    Use a professional. Use a solicitor.

    The Law Society is the independent professional body for solicitors in England and Wales. We support solicitors to deliver a high standard of service to their clients.

    Most of us will need expert legal help at some time in our lives. Solicitors are the experts when it comes to the law and how it affects you.

    Common legal issues

    Legal issues can be confusing, complex and leave you unsure of what you need to do and what could happen as a result of the decisions you make. Using a solicitor means they can guide you through any relevant legal processes, let you know what choices are available and answer any questions you have. Getting early advice from a solicitor means that you can benefit immediately from the support of a trained legal professional who will understand your circumstances and work to obtain the best possible outcome for you.

    If you are looking for some easy-to-understand guidance about a whole range of legal issues, our plain English guides to common legal issues will come in handy. They outline how a solicitor can help and the steps involved in getting advice, as well as explaining legal terms and processes.
