A City Law Firm Ltd: So if you're having trouble finding them bear that in mind. A City Law Firm has been on our network for a while now and has many aspects about it you may have come across in your search for legal help and wondered what it means or where you can get more information. So if...


Buchanan & Co Solicitors: it sounds great but doesn't actually provide you any information to help you separate them from any other firm. The page for Buchanan & Co Solicitors shows solicitors Timothy Barlow as having qualified in 1989 and Julia Gibbons in 2001. While many people are quite h...


Goldsmith Bowers Solicitors: class="infoquote "Flexible, quality service by experienced staff. But we have no hesitation in stating a firm with a specialist business department or a fully specialist firm like Goldsmith Bowers are far more likely to be able to help with a commercial law matter c...


Guardian Law: Most https: www.thesun.co.uk money 17881174 property-scam-fraud-our-house " target the clients of law firms that handle conveyancing< a> matters but you never know what they'll come up with next. class="infoquote "our specialist employment lawyers can advise and re...

WH Solicitors: It's not enough to just say you are a specialist. That's not to dismiss larger firms with multiple specialists on board. They are all very positive, mention Waleed by name and often discussed what the case was for. (And that's tough to say living in one of them!) ...


Two Harcourt Buildings: So whilst The Direct Access scheme is a major, massive, and immensely helpful shake up to the legal system allowing members of the public to deal direct with their representation rather than paying a solicitor to be a go-between - there is still a long way to go. The...


MJV & Co Solicitors Ltd: They haven't even added on the expertise of any other staff at the firm which probably comes to another 10 years on top. Sadly, this honest description of theirs is actually much rarer than you might think! class="infoquote "We pride ourselves on providing a professio...


Bridge McFarland LLP: Depending on which browser you use a typo can end up with you seeing adverts for other firms if not simply pushing you directly to the wrong site. If you look up https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk organisation people 621785 bridge-mcfarland-llp" the staff page< a> for th...


Woodstock Legal Services: You'll see Peter Fowler qualified in 1974, Roger Clayson in 1981, Nichola Turpin in 2009, Carly Jermyn in 2010, right up to Rebecca Newton in 2017. There are several other things that stood out to us about this firm as well such as the professional https: www.woodsto...


Stephanie Heijdra: Even reviews are hard to come by which we'll cover in a moment. She also has an LLM in Legal Practice."< div> You'll find that barristers are much more embedded in the legal process which is why their photos are often of them in wigs and robes whilst solicitor websit...


Summerfield Browne Solicitors: For example whilst Cambridge has a full 5 stars, the London office has only 3.5 stars at the time we checked. Most of the variants we tried brought up the correct site in the top search results spot but many brought up adverts for other firms. This is a very good example of ...


Thaxted Legal Ltd: We've written over 200+ articles on legal service providers in the UK with tips on what to look for when trying to get legal help, resources you can use, and things to avoid. etc. There are countless numbers of fraudsters https: www.telegraph.co.uk money consumer-affairs h...

Smith and Graham Solicitors: Make sure you're on the correct site and don't discuss bank details or payments via email.. class="infoquote "Established in 1888, Smith and Graham Solicitors has continued to expand into one of the leading firms in the North East of England"< div> While that ...


Brown and Co Solicitors: If a firm states they have a certain number of years' experience 'within the firm' this usually means they've added up all staff's experience together to make the number bigger. Obviously we have checked out Brown & Co and ended up adding them to our list of fir...


Mackenzie Jones Solicitor: Sadly we've seen many other firms focus more on the social side of things by stating each staff member's pets, hobbies, and even favourite foods. in public as they are about the local pizza place. However with this firm handling conveyancing matters you need to be extra care...


Hill House Chambers: The main website is at www.hillhousechambers.co.uk which we link to above. As Hill House Chambers puts it: class="infoquote "The Direct Access (or Public Access) scheme allows members of the public to instruct an authorised barrister directly ... For the case type...


Stowe Family Law: But you've probably come across a dozen law firms that claim to be the 'best', 'specialist' or 'largest in' such-and-such on their website as well. As you can see there is a wide range of experience within Stowe, with solicitor's start dates covering all of the past f...


Rose Fendlen Law: In this example these are all types of litigation matter. Most people that end up on our site have usually already scrolled through a dozen or so law firm sites before getting here. This isn't too much of a concern though as Litigation firms such as RF Law are not rea...


Bell Lax Solicitors: But that doesn't mean we don't understand the value that list of cases has in indicating their genuine establishment, experience, and expertise . Surely an enviable staff selection for any firm to have? It should hopefully mean wise, seasoned heads but with eager, fresh i...


JPS Walker Solicitors Ltd: Especially when you consider no firm is going to claim the opposite (i.e. So if you see a law firm with barely a handful, or even zero, reviews - don't take that as some sort of negative sign. But sometimes the clues are in what initially might seem common, almost munda...


The Legal Practice Ltd: This seems to be an actual goal or at least a point of pride for the firm because we also saw this statement on their website: class="infoquote "At your request we are able to provide communication in Gurjrati, Hindi, Konkani, Marathi, Punjabi, Swahili, and Urdu."< div...


Youngs Solicitors: The only negative comments we saw related to the length of time a house sale took. Sometimes it's as little as having received an official looking email that said the bank details for payment have changed. At the time we checked, they were clickable images rather than live ...


Lefevres Law: For example, Lefevres are listed in the Legal Aid board database. In the same way, under the umbrella of Family Law there is the related case titles of Divorce and Child Custody. Usually this might cause some concern over potential issues such as ' https: www.merriam-...


