Looking for Reviews of Popular UK Firms?

So many firms all saying how amazing they are but only a handful actually have public reviews. This is simply because most people treat legal matters very differently from a hotel stay or a CD player. (Yes, those still exist.) The matters are often hugely private so giving details to strangers won't be easy. But also most don't end immediately after you've just had something go right or wrong and people can be concerned about insulting a firm you may need to clear some last minute things up with a few months later. So these are some editorial reviews that might help:

Hawkridge & Company: Frankly many issues are totally outside your solicitor's control such as land searches, mortgage applications and so on. The most useful of these are the qualification dates of the solicitors at each firm which are made available publicly. These kinds of things are not autom...


Pacific Law: It's the brand that's been around for centuries - not the people. But sadly the confusion over 0345, 08000, 0808, 0871, etc. Versus the other side proclaiming their distate for all things stuffy and blasting a thesaurus-worth of synonyms of the word 'modern' across their s...


ABS Lawyers Ltd: If the firm you're researching is signed up to them - wonderful. Of course, no firm would ever state the opposite of these sentiments. That means they've added up the experience years of everyone within the firm. Lastly there are firms that write statements such as the ...


Stenfield Solicitors: A last word from the firm's site: class="infoquote "98% of clients said they were happy with the result we achieved for them"< div>. class="infoquote "Stenfield Solicitors is a multidisciplinary law firm serving national and international clients from its offices...


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...

DV Solicitors: One last snippet from the firm's site: class="infoquote "We are here to offer all the expertise and support you will need"< div>. DV Solicitors have other positive points. We didn't just add them because of some positive reviews and the fact they handle cases i...


Richmond Legal Ltd: Law societies can be national, countywide, or attached to a large population city. What does that mean? For us it indicates that the firm genuinely do have an affinity and expertise for the two areas of law . Typically firms will handle a wide range of case types, or t...


Trust Inheritance Ltd: A last word from the firm's website: class="infoquote "We set the benchmark for excellence and go that extra mile to make that happen!"< div>. If you https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk organisation people 495611 trust-inheritance-limited?Solicitors=True" check out ...


Bilkus & Boyle: As a Scottish business ourselves, we hope our national Law Society can catch up and provide a bit more in the future . A quick note on navigation. Another line on their site that probably sticks out to us more than to regular consumers would be: class="inf...


Catteralls Solicitors: Catteralls are signed up with The Law Society of England & Wales which is great because they have a fantastic website full of consumer information on firms. class="infoquote "Catteralls Solicitors have been based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire for over 100 years."< di...


Penerley Lawyers: This is because some people's complaints can be ridiculously petty, and some can be attached to the totally wrong firm. You don't actually have to be a qualified solicitor to sell someone some employee contract templates or provide advice on setting up your small business. T...


The Search Bureau: SDLT.co.uk help stop stamp tax form rejections by pre-populating the forms and providing a printed SDLT5 certificate - they've handled over 3.6 million submissions to the HMRC already. The lack of easily available reviews shouldn't be viewed negatively in these cases. ...


Education Law Service Ltd: This applies to the Education Law Service Ltd firm as well. It was still very positive : class="infoquote "excellent on the day ... For example Wills and many Tax matters can be handled by companies without any legal qualifications. and in phone contact througho...

Pump Court Chambers: People are being tricked into https: www.thisismoney.co.uk money beatthescammers article-3897256 Beware-fraudsters-targeting-house-sale-proceeds.html" handing over their house deposits into a fraudster's< a> bank account from just a simple official looking (but fake) emai...


Mason Bullock Solicitors: This niche focus and lengthy experience clearly makes for a efficient and effective service if the public reviews are anything to go by: class="infoquote "professional, personable and has always been discreet and sensitive" "go out of their way to help people...


Aspire Licensing: For cases such as Motor Offenses or a Personal Injury, absolutely we would recommend a firm that is clearly a law office. Their website is https secure though for entering your person details in the contact form. They also provide help with courses that will often be requi...


OTS Solicitors Ltd: Making it more of a group of specialists under one banner, rather than a law firm with a few solicitors trying to cover everything at once. There are quite a few ways to check the differences between firms though. These are on the national, county or often city level if...


Reid Black Solicitors: It simply means that when we researched the firm at the time they came up as being a good firm, covering a good range, with little or no complaints registered on forums or with the relevant organisations. Reid Black were one of the first firms we approached. So being ...


Howe + Co Solicitors: Luckily there are many resources available on the web for some independent backchecks and information. class="infoquote "Howe + Co Solicitors are a leading London law firm specialising in complex litigation both in the UK and internationally"< div> Unfortun...


