A friend of mine is getting a divorce, and needs to find a solicitor in Manchester.
It is a horrible process for her to have to go through, and I want to help her as much as I can. She is already in an emotional state and doesn’t really know what to do next.
I am going to help her find a Manchester solicitor, because she has never had to do anything like this before.
I know it can be expensive, but I am hoping to find a solicitor that specialises in divorce. Maybe this will make the process as quick and cheap as possible.
I’m sure there are plenty of solicitors in Manchester, so I just need to help my friend find the right one. She needs to find one she is going to be comfortable talking to about sensitive and personal issues. She also needs one who can help her understand the divorce process easily.
Once a solicitor is involved, I am sure my friend will feel a little bit better about her divorce. She will feel like all the complicated stuff is being taken care of for her.
My friend and I are hoping that once a solicitor is involved, there will not be any major disputes in her divorce. She just wants to get it over and done with quickly. But at least if there are any disputes, she will be properly represented.

My mum has been nagging me for ages to write a will, and I have finally decided to get round to it.
It is one of those jobs we all put off, don’t we? At the end of the day, it is not something we really like thinking about.
I need to find a solicitor in London who can help me get this job done quickly and easily.
I know most of what I want to say in my will, but I need a London solicitor to make it all legal for me.
I have got children of my own now, so I know my mum is right to push me into making a will. It is important to make it clear what I would want to happen to them. I have not got any money to speak of, but I need to make sure what I do have would go to the right place.
I am sure it will not be a big job making a will with my solicitor in London, and I am happy to pay for it. It is essential that it is done right.
I know I will feel better once I have organised my will. It is definitely the responsible thing to do.

A friend of mine has been running his own business for a couple of years, but now it is expanding, I think he needs some legal help.
He has managed to build up a successful window-cleaning business, and I think he needs to speak to a solicitor in Cardiff because he is thinking about taking on a member of staff.
Up until now it has been a one-man operation, so paperwork has been fairly straightforward. If he takes on a member of staff, things will get more complicated.
My friend doesn’t know much about legal stuff, and is not particularly good at paperwork, so he needs a solicitor in Cardiff to draw up an employment contract if he is going to take anyone on.
He may have to ask his solicitor about insurance as well, if he is going to be responsible for a member of staff.
I never would have thought a window-cleaning venture could turn into such a successful business. It is such a simple idea. My friend has done really well.
I definitely think it is worth him paying a solicitor in Cardiff to make sure all the necessary legal documents are in place. It could save him a lot of stress and hassle in the long run. Hopefully he can find a solicitor that specialises in helping small businesses.

We’ve been putting it off for ages, but I know the time has come for my husband and I to make a will.
We need to find a solicitor in Newcastle who can help us with this process, and get it done once and for all.
Making a will is a horrible thing to have to think about, but I am sure if I find the right solicitor in Newcastle, they will make it as easy as possible. I may even be able to find a solicitor that specialises in this area.
Nobody wants to think about the possibility of themselves or their partner dying, me included, but I know making a will is the sensible and responsible thing to do.
We need to set out what will happen to any of our assets if one of us dies, but more importantly, we need to set out what will happen in the event of both of us dying.
The most important thing for us is setting out who would become the legal guardian of our children, and making sure any assets would be divided between them.
The more I think about it, the more I realise we should have done this years ago. Quick, find me a solicitor in Newcastle right now…

Why do people always want to be near the sea when they retire?
My parents are planning a move to Southampton, and I’m sure they aren’t the first people to make this kind of move at this stage in their lives.
They have already seen a couple of properties they like and now they are starting to look for solicitors in Southampton, to take it to the next stage.
They are new to the area, so they don’t know any solicitors in Southampton. They will possibly need to meet with a few before they choose one.
It is better to choose a solicitor you feel comfortable with. Moving house can be a stressful time as it is.
My parents need to find a solicitor in Southampton that can take care of any house purchase for them while they are not in the area.
They will possibly be able to keep track of any process over the phone or through the computer, as they will not be in a position to meet with their solicitor very often.
I am looking forward to my parents moving to Southampton. It will certainly be nice place to go on holiday. Maybe I’ll end up retiring there one day as well…

