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.

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

The information SLAB holds on firms has been provided by solicitor firms or organisations when they registered to carry out legal aid work and from a survey in June 2015. It is reliant upon them keeping us up-to-date on any changes.

Only basic information is provided for firms who haven't supplied us with details of the case types they handle or office accessibility details. Please be aware that if no local firm is listed when you search under a specific civil category, use all types of cases to find the largest number of solicitor firms closest to you who may undertake that kind of case. We are attempting to gather more information to improve the Solicitor Finder’s accuracy but this is dependent upon this being supplied by the profession.

If you are a member of the profession and your firm’s information is not up-to-date, please fill out this form 
to have it amended.

Information below the map gives notes and terms and conditions for using our solicitor finder.
