Normal People who just happen to be Legal Experts

Thursday 21st October 2021

It can be really difficult to know where to begin when dealing with legal issues. If you choose the wrong solicitors, it can be time consuming, stressful and intimidating, right? We understand this, which is why we are here to help you in a friendly and straightforward way. At Howard & Over, we are normal people. Just like you, we enjoy snuggling up in the winter and watching TV in the evenings with a cup of tea or a glass of wine – but we also just happen to be legal experts.

You’re probably wondering – how are we really normal people and how are we any different from other firms? Well firstly at Howard & Over we cut through the legal jargon and speak to you in language that makes sense. Going to discuss legal issues can be intimidating when you feel like you don't really understand it yourself. You are likely to end up being more worried about understanding it, than actually dealing with it. That’s where we take over. We understand that not everyone knows legal terminology, which is why we make sure that we explain everything to you with this in mind. As specialists in law, we like to be straightforward and make sure that you know exactly what we’re doing the whole time.

Secondly, we like to get to know you. As our partner Becky says, “you’ll get to know the person that’s dealing with your matter and form a relationship with them.”  It’s important for us to get to know you so that we can work with you in the best possible way. But we also want you to get to know us too. This is so that you can recognise that we are a friendly solicitor’s firm and a safe environment for you to discuss whatever you feel is necessary on the day. To do this, we make sure that you can contact us whenever, so your assigned lawyer will provide you with their direct dial number so that you can call them when needed.

We really are just like you. There’s no need to feel intimidated or worried with us. Our partner and solicitor Donna says that “we don’t act in a superior manner”, and that’s because we really are just normal people, almost like friends, that happen to be able to help you succeed in your legal issues. We are legal specialists, and that is all there is to it. We do our jobs well in order to meet your needs, but we don't have to act superior to do so. Katherine, also our partner and solicitor, stated that “everyone feels comfortable at Howard & Over”.

As an approachable firm, you can feel free to address any issue with us. Howard & Over make you feel at ease and comfortable, so go grab a cuppa, a pen and some paper and jot down everything on your mind.
