Yes, we can discuss your requirement with you over the telephone and through our online contact form. Although we do not offer legal advice, we refer you to specialist solicitors and advisors who can assist you with how to pursue your queries.
Q) Do I pay Finest Law for any referral fees?
If you contact us directly, you do not pay us a referral fee for each solicitor that you contact. We obtain our fees from the solicitors. The solicitor pays us a one time fixed lifetime referral fee that is derived from their legal and marketing costs as an agreed contract. So legal professionals pay agreed fixed marketing costs to advertise their services on our website or other media.

These fall into the following groups: Criminal Injuries; Employment Matters; Financial Products and Services; Housing Disrepair; Specified Benefits and Personal Injury. We do not offer these services at present, neither do we make referrals for these services.
We recommend you contact personal injury specialists to assist you, or just contact a solicitor independently.

Q) What legal professionals do you work with?
We work with a range of professionals, such as barristers, mediators, and legal advisors who specialise within the areas of law that we operate in. Sometimes a non-legal expert is more suitable for your case and this could save you money. When you complete the online contact form, one of our consultants will advise you accordingly.
Q) Once a solicitor contacts me, am I committed to the solicitor?
This depends on what you agreed with the solicitor. The solicitor will discuss a client retainer letter / letter of engagement which will include an outline of the costs and what your commitment will be about. The decision to instruct the solicitor is yours.
Q) Do I pay for the initial assessment of my case?
The solicitor or legal professional you choose will discuss the fee arrangement with you for the initial assessment of your case. Your enquiry may well be solved during the initial assessment. There is usually a written feedback to you and the solicitor or legal professional may charge a fee for this depending on what you require.
