Hi- can anyone help me with some advice about such a solicitor, I would like to go with one nearby who are small and friendly but the larger city one I've been recommended to has accreditation with AVMA and law society which the other does not.

Does anyone know, whether this matters ie would my claim be taken more seriously if I went with the accredited firm? Thanks!

Oh, also the local one seems do help with costs more whereas the bigger one asks for initial payments more eg with expert reports

I don't know if it would make a claim be taken more seriously, but I'd go with the one that has the accreditation. And the one that has the best record for winning! (can you find that out? Percentages of cases won, for example. I don't know if you can.)

We went with a big firm (my son received a severe birth injury that left him with a permanent disability due to spectacular incompetence) and they were shit hot.

On clinical negligence you would be best to go for accredited specialist IMO
