    Things have become somewhat difficult since my parents and grandparents have died, the last one in the spring. I very seriously need to get some legal advice to find out where I stand and what the options are for going forward if a dispute, which seemed so trivial at first, cannot be resolved quickly.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for solicitors in the west country? Must have a lot of experiance with ag tenancies, partner disputes, sporting rights etc as well as land in trust.

    Thanks!!

    If you are an NFU member they will be able to point you in the right direction.

    Not always. NFU panel solicitor has cost me a fortune on a simple mortgage.

    We can put you in contact with a solicitor that has the experience you are looking for. In the vast majority of cases, a free initial consultation is offered. (and I can make sure that you receive some free starting advice).

    Wilsons have some good people but their swanky Salisbury offices will mean rates are higher than average.

    Always got on ok with Thrings.

    Same here, NFU panel solicitor gave us very poor advice a couple of years ago, we had to engage someone else to get the required outcome. You get what you pay for.

    Maybe if you pay legal cover also on your insurance or Subs.

    anyone ever had a solicitor take on a case where the claimant has been in the wrong but took on the work anyway? always makes me think do they say to the claimant clearly what they think the odds are or just have a crack?

    Seriously? Free initial consultation? My better half is a lawyer and no one gets anything free. Her advice is worth paying for so she expects to get paid! Free advice is worthless.

    You usually get what you pay for in the legal profession.... like most other areas.
    Someone really good will be much cheaper in the long run.

    Any good solicitor will give you a free consultation, but it will be very general and in the expectation of more work
