Why use a Solicitor?
Updated: Aug 2
Qualifications and training
It can take 6 years of training to become qualified as a solicitor. This means that our lawyers have the legal knowledge and expertise to find the best outcome for you. Our solicitors are constantly updating their training so that they are familiar with any changes in the law. Legal problems can be complex and if you proceed without legal advice, this can cost you a lot of time and expense and can cause further issues. It is useful to have an expert in the law who can answer your questions and guide you smoothly through the process.
For example, it is crucial to get the legal form of your will right, so that your Will is legally valid, and is not questioned in the future. Otherwise, if the Will is not correctly worded this may mean your family members do not get what you wanted, or the probate process will be much harder work for your executors.
