Access Legal exists to help individuals and their families with serious and complex legal problems in their hour of greatest need, often in the most tragic of circumstances. At times of adversity, the law may seem to be a confusing barrier rather than a source of help and assistance.  

We call our service ‘Access Legal’ because that's precisely what we aim to do - give you easy access to the law through friendly, approachable and knowledgeable experts who will give you the right advice and fight hard for you if needs be. We specialise so we can give the best advice available and work hard to do so in ways that help you access and understand your legal options. Through long experience we combine legal knowledge with hands on practical experience of the challenges our clients face after adversity as well as in their legal journeys to overcome that. 

Being part of Shoosmiths (Legal Week’s Law Firm of the Year 2015) means we have access to the considerable physical, intellectual resources and connections of a UK-wide commercial law firm whenever needed.

Access Legal’s experts are on your side – our lawyers are caring, fearless and treasure the values of openness and honesty.

We are proud of what we do at Access Legal because we know that effective advice and action can make a real difference to someone’s life. Talk to us for quality legal advice delivered on a personal basis by best-in-class lawyers who offer solutions in language that everyone can understand.