Robin Somerville Direct Access Barrister: class="infoquote "Robin is a direct access barrister, mediator, investigator and arbitrator who has been involved in over 1,000 cases spanning more than 19 years"< div> Straight off the bat we liked this opening statement on barrister Robin Somerville's website....


Levins Solicitors: Most discussing why you should use them of course. class="infoquote "Levins are still the biggest provider of legal services in Knowsley"< div> An online resource we always highly recommend is The Law Society of England & Wales' website. Exactly what most peopl...


Aconveyancing Ltd: None of that seemed to apply to Aconveyancing's reviews. To be honest though, such claims are just marketing ploys. Take Aconveyancing up on their offer: class="infoquote "we know the last thing you want during the conveyancing process is a property lawyer you ca...


The Injury Solicitor Ltd: A few other bits and pieces stand out in The Injury Solicitor's offering. class="infoquote "The Injury Solicitor is a niche law firm specialising in recovering compensation for our clients who have been involved in a Road Traffic Accident"< div> Sadly, ma...


RD Costings: Quite often a personal injuries practice will state no win, no fee and leave it at that. The 25% is sometimes more of a bonus. When you see firms stating "no win, no fee" across their site, that doesn't necessarily mean there are no fees at all. Then after you'...


MGBe Legal: What about prior clients? The legal industry is not the same as other such as retail when it comes to public reviews. If someone is not quite experienced enough for your personal injury claim, you might be a few hundred pounds less-better-off in your compensation settl...


McEwan Fraser Legal: For all you know, the awards this firm have won are 'best logo design' or 'nice employer'. But that's something we're not totally sold on. That's quite unheard of. Whilst MFL are mentioned in the https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk organisation offices 6448 mcewan-fraser-l...


Fieldfisher LLP: Even more odd was the comment about them having 'very understanding traffic wardens'. We therefore think there may be some confusion with the firm's name when people are searching to leave reviews. Normally when a firm gets that big, they move into practically ev...


APS Legal & Associates: If you don't want to scroll through the whole sales pitch, then just scroll down to the bottom of any page. Whilst a quick glance of their website may make it appear as just another Will Writing service, there are actually quite large differences between the setups behind e...


Linkilaw Solicitors: So how does the modern Linkilaw stack up from that angle? class="infoquote "We have a varied skill set across a wide multitude of practice areas, sectors and also client types."< div> One resource we always recommend are The Law Society websites. But it's certa...


Integral Law Ltd: Obviously this brings up the question of 'company establishment dates'. A good balance of seasoned understanding along side some younger blood. When Integral Law first popped up on our radar, they did not have a website. They will provide you with alternative tra...


NV Legal Ltd: There are two frequently used catchphrases when it comes to Personal Injury matters. There are quite a few independent forums such as Google, Trustpilot, Yelp, Yell.com and so on which can often provide far more insight into how a firm treats it's clients than the testimonia...


Simons Rodkin Solicitors LLP: General practice solicitors, niche local firms, nationwide multi-office firms, direct access barristers, and specialists only handling a single case type. But as they deal in property matters, we would absolutely recommend bookmarking the website to make sure you come back...


DFA Law LLP: You can always hang up and call them back on the phone number you know is definitely for the firm. For larger life-changing matters, maybe not. DFA Law on the other hand has both a long establishment date and well-experienced staff on board: class="infoquote "We have...


Ian Mallon Solicitors: That's great, and more firms should follow their setup . As the firm uses the founder's name rather than generic law keywords for it's web address, there shouldn't be as many possible issues . A last word to sum up from the firm themselves: class="infoquote "Wh...


Asghar & Co Ltd: One last noteable snippet from the firm's website: class="infoquote "Individuals and businesses that have been referred to us are usually by other legal professionals, former or existing clients, personal recommendations, local business, and community links."< di...


Thorpe Wilson Solicitors: We have seen terms such as 'Thorpe & Wilson' showing up in the search stats which currently brings the correct firm up. No matter what firm you're researching though, we always recommend reading comments rather than relying on general star ratings. Thorpe Wilson don't have a...


Allsop Durn Solicitors: class="infoquote "With Close Communication And Attention To Detail, We Ensure That Our Legal Guidance Reassures And Protects You And Your Family."< div> You've probably noticed that the majority of law firms have almost identical sales pitch text on their websites...


MTA Personal Injury Solicitors LLP: It's a hugely helpful resource. No win, no fee means that if your case loses you will not have to pay anything and there are no up front costs either. It also helps them hide who they really are to avoid complaints. always had time to discuss any queries< div> There's a...


