Is the solicitor suitable for my individual needs?
Solicitors have specialisms. For example, a solicitor may have particular expertise in family law, personal injury, conveyancing, commercial or wills and probate. When picking a solicitor, bear it in mind that he or she is unlikely to be an expert in all areas - you want to find the best person for your particular case.
If your case is extremely complex, then is he/she the best person to provide specialist legal advice?
Perhaps English isn’t your first language. In this case, you might need a solicitor who you can converse with in your native tongue. This can be extremely important to ensure you can provide all the information you need to your legal professional, as well as making sure you fully understand each step of the process.
For anyone who might use mobility aids such as a wheelchair or walking frame, does the solicitor in question have good disability access to their premises?
