Having ten years experience in private practice, Rebecca Reid at Illuminate Legal in Odiham knows all about the ‘perception’ of solicitors in the public eye. Many people find it hard to get away from the stereotypical dusty solicitors office filled with boring, dull and wealthy legal professionals who wouldn’t understand ‘everyday’ life, charge by the minute and seemingly (!) enjoy using complex words that clients don’t understand! It’s a hard image to get away from, particularly in the field of Wills and Probate which is the speciality at Illuminate Legal!
Rebecca at Illuminate Legal has started a different kind of practice. She approaches her work in a fresh and approachable fashion. She visits her clients in their own homes. She understands that it’s difficult to get away from the office/children/other commitments in the daytime and therefore can offer evening appointments if this would make life easier for her clients. She uses email, text messaging, phone and of course the standard post to communicate with her clients in a way to suit them. She offers a truly personalised service. She is the solicitor who will carry out all of the work for her clients and as she visits clients at home she gets a real sense of who they are and how she can provide the best possible service for them. She ensures that she remembers every detail that will make the process of preparing a Will, Lasting Power of Attorney or dealing with probate or another private client issue as pain-free and straightforward as possible.
Rebecca can also reassure her clients that she knows what she is doing. She is a fully qualified solicitor who has worked hard to obtain accreditations from other specialist bodies – Solicitors for the Elderly http://www.sfe.legal/ and STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) http://www.step.org/
Clients are the focus at Illuminate Legal, Odiham. Rebecca enjoys meeting clients from different backgrounds and ensuring that they understand all elements of the work she is doing for them. She speaks and writes in plain English and also offers fixed fee quotations for clients, where possible. Illuminate Legal provides a contemporary service for the modern client, with the reassurance of the quality and expertise that comes with a solicitor’s training and educational requirements. It’s a far cry from a boring and dusty solicitor’s office!
