Guide to Finding a Solicitor


There was a time when a guide to finding a solicitor was virtually non-existent. In fact, it could prove to be quite a minefield to find a reputable one. We have all seen high profile media cases where solicitors have been less than squeaky clean in their dealings with clients.

Inevitably the public is suspicious as they need to rely on those who have expertise in something they often know little about. In addition many legal processes come at stressful times. Even those who have bought and sold houses can tell horror stories of the stress conveyancing can cause.

However, technology has come to the rescue and now it is easy to access a guide which will make finding a solicitor so much more convenient and transparent. Gone are the days where one might rely on word of mouth or simply choose a local firm of solicitors who had been present in the community for years. Clients now have access to a wealth of information that makes choosing a solicitor a much more straightforward process. However, word of mouth is still a powerful guide to finding a solicitor and BBE Law takes their customer service very seriously.

Solicitors now have their own websites which will guide you through the process of finding a suitable one to deal with your particular need. Many initial questions can be answered before you even have an initial consultation and every effort is often made to ensure the information is in clear English.
