Very few of us will go through life without at one time or another needing some legal advice and with few exceptions a local lawyer is best.
When buying a house for instance it helps if the solicitor representing you has a good knowledge of the area you are interested in as he or she may know something that is not immediately obvious and may not show up on the usual searches.
Property buying is probably the most likely time we get to know a solicitor but there are many other times when their services are needed. Personal injury, employment problems, probate and litigation along with criminal activity and divorce are all times we may need help.
In every area it is perfectly legal for an individual to represent themselves but laymen rarely have a thorough enough understanding of the law.
Indeed, once a lawyer is qualified and is articled to a firm they will most likely already be specialising in one particular arm of the law as it’s very difficult to keep abreast of all the changes.
For this reason there are different departments in all but the very smallest legal practices where typically a one-man operation in a rural part of the country will only handle conveyancing and possibly some probate.
Buying a property in Lancashire probably will involve some firm of solicitors Blackburn based and Acsols springs to mind.
Increasingly solicitors are offering options on the no win no fee principle and that is certainly a huge help to anyone not exactly cash rich.
A typical example may be a person with long years in a company feeling they have been unfairly sacked or pushed by other means.
In these sorts of situations the last problem an unemployed man or woman wants is the worry of legal fees so this is a better option as it’s only the solicitor risking their time and money.
Naturally the solicitor will not offer such a deal if they feel there is doubt about winning some compensation on behalf of the client.
