Contact Law - how we help you find a solicitor


If you have a legal dispute or otherwise require legal advice or assistance you will likely be looking to engage a solicitor.

A solicitor can examine the circumstances of your individual situation and, applying their legal knowledge and experience, determine how the law would apply to your situation to ensure that your legal position is protected and an outcome in your best interests is achieved.

Finding a specialist

This is where we come in. It is important to find a solicitor who is reputable, recommended and experienced in the particular area of law. There are several aspects which you may wish to consider when selecting a suitable firm for your legal matter.

It is important that the solicitor is a specialist in the particular area of law. Not only will this ensure the best possible legal service and outcome, but it will also ensure that you receive the advice in a timely, cost effective way.

Having a solicitor directory of more than 5,000 solicitors means we are able to put our clients through to solicitors with a wide range of legal expertise, including (but not limited to):

  • Business law and solutions
  • Immigration/emigration
  • Conveyancing
  • Employment law
  • Personal injury
  • Commercial litigation
  • Mediation
  • Insolvency
  • Family law
  • Wills and probate
  • Intellectual property

One way of assuring that your solicitor is specialised in the area of law is to use a solicitor who is accredited under a Law Society or Solicitors Regulation Authority accreditation scheme. Accreditation schemes exist in a broad range of legal areas, such as:

  • Family law
  • Planning law
  • Insolvency law

Finding an affordable solicitor

It is important to ensure that you discuss with a solicitor the estimated costs of the legal assistance you require. The fees charged by solicitors will vary depending on various factors, including the experience and knowledge of the solicitor and the type and complexity of your case.

On top of fees charged your legal bill may also include disbursements, which are bills paid by the solicitor to third parties in the carriage of your case, such as:

  • Court fees
  • Expert’s fees

You need to discuss with your solicitor whether costs are redeemable against the other party in the event of a successful outcome. You also need to consider whether it is possible that you may have to pay the other party’s costs if you are unsuccessful. You should also discuss funding options, such as:

  • Legal aid
  • Legal expenses insurance support
  • Deferred payment
  • The availability of conditional fee arrangements (no win, no fee)

We understand that finding a solicitor can often be a time-consuming and overwhelming process. By contacting us, we can save you time and often money by putting you directly through to a solicitor firm that matches your requirements.

It is advisable that you gain advice from a solicitor from the beginning of any legal problem and by using a highly qualified solicitor to handle you case it will improve your chances of obtaining a favourable outcome as well as giving you peace of mind. Our services are free of charge, so contact us whatever your legal issue may be.
