Whether you’re the accused or the victim of a crime, you’re going to want solicitors who provide the best legal defence available. We understand how important it is that you’re represented by experts with proven experience.
As a result, we’ve put together a short guide on what to look for in a solicitor to help you get the best outcome possible for your case.
Communication With Your Solicitors
Solicitors undergo a long and technically extensive education to achieve their prestigious position. As a result, their communication should be extremely thorough and transparent. They should explain any jargon and ensure that you understand exactly what the service they are providing you entails.
At Blackfriars Law, we recommend you talk comprehensively about every aspect of your case with your lawyers. This way, you can ensure that no stone is left unturned and limit any confusion around the steps ahead.
The response and handling of all communication should be prompt, empathetic, knowledgeable and expansive. Your solicitor’s communication skills will convey their competence and knowledge within their field.
If you can identify these positive features within your chosen representative, you can be confident they will provide you with an excellent legal defence.
Qualifications & Accreditations
It’s important to verify your solicitors’ qualifications to ensure they have achieved the appropriate certification to represent your case. Not only this, but the sign of a great lawyer is the awards that they have achieved.
Whether it’s convictions or exonerations, it is likely your solicitor will be nominated for awards to reflect the great work they have done. For example, at Blackfriars Law our head solicitor has been awarded by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
This is a great quality to look out for when hiring a lawyer because it represents dedication and a high quality service.
Solicitor’s Case History
A fantastic way to identify a reliable solicitor is to look at their case history. A reputable lawyer will likely have many cases under their belt and will want to showcase them. As a result, evidence of these should be easy to find.
Often they are highlighted on their website. However, in some cases you can find them via the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s search function.
If you cannot find any successful cases, then this could be an indication of inexperience or poor case history.
