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:

Simper Law Ltd: Which makes it far more believable that a self-proclaimed "small firm" can have a decent level of expertise and experience in all of them. But it goes without saying that you can end up with a 1-year-qualified, completely inexperienced solicitor from a 200-year-old law fir...


Reynolds Macdonald Solicitors: The age of the firm's brand name has absolutely no bearing on whether the actual solicitor assigned to your case has any experience at all. A quick note on navigation as the firm branding is mainly 'Reynolds Macdonald Solicitors' but the web address and logo follow...


ULA Solicitors Ltd: It states Julian Groombridge qualified as a solicitor in 1998, Mohammed Ullah in 2004, Ines Azreyek-Diab in 2013, and others. ULA Solicitors https: www.ulasolicitors.com news-and-cases" showcase several such case studies< a> on their site if that also helps give you a sen...


Taylor Price Solicitors: But that's exactly what happens all too frequently with lawyers. (No, really. We've seen that more times than should be expected.) Certainly there is a lot of praise and accompanying acronyms being thrown around their staff too. Continuing our batch of reviews of high...


Michael Leighton Jones: It's a good idea to read comments when it comes to legal service providers as well rather than just checking star ratings. There is a firm call 'MLJ Legal Ltd' based in Hull, but at the moment searches including MLJ acronyms also brought up the michaelleightonjones webs...

Milners Solicitors: They have lawyers on staff that joined the industry during all of the last three decades - such as Simon Bass who qualified as a solicitor in 1993, Victoria Barraclough in 2008, right up to Lazuna Ullah in 2019. So how do the independent forums look? class="infoquote...


KRS Estate Planning Ltd: where the majority are all like this and very positive . One last quote from the firm's site that is a good point to remember: class="infoquote "Choosing who to appoint is an important decision and best made by yourself and not left to the Courts."< div>. Only ju...


Branch Austin LLP: The main reason we dislike such claims is that typically a firm claiming to have hundreds of years history are doing so because they have nothing much else to boast about. But we've seen several people complain about a solicitor for not handling their particular type of case...


Trojan Solicitors Ltd: As mentioned before though, whilst the firm is 'new' ( https: find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk company 11417981" having gone Limited in 2018< a>) we take that as a potentially positive attribute . That always bothers us and we think it's far too com...


CEL Solicitors: The firm has https: celsolicitors.co.uk case-studies " a dedicated page< a> showcasing a range of various case type examples. Many of which may not be the type of thing the regular consumer might have noticed when going through it. We've seen someone leave a negative revi...


Fulton's Solicitors & Estate Agents: The full branding of this firm is Fulton's Solicitors & Estate Agents with the official website being www.fultons-scotland.co.uk which we link to above. Despite not being overly 'nationalised' about most things, this is something we do feel a little frustrated at. Many com...


HooperHyde: But others may state something like 'over ten years of experience within the firm' - which could mean five staff members with just two years experience each. If you https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk person 164931 catherine-louise-hyde" check the page for< a> Catherine ...


Antony Hodari Solicitors: We never know what fraudsters will come up with next though so just keep aware of the sites you're on and never discuss payments via email. class="infoquote "Founded in Manchester in 1984, we have over 35 years experience of helping the public with their legal claims ...

Fair Result Ltd: class="infoquote "With an accumulation of over 70 years experience in commercial negotiation finance and law, we have totally unique offering."< div> There are two not-exactly-small claims in that snippet from the opening section of the Fair Result Ltd website. ye...


Dylan Nair Solicitors Ltd: As you can see from the snippets above, they're largely quite positive . But again if not available on a firm's site, it is often listed in the law society database. class="infoquote "We take the time to get to know our clients, work in partnership with them and are ...


Mckie Legal: But when it comes to solicitors, no reviews should not be taken as a negative sign. Usually with just a single email too, which is disturbingly easy . class="infoquote "Mckie Legal is a Trading Name of Connectmetoalawyer Limited"< div> That's useful because even ...

Hawkridge & Company: Very often a bunch of the negative reviews will be from the client of the other party. As already pointed out in the last paragraph, the firm seems to be referred to quite interchangably online as both Hawk Law and Hawkridge & Company. The official website we link to above i...


Pacific Law: . Pacific Law is very new addition to our database of law firms and they are a very new firm as well. As we said, this is a new firm. Never discuss bank details or payments via email. This is an area of law where we do think a specialist firm can be of benefit, the same as ...

DV Solicitors: We try to offer varied legal service options across a wide range of case types. So it's an unusual but good sign. You may get a forty year experienced solicitor from a law firm brand that started up yesterday. But those are all very positive too . Not every case requir...
