Unlock Legal Advice


Review sites don’t work for finding the right solicitor ... but Unlock The Law does

Welcome to Unlock The Law.

The site was created by us, Stephen Moore and Alasdair Thomson, both solicitors in our previous lives before we got caught up in the digital revolution.

We’ve since merged our legal knowledge with the online world to help you find the right solicitor for you and your legal problem.

Really? Yes, really.

Because we understand how the legal industry works, we also know who you should work with. Call it insider knowledge, or just years of hard work, either way - we’ve done our homework so you don’t have to.

We’ve established relationships with firms across the UK who are not only experts in their field but who also deliver on all aspects of customer service. When it comes to legal issues, you can’t have one without the other.

These contacts have become our Trusted Partners and that’s why they’re featured on UTL. We’ve hand picked firms that we know to be of the highest standard so you can rest assured that your legal problem will be handled effectively and efficiently - and by the right people.

Making sense of the minefield (and the marketing speak)

Most people are likely to need a solicitor at least once in their life time and with an endless number of firms out there, knowing who to choose can be a daunting task.

That’s where UTL comes in. No matter what your legal issue or where in the UK you’re based, we’ll put you in contact with the legal professionals that you want to be dealing with. 

As we carefully select the firms that you see here on the site, you can avoid the frustration and confusion of dealing with customer reviews and pages of search engine results.

We set the bar high by looking closely at a firms credentials, answering questions such as:

  • are they respected and established experts in their field?
  • can they demonstrate a high volume of recent successful cases?
  • are they accredited by relevant organisations and/or do they hold memberships for applicable associations?
  • what do their client testimonials reveal?
  • have they won industry awards?

So how does it work?

Whether it be making a personal injury claim, dealing with family or employment law matters, in every scenario, instructing the right legal professional is absolutely vital.

By selecting your region and the nature of your legal problem on our solicitor info page you’ll be able to see firms in your area that can assist with your legal issue. Based on the information we provide you with, you’ll then be able to make an informed decision on the right solicitor for you.

It's important to us that we're open and honest about how the site works. Some, but not all, of the firms you see have paid to be on the site however that by no means suggests we that publish information about just anyone. We still have to be satisfied that they without question meet our standards, which are after all what sets UTL apart.
