You most often need a solicitor during a particularly challenging time, when you rely on them to help resolve difficult issues as quickly as possible and with the minimum impact to you or your business. In order to feel confident that your solicitor is giving the best legal assistance, you need to know and trust them.
The importance of building a relationship and trust.
Creating a good working relationship with your solicitor is the best way to ensure the most successful outcome for your case. When trust exists in your relationship, it’s easier for clients to feel comfortable sharing information with their solicitor. Being open and honest is essential to ensure they have all the facts with which to inform the best options going forward.
Once a valued relationship has been established, it’s also easier for a client to trust the advice of the solicitor. This may not be easy when your solicitor has to tell you something you may not want to hear, but if a good relationship exists and the advice is trusted, it’s easier to accept.
Knowing what your solicitor can do for you
Take time to understand the role of your solicitor by talking to them about what they will do in your case. It’s essential from the beginning to have good two-way communication and understanding how your solicitor works is a good starting point. Agree early on how to communicate with each other and set expectations around this.
Ensure you’ve found a solicitor with a good reputation
Another way to help you build trust in the solicitor you are working with is to find one with a good reputation. In a previous post, “Three tips to finding a trusted solicitor”, we discussed ways you can find a reputable solicitor with the expertise you need.
