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: Very often a bunch of the negative reviews will be from the client of the other party. Because we spotted a few negative comments that were followed by Hawkridge & Co stating that person was not a client of theirs. However for this you are usually able to check this independ...


Pacific Law: The official website we link to above is www.pacificlaw.co.uk, however recently they changed this www.pacificlaw.org - but either will get you to the correct website. In our opinion both sides are just marketing language. Pacific Law is very new addition to our database...


ABS Lawyers Ltd: That means we try to provide a range of various solutions AND firms that can provide them. You can easily end up with a 1-year qualified lawyer from a 200-year old firm. The fact ABS is so rare in this regard , is quite odd considering that other than English, https: ww...


Stenfield Solicitors: However one was by a third party who's own solicitor lost against Stenfield, and the other didn't leave any helpful comments about what was wrong. class="infoquote "Stenfield Solicitors is a multidisciplinary law firm serving national and international clients from its...


Khan Law: The majority of people can easily imagine a significant difference between a motor offence specialist and a general practice solicitor trying such a case. For example, we could not find an individual page on the firm or it's practising solicitors to link to. So what else ...

DV Solicitors: As also mentioned above, the firm's branding may only have seven years behind it but the solicitors within the firm have much more than that. You may get a forty year experienced solicitor from a law firm brand that started up yesterday. People have https: www....


Richmond Legal Ltd: class="infoquote "Providing expert legal advice and representation for Personal injury, Immigration, Professional Discipline and litigation matters."< div> If you've already flicked through a dozen other law firm's websites today in your search for representation,...


Trust Inheritance Ltd: Rather than simply only doing the one case types, specialists in Estate matters will often cover a much wider range of issues and provide a much wider range of services. Another thing that should be mentioned though is the level of alternate and individual services Trust I...


Bilkus & Boyle: By that we mean they handle conveyancing which is an area of law packed with unhappy clients. But the client will generally blame their own solicitor. Never discuss payment or bank details via email. People are https: www.theguardian.com money 2021 jan 02 homebuyers-scams...


Catteralls Solicitors: class="infoquote "Our highly skilled team are specialist solicitors who cover family law, child-care, wills & probate, litigation & disputes, as well as employment law, and many more."< div> These sorts of statements are the ones we usually advise people to pay cl...


Penerley Lawyers: Only five years ago one lawyer said to us 'that internet? no we don't do that' when we asked about their online offerings. 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 busine...


The Search Bureau: They've partnered with some of the leading industry firms such as Landmark Information Group who ensure conveyancers meet their regulatory requirements. However, as already mentioned at the outset of this piece, there often isn't as much to go on when it comes to ser...


Education Law Service Ltd: Criminal Injury and Uninsured Driver cases are often like this because they involved pursuing money from the government. Some are less obliging offering just 15 minutes over the phone to help decide if it's a case they can handle and quote you for doing the work. The f...

Pump Court Chambers: They want clients 2 miles, 20, or even 200 miles away. Now whenever there are various court matters where you will need a barrister - you can usually hire one yourself directly. These are not just other offices of the same group of barristers. This always seemed un-nec...


Mason Bullock Solicitors: Mason Bullock don't have a company-made testimonial section on their site either. Typically we research a firm completely unbias and make the decision based on several factors such as their setup, case range, reviews, standing with the relevant regulatory bodies, and so on...


Aspire Licensing: You can always hang up and ring back on the phone number you know is correct to ask about it. Whilst we often discuss the pros and cons of using specialists, we usually are talking about firms that handle Business Law compared to a firm that tries to handle absolutely everyt...


OTS Solicitors Ltd: Perhaps there's more to it however none of the articles we've read have suggested such. These are on the national, county or often city level if the population is big enough. If you https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk office 601629 ots-solicitors-ltd" check the pages fo...


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. So how do Reid Black Solicitors stack up on independent boards? ...


Howe + Co Solicitors: Let alone the actual people trying to get in. The official website we link to above is www.howe.co.uk, with www.howe.com taking you to a design company in the USA. One of the few areas of law Howe & Co don't actually handle though is Conveyancing, which is the most common le...


