  • I just been in to WH Smiths and seen a QS legal access point. I think it's all bit embarrassing. I stood looking at the cards listening to a woman discussing her affairs. I found out her name, her address, the issues she was facing, eg a franchise going bankrupt, I heard details on the franchise. It's really poor. I wanted to pull her to one side and tell her what I found out about her, and explained the confidential issues that this service is in breach of. Hopefully most will decide that it's quite a bad idea and if they really need a solicitor, look one up on the internet, or find someone who can recommend a firm. QS is just a brand, it doesn't mean those solicitors who are not part of it are inferior to those branded by QS. After all every law firm regulated by the law society.

  • In response to your comments I would like to say that I work at a QualitySolicitors firm and also stand at the WHSmith stand offering people legal advice and the people that I have talked to have actually been happy about the fact that we are there as we can clarify facts that people are unsure about. And as for the response about 'middle class' people I can ensure you that as part of the SRA everything that you say is given is the strictest confidence and so I can assure you your 'neighbours' would be unaware of our conversation. I would also like to point out the fact that when I am standing there people try and 'run' away from me as fast as they could as they think I am trying to sell them something well it is a FREE conversation helping the innocent and vunerable people
