    Choosing a legal representative can be difficult and it is not always clear who can offer you the best representation.

    There are a lot of issues to consider and cost is just one of them. With these tips for finding a solicitor you have the best chance of choosing someone who will properly represent you and give you the best possible chance of a positive outcome.

    When choosing a representative you should not be afraid of shopping around and checking the feedback that is available via a quick check with your regular search engine.

    With social media, feedback forums and online customer reviews it is now a lot easier to find out people’s opinions and getting an idea of what people think of their services.

    Remember to look at a range of sites and check the context of any reviews (look for ones that are balanced and written by genuine clients).

    Experience is crucial

    Experience is an important factor when choosing a solicitor. You want someone who has handled your type of claim before and has had more than their fair share of positive outcomes.

    They should also make clear whether they will be handling a case personally and offer information about the other people involved in the process.

    What are your chances?

    It is also important that a solicitor is clear to you about the chances of getting a positive result and if so what level of compensation you can expect.

    A solicitor should not guarantee a positive verdict and ought to be able to guide you through the process, detailing the right information to have to hand and what to do in order to give you the best possible chance of getting compensation.

    The costs involved

    A solicitor ought to clearly indicate what their fees cost. It is worth asking whether or not they offer representation on a “no win no fee” basis as some firms may offer this without necessarily advertising it.

    They should also clearly show what you are paying for and be able to justify why they charge what they do.
