About the Direct Community Free Legal Service
The Law can be very complex and the outcome of a legal problem or dispute can never be guaranteed. It depends on many factors such as the facts, the parties, and precedents; perhaps one of the most important factors though is the level of skill of the person arguing the case.
An inexperienced person would be at a real disadvantage arguing a case against an expert in his field. It is for this reason that the best Solicitors can command high fees. Big Companies when fighting legal actions will invariably bring in the best Solicitors and do not mind paying high fees because they know their chances of success in the case are increased by the quality of their lawyer, and if there is a great deal at stake it is well worth the expense of employing the best.
Certain matters however do not necessarily require the best Legal advice and can easily be dealt with without instructing solicitors at all. The purpose of this site is to give practical assistance to people who would like to deal with simple straightforward matters themselves and to assist people who decide that they need a solicitor, to find the right solicitor for their particular case, at the right price depending on the level of complexity of the matter.
