WHO AM I?
I am Rebecca Calvert and I am an experienced Solicitor having worked in private practice for many years. I was a Company Director of my previous Firm, but wanted something quite different…
WHAT MAKES ‘REBECCA CALVERT LEGAL SERVICES’ DIFFERENT?
While in private practice I began to realise over the years, all the aspects of visiting a Solicitor that clients disliked. I often wondered if it would be possible to create a service which was far more modern, flexible, personal and convenient. The answer was unfortunately “No” at the time as our Regulatory Body, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) did not allow what I had in mind.
To my delight the SRA made some changes to the rules in 2019… and just like that “Rebecca Calvert Legal Services” was born.
WHAT I AIM TO CHANGE
Rebecca Calvert Legal Services is a mobile legal service. I come to you. No more parking worries.
When I acted for clients in full time employment it always seemed difficult for them to commit to an appointment as it meant they had to take time off work. Traditional law firms of course, usually operate during 9am to 5pm week-day working hours. When I acted for elderly clients they often found it stressful leaving their house and finding the office, especially where their mobility was an issue. When I acted for business owners in a commercial matter, they were often just too busy to make it to the office. Whatever the “type” of client, it all too often felt like an inconvenience to them.
I wanted to change this so that the service became as convenient as possible. Not only do I come to you, I come to you at a time and place to suit. If more convenient to you, I can attend outside of the rigid window of “usual” hours. I STRONGLY believe that the legal industry is changing and this is evident through the mere introduction of the SRA’s new rules. I believe there is a market for legal services to be provided on a far more flexible, modern, dynamic, less rigid, and mobile basis.
Everyone knows that legal work can be very costly. The reason for such costly work is that traditional law firms more often than not, have large premises, a lot of staff and high overheads.
Compared to a large law firm, my overheads are low and so I can offer a high quality service with fees which are extremely competitive.
It can all too often be difficult to speak to your Solicitor or the actual person dealing with your matter. As I deal with all aspects of your instruction personally, I am able to offer a service which allows you to have direct access with me at all times, either by telephone, email or face to face.
