“You’re free” – I don’t trust you and I don’t think you’re any good!

The stereotypes about solicitors being just in the job for the money thankfully are not as rife as they once were. However, they still exist and still cause some prospective clients concern when choosing a solicitor. Little narrative is given to the sacrifices and dedication made by those striving for professionalism and trying to shape the perfect client journey. Similarly though, are the concerns from clients about SHU Law offering advice and representation for free.

Our clients simply have to pay for third party expenses such as court fees and they get the benefit of the expertise of our practising solicitors at no charge. Each of our solicitors have considerable experience working in their chosen area of law but the fact that the advice is “free” causes clients to be suspicious. We accept the fact that we don’t charge for the legal work does sound too good to be true, (it isn’t) we are very good at what we do. It simply means we are committed to teaching the next generation of lawyers whilst striving for access to justice. We recognise that not everyone can afford legal advice and not everyone knows how to find someone who can help them. We do not make any sacrifices in respect of the level of service that our clients receive or the quality of the advice that they are given.

The main thing when selecting a solicitor is that you trust the person who is acting for you. You also need to ensure that you identify exactly which area of law you need help with to help with your selection. You might not know and you might need to speak to several lawyers to determine this and that’s not unusual. The point is that it isn’t always about the price. If you’re confident you have picked someone who can do the job and who you can work with, then you have a better chance of achieving the outcome that you want.

If you want to speak with a member of the SHU Law team because you think that we can help or you need help identifying exactly which area of law your matter relates to, then give us a call on 0114225891 or 0114226666. You can also email us at enquiries@shulaw.co.uk.
