A bit more information to help you

How does the process work?

We know that speaking to a solicitor can seem daunting, that’s why we at First4Lawyers offer a fresh approach to seeking legal advice – whether about personal or business law, or compensation following an accident. Your initial enquiry will be handled for free by one of our friendly, legally qualified advisors. They are there to get an understanding of your needs and will explain everything in a straightforward manner.

We will then advise on the best next steps for you, highlighting any costs that may be involved. Until you say you’re happy to move forward, there is no obligation. We want you to understand exactly what you are going to get before you have to commit.

Will my solicitor be local to me?

We believe in matching to expertise as opposed to post code, and whilst we try and find you the right solicitor in the right location we recognize this isn’t always possible.

Using First4lawyers you’ll be connected with the right specialist for your case, and with the help of modern technology and home visits we are confident you will get the right balance of service and convenience wherever you are.

How much will my case cost?

Like anything, there is a cost associated with getting the best quality law services. However, First4Lawyers offers a range of charging structures depending on the type of legal help required.

Most accident, personal injury and medical negligence claims will be dealt with on a No Win No Fee basis. All other personal, business, family and employment law is done on a private paying basis using the First4Lawyers price guarantee.
