Relying on ‘off the street’ walk-ins for PI and conveyancing is not a business model built for success and the loss of a dozen fee earners demonstrates this. None of the gimmicks on offer make up for the fact that despite being located (on the whole) in deprived areas in the north of england, there is no legal aid on offer and no pro bono case work is done. Visitors are simply ushered along to the nearest CAB. At Forster Dean you have access to advice on claimant PI and residential conveyancing only. End of.

Service and quality should speak for itself. Not very becoming of a top 200 firm, more like the gimmicky marketing tricks of a cheap bakery.
