Solicitors ‘are the go-to experts’

The body that represents solicitors in England and Wales has launched a campaign urging consumers to use a solicitor for legal advice instead of unregulated providers.

The campaign – titled Use a professional. Use a solicitor. – which will run until early next year, encourages people to work with Law Society members, whether they are buying a house, going through a divorce or setting up a business.

Launching the campaign in September, Law Society president Andrew Caplen said: “Using a solicitor gives you the assurance you are dealing with a professional who is properly regulated and insured.

“The growth of unregulated and do-it-yourself legal services means consumers are exposed to non-professional advice, which can be more of a hindrance than a help.”

The campaign focuses on six areas of law:

  • conveyancing
  • personal injury
  • wills and probate
  • business law
  • family law
  • criminal law.

Mr Caplen added: “The campaign reinforces solicitors as the go-to experts when people are seeking legal advice on house purchases, will writing or establishing a new business.”
