Information for providers About us

Solicitor Finder

Find information on your nearest solicitor who offers help through legal aid, or other legal advice providers funded by SLAB. Enter a town or postcode, or click on the map. For civil matters you can also search by the type of case.

Search tips:

  • When the list of results appears, click on the name of the firm or on a number on the map to read more
  • Move on to the next 10 firms by clicking on next page at the bottom of the listing, just under the scroll bar
  • Get travel directions by entering your postcode in the From box and clicking Get Route
  • If you are searching for a civil case, please be aware that the solicitor finder information is based on a survey, and not all firms responded. If no local firm is listed when you search under the civil category, use all types of case to find the largest number of solicitor firms closest to you.
  • Some firms who are registered to carry out legal aid work have provided us with accessibility information about their office. If applicable, you can find this information in the Accessibility tab.

Please note that although a firm is registered for legal aid work, they may not be taking on new clients.

    Please note that although a firm is registered for legal aid work, they may not be taking on new clients.

    SLAB provides information on firms registered to provide legal aid services, including through the solicitor finder for the purposes of public information. Every reasonable care is taken to avoid errors and omissions. However, we will not accept responsibility for any errors and/or omissions that may occur, save for correcting the error, or making good the omission, as soon as is reasonable.

    Information on firms has been provided by the solicitors' firms or organisations that are contained in the list. An entry in this list, therefore, must not be taken as implying any recommendation or endorsement by us of any kind in respect of any of the solicitors' firms contained therein.

    The solicitor finder allows you to enter a postcode or place name to view the nearest legal aid providers as icons on a map. The nearest service is calculated using advanced mathematical techniques through a third party, and we take no responsibility for any errors in how the nearest service is determined or shown.

    The accuracy of the advice provided by all firms mentioned on these pages or on other sites to which these pages are linked, is the responsibility of the particular organisation, company or individual and no responsibility is accepted by us for inaccurate or misleading advice provided by such companies, organisations or individuals.
