catteralls Solicitors: At the moment nearly every search variant we tried such as 'cateralls solicitors' or 'catterals solicitors' still brought up the correct firm. These are random snippets across a wide range of reviewers, most of whom decided that was the main feature they wanted to comm...


QualitySolicitors Burton & Co: One of the best resources for finding out the specialties and experience of the individual solicitors within a firm is the local law societies. For example John Wood qualified as a solicitor in 1977, Judith Brennan in 1987, Nicola Booth in 2001, Jodie Peters in 2016, r...


Branch Austin LLP: So how can you tell if a firm has specialist or jack-of-all solicitors? class="infoquote "Our team has extensive experience in working with commercial clients both in the UK and internationally."< div> Luckily this firm is registered with The Law Society of Eng...


BLZ Solicitors: That's not the case though and there are hundreds of firms out there that still charge full rates just to meet with them. www.blzsolicitors.co.uk is the official site we link to above and currently www.blzsolicitors.com doesn't seem to be owned by anyone. In our opinion you ...


Bilkus & Boyle: Vice versa, a firm quoting just a few years since opening could have several solicitors on board with dozens of years experience each. We always advise reading actual comments rather than just flicking through ratings though. Fortunately there are resources online ...


Bell Lax Solicitors: Bell Lax don't do this, which is probably just as well because in our poll last year only 8% of you said you trusted company-provided testimonials. If one firm says 'established in 1991', whilst another says '30 years experience as a solicitor', and another says '30 years ex...


Beers LLP: The reason you need to be aware of potential issues is because there are lot of scams going around just now targeting case types where clients have to pay large lump sums - such as property matters. A quick note on navigation as whilst the firm's name is quite unique, i...

DisrepairClaim.co.uk: 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. If you see that sort of post alongside no stated company name, no logo, no web address, and no mention of https: www.f...


Aspire Licensing: Aspire Licensing point this out themselves as well stating they have: class="infoquote "... The full firm's title is Aspire Licensing & Administrative Services with the official web address of www.aspirelicensing.co.uk, currently www.aspirelicensing.com is not in use. ...


Argue & Co Legal: (And I'm missing a couple of those.) It's just that unlike reviewing the food or service at a restaurant - people are not nearly as quick to share their experience of being defended in criminal court, a messy divorce, or dealing with the probate of a dead loved one. The...


Antony Hodari Solicitors: . Those are the obvious targets for fraud. One we saw last week was particularly odd because the complaint was about a criminal law firm that refused to handle a 'simple injury claim!'. We've also seen many disgruntled reviews over solicitors refusing to take someone's case....


Aconveyancing Ltd: Also, there is a huge issue of fake reviews where for every negative comment posted - suddenly several 5 star reviews (from people who have only ever reviewed that one firm) suddenly appear. As we're dealing with property matters is it absolutely vital that you check and tr...


ABS Lawyers Ltd: That means they've added up the experience years of everyone within the firm. Whilst this can fall into the same trap of the branding not always reflecting the experience of the actual lawyer assigned to your case - it is far more geniune a way to describe the firm's exper...
