The Co-operative Legal Services

The Co-operative Legal Services are dedicated to widening and easing public access to legal provision. Our experts provide a trusted source of legal advice over the phone, offering straightforward services at reasonable prices. Services cover:

  • Probate 
  • Wills 
  • Family Law 
  • Personal Injury 
  • Employment 
  • Conveyancing

Unlike many other law firms and businesses, we only provide legal services to private individuals.

This removes any potential conflict that may exist between providing legal services to individuals and large corporate businesses at the same time.

It also enables us to concentrate on developing highly efficient systems and processes which, backed by experienced legal teams, ensures that each client receives the very best customer service and achievable outcome.