With six children, fourteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, my Gran certainly had a very busy life.
She sadly died recently, at the grand old age of 90, and due to her many children and grandchildren, she didn’t leave a lot of assets.
We still need to find a solicitor in Chester to help us sort out her ‘estate’, especially as there are so many people involved.
My Gran did write a will a very long time ago, but that was before some of the grandchildren and great-grandchildren were born.
We all get along very well, and there is no reason for us to argue, but it is still best to get a solicitor in Chester to help sort it all out.
The main thing is that her house will need to be sold. Profits from the house will go to her six children, so that should be reasonably straightforward. It is then just a case of dividing up personal belongings, such as photographs and family heirlooms. I don’t think she would have spoken about things like this in her will.
None of us have any idea how this sort of thing works, so we will be relying on finding a solicitor in Chester to sort it all out for us.

Young people often have a very romantic view of certain careers. They like the sound of being a solicitor, doctor, journalist, without really knowing what it entails.
Quite a few of my A-level students have said they are very interested in becoming solicitors, so I want them to find out a little bit more about the career. I need to paint a clearer picture for them, and I am trying to find a solicitor in Nottingham who can help.
I am sure the job of being a solicitor in Nottingham is a lot more involved and a lot more varied than my students think, so it would be good for them to see the whole picture.
Solicitors help people write their wills, buy a house, make a compensation claim, set up a new business and many more things. A lot of their work involves drawing up contracts and checking contracts and other legally binding documents.
I’m sure parts of their job are very exciting, and parts of their job just involve a lot of paperwork. I want a solicitor in Nottingham to talk to my students so they can make an informed decision about whether it is the career for them.
The more information we can give our young people, the better.

My husband has been working for someone and has not been paid.
We are going to have to find a solicitor in Oxford to sort the problem out for us.
He was working on a six-month contract when the man who commissioned him got behind with his payments. We are now under the impression he will not be paying up. He is saying he does not have the funds.
We are hoping a solicitor in Oxford will be able to help us get the money we are owed. Solicitors often specialise, so we are looking for someone who is an expert in this area.
My husband is owed quite a lot of money, so it is definitely worth pursuing, even if we have to pay fees to a solicitor.
It is hard to know how to choose the right solicitor in Oxford. It is not something I very often hear recommendations for, probably because most people I know don’t need to use a solicitor very often.
My husband isn’t confident talking to people he doesn’t know, so we need to find someone he finds it easy to communicate with. We might need to meet a few before we decide on the best solicitor for us.

My best friend is disappearing off around the world for a year, and I am so jealous.
She needs to find a solicitor in Leeds so she can hopefully rent out her house while she is gone.
I’m not sure how complicated it is to rent out your house while you are out of the country. Will my friend need to pay tax on the income from the house? What will she do if there are any problems?
A solicitor in Leeds should be able to answer all these questions and help my friend with all the paperwork.
Renting out a house involves organising legal documents, even when you are still living in the country. The lease agreement will need to be drawn up, with rent details and any restrictions on how many people can live there etc
My friend will also need to spell out how much notice she wants to give to end the agreement, for when she comes home. Hopefully a solicitor in Leeds will be able to sort all this out for her and hold all the paperwork while she is away.
Once her house is all organised, she just needs to pack her bags. I bet she can’t wait.

My brother thinks he has suffered an injustice at work, and needs to find a solicitor.
He has tried going through the usual channels within the company, but is not happy with the outcome.
There must be solicitors in Liverpool that deal with employment law. He just needs to consult one to find out where he stands.
My brother is reluctant to consult a solicitor in Liverpool. I think it scares him because it sounds so formal and serious. I think his perception of a solicitor is that it automatically means taking something to court, but it probably won’t come to that at all. He just really needs to start off by having a chat and finding out what his rights are.
He doesn’t know how to find a solicitor in Liverpool; it is not something he ever hears recommendations for. He will have to start ringing a few and telling them of his situation. I am sure there are plenty to choose from, it is just a case of finding the right one for him.
Even if my brother decides not to take the matter further, at least if he has spoken to a solicitor, he will feel like he has all the information.