David Stinson & Co: It can also be to capitalise on the brand name the firm has locally even after merging with another firm. 9 times out of 10 they will just be variations of 'I would recommend them highly'. But you never know what scammers will think of next so it's often a good idea to boo...


Cooks Solicitors: It can therefore be a good idea to bookmark the site or use a search function instead just in case. For example those firms stating 'founded in 1881' or even older dates. All trading names, office locations, languages spoken, case types handled, solicitors' qualification d...


Swain & Co Solicitors Ltd: Having the resources of a larger firm can also have advantages . Their site is https secure for entering your personal details in their contact form. Whilst most scams at the moment https: www.thetimes.co.uk static connected-families conveyancing-email-scam-hackers-s...


My Law Matters: The official site we link to above is www.mylawmatters.co.uk but www.mylawmatters.com does not redirect you there. They provide all alternate trading names, other office locations, languages spoken, case types handled, and the qualification dates of each solicitor with...


Frazer Coogans Ltd: The official site we link to above is www.frazercoogans.co.uk but www.frazercoogans.com does not redirect you there. A quick note on navigation. At 1to1Legal we also have a staff member who went through law school whilst working here, so we're very aware the...


QualitySolicitors Burton & Co: To be on the safe side though, make sure to bookmark the current site in case you want to come back. Especially those with https: www.theguardian.com money 2019 aug 24 the-45000-deposit-for-our-first-home-was-stolen-and-the-banks-did-nothing" huge house deposits w...


OneLaw Chambers: So how do One Law's barristers fare on those: class="infoquote "great communication and outcome highly professional" "exceptionally professional, friendly, ready to attend to your call at anytime of the day" "very knowledgeable and explained the whole process...


Beers LLP: The official website we link to above is www.beersllp.com but www.beersllp.co.uk does not redirect you there. However that doesn't mean we ignore flaws or hide negative press when we find it. But you can always end up with a 1-year-qualified lawyer from the 200-year-old firm...


DisrepairClaim.co.uk: They are a Claims Management Company specialising in the very niche case focus of Landlord Tenant disputes about https: www.itv.com news 2021-04-13 investigation-launched-into-disgusting-damp-and-mouldy-council-housing-after-itv-news-report" disrepair matters within rente...


Simper Law Ltd: That means most rely on the public review forums such as Google, Facebook, Yelp, Yell.com and Trustpilot. Kim Simper comes up as having qualified as a solicitor in 1992, with Sally Riches qualifying in 2001, and Victoria Rose-Smart in 2016. At first glance Simper Law l...


Reynolds Macdonald Solicitors: Currently neither www.rmsolicitors.co.uk or www.reynoldsmacdonald.co.uk seems to be owned by the firm. Normally this is done by simply emailing the client stating the bank details for payment have changed. The main issue with similar domains not being owned or extra si...


ULA Solicitors Ltd: There is a difference (and we'll tell you how to spot it below) between a firm where all the solicitors try to handle all the various case types - and a firm where each of the solicitors are specialists in their own area of law. class="infoquote "At ULA Solicitors, ...


Taylor Price Solicitors: But later on in the site they also state: class="infoquote "The management team spearheading Taylor Price Solicitors consists of legal professionals with over 45 years of combined legal experience"< div> Which is the main point to take away from this mini-rant abo...


Michael Leighton Jones: A 200 year old firm could still stick you with a 1-year qualified lawyer. But to be honest, it's not as if any law firm is ever going to claim being the opposite (i.e. However this offer seems to be for Michael Leighton Jones Solicitors' whole case range. For some reason, th...


Milners Solicitors: We did see a few negative ratings but the comments were not particularly helpful as to why such a rating had been left. Some have a bit more background about their work life. It's something certainly Personal Injury law firm will offer because the majority run cases on no wi...


KRS Estate Planning Ltd: Whereas if a company says 'we have been helping people for over twenty years' that doesn't mean the person assigned to you will have twenty years' experience. At the moment most scams in the law industry are aimed at property sales purchases with fraudsters https: www.lloy...


Branch Austin McCormick LLP: The database publicly https: www.legal500.com how-it-works " lists the sort of criteria< a> used when creating the Legal 500 list too.

CEL Solicitors: That's something we see a lot of when firms claim to be 'award-winning' too and it makes us suspicious. class="infoquote "We operate 99% paper free, unless the court or our clients request physical letters. We should know - we've been flicking through dozens of them ...


Fulton's Solicitors & Estate Agents: There were the expected negative reviews though which did tend to follow the common pattern for negative comments of conveyancing firms - e.g. But if a firm states 'we have thirty years of combined experience within the firm' - that could mean ten members of staff with just ...


HooperHyde: Sometimes it can be quite beneficial . They are a specialist firm focusing on helping businesses, but also have a different 'feel' to them from firms we already worked with. At the time of writing we couldn't find any reviews on the regular third party sites. People are abs...


Antony Hodari Solicitors: To us that's a bit of a cheat. But we didn't find out the spark that created Antony Hodari. You might also see claims such as 'combined experience of X years' which simply means all the staff's experience years added together. We never know what fraudsters will come up with ...


Fair Result Ltd: However no-one seemed willing ... That means scouring dozens of company websites a day and spending a (possibly obsessive) amount of hours trawling through the various forums and news stories. Even 'fair result ltd' provided only a handful of related sites including their ...
