Why a Local Family Law Firm Should Be Your First Choice

Family law in a small town

In the picturesque market town of Hungerford is a buzzing community where families grow, businesses thrive and relationships are formed. Amidst all this activity is the need for legal guidance, especially when it comes to relationships, property dealings and commercial matters. Whether you are buying or selling your home, setting up a new business or getting your will in order for your family, you need the help of a law firm to ensure you do so in a safe and secure manner. 

How to accelerate probate

Big Firm vs Small Firm

The majority of towns in the UK will have a mix of law firms, ranging from one-man bands through to thousands of staff located throughout the country. Depending on your needs, you can select what service you require. A big firm will have lawyers that cover all aspects of the law, whereas a small firm might specialise in looking after the more sedate things like wills and probate. As you can imagine, costs vary between the two, and you can find yourself being charged exorbitant amounts if you don’t choose your legal partner correctly and with forethought. 

Big law firms have extensive resources which enable them to offer a huge variety of services. With extra staff levels, they can handle complex cases that cover many different specialisms. With size comes cost, as the overheads are extensive, and with size comes a reputation that means they can charge what they like. With size also comes a lack of individualism and an impersonal approach to clients who are more of a number than a person, to be billed as much as allowed, to enable partners to earn as much as possible. 

Small Firms tend to be much more approachable and create more of a family feel to their operations where each client matters more. They can often be specialists in important areas for family law like settling probate or drawing up a will. When it comes to selling your home, you don’t want the added cost of a large law firm to add to the bill. You want a personal approach to see you through a stressful time in your life. Lower overheads are achievable because of lower staff numbers not requiring HR departments and large office spaces. 

A big thank you to the team at Marlborough Law who provided an excellent service when we sold our house at the end of last year. Their service was competitively priced and their efficient communication meant that the whole process was relatively stress free. I highly recommended them

When things go wrong in life we are here for you

You’ve recently lost a loved one, and amidst the grief, you’re tasked with navigating the legalities of probate and estate administration. Alternatively, you’re a young couple excitedly planning your future together, seeking guidance on drafting a will or securing your first home through conveyancing. Or perhaps, you’re a concerned individual contemplating the importance of a Lasting Power of Attorney to safeguard your interests in unforeseen circumstances.

In these moments, the choice of legal representation is crucial.

  • Personal Approach

  • A friendly face you can trust