Robin Somerville Direct Access Barrister: The old 'Jack of all trades ...' maxim. We tried the following week and it still didn't work. However, we couldn't get it to work. Some are not Direct Access qualified and whilst they will talk to you about your case - they will then tell you of local solicitors you need to ...


Levins Solicitors: But the solicitor will always get the blame. A good mix of seasoned wisdom alongside young blood eager to prove themselves. You can always hang up and call back on the phone number you know is correct. We're not too fond of people sharing their favourite colours or pet name...


Aconveyancing Ltd: Also, there is a huge issue of fake reviews where for every negative comment posted - suddenly several 5 star reviews (from people who have only ever reviewed that one firm) suddenly appear. If we had to find a niggle with this firm, then that would be it - i.e. Especially i...


The Injury Solicitor Ltd: Ten years may not sound like a lot when confronted by law firms stating establishment dates back in the 1800s. But we also add firms that are large, small, niche, general practice, or just an alternative resource such as Direct Access barristers or Mediation Providers. How...


RD Costings: Then after you've had the initial interview, have gone all the way down to their office, and are ready to sign on the dotted line for them to proceed - that's when the small print comes out about them taking 25% of your compensation if they win. class="infoquote "The ...


MGBe Legal: Always be aware of what site you're on though and never discuss payments via email or if someone calls you up. Certainly you can usually find some comments from previous clients across the popular forums such as Google, Trustpilot, Yell.com, Yelp, etc. From the queries we'...


McEwan Fraser Legal: This is because a huge number of people have a bad experience selling buying a property in England for obvious reasons. Therefore firms that cover nationwide across the UK will have a huge amount of negative reviews about how they didn't stop a seller buyer pulling out...


Fieldfisher LLP: They didn't provide any specifics other than to state something such as having been dealt with 'rudely'. If you've used our site before to find legal help in your area, or if you've simply read through a few of our review articles - you'll have noticed that we tend to recomm...


APS Legal & Associates: class="infoquote "In this unregulated environment, we have aligned ourselves with the Institute of Professional Will Writers (IPW)."< div> . The majority of scams tend to be with https: monzo.com blog we-sent-our-house-deposit-to-a-fraudster-who-posed-as-our-la...


Linkilaw Solicitors: They provide full pages on the firms and all the staff. Sadly there is a large chunk of business owners who will whole heartedly accept what a YouTube vlogger tells them is the correct way to do things. Chances are most review sites will do the same and just change some titl...


Integral Law Ltd: (No, really.) The truth of the matter is that there are no 200 year old solicitors at these firms sat behind a desk as some sort of all-knowing guru. The other is Integral Legal Services which don't actually handle direct client cases anyway. A quick note on naviga...


NV Legal Ltd: NV Legal are with The Law Society of England & Wales which actually has one of the best society websites we've seen . 'No win, no fee' and '100% compensation'. There are quite a few independent forums such as Google, Trustpilot, Yelp, Yell.com and so on which can often pro...


Simons Rodkin Solicitors LLP: We also saw that neither www.srlaw.co.uk or the .com redirected you to the correct site. However we've been writing articles on law firms for over 20+ years now. But as they deal in property matters, we would absolutely recommend bookmarking the website to make sure you co...


DFA Law LLP: Luckily there are a lot more resources online to help choose a law firm than is probably known to most people. So how do we know DFA Law have experience staff? Most legal professionals are signed up to a local Law Society. Which sounds great, but in reality the person...


Ian Mallon Solicitors: So right off the bat it's obvious that we already have a high opinion of Ian Mallon Solicitors otherwise they wouldn't have been added to our network to begin with. That's great, and more firms should follow their setup . Just make sure to watch carefully at the webs...


Asghar & Co Ltd: The number of larger firms we know that still choose to work under the scheme are few and far between. are indicative of the general feel. We also recommend that if someone calls you to discuss money, you politely hang up and call back the official phone number you were give...


Thorpe Wilson Solicitors: So what can we tell you about Thorpe Wilson Solicitors? Well you may have noticed that like many other firms, Thorpe Wilson make statements such as: class="infoquote "Specialists in the following fields: Wills and Probate, Immigration, Family Law, Employment, H...


