When you encounter legal troubles, it will usually be in your best interests to seek the help of a reputable solicitor who specialises in your case. You will be looking for expertise, guidance and care when choosing your solicitor; it is a big decision to make, and you need a firm that will be the very best for the job. Some people may choose to turn to a larger firm due to a more visible presence, but in terms of experience, attention to detail and cost, this may not be the best choice. When choosing solicitors in London, try seeking out a smaller law firm.
Here at Van Eaton Solicitors in Streatham Hill, we do not have the layers of bureaucracy that larger firms have. As a small solicitor’s firm, we can pay extra attention to your case, providing a personal service for all our clients. Whether you need contentious probate solicitors, advice concerning a divorce, or you are embroiled in a construction dispute, our wide range of knowledge can help you out.
Costs are significantly cheaper with a small firm/sole practitioner, without a compromise on expertise or experience. It follows that a larger firm with a greater number of employees and swanky city offices, will pass the costs of that glamorous presence onto the client.
More Attention to Your Case
More one-on-one attention and meetings are likely with smaller firms. Larger firms will have a vast array of clients that they will need to divide their attention between. Small firms are more likely to offer complimentary consultations so you can meet your solicitor and discuss your case in more detail. This way, you can determine whether their services are suited to you, and there are no obligations. With more attention on your case, your solicitor can provide you with more of their time and expertise, with fewer distractions so that your case will always come first.
Here at Van Eaton Solicitors in London, we provide a one-off, no-obligation meeting to discuss your case in thorough detail to determine whether your case is worth pursuing. This can save you time and money before you decided to fully commit to a solicitor’s firm, putting you firmly in control. To find out more about the practice areas we cover, please visit us here.
Communication is Improved
When you consult a team of lawyers, communication can break down and leave you frustrated. Having one line of contact can ensure better confidentiality, and will lead to errors, misunderstandings, and time-wasting. When you become involved in legal proceedings, you need them to be solved as efficiently as possible. Communicating with one singular lawyer can keep matters as streamlined as possible for both you and your solicitor. It can also minimise errors and help solve disputes efficiently.
Larger firms may require you to speak to other office support staff rather than the lawyer in charge of your case. We understand the urgency and worry attached to dealing with all legal matters and will work tirelessly to find relevant evidence to help build your claim and get you the result you need.
Large law firms may highlight a list of areas that they cover in terms of law, and though this may appear impressive, it may not relate to your situation in the slightest. Smaller firms will have more concentrated areas of law that they focus on, providing you with a more specialised service that you can trust. Small firm solicitors handle these cases all the time, providing you with confidence and peace of mind that your case is being dealt with by a professional.
When it comes to legal representation, reputation matters. You need a solicitor that will understand the ins and outs of your case, decreasing your fears and keeping matters as streamlined as possible.
