After being in business for 5 years we have had the opportunity to work with a few law firms but have always felt like the little guy. That is until we started working with Lawyers in House. From our first meeting to every meeting afterwards, they have continuously treated us as equals, quoted us reasonably and stuck to their word. For anyone thinking of working with Lawyers in House, we can’t recommend them enough!
