Frank Rogers Law Ltd - Motoring Offence Solicitor in Birkenhead: Review
It's a common misconception that general practice firms are less able to handle various case types than specialists. The idea being that a solicitor who handles a dozen different types of cases over a year can't possibly be as good as a solicitor who handles just that one case type.
Certainly in very small firms and with sole practitioners if they state covering a simply massive range of cases - this will be true. However if, for example, the firm has only three solicitors and covers three distinct case areas - then it is very likely that each is a specialist.
That needed to be made clear because we don't recommend Frank Rogers simply because he only handles one area of law and therefore must be better. There are several other factors you should weigh up and research before settling on the person/firm that is right for you.
That's the obvious aim. But having worked with law firms for over 20+ years now, we know that experience is far more of a factor in success with motor offences. Failing to give driver identity information, speeding, totting up (when you've accumulated the maximum number of points), drink driving, driving with no insurance, using a mobile phone whilst driving and so on all have a range of options and mitigations.
We knew Frank Rogers when he was with Kirwans, so are aware of his previous experience. But how do you find out if it's your first time ever coming across a particular firm? If you're feeling bold, just ask - even if it's just a quick email. Note that many law firm's websites will make a statement such as "40 years of experience within the firm" or "20 years of combined experience". This is marketing jargon and simply means they added up the experience of everyone in the practice. For example, 5 solicitors x 4 years experience each = 20 years' experience. That's very different from your own solicitor have 20-40 years' of knowledge behind them.
You can usually look up the qualification dates and expertise of most solicitors on The Law Socienty's website. The page for this firm will provide you with several links to look information about the practice, people and cases worked on. There is a Law Society website for each area. One for Scotland, one for England/Wales, and one for Northern Ireland as each has quite separate legal setups. Frank Rogers is qualified to act within England & Wales.
One of the main searches online in this area is for 'loopholes' which is a concept we're not a fan of. It's something that gained prevalance after a number of celebrities (mostly premier league footballers) were breaking the law and getting away with it thanks to a lawyer nicknamed Mr Loophole by the press. Whilst Frank Rogers does state he know the loopholes, that is absolutely not how most cases are 'won'.
Unlike many firms who want you to call and speak to them before they hit you with the bad news of how much it's going to cost - this firm's site has an entire page with clear prices and package descriptions of various scenarios. Please note that whilst some firms may say they work with Legal Aid, the restrictions on who actually merits that help are unbelievably tight. Make sure to find out first if you qualify before really getting in to things with that firm.
Also keep an eye out for whether a firm offers a free consultation with the actual qualified solicitor who may be running your case. This should be stated clearly on their website with a time such as 15 mins, 30 mins or 1 hour. If it's not stated, then it's likely you will have to pay up front to get any real advice. Do Frank Rogers offer this?
They also appear to have a genuine Blog section. Unfortunately most companies, not just in the legal industry, use the Blog section to create a dozen extra sales pitches disguised as news or information.
There aren't any step by step guides on how to handle a defence yourself. But basic matters such as "What Happens If You’re Caught Speeding?", "What are the likely penalties for an SP30 offence?", and "How long do points stay on your licence?" are covered. Certainly if you can get these basic answers sorted first, you can get much more out of your free consultation. So that's good.
Finding information on Frank Rogers Law as a firm may be tricky for a while. As we said, he worked at Kirwans Solicitors for many years. So when you type "frank rogers law" into Google, it's currently mostly reviews of the Kirwans law firm that show up in the results. With law firms, people tend to prefer reviews on third party boards such as Google, Yelp, Trustpilot and Yell.com over those posted on the firm's testimonial page. However in lieu of such being available yet:
We've linked to the official site www.frankrogerslaw.co.uk above. We saw that www.frankrogers.co.uk is a different firm dealing with property with neither www.frankrogerslaw.com or www.frankrogers.com having anything on them yet. It's always a good idea to bookmark a law firm's site if you plan to return to it frequently. But it's mainly property matters that are targeted by scammers at the moment.
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 Frank Rogers Law Ltd it's best to visit the website (www.frankrogerslaw.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.
