FirstStop Legal Services

What does it do?

Taking legal advice can appear to be a daunting task, but rest assured that you will always find us friendly and approachable.

QualitySolicitors Truemans offer expertise and experience in all our practice areas.  Our team will advise you honestly and effectively throughout your case.  We deal with most private and business areas of law and provide a highly personalised service, managing your case from start to finish.

Should your case need to go to Court we will ensure that, wherever possible, you are represented in Court by the lawyer with conduct of your case.

Some lawyers tend to confuse clients with jargon and legalese.  Our lawyers make certain that all advice is clear and concise.

Our fees are very reasonable and our charging structure is transparent.  We make sure that you are updated regularly on costs so you can avoid any nasty shocks. On most private client services we offer a fixed fee service.
