Brearleys Solicitors in Batley, Birstall, Cleckheaton and Brighouse

Law firms that choose to specialise in a particular field are quite common. Individual solicitors somehow claiming 'specialism' in multiple areas of law, increasingly more so. However, quite uniquely, Brearleys brings both of those concepts together, stating:

"Every one of the solicitors and advisors that we employ are specialist (sic) in their own right be able to provide you with exactly the right advice at a competitive cost."

Certainly one benefit of using a larger firm is there are usually enough staff employed for there to be at least one person experienced and/or expert in your particular case type.

If you've read through some other law firm pages on this site, you'll already know that we're very keen on staff pages. These are pages on a website that state staff member names and specialities. Sometimes they state experience, qualifications, how long they've been a solicitor and more. We know that for many people, it helps to have a mental image of what a person looks like when dealing with them over the phone. For legal issues, often discussing personal matters - doubly so. However, staff profile pages can also give you an idea of how strongly a firm focuses on certain case types.

For example, when you see four staff members - Jane Leadbetter, Neilka Holman, Emma Clough and Philip Scott - staring back at you from the Child Law section, it can't help but give someone considering such difficult action a bit of comfort and encouragement. Some people may be happier talking to an older member of staff about certain things, and gender absolutely plays a role in many people's final decision about which firm/solicitor to use too. Hence the reason we like to see profile pages like these on law firm's websites.

Like most firms, Brearleys state national coverage. Obviously if you are looking for road accident personal injury help, then distance isn't usually a huge issue. However, many people prefer a more local presence for other case types such as divorce or property matters. Brearleys have offices in Batley, Birstall, Cleckheaton and Brighouse. Not a national spread of locations if you're wanting someone local - but some comfort can always be taken simply in the size of a firm when trying to estimate the range of skills, resources, experience, successes, and so on. - (e.g. it is rare for a new practice to open with four offices. they must surely have been reasonably successful to have grown to that point.)

Established locally in 1833, their current partners have apparently worked together for many years in West Yorkshire, providing legal services and helping clients throughout the area with business law, employment, family, matrimonial, personal injury and property related matters.

It is unusual to see a firm with four office locations near a large population centre such as Leeds, without actually having a central or 'head' office located in the heart of it. Whether this helps the firm stay grounded, demonstrates the firm's desire not to inflict costly parking charges on their clients, or is simply an indication of hardened Yorkshire-ness making sure that money is not wasted on higher rent un-necessarily - we don't know. However, none of the locations are out of the way enough to be considered too far from the population layout they clearly target.

One thing we have noticed, is that for four offices they certainly have far more website addresses than that. So, we thought we'd better give you the run down:

www.brearleyspersonalinjury.co.uk - one of theirs. looks like an attempt at a modern mobile phone design. (i.e. windows layout)
www.brearleyspersonallegalservices.co.uk - one of theirs too. when we looked, it didn't appear to be quite finished though.
www.brearleyscompanylegalservices.co.uk - another of theirs obviously aimed at businesses.
www.brearleysmediation.co.uk - one of theirs, focused on mediation but we actually preferred the information available on their main site.
www.brearleyswealth.co.uk - theirs. but again, much seems blank and no further information beyond what is already available on their main site. the same would be said for www.brearleysfamilylaw.co.uk
www.checkmycompensation.co.uk - is theirs, but whilst sparse, it does actually give scope for increasing awareness of this type of problem.
www.brearleylaw.com - does NOT belong to them as far as we can tell.
www.jaynebrearleyandco.co.uk - certainly does not appear to be anything to do with them either.

It is not unusual for companies in any industry to create specialist or mini-sites. Most of the time they are used in marketing campaigns - e.g. if they are trying to increase their business law department. Of them all though, we could only see any real extra benefit (beyond what already exists on the main site) - from the Check My Compensation information. It expounded on a legal issue that doesn't seem to be discussed much. Considering the amount of coverage things like PPI and bank mistakes/negligence get - this may be a future explosion of litigation.

If we were to detail any issues we found with the site (the main site that is), it would have to be the testimonial page. We're not overly keen on testimonial pages on company websites to begin with - but this one quotes reviews from back in 2013. We use the Legal Ombudsman's report a lot in the work we do, and if there is one important thing we've learned: law firms with good reputations can drop the quality of their service, and bad law firms can redeem themselves with a few simple staff changes. All that can happen in the space of a few months, let alone several years. The newer testimonials near the top of the page are undated, but few provide any extra insight into the firm beyond the usual "very happy" type sentiments.

For example: "You advertised home visits which were essential for us." is a very helpful review for people visiting the site. "My family use your Brighouse branch regularly ..." sounds like a ringing endorsement as well. However, now I'm quite curious as to what this particular family is up to that requires constant legal help?

General Notes: We haven't looked in depth at their recruitment program so are unaware of any job vacancies available. If you do want to build a career with Brearleys Solicitors, then it is best to visit their site and try to find the correct phone/email contact details set aside for such if they exist. (Emailing a CV to their reception looks lazy.) Due to the complexities of case funding and the constant government cuts, it is always best to ask about things such as Legal Aid up front. Lastly, each law firm should state a registration number with their respective Law Society and/or their SRA number. It's usually at the bottom of every page. - www.brearleyssolicitors.com
