Law Society launched a new campaign last year to highlight the importance of using a Solicitor.
The “Use a Professional. Use a Solicitor” campaign encourages people to tap into the expert knowledge of regulated and insured Law Society members, whether they are buying a house, going through a divorce or setting up a business. It serves as a reminder to the public of the dangers of using unregulated legal service providers.
The president of the Law Society, Mr Andrew Caplen explains that:
‘Our latest campaign reminds the public that highly qualified, professionally trained solicitors are the best people to speak to for legal advice’.
‘Using a solicitor gives you the assurance you are dealing with a professional who is properly regulated and insured.’
‘The growth of unregulated and do-it-yourself legal services means consumers are exposed to nonprofessional advice, which can be more of a hindrance than a help.’
The campaign focuses on six areas of law:
-Wills and probate
The law Society has a web page dedicated to the campaign which offer invaluable information on these areas of law and how solicitors can help.
