Choosing the right solicitor can be difficult, and with so many to choose from how is Oglethorpe Sturton and Gillibrand different? How do you choose?

We are the largest law firm in Lancaster, with a second office in Kirkby Lonsdale, and here are just a few examples of how you can instruct us with confidence and assurance that we will provide you with the high level of service you have been searching for:

Qualified – The lawyer dealing with your matter will be a qualified solicitor or legal executive who have had years of training and qualifications behind them. We are all specialised in a particular area of law, so you may deal with one solicitor for your property transaction, and another colleague for making your Will. This ensures that you receive the best advice for that particular matter. We also cover a broad range of legal services so we can attend to all your legal needs under one roof.

Accreditations – The firm has also achieved several industry specific accreditations, including the Conveyancing Quality Scheme for our property department and the Family Law Accreditation which is the recognised quality standard for family lawyers. Just as importantly – several of our solicitors have personal accreditations; by way of example we have several members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) who have undertaken additional learning and examinations to provide the best advice in the area of Wills, Trusts and Estates. Our family solicitors are members of Resolution which promotes collaborative action for divorce and family matters, and our litigation team are extremely experienced with David Barnes being a member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists, to name but a few.

Service – We strive to provide an excellent personal service to you, where you deal with one qualified lawyer who will handle your matter from start to finish. We have direct emails and direct telephone numbers, so we can be contacted at any time in the working day.

Competitive –We are unlikely to be the cheapest on the market, as our fees reflect the level of expertise and quality service you will receive from us, and the wealth and breath of our experience across the firm, but our fees are competitive. Wherever possible we will agree our level of fees with you at the outset, so that there are no nasty surprises when you reach the end.

Recommendations – The majority of our work comes from personal and professional recommendations, as well as families who have trusted us to look after them through the generations.
