KTP Solicitors based in Pontypridd & Bridgend, Wales

Usually, the initials in the firm stand for the partner's names, the founder's names, or something to do with the location. If you flick through the K-T-P website, the origin of the name doesn't seem to be mentioned. But, what's in a name? KTP don't even rely on a fixed location, running "mobile offices" that offer free legal advice on a wide variety of legal topics. These are drop in centres set up in various areas on various days of the week:

Monday - Dunraven Street, Tonypandy
Tuesday - Hannah Street, Porth
Wednesday - Market Street, Pontypridd
Thursday - Co-op Car Park, Treorchy
Friday - Market Street, Porth

From what we gather, these are usually open from 9am until around 4pm. Unlike their usual fixed location services - advice given is free and can be on anything such as criminal matters, neighbour disputes, personal injury, divorce, consumer problems, wills, probate and so on. Obviously this is just advice. They are not offering to run the case for free should you decide to engage them.

KTP Solicitors

For cases they offer the usual no win, no fee for compensation claims. That simply means that you will not have to pay anything up front, and should the case lose you will still have nothing to pay. This does not mean no fees at all. Depending on the case type, they may keep some of your compensation as payment if they cannot recoup their costs from the third party being litigated against. This is typical practice though and they should give you a detailed run down of any potential costs to you. For other case types, they do their best to offer fixed prices. That means no matter what happens during the case - the cost to you will not go up or down.

Their fixed offices are based at Pontypridd and Bridgend to cover cases around Cardiff, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Caerphilly, plus the rest of South Wales and the Vale of Glamorgan. They state that all the firm's partners and most of their staff grew up in the local areas such as Pontypridd and Rhondda.

As mentioned, they cover personal injury, conveyancing, leasehold, mediation, power of attorney, tax planning, wills, probate, family law, compensation claims and family law. They also state a special interest in helping the elderly. This is an increasing trend amongst solicitors to indicate an understanding and empathy towards clients who may require extra help, longer discussions, assistance and more. That's not to say that firms who don't state a speciality in elderly clients are not capable of having the same understanding.

Like most firms, KTPSolicitors state that they try to be more than the expected "high street law firm". They try to do this by offering the fixed fees and avoiding hourly rate charges that, in all honesty, scare the pants of everyone considering legal help. They also try to avoid court where possible, resorting to mediation - especially in family law cases. This doesn't just keep costs down, but also stress and timescale. Despite Legal Aid availability shrinking year on year, this firm still tries to get you that funding where possible. Historically, they state that their criminal law department is "one of the oldest and most respected in the area", including their motoring law department.

As for their staff. As we always like to see - they have a staff page where you can read up on the people you will be working with on your case.

Paul Hinton is their Head of Criminal Defence Law and a Personal Injury Specialist. He's been with KTP Solicitors for nearly 30 years. He is a member of the Miskin Court and Police Station Duty Solicitor Schemes, possessing a wide range of experience defending individuals facing criminal proceedings. On the personal injury side, he deals with road traffic claims, workplace claims and public liability claims such as trips and falls. Despite becoming a partner way back in 1992, he still attends home and hospital visits as well as out of hours appointments where needed.

The Head of Residential Property, Wills and Estates is Chris Aubrey who came to KTP from after becoming a partner in both his previous law firms. He claims 35 years of experience in property and estate related legal issues. He to is not averse to home/hospital visits and out of hours appointments.

As the Head of Family and Childcare and Mediation, Jeffrey Kitchen is a native of Pontypridd who joined the firm in 1987 and went on to become a Partner in 1993. Beyond the family law side of things, he also deals with civil litigation, landlord and tenant issues. He is an Accredited Family Mediator, helping clients talk face to face with those involved in the case rather than racking up the legal bills with only the lawyers speaking back and forth.

Back to the name, we did spot a separate trading name - South Wales Marketing Ltd. A lot of solicitors do this, for many reasons. We've never seen a negative reason so far. There is also a KTP LegalPlus loyalty card system in operation. Rather than a free coffee the next time you visit, though, they promise a 10% discount off legal services for those enrolled.

There was not a whole lot of news coverage of this firm to get background on. The only reference we could find was a local news website mentioning that the firm was sponsoring a local run to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation. There was another, more controversial story regarding the firm defending a killer. But that was back in 2002, and as you well know from TV - criminal defence lawyers always do what they can to defend their client. So judging them on that would be quite unfair.

As for internet navigation - the official site is the .com version. The www.ktpsolicitors.co.uk variant just seems to jam things up, and www.ktpsolicitors.net (which we sometimes see used for email addresses with the firm) has no actual website. Therefore, we strongly suggest bookmarking the correct site once you're sure you're on it to avoid any mistakes getting back later.

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 KTP 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.ktpsolicitors.com
