When choosing a solicitor, you must research the different solicitors in your area before selecting the right one for you. You can do this through the Legal Complaints Service website. You can search through solicitors and their specialities on the site and see if they are covered under the regulatory body’s guidelines. However, if you want more personalized advice, then speak to a member of the Law Society or the Legal Complaints Service.
Once you have spoken to a solicitor and received legal advice, it is up to you to follow the legal direction given to you by your solicitor. If you have any concerns or questions about proceeding, you must ask your solicitor for clarification straight away.
If you do not ask, then you will not receive!
