The people at 1to1Legal have been working in the industry for over 20 years and have worked with hundreds of firms and thousands of solicitors. Here are links to our colleagues unbias comments on firms we know:

2 Harcourt Chambers: Coming back to the differences in setup mentioned before, a law chambers is not like a law firm of solicitors. Not least because they provide very little data on firms and a search function that is hard to find and harder to navigate. A chambers is more like an introd...


A City Law Firm: Plus with all the phishing scams still going on always make sure you're on the correct website and never discuss payment details via email. That's very different to a firm having a 10 or 15 year experienced lawyer on staff. This is something to watch out for though....


A.C.S.L. Solicitors: That's a big plus in our opinion and rarer than you might think. So you may look at this firm's claim of starting in 2009 as indicating much less experience. class="infoquote "ACSL Solicitors launched in 2009. We've also seen a negative review of a criminal law firm ...


Backhouse Solicitors Ltd: class="infoquote "Our experienced team offer expert help and advice to companies and individuals across Essex, London and surrounding areas, in all aspects of law."< div> We've long praised The Law Society of England & Wales for their user side provided data w...


Brian Barr Ltd: There is only the one office so a search for their name will usually bring up their site, links to regulatory bodies, company reviews, and so on. So how do you tell them apart? For example, the majority of compensation claim firms state they are 'specialists'. ...


Buchanan & Co Solicitors Ltd: So what are the independent forums saying? class="infoquote "Professional staff. However every firm we add to our network goes through various checks which we often write about, because much of the things we do can be helpful for any potential client in their search. ...


Calio Claims by Lindsays: But make sure you get fees absolutely clear at the outset and talk to more than one legal professional before deciding which firm to go with. It's just that the Calio Claims branding team focus solely on Personal Injury matters. For the new generations of potential clients l...


Cullimore Dutton Solicitors Ltd: class="infoquote "Being specialists in specific areas of legal work you can be confident that you are working with knowledgeable people"< div> Cullimore Dutton are unique in that they list the years of experience of each individual staff member. We've genuinel...


Drummond and Miller Solicitors: That's probably why in our poll a few years back, only 9% of people voted that they trusted prior client comments posted by the company on their site. Any concerns, ring your actual solicitor to check. Today's article however is on Drummond Miller. But the reason we're makin...


Eatons Solicitors Ltd: One thing to watch for when researching though is that Google can often return zero reviews for a firm if you miss out the name of the town an office is in. But it doesn't sound as grand put that way. Flicking through the https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk organisat...


EDC Lord Solicitors: A quick note on navigation. The comments and reviews seem mostly positive: class="infoquote "took the time to explain the entire process clearly and concisely" "exceptionally helpful and patient with us, there was a lot that we didn't understand" "about to u...


EMD Law Solicitors: Today's article covers EMD Law LLP which, from appearances, looks to fit that description quite nicely . Ones that provide at least a little insight into the firm's dealings with customers, like these snippets above. class="infoquote "At EMD Law we have a strong comm...


Eve Lake Conveyancing: This is hugely important to note because for property matters you absolutely need to make sure you are on the correct site and only discussing the sale with your firm. These are usually a lower cost option compared to a conveyancing solicitor. However, if you already...

Amy King Solicitor: There is no hard and fast rule. Solicitors no longer need to work for a brand local to them. Also, you could very well end up with a 1-year-qualified solicitor from a 200 year old law firm while there are plenty of highly experienced lawyers at brand new firms. If you've be...


Foster & Coleman Solicitors: It's common for solicitors to make huge claims about ancient founding dates such as 'established in 1881' or even older. There are several similarly named firms such as 'foster & foster' and 'foster law' that popped up while we were searching. The idea being that the older t...


Frei Solicitors Ltd: class="infoquote "We work with law firms in other jurisdictions, where we have close links and strong personal relationships, in order to achieve our clients’ objectives."< div> However this means the regular tips and rules which we advise people such as htt...


Girlings Personal Injury Claims Ltd: As mentioned there are two sites. When searching for information on Google these days you may need to enter a specific location such as 'girlings solicitors ashford' otherwise reviews and other local business details will not pop up. Big thumbs up. The word 'specialist' ...


Goldsmith Bowers Solicitors Ltd: Modern Systems. Sometimes over just a single official-looking email telling them the bank account details to pay their house deposit into have changed.. Making sure you are on the correct website and not tripping up when typing in domains is mostly important when it ...


Guardian Law Ltd: Most https: www.thesun.co.uk money 17881174 property-scam-fraud-our-house " target the clients of law firms that handle conveyancing< a> matters but you never know what they'll come up with next. This brings up an extra point about reviews - i.e. class="infoquote "...


Harrisons Thames Valley Solicitors LLP: The internet has brought so many advantages when it comes to choice for consumers. You are not walking into the actual office and talking with the staff. It provides a huge wealth of data to users on the firms and individuals registered with the organisation. Unfortuna...


HCR Law Solicitors: We're not satisfied unless we're making a real difference to peoples' lives"< div> That's a snippet from the front page of the HCR site. class="infoquote "Clients value our honesty, commercially focused advice and hard work."< div> To check up on any stat...


Heritage Park Family Law: class="infoquote "We know family law"< div> Luckily there are independent sources to check whether a firm has actual experienced, qualified staff. So when you see Heritage Park offering out of hours appointments - that is something helpful other firms may not ...


