Great question, here are five things I’d advise you to look for in your solicitors:
The best way to get an overall sense of how good or bad a solicitors firm
is is to look at what other clients have said about them. A track record of positive reviews indicates that they’re good at what they do.
Prices can vary massively from between difference solicitors. You want to look for something in your budget, but generally, the price is also an indication of quality. The cheaper they are, the less likely they are to be a good choice.
Solicitors can specialize in different legal areas. Are you looking for solicitors for a civil case? Family law? Employment law? Choose a firm that specializes in the type of case you’re facing.
It’s best to choose a firm located in the area you’re taking/facing legal action in as they’ll be more familiar with the courts. If you’re in London, choose solicitors in London.
In your initial meeting, get a sense of how comfortable you feel with the solicitor. You’ll be working with them closely, so it’s important to have a good rapport and feel comfortable around them.