Apprise Legal Services: The only similar organisation we could find a registration with was https: www.willwriters.com listing david-graham-apprise-legal-services " The Society of Will Writers < a>, but unfortunately they provide no real insight or background into each firm beyond the contact i...


Aina Khan Law Ltd: You can therefore do this with most firms you're researching if they are making large claims without providing clarifications. 35+ countries covered."< div> Another thing we see alot is firms stating they are 'Award Winning' with no further reference to what that award ...


Taborns Legal Business: Hopefully after reading this it's a little clearer why we added this particular firm to our network despite the lack of the usual information we tend to rely on in order to make our decisions. But Taborns has a very different approach to business law compared to the r...


R James Hutcheon Solicitors: class="infoquote "very friendly and professional from the start and kept me regularly updated throughout the case" "Communication was good throughout always keeping me informed of developments regarding the claim." "Personally my experience was good with this company...


Penn Chambers Solicitors: One thing that made us feel a certain kinship with this particular law firm was their T&Cs section. On the subject of navigation though, please note that the official site is www.pennchambers.co.uk with www.pennchambers.com not currently showing anything. It doesn't ha...


Frank Rogers Law Ltd: Certainly if you can get these basic answers sorted first, you can get much more out of your free consultation . You can usually look up the qualification dates and expertise of most solicitors on The Law Socienty's website. The idea being that a solicitor who handles ...


OJ Solicitors Ltd: So having plenty of independent reviews to go through is always helpful. Right now, a search for "OJ Solicitors" on search engines brings up the correct firm with the official www.oj-solicitors.co.uk website. However www.ojsolicitors.co.uk is owned by a different firm. We'r...


Kudos Legal Ltd: Some sections kept flicking into broken coding when viewing the site on our phones tablets. does a amazing job and keeps you up to date"< div> On the whole very positive. communicated well at each step of the claim" - "Excellent service. So despite many law firms...


Serious Law LLP: John Sherrington qualified in 1985, Timothy Walters in 1997, Jerard Knott in 2002, and right up to Rebecca Hilton in 2017. Plus they list their opening hours as 8am-10pm 7 days a week . Typically if the firm's website does not have 'Serious Catastrophic Injuries' as a speci...


5 Essex Court: We've never understood why so many law firms feel the need to share all the staff's hobbies and favourite foods. You would take your case to a solicitor, they would run it, and they would hire a barrister to represent you. But probably more so because Direct Access is unfort...


Avery Walters Solicitors: This article is only about the Avery Walters side though and the website for them is www.averywalters.com with www.averywalters.co.uk redirecting you there as well. Of course some of it is just common sense and a bit of online experience. Another has been responded to saying...


AWH Solicitors: However with anyone able to make a flashy website and write good sales pitches - how do you know the best options for you? If you saw one firm had a multi-level office space with a dozen staff dressed smartly and a string of qualifications posted around the walls - fine. T...


Hampson Hughes Solicitors: From Ian Troop and Carlos Lopez (both qualified in 2000), to Paul Hampson (2005) and Gary Doward (2019) it's a good sign of tempered experience mixed with fresh faces hungry to prove themselves. Plus we see some people calling them Hampson and Hughes too. One of the founders...


Lawcomm Solicitors: Another stated how they had been serving the local community for over a hundred years simply because they bought the building from a longer established firm. If you look up https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk organisation people 591051 lawcommercial-trading-limited?Solicit...


Redwood Collections Ltd: Some are only set up to send threatening letters. I was very pleased with the outcome ..."< div> Oddly the vast majority of the reviews are positive on Google, Yelp, Yellow Pages and others. Redwood managed to get my money back. There aren't too many possible variants t...


Alexander JLO Solicitors: class="infoquote "... We agree and many solicitors have started doing at least one late night a week or a couple of half day Saturdays in the month. On the AlexanderJLO site each staff member has a direct email address displayed and a link to their personal reviews...


GloverPriest Solicitors: our lawyers have a wealth of experience in dealing with legal matters from start to finish." < div> That's one of the biggest concerns for people and something that will always incur negative reviews for a firm. We therefore absolutely recommend bookmarking the official...


Jarmans Solicitors Ltd: Our clients receive City of London expertise at Kentish rates."< div>. She was completely professional and sensitive throughout the process, keeping me updated on progress regularly. Firms should not be forever stained for the actions of one bad staff member who was fired al...


33Legal Ltd: That isn't so. My daughter is now 12 and obsessed with something called 'Tik Tok'. So what drew us to 33 Legal Ltd in order for us to be recommending them to people. If you've done a little of your own homework, you'll have seen that 33 Legal Ltd was incorporated in early 20...
