Throughout life, there are often times when we need the help of a solicitor. Whether you are dealing with the breakdown of a relationship, a dispute at work, the Probate process after a loved one has died, or you want to write a Will or buy a house, there are many situations when you might need to call upon the services of a legal professional.
However, if you have never used a solicitor before, you might not know which way to turn.
Furthermore, different solicitors specialise in different areas of the law. Some will deal exclusively with family law, some will deal exclusively in commercial law, and so on. So while you may have previously used a solicitor to buy a house, that solicitor will not be of any use if you are now thinking about making an employment claim, for example.
That can leave you in a difficult situation, as you will need to find the right solicitor for your particular set of circumstances.
So, if you are looking for a solicitor, what can you do? Well, there are a number of options open to you.
High street solicitors
You could try the traditional approach of heading to your nearest ‘high street solicitor’. Some high street solicitors do still exist, but it is not always as easy as popping into your local city, town or village and finding the right legal representation for you. After all, your town might only have a firm of probate lawyers, when what you really need is someone to help you with your divorce.
Find a solicitor online
That is why for most people, their first port of call is an online search. Typing ‘divorce solicitors near me’ (or whatever it may be) into your search engine is often a good place to start. Others might decide to use the Law Society find a solicitor tool, which allows you to search for law firms near you, or for particular solicitors.
But whichever route you choose, you will then have to sift through all of the results and find a firm that not only deals with your particular area of the law, but that charges an agreeable fee, and that is committed to delivering a good service. As such, finding the right law firm can take a lot of time and effort.
