We have information on our website about finding legal help: Finding free or affordable legal help 

It is also worth checking your subscriptions, insurance policies and credit card agreements to see if these provide help with legal expenses.  

The Law Society has a ‘find a solicitor’ function as well as information on using a solicitor.  


Before deciding which solicitor to use, you may want to ask the following questions: 

  • What will the solicitor do for me 
  • How much will this solicitor cost compared to others 
  • What do I get for my money 
  • How often has the solicitor handled this type of work 
  • How long will it take for the legal work to be completed 
  • What can I do if something goes wrong, or I am not satisfied with the service. 

We have a list of local solicitors, please contact us if you would like a copy.
