The Mendeley Legal Resource Center is an independent directory of lawyers throughout the US and UK. The resource center aims to provide information about solicitors who deliver specialist legal advice in your jurisdiction and area of law.
It's important when looking for a solicitor that you find a lawyer or firm that specialise in the area of law that you need assistance with. If your case is seen as high value, solicitors, who might not be specialists in that area of law, may attempt to help you. This can mean that you don’t get the best advice and that your legal requirements are not fully met.
When looking for a solicitor you should do the following:
- Do your research by looking at the firm/s literature online. - Build a short list of firms and make initial contact with them. - Ask questions about their experience and any landmark cases they have worked on. - Understand their fee structure; this can differ massively between firms and save you money in the long run. - If necessary, go and meet the firm. The initial stages of instructing a firm are usually free of charge.
Remember, the firm who is closets to your home is not always the best firm for the job. You can instruct a firm anywhere in your jurisdiction with all communications being conducted over the telephone or via email.
You should also be careful not to instruct a claims farmer. Many areas of law in this day and age have companies who actively seek to farm clients and sell your claim on to the highest bidder. This means you have little or no choice of who your solicitor will be.
Each firm and/or attorney listed within the Mendeley legal directory is listed with a brief description of their services along with relevant contact information.
To find a firm, select your country from the tabs above. You will then be shown a list of legal disciplines within that jurisdiction. When you find the required discipline, select it to reveal the firms listed.
