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:

Bell Lax Solicitors: Funny article titles aside, they cover real issues. The majority of people want to check out public review boards such as https: www.google.com search?q=bell+lax+solicitors&rlz=1C1CHBF_en-GBGB926GB926&oq=Bell+Lax+Solicitors&aqs=chrome.0.0i355i512j46i175i199i512j0i22i30j69i...


JPS Walker Solicitors Ltd: That's because whilst people are more than happy to jump online and let people know about their lovely waitress or great local car wash - they are far less likely to rush onto the internet and broadcast about their messy divorce, bankruptcy, or life-destroying accident. It...


The Legal Practice Ltd: So whilst other industries have moved on to the point where restaurants, technologies, and even just social media sites are favoured by their newness - many solicitors still cling to the idea that ancient is better when it comes to law. People https: www.express.co.uk fi...


Youngs Solicitors: This is the final article in our series on this law group and it covers the main, sort of 'parent', branding within the Youngs Solicitors' setup. Please note that you can't have an ampersand (&) in a web address so anything like www.young&co.law will not exist. It's just tha...


Lefevres Law: There is another website at www.lefevre-litigation.co.uk which seems to be an individual site for their Aberdeen office. Lefevres do have some bits of customer feedback on their website. The name is quite unique so any searches for 'lefevers solicitors', 'lefevere's law', or...

David Stinson & Co: The official website is at www.davidstinson.co.uk, and at the moment www.davidstinson.com is a different firm. It can also be to capitalise on the brand name the firm has locally even after merging with another firm. Some firms provide testimonials on their website which a...


Cooks Solicitors: class="infoquote "We have been in business in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire for over twenty-eight years"< div> This may not seem like an important sentence to most regular clients looking for a solicitor. The experience levels of the solicitor running your c...


Swain & Co Solicitors Ltd: QualitySolicitors). Often after a specific feedback form has been filled out. Well two years later I've been paroled and am shortly due to go out ..."< div> There are often statements and words that give you a general 'feel' about a firm - such as on this occasion with ...


My Law Matters: But as long as the separate branding efforts have been strong (as Fentimans seem to have done with theirs), you should be able to check out reviews on the team you will be using plus the main firm behind it without any issues. Because whilst many negative comments can be t...


Frazer Coogans Ltd: But enough about what we think, what are previous clients saying about the firm? class="infoquote "Frazer Coogans always gave us accurate, informative and helpful information for us to make decisions" "Would definitely use them when we buy our next house" "...


QualitySolicitors Burton & Co: So why is that? On their own website of course there is the standard testimonials. It mainly discusses how a branding exercise can end up with any perfectly decent firm looking as though they are far less. The easiest comparison we can give is that 'Qualitysolicitors' is...


OneLaw Chambers: Fortunately, the legal industry itself has managed to bounce back with alternatives to keep the rusty wheels turning and allow those of us who aren't multi-million taking football celebrities to at least have some crumbs from the justice table. That may sound like a large ...


Beers LLP: Again, a very good reason to read the comments fully first. This is understandable because seeing any negative reviews can often reveal a lot about a firm . If there are several negative comments related to being uncontactable - that's a good thing to note. A quick not...

DisrepairClaim.co.uk: There are so many people living with severe issues in their homes out of either fear of their landlord or an inability to get their landlord to do anything. But remember, the compensation in housing disrepair matters is an extra sum on top for having had to live with the i...


Simper Law Ltd: At Simper Law they have legal professionals from each of the last three decades available. (Something companies tend not to include in their own testimonial section!) Negative reviews can be a great way to spot general themes of complaint. For some reason though, the legal i...


Reynolds Macdonald Solicitors: class="infoquote "If you choose to instruct us we will act on a No Win No Fee or fixed fee basis."< div> This is the main way such cases are funded. . There are various ways to have the case paid for , but as far as we're concerned no injury claim firm should e...


ULA Solicitors Ltd: However for ULA Solicitors there are plenty of in-depth reviews stating exactly how they were helped. We didn't have to search through the small print to find out. The most important figure we think people should focus on is not how old the brand name is, but the number of y...


Taylor Price Solicitors: A prime example is amongst the Google reviews for Taylor Price's business. This can then make them feel less capable. Similar looking domains designed to mislead you and other phishing scams are still rampant. Two, this also seems to be valid for their whole case range. Cert...