Horsley Holdings Ltd: 95% Cases Won. Their official site is at www.horsleylaw.co.uk but be aware that the .com version does not redirect you there. While many people will quickly jump online to share their thoughts about a restaurant or spa - they are not so eager to share how their criminal case...


Kee Solicitors Family Law: We have one niche firm on our network handling only life-changing injury claims and another that only represents whistleblowers. But the claims are not unique. The Kee one clearly says a solicitor will call you back. Their front page was a little more cluttered than we...


Large & Gibson Solicitors: class="infoquote "We are dedicated to making the process as hassle free as possible for our clients."< div> The obvious place to check out claims such as this on the firm's site are the review forums. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality legal advic...


LS Legal Solicitors: So always make sure you're on the correct site and speaking to someone you know at the firm. That's the difference to watch for. For example managing director Liliya Scott qualified in 2007, Jasmin Bugg in 2018, Lubov Galyarnyk in 2006, right up to Olena Lux who joined the ...


Lyons Law: It's common for companies in any industry to provide customer testimonials on their website. The most common complaint we hear is that they all look the same. So large firms stayed large and small firms struggled to push their way into the market without good old-fashioned ...


Mark Croft Motor Offence: class="infoquote "I recently obtained a discontinuance of a road traffic case on behalf of a certain Insurance Company, that led to a saving of in excess of £2.5 million in potential damages."< div> Mark Croft's site doesn't have a lot of extra pages. Whil...


McCarthy and Co Solicitors: At the moment Google seem to have changed their setup so that you cannot search for reviews on a firm in general - only on a specific office location. class="infoquote "Our conveyancing department combines legal excellence and amazing customer service to help ensure ...


MJV Law Solicitors: The last two though could mean a range of things but usually that they've added up all the years of experience of all the staff together. Make sure you're on the correct site and never discuss payments via email. . While seeing such a description is not rare amongst many ...


SG Murphy & Co Ltd: As we've pointed out in other articles, firms that are involved in buying and selling properties tend to have lower star ratings simply because hardly anyone thinks their sale is going fast enough and each side is always blaming the other. That doesn't seem to be the case he...


Nicholson Jones Sutton Solicitors Ltd: 'nicholson jones sutton solicitors macclesfield'. Probably around 90% of the articles on this site are about firm's who are not current advertisers or paying us anything. So always read the comments . However for this piece the two are going to be merged together delibera...


Oakwood Property Solicitors: However, if you've wandered through a dozen or more legal service websites today you'll have come across lots of phrases such as this one which is also from the Oakwood website: class="infoquote "Traditional law, modern ways."< div> Many firms will make similar ...


Sternberg Reed Solicitors: There are always websites to tell you the "10 best" of something or you'll have your own brand loyalty already. class="infoquote "The firm merged with David Charnley & Co in 2007, TNT Kelly Solicitors in 2009 and TNT Solicitors in 2011."< div> One thing to note ...


The Law Partnership Ltd: saying about The Law Partnership? class="infoquote "worked hard to get my sale through really quickly, despite the pressure" "worked very quickly and kept in touch with updates of both my house sale and purchase" "communication was fantastic - clear and timely"<...


UVS Law Ltd: Especially with everything going on at the moment. Be careful of such wording on other sites. Your immigration lawyer should discuss your options with you before making you decide whether to use their services.. However this can only be true if they have individual solicit...


Walker Foster Ltd: Aside from verifying a firm's experience and comments on them, there are often some things which we think sets one firm apart from another. For an example today we'll use the firm Walker Foster who describe themselves as: class="infoquote "... That's good. If...


Waterstone PS: They are all very positive. Common sense dictates there will not be a 200-year-old wise old lawyer running the place. Sometimes a holding page is shown, sometimes just a flat out error page. However in our poll a few years back only 8% of you said you https: consumer.ftc...


WH Law Ltd: That is not always an incorrect use of the word. you'll usually be able to pick up enough bits and pieces. The main thing to remember is that a lack of reviews is not a negative sign. That's good. If there is only one or two solicitors in the practice and they say they spec...


Wildcat Law Solicitors: For example thousands of people have handed their entire house deposit when buying a house straight into a fraudster's bank account. The official website we link to above is www.wildcatlaw.co.uk which is https secure for submitted your details in the contact form, but www....


Wilford Smith: class="infoquote "You can be confident that by instructing us, we will take care of all your legal matters throughout your lifetime, providing creative solutions and protecting your best interests."< div> The official website we link to above is www.wilfordsmith...


Wolf Law Ltd: For example the https: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk office 563096 wolf-law-solicitors-ltd" page for this firm< a> displays the usual contact details but also what languages are spoken, what areas of law they focus on, and the qualifying dates of any solicitors at the firm...


WYM Legal Solicitors: However, in this instance, CLC accreditation is not the only stamp of approval. But 'leading' is one of those words that doesn't really give you a specific metric you can measure against another firm. You will see a large number of negative reviews as well. That's becaus...

Thomas & Thomas Solicitors: We have often praised The Law Society of England & Wales for their excellent user resources . That's because hardly anyone is ever happy with how long it takes and there are always problems (most of which are outside the solicitor's control but still they get the blame). Th...


Law Solicitors: The worst currently target property matters due to the large sums involved. Most importantly it will tell you the qualification dates of any legal professionals within the practice. For example, with Law (aka All Law Ltd) it says solicitor Jeffrey Garland qualified 19...
