Got legal trouble? Any business or individual in need of a lawyer who is based in or around St Helens should consider who they pick very carefully.
There are a whole raft of things that you need to consider and some of these things will matter more to you than others but it is worth mentioning at this point that your experience may be vastly different depending on which law firm you go for.
If you are interested in regular face to face contact then you really do need to consider whether a large firm will give you what you need. On the other hand you may prefer to fire and forget and pass the case onto your solicitor and have them deal with it in it’s entirety.
Do you require regular updates? How will you receive them? These are just one thing to consider.
You also should pay a huge amount of attention to their overall success rate for cases. You may have the friendliest solicitor on the planet but they never win in court. Of course, it does depend upon your particular circumstances and what the case is but a court lawyer who can win cases is more desirable than a friendly lawyer who never wins.
Perhaps you have a sensitive matter such as family issues and would prefer a less bulldog approach and tactful human being to handle your case. These are difficult to assess yourself sometimes (not always) and previous customer satisfacton reviews to be found on the internet should always be read and assess first.
This could end up being a really long post but we want to give you the basics to think about first. Do your homework, check reviews, decide upon the type of solicitor you want or need and ensure that the level of attention and feedback suits your particular requirements before making the choice.
