Using a solicitor
There are several times in your life when you might need to use a solicitor, for example when buying a house, starting a business or getting a divorce. It can be daunting trying to find the right one for you and making sure everything goes smoothly. As the Solicitors Regulation Authority is an independent regulatory body, they cannot tell you which solicitor to use. However, they can give you a few tips to help you get the best from legal services.
The SRA recommend that you feel confident and well-informed, and that you are well-prepared before you start to instruct a solicitor or lawyer to make sure you get the best outcome.
Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) Guidance on Using a Solicitor
The SRA have recommended the following guidance when using a solicitor (source):
It is important to make sure you:
- Are clear with your solicitor, at every point, about what you want to happen and what they are going to do for you;
- Understand the cost implications of any instructions you give your solicitor, including any effect they may have on eligibility for legal aid, (your solicitor will tell you if they think you are eligible to use this), or
- If your legal costs are being covered by another organisation (such as a trade union), whether what the solicitor can do is limited by their agreement with that organisation
The SRA recommend that you take notes of all conversations you have with your solicitor or other employees at the firm, such as
- Who you spoke to;
- When you spoke to them;
- What was said; and
- Any future actions that were agreed, including deadlines
The SRA also recommend that you keep copies of all relevant paperwork, including emails, and read it through thoroughly—if you have trouble understanding it, get someone to help you; and send any import
ant documents to your solicitor by the most secure methods possible, such as recorded delivery, and check that they have been received (keep a record of receipt); you can request that your documents are returned to you in the same way.
Taking these steps should mean that you get the best outcome and service from your solicitor or firm. Should something go wrong, and you need to make a complaint later, you will be better equipped to get the best result.
