To do this, you need a top solicitor fighting your case. Read on to discover some top advice on hiring a lawyer in Greater London.
Advice on hiring a lawyer in Greater London
If you take a look on the internet, you will see that you have a huge number of solicitors to choose from in London. It is vital to narrow down your search with care, which is why you should ask the following questions to determine whether your chosen solicitor is right for you:
- How much experience do you have in the industry? Have you handled cases similar to mine before? The first thing you need to do is establish how much experience the solicitor has in the industry. You want someone that has worked on many cases in the past and has done so successfully. You also want to be sure that they have handled cases similar to yours. For instance, if you have been involved in a motorbike accident, you want someone who specialises in road traffic accident claims.
- Can I take a look at some of your testimonials? If a solicitor is unwilling to provide you with testimonials, you need to ask yourself why. Could it be because he or she does not have a good reputation?
- What payment terms do you offer? It is always a good idea to go for a no-win no-fee* solicitor. This means that you only need to pay legal fees if the solicitor manages to secure compensation for you. This reduces the financial risk that can be associated with making a personal injury claim. It also leads to a much better service, as the solicitor’s performance impacts their finances.
- How do I get in touch with you? Last but not least, it is vital to choose someone that is easy to get in touch with so that you can receive regular updates on your case.
