OJ Solicitors Ltd English & Romanian Solicitors in Glasgow: Review

If you've used our site before to find legal help, then you'll already be aware that we do not cram every single law firm we can find into our lists. In any given area we may only recommend 3-4 local law firms for your case type. However we do try to make sure you have varied options in the type of legal services available.

For example we always ensure a good selection of solicitors, barristers, debt collection agents, accountants, paralegals and more because your particular case may be best served by one rather than the other. It is certainly not the case that the standard high street law firm is the best option in every scenario. So what reasons did we have for adding OJ Solicitors to our list of recommended firms?

"Both the Director of the firm, Oana Petre, and her Associate, Ioan Oltean are experienced solicitors, law graduates in both Romania and Scotland, fluent in English and in Romanian, whilst Oana is also fluent in Italian."

Whilst any firm can hire a translator, this is an extra cost that will not always be shouldered by the firm as it might be in injury claim matters. Plus having the actual solicitor able to converse with you in your native language has immeasurable benefits in ensuring clear understanding as well as being considerably time saving.

On top of that, both solicitors at the firm are qualified to represent you internationally for cases here or in Romania. The fact they've even translated their website into those languages is also a plus. We're amazed at the number of immigration firms on the web that only have an English version of their website.

"At OJ Solicitors, we are here to represent mainly, but not exclusively, clients presenting personal injury claims"


Because this is stated clearly right at the top of their front page, we would therefore be inclined to push them more for their self-stated specialist area than others. This is something we've said repeatedly elsewhere. For example, if a firm does not actually state Medical Negligence as a case type they handle and have at least a few paragraphs talking about it - it would be best to move on to the next firm.

Unfortunately, in our opinion The Law Society of Scotland website is nowhere near as good as it's English/Welsh counterpart when it comes to helping people with their search for legal help. (Though it naturally pains me to admit such a thing!) The Law Society for England/Wales will provide individual information pages with a huge range of details such as all the solicitors within a firm, their qualification dates, their specialities, any related brand names, other offices, SRA regulation numbers with various links out and more. The Scottish version only lists names and some contact details within a search function.

Another place people tell us they research firms with is companies house to see the start date of the firm to gauge how experienced they are. However, that's not really that helpful. Whilst there are hundreds of law firms proudly stating 'established in 1881' - it is impossible for there to be a 150-year-old solicitor sat behind a desk imparting his knowledge to the rest of the staff. Sadly, founding dates can be merely marketing ploys. A one-year-old firm might have twenty-year-experienced solicitors on staff and a twenty-year-old firm might stick you with a one-year-experienced solicitor.

OJ Solicitors is a good example of this because whilst the official Ltd company was only established in 2020, the solicitors within it have been practicing law for over a decade. Again, it's a shame that The Scottish Law Society does not help with better information in this area. So what else can you check?

"From the very beginning his team were generous with their time, thorough and reassuring."

"Very professional and prompt."

"Always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. He always went the extra mile for myself and my family."

"Cel mai bun Avocat din Scoția"


These are some reviews from the public review boards. There are dozens including Yelp, Google, Facebook, Yell.com, Trustpilot, etc. We ran a poll last year and a whopping 81% of you said you didn't trust testimonials on company websites. Not just for the legal industry either. So having plenty of independent reviews to go through is always helpful. Just make sure to read the comments and not just flick through star ratings. Quite often you'll see negative ratings with comments that don't even sound as though they are talking about the correct firm. We've experienced this personally when someone decided to have a rant about 'capitalist law firms!' on our review section.

"For personal injury claims and work accidents we have a "no win, no fee" policy, which means that if you do not win your case you won't have to pay us any fees."


One thing we always advise people is to ask up front about both "no win, no fee" and "100% compensation" promises with the firm their checking out. Many people believe they mean the same thing, but they don't. No win, no fee simply means that if the case loses you will not have to pay anything. 100% compensation promises mean that if you win, the law firm will not take a cut of your compensation. It is a balancing act though. The more high quality firms will always take a cut of your compensation. However, they will usually get you more compensation to begin with. So a firm promising both does not necessarily mean a better outcome for you.

A quick word on navigation, as obviously searching for variants of the firm's name such as 'oj lawyers' will bring up way too much of the wrong information. Right now, a search for "OJ Solicitors" on search engines brings up the correct firm with the official www.oj-solicitors.co.uk website. However www.ojsolicitors.co.uk is owned by a different firm. The most common tld variants of www.oj-solicitors.com and www.ojsolicitors.com are similarly not going to get you to the correct place.

We would therefore recommend bookmarking the correct site once you're on it just in case. Right now the main target for scammers are property law firms because of the huge amounts of money they can try and trick people into putting in the wrong place. However you never know what's around the corner so it's always advisable to do what you can to make sure you're in the right place on the web to begin with. A last word to the firm:

"Ioan is a dual-qualified legal professional, Scottish solicitor and Romanian in house lawyer who holds a Master's degree in European and International Law. Oana is a mature, experienced solicitor, holding law degrees in both Romania and Scotland, with over ten years of practice."


General Notes: Usually if Legal Aid is possible we've mentioned it above, but you can always ask. We haven't looked in depth at their recruitment program so are unaware of any job vacancies available. For a career with OJ Solicitors Ltd it's best to visit the website (www.oj-solicitors.co.uk), check opening hours, and find the correct phone/email contact details. Simply emailing a CV to reception looks lazy. Each law firm's Law Society and/or SRA number should be on their site, usually at the bottom of each page.