Allsop Durn Solicitors: A lot of this sales jargon means nothing. A quick note on navigation. really.) So always put the star ratings into context by reading the comments that go with. We geniunely, 100%, not-making-it-up had a solicitor at one firm say to us "The Internet? No, we don't do ...


MTA Personal Injury Solicitors LLP: However, it should be available across their range of claims services as it's mentioned in the majority of their other advertising. We get these sorts of calls regularly as well. However, if you've already researched MTA Solicitors a bit before coming to our site - ...


Apprise Legal Services: We also noticed a firm called Assured Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning in the very nearby town of Redditch kept popping up during our research. On those we still found very positive comments: class="infoquote "Excellent fast and efficient service" "... We assum...


Aina Khan Law Ltd: Be aware that www.ainakhanlaw.co.uk is currently not in use. You confidently and quickly traced his hidden assets" "When I transferred my case to you from other lawyers, I had lost all hope of seeing my son again. But if everyone's saying it, how can you tell the firms ...


Taborns Legal Business: For example if you were seeking help with a tax matter, we may show you options of a regular high street solicitor, a direct access barrister, and a regular accountants office. should bring up the correct website on search engines. We don't always have a lot of informa...


R James Hutcheon Solicitors: Navigating can also get a little confusing if you're trying to research the firm yourself. For example, if you've been injured in a car accident resulting in whiplash that gave you pain for a couple of weeks - it's not as if one firm might get you 3,000 and another get...


Penn Chambers Solicitors: Also, in some of the searches we tested, the website of their parent company www.penngroup.co.uk showed up as the top result. Not all solicitors are qualified to actually represent their clients in court. On the subject of navigation though, please note that the official sit...


Frank Rogers Law Ltd: There is a Law Society website for each area. But having worked with law firms for over 20+ years now, we know that experience is far more of a factor in success with motor offences. Failing to give driver identity information, speeding, totting up (when you've accumulated...


OJ Solicitors Ltd: Oana is a mature, experienced solicitor, holding law degrees in both Romania and Scotland, with over ten years of practice."< div>. Again, it's a shame that The Scottish Law Society does not help with better information in this area. No win, no fee simply means that if the ...

Serious Law LLP: We've just spent a whole month trying to get a negative review removed under our name. This claim of a high reputation amongst their peers is also backed up by a good number of quotes on third party sites: class="infoquote "Serious Law are right up there with the...


5 Essex Court: But probably more so because Direct Access is unfortunately not as widely known as it should be considering how long it's been available. Google currently lists them 4.6 5 stars, but there are only five ratings and no actual comments next to each. There are many firms ...


Avery Walters Solicitors: firms posting 5 star reviews about themselves and companies posting 1 star reviews of their competitors. For example, a firm with five solicitors each with only a couple of years' experience may state on their front page 'over a decade of experience in X law!' . In our last...


AWH Solicitors: Every solicitor that handles Personal Injury for example should never take any money up front or even if the case loses (the infamous no win, no fee) . They can also be independently verified with each organisation. However with anyone able to make a flashy website and writ...


Hampson Hughes Solicitors: Plus we see some people calling them Hampson and Hughes too. AND from start to finish (which only took 4 months) HH kept me informed on a regular basis" "They kept me updated throughout the whole process and got my case solved really quickly"< div> There are dozens...


Lawcomm Solicitors: It's not as though there are some 200-year experienced solicitors sitting behind any of the desks. If you look up https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk organisation people 591051 lawcommercial-trading-limited?Solicitors=True" Lawcomm's< a> page you'll see a good mix of old ...

GloverPriest Solicitors: Whilst the individual names Glover and Priest may sound common enough, there is still room for errors. No, we're not exaggerating and no, we're not a fan when they do this. But still, it's an indication of a firm that puts communication and keeping people in the loop as a p...

33Legal Ltd: Just a few years ago there was a horrible trend of firms promising iPads to clients if they submitted a claim through them. Make sure to ask up front about both arrangements with any firm you contact. Beneath that we saw www.crashedtoday.co.uk and www.ukclaimline.co.uk both...
