In today’s day and age, the internet has given us all more choice in terms of products, where to buy and also services and who to use.

With so much choice out there and being bombarded with advertisements online and on TV for more nationalised legal corporations what is it that makes utilising your local solicitor a better idea?

    1. Face to Face Meetings with Your Solicitor
    2. Dealing with everything digitally can feel somewhat impersonal and detached. Although we have the convenience of communicating via emails and texts, when you are dealing with personal times in your life having someone you can arrange a meeting with and speak to face-to-face can have a lot more value. Be it drawing up a will, or having been in an accident and looking for legal assistance; feeling that there is a human there to talk to can make all the difference in knowing that your case is being taken care of and handled by a person who cares.

      ** PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current situation we are currently offering visits by appointment only, no drop-ins. We are also offering zoom appointments with our team so people still have access to a lawyer ‘face-to-face’ without coming into the offices.**

      Here at Ward and Rider Coventry, we treat every client as an individual; providing a quality and personal service which supports individuals and couples across the Midlands through the different stages of their lives.

       

    3. Your Solicitor Knows the Area
    4. Local, practical knowledge will always win over an internet search. Having a solicitor local to you, in particular, in conveyancing cases, is valuable as they can give you more insight into costs you should be paying for surveys, new planning developments, which searches in particular are of use to you, and whether to expect any additional fees.

      Here at Ward & Rider, having been based in Coventry and servicing the Midlands over the last 65 years we have vast experience in delivering conveyancing services in the local area assisting people to move into their first or next home.

       

    5. Easier to Attend/Arrange Appointments
    6. If your legal case is likely to require several interactions with your solicitor, proof of identity or where time is of the essence, having a local solicitor can make all of the difference.

      Being able to walk into your solicitor’s offices in person to ask questions, address concerns or simply to drop off key documents for your case; all these elements, in particular to a conveyancing case can make all the difference to ensure that transactions go through in time.

      Having the peace of mind that a local firm such as Ward & Rider can be reached relatively quickly if needed can be a core reason why you choose to go local.  We have walk-in offices in the centre of Coventry on New Union Street, as well as at our Leamington office on Holly Walk in Regent House. As well as this we have offices across the Midlands including in Birmingham and Leicester which are appointment-only, bringing our legal services to you.

      ** PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current situation we are currently offering visits by appointment only, no drop-ins. We are also offering zoom appointments with our team so people still have access to a lawyer ‘face-to-face’ without coming into the offices.**

       

    7. In the end, it all comes down to…
    8. Can your local solicitor meet the requirements you have? Today, the functional need to instruct your most local solicitor is a lot lower with all the means of communication at our disposal. However the added benefits if you have quality local solicitors do outweigh national, larger legal services where you can’t put a face to the name.
