Choosing a Solicitor
We understand that choosing a solicitor can sometimes feel like a daunting task, particularly given the significance of matters to you or your family. When choosing a solicitor, you may find it helpful and reassuring to seek out others’ views and experiences, either online or through talking to friends, family and colleagues. We very much encourage that.
First impressions matter. It is important that you are able to speak to an approachable and experienced person when making an enquiry or seeking a quote and that any information provided is accurate, easy to understand and received promptly. How well things are handled at this early stage is likely to reflect the level of service and the overall experience that you can expect over time and this should help you to decide whether you feel that you would be in safe hands.
When contacting us, our solicitors and advisers will listen carefully to your needs, help to assess your individual situation and advise on a way forward which aims to achieve the best outcome for you.
They will be on-hand and easily contactable when needed, providing peace of mind and ensuring that you are kept fully informed at every stage. We can meet with you at our conveniently located offices, travel to you for certain types of appointments, or provide advice remotely
