If you have not had to seek legal advice before, it can be difficult to choose the right legal practice or lawyer to help with your legal issue.
The Law Society's quality marks can help you find legal advice quickly and confidently. These accreditations award a quality mark to legal practices and individuals who meet the highest standards of technical expertise and client service in specific areas of law. All of our quality marks are voluntary.
When you see our quality mark logos, you'll know that the technical legal skills and client service standards have been rigorously and independently tested by the Law Society. Click on the name of the quality mark below to find out more about each of our accreditations.