Michael Leighton Jones: However this offer seems to be for Michael Leighton Jones Solicitors' whole case range. That's a bigger deal than you might think. One of the best resources for estimating the experience levels of the actual solicitors at a firm is their local law society. There is a ...


Milners Solicitors: That may be confusing to use the word 'specialist' to describe both a firm that handles a single case range and one that covers a huge case range. We just mean that when people think of a high-street, local solicitor firm - Milner's is exactly the type of setup they im...


KRS Estate Planning Ltd: Sadly, most law firms we've seen (and we've been reviewing them for over 20 years now) still do not work weekends. Most of the alternate searches we did such as 'krs wills' and 'krs probate' still brought up the correct firm. They provide alternative trading names for e...


Branch Austin LLP: There were a couple of negative ratings, but unfortunately the reviewers left absolutely no comments for us to know what generated their disappointment. It's an enviable status to have which can surely only benefit clients. When you accidentally type the wrong address...


Trojan Solicitors Ltd: In those ancient times before the years began starting with a 20--, firms typically were either general practice or were known for a single case type. Millions and millions have been lost worldwide by https: www.theguardian.com money 2021 jan 02 homebuyers-scams-stamp-duty...


CEL Solicitors: It's always great to have options and many of those just mentioned could save considerable time and money over a regular 'high street' law office. If you go on to a search engine and use quotation marks around various terms, it will force results that contain th...


Fulton's Solicitors & Estate Agents: Just https: www.lawscot.org.uk find-a-solicitor ?Name=fulton&Postcode=&type=firm" some search results< a> class="infoquote "We have been helping our clients from our base in the south side of Glasgow for many years."< div> That's a line quoted from the Fulton's...


HooperHyde: But they're understandably less likely to share their experiences about a messy divorce, criminal charges they are facing, or suing their employer for sexual harassment. But these days with the number of self employed people rising exponentially - we've also seen a huge ri...


Antony Hodari Solicitors: class="infoquote "Our solicitors will keep you up to date with the progress of your claim throughout and will answer any questions you may have about the claims process."< div> Another thing people always check on are the public reviews in places such as Google, T...


Fair Result Ltd: Once you have decided you want a divorce, the application and Decree Nisi itself is relatively easy. One last excerpt from the firm's site that stood out to us: class="infoquote "Our workloads are managed to ensure we never have more than six live cases. There wer...


Dylan Nair Solicitors Ltd: The official site we link to above is www.dylannair.com however www.dylannair.co.uk does not seem to be currently owned by anyone. Often by simply emailing to tell say the bank details for their deposit have changed. Although the branding name used is quite unique and the po...


Mckie Legal: Most scammers target law firm clients that will be making a payment to their solicitor. That may sound like a very odd reason. We cover the reasons why solicitors do this in our article Jacobs Law Solicitors: But that's simply not true. 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. Some go too far such as listing favourite colours. class="infoquote "We pride ourselves on offering our clients...


Argue & Co Legal: And even a one star rating for a firm having moved offices to a place where the person had to pay for street parking instead of it being free. However it's easy to imagine getting lost in the numbers at a large firm as well. You will find it more likely for an actual so...


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. I'd received very short term advice which would have been great had I died within five years. There is a firm called Spring & Co ...


BLZ Solicitors: So unfortunately, this phrase has become quite meaningless in relation to indicating what the firm does differently. One solicitor has experience with the immigration process whilst the other originally worked for the 'enemy' - i.e. No really, that last one actually happens ...


Hawkridge & Company: class="infoquote "excellent friendly polite proffesional staff" "worked through the case very methodically but still managed to achieve the deadline needed" "seamless, professional and very friendly service" "always available when you need them and more ...


Pacific Law: Some are chargable, some aren't, some are really expensive. Any possible errors such as 'pacific solicitors' or 'pacific legal' may bring up different results in the search engines. We've also seen dozens of negative reviews followed by comments from the firm stating 'this p...


ABS Lawyers Ltd: That means they've added up the experience years of everyone within the firm. They're comfort with and use of the language extends to their responses to the comments people have left on review boards. One is to quote an ancient founding date such as 'established in 1882!' - ...


Stenfield Solicitors: The majority preferred to read comments on third party forums such as Google Reviews, Yell, Trustpilot or Yelp. We have niche practices, specialist consultants, barristers, and even non-law-firm related solutions to some problems such as debt or will writing. Any mentions of...


Khan Law: Always make sure you're on the correct website and never discuss bank details or payments via email . . The official site we link to above is www.khanlaw.co.uk with www.khanlaw.com showing information for a completely different firm in the US. However, please note that whe...


