Issues You May Need Legal Advice In

At some point, you will probably find yourself needing to seek legal advice. Many aspects of every

day life require legal advice that can be given to you by a fully qualified lawyer or solicitor. Legal advice involves giving a professional or formal opinion that is obtained from analysing the facts of the situation and then giving advice to a client on what course of action they should take.

Giving legal advice without being fully qualified is the unauthorised practice of law and can be subject to court penalties. Trent Law can help clients with expert legal advice on a wide range of issues, using our time of highly trained solicitors for the legal and knowledgeable provision of advice.

Read on to find out more about Trent Law and what issues you may need legal advice on.

Legal Issue Trent Law Can Help With

Trent Law covers a wide range of fields, specialising in all areas of law so we can help as many people as possible, with as many issues as possible. We aim to be reliable, so we want our clients to feel like they can return to us with another issue in a different field instead of going elsewhere. Read on to find more about the various issues we can offer legal advice in.


We work with clients seeking legal advice in services involving immigration. This includes:

● Citizenship and Naturalisation

● Dependant Visa

● EEA Settlement Scheme

● Family Categories (fiance visa, spouse visa and extension, children’s visas)

● Human Rights (private and family life)

● Indefinite Leave to Remain/Settlements

● Litigation (appeals, administrative review, judicial review)

● Work Visas

Our services will include discussing your circumstances in detail and considering what the appropriate application for you is. We will then give advice about the requirements of the Immigration Rules and whether you meet the criteria. If you do now, we will discuss whether we can overcome these issues. Following this, we will help to prepare your application and then submit it on your behalf, handling any payment of disbursements you have.

We’ll give you advice on the possible outcomes and any further steps you may need to take. If it is a litigation matter, we can also attend court with you.

We will normally be able to submit this type of application within 2 weeks. In the event your application is rejected we will offer advice and assistance if you decide to appeal. We provide a fixed cost fee for immigration cases, with an initial consultation being charged at £100+VAT. If you would like to know more details about fees for our immigration services, use our quote calculator.

Landlord & Tenant

Trent Law works with both landlords and tenants on issues such as eviction, repossession, deposit issues, rent arrears, tenancy agreements and lease transfers. We can help with the eviction of private tenants legally.

Personal Injury

If you have been injured in an accident that isn’t your fault, you are probably entitled to some form of compensation. But if you’re unsure about whether you can make a claim, the expert team at Trent Law can assist in advising you and the process that results from a claim. Examples of personal injury claims include accidents in a public place, accidents at work, road traffic accidents, slips and trips. We will assess your incident and then decide whether you have the basis for a claim. Afterwards, we can help you submit your claim.

For personal injury, our staff work on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, so you can make a claim without worrying about failure and being left with expensive legal fees to pay.

Notary Services

If you need any notary services, we can provide a Notary Public to help prepare, validate and certify documents under an official seal. Having documents notarised is especially helpful in dealings abroad.

Our minimum or base fee is £80 with an hourly rate of £250. The hourly rate is only used on more complex tasks that will take an unpredictable amount of time. Otherwise, we will use our base fee.

Examples that require a Notary Public can include:

● Administration of oaths and declarations

● Attesting signatures and execution of documents

● Certification of academic documents

● Copies of identification and other documents

● Deed polls

● International affidavits

● Powers of attorney

● Travel consents

● Working abroad documents

Power of Attorney

If you’re looking to elect a Power of Attorney for yourself, Trent Law is here to help. A Power of Attorney is a document that gives legal authority to us or to the people you trust most. It helps to keep your affairs in order, such as financial needs, health, property and welfare. Then if you are in a condition where you are unable to make your own decisions, someone else can make them for you.

Employment Law

We work with both employers and employees on issues regarding employment law. This can include redundancy agreements, wrongful dismissal, breach of contract, policy issues and many more.

Family Law

Trent Law can help in challenging and complicated family law matters. This can include annulment, divorce, child custody cases and judicial separation. Our team will provide expert advice and a sympathetic service during this difficult time. In separation cases, we can work with you whether it is contested or uncontested.

Our process is an initial consultation to discuss your case and then representation at court attendance. The length of a case depends on the circumstances such as evidence, timetables to follow and conference with experts. Therefore the exact cost of this service is depending on your circumstances.

Wills & Probate

We can offer a supportive and professional service when dealing with wills and probate. Our solicitors can help you put the relevant legal paperwork in place to make sure everything is in order in the case of your death.


We have a team of specialised conveyancing lawyers able to help sort your mortgage, assist in property sales and draw up any legal documents you may require. We can assist with any house conveyancing process from start to finish, offering you expert advice the whole way through.

Commercial Property

Our team can also help with commercial property, using our years of experience and knowledge. This can include anything from the transfer of lease, rent deposit deeds, business sale and purchase of freehold, new lease, assignment of lease, underlease, surrender of lease, sale and purchase agreement, company formation and transfer of shares.
