A bit more information to help you
Will my details be kept confidential?
Yes, any information you provide us with will be kept confidential. The only people who will have access to any of the details you give us are our solicitors, all of whom are pre-screened so we can be sure they will treat your case with honesty and integrity.
Is there a fee when I first seek advice?
When you get in contact, either by calling us or requesting a callback at the top of the screen, we will ensure you speak to one of our legally qualified assistants for free. They will pinpoint your legal issue and review precisely how we can help and what you need to get the resolution you want. There is no initial charge, no obligation and no risk involved.
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 recognise 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.
