Solicitors in Hertfordshire

Hertfordshire’s location makes it an important county for commuters and industry alike. It has been commercially important and there are still a number of large companies based in Hertfordshire; however high land prices and low unemployment have meant that many big industries have moved out of the area and it remains to be seen if this trend will continue.

Solicitors in Hertfordshire practise in many areas of law. Like most places in England there has been a recent increase in solicitors practising in personal-injury law, but this has more to do with changes in the law, rather than changes in demand for certain types of solicitors.

Solicitors in Hertfordshire can assist their clients with:

  • family law issues
  • employment law claims
  • writing a will and probate
  • commercial and residential conveyancing
  • corporate and commercial legal issues

Hertfordshire has a number of courts in various towns - Hertford is the county town of Hertfordshire and has a county court and a magistrates’ court. The county court hears most civil claims and is located at 4th Floor, Sovereign House, Hale Road, Hertford, SG13 8DY. The magistrates’ court hears low level criminal cases and is located at Shire Hall, Fore Street, Hertford, Hertfordshire. Solicitors should be instructed for all cases that require you to attend court, particularly criminal cases.

If for any reason you decide not to instruct solicitors, Hertfordshire has a number of Citizens Advice Bureaus which may be able to provide you with some basic advice. Hertford Citizens Advice Bureau can be found at Block D, Yeoman’s Court, Ware Road, Hertford, SG13 7HJ. You should be aware that the Bureau is not open during all office hours and you may need to make an appointment.