DV Solicitors: The statement about having served clients for seven years though may make them sound quite new compared to the hundreds of law firms boasting founding dates in the 1800s and beyond. class="infoquote "People rely on us, and we pride ourselves on our client-centered adv...


Richmond Legal Ltd: Whilst we have nothing against firms that try to cover a multitude of services, there are some that clearly go well beyond their capabilities. It's pretty bleak though and only getting worse. To use a description any less than 'expert' would clearly be unwise. class="...


Trust Inheritance Ltd: Clearly some mix up with company names in the area. Related domains such as www.trustinheritanceltd.com or the .co.uk do not currently exist. 'trust' and 'inheritance'. It's important to make sure you're looking at the correct information when researching them, and probabl...


Bilkus & Boyle: The opposite is also true as Bilkus & Boyle have a 5 star review for serving excellent food and being a dog friendly restaurant. But there are plenty of good indicators you may not have noticed between the lines. A quick note on navigation. As a Scottish busi...


Catteralls Solicitors: These are random snippets across a wide range of reviewers, most of whom decided that was the main feature they wanted to comment on. You are just as likely to get a one year qualified newbie solicitor from a one hundred year old practice as you are to get a twenty year well...


Penerley Lawyers: Penerley do have slightly longer opening hours than some firms and we saw one website listing them as having a half day Saturday open too. Penerleys only had three online reviews that we saw after digging through Google, Yell, Yelp and Trustpilot. Obviously with...


The Search Bureau: The lack of easily available reviews shouldn't be viewed negatively in these cases. We saw a few other related names including Premier Searches Limited and Conveyancing Compare, but they all have their own sites. All other variants we tried such as www.searchbureau.com...


Education Law Service Ltd: One lesser known area of litigation is Special Education Needs work (SEN). There are quite a few large firms that will take your Education Law case on. At the moment most scammers are https: www.eveningexpress.co.uk news business home-movers-warned-scammers-cou...


Pump Court Chambers: Even if someone phones you up asking about money, don't be afraid to politely decline and ring the firm back on the official number you have. There are dozens of types of cases where this is applicable and for most of them it will certainly be more time and cost efficient t...


Mason Bullock Solicitors: If you ever want to look up the specialties or qualification dates of the solicitor you are thinking of using, there is usually that information on the firm's local Law Society website. One of the solicitors retired in 2018 and the firm had to be restarted. However nothing ...


Lindsays Solicitors: It's quite refreshing to see. But one thing that impressed us about Lindsays is the same sort of lack-of-boasting as we saw with their testimonials page before. However www.lindsays.com and other common variants people will probably try such as www.lindsayssolicitors.co.uk...


Aspire Licensing: The same is sometimes true of debt matters. People have given away millions each year to fraudsters. A last word from Aspire's own site: class="infoquote "Aspire Licensing and Administrative Services offers a one stop shop for all licensing services applied for under t...


OTS Solicitors Ltd: Common errors we would expect such as dropping the extra 's' (i.e. However there are some firms that may look like they cover many areas of law but are still 'specialists'. (Wherever that expression came from.) class="infoquote "OTS Solicitors is a well-known firm...


Reid Black Solicitors: But Reid Black state they will give you a free interview for 'any legal issue' which is a lot less common than you might think. Reid Black were one of the first firms we approached. But even that still had a 5 star rating and ended with a bit about how the extra exp...


Howe + Co Solicitors: This can sometimes end up in reviews about the wrong firm being placed. Howe & Co have one detailing some of their more high profile cases and some of the firm's background. And by tiny, we mean absolutely unreadable. There are hundreds of reports of people https: ww...


Robin Somerville Direct Access Barrister: With of course no mention of what the awards were for (it could have been Best Logo 2002) or what area they are considering the 'leading' firm of (it could be their own very small village). A quite note on navigation as the this is obviously the barrister's name as th...


Levins Solicitors: class="infoquote "We were established in 1986 as Keith Levin & Co, initially in Huyton village."< div> There is a trend amongst law firms to state the most ancient founding date they can no matter how tenous the link. Levins Solicitors are also quoted many ...


Aconveyancing Ltd: As we're dealing with property matters is it absolutely vital that you check and triple check the websites you go to and the emails you respond to. A quick note on navigation as the firm's branding includes the generic "conveyancing" wording from the industry they'r...
