How we will assist you

Legal Assist provides this site and any others with the domain legalassist.co.uk, as part of an introductory service that aims to put you in touch with a specialist solicitor, legal executive or company that specialises in the product or service you are enquiring about to see if they can provide their services by processing your claim or legal matter. We will not charge you anything for doing this.
Solicitors & firms on our panel pay a financial contribution to our marketing costs in order for us to provide this service. Further details about our arrangement with panel firms are available on request. Legal Assist are not qualified lawyers and do not provide legal advice.
If we feel we cannot help you, we will let you know, and of course you are free to seek advice or services elsewhere immediately. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Any resulting contract that you enter into for legal services will be with one of our panel solicitors, not Legal Assist. Legal Assist therefore, do not accept any responsibility or related liability for any advice given to you or other work carried out on your behalf, by our panel solicitors, or any other solicitor that you chose to appoint. You are under no obligation to instruct one or any of our panel solicitors.
Solicitor firms and panel members that we work with pay for marketing fees for our introductory service. This does not affect the value of your claim in any way and it does not impact the level of service you receive with the panel member.
