Most of us, most of the time, bumble along in life. We may not always be as focused as we'd like but we're generally all heading in the right direction. Then, out of the blue, comes some horrible shock- illness, accident, you're a victim of a crime, there's a death or divorce to deal with, or an employer pulls a fast one on you.
You are plunged into a panic, cannot think straight, feeling shaken and stirred. Legal advice is required but where do you start? Asking friends for someone they recommend is a good starting point. Or searching for a reputable company that specialises in the area of law you require.
I've had cause to use a lawyer in employment law on more than one occasion when companies didn't behave as my colleagues and I would have hoped.
Beecham Peacock sound like a company I could turn to if I needed them (although hopefully I won't be requiring any legal advice again for a long time). They deal with legal issues covering employment, crime, family law and personal injuries.
Although I have not used them myself I am encouraged that they have a corporate social responsibility policy which has led to them supporting charities including Disability North, Mencap and Women’s Aid. Also impressive to me is that their " cab journeys are taken in hybrid environmentally friendly taxis."
