Bands in legal 500 and Chambers

How reliable are the bands in chambers and legal 500? I spoke to a lawyer I liked but I've just found out they are a band 4. Now I'm worried I should see someone in a higher band. She wasn't cheap either - £550 per hour.

Do these bands matter and truly reflect the better firm?

If the firm are listed they will be good, don't worry about the band unless it is highly specialised or ground beaking work.

Thank you @Fernicktylo I've just realised they don't get a mention in chambers but are in the legal 500. Is that a bad sign then? They weren't cheap so I could probably afford a higher band solicitor for the same price so should I just in case?
