’Use a professional. Use a solicitor’, is the theme of a high-profile advertising campaign launched by the Law Society today to remind consumers to go to solicitors rather than unregulated providers for legal advice.

 It focuses on six areas of law: conveyancing, personal injury, wills and probate, business law, family law and criminal law.

The highly visual campaign – which includes online media such as ITV Player, and railway station and bus adverts – will run until early next year. Law Society members will be able to use images from the campaign in their own marketing materials.

Society president Andrew Caplen said: ‘The campaign reinforces solicitors as the go-to experts when people are seeking legal advice on house purchases, will-writing or establishing a new business, and directs people to the Find a Solicitor service.’
