If you are searching for a solicitor in St Helens, Forster Dean are the team of friendly experts who are on hand to provide the support and legal advice you need.

You may only require a solicitor once or twice during your lifetime and it can be quite unnerving contacting one for the first time. Whether you need to put together a will, want to claim personal injury compensation or have an issue that involves family law, each of our solicitors is an expert in their field with many years’ experience.

All our team are good listeners too and they’ll be able to explain in simple terms what legal action you should take next and how you should proceed. Here are some of the legal problems we can help you with:

Employment Law

A lot of people today are struggling because of the lockdown and there is pressure on the workplace like nothing we’ve ever seen before.

Employment law covers a lot of areas including discrimination, substandard health and safety practices, unfair dismissal and redundancy. If you think you are being unfairly treated by your employer, it’s always wise to get advice from a qualified solicitor in St Helens. Our team covers all aspects of employment law, ensuring your rights are protected.

Personal Injury

If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation. This is important if, for example, the injury has been severe enough to stop you from working or which affects your financial situation. Compensation can also be used to help adjust your home so that you are able to live life more fully following your accident.

Whether you’ve been injured in a car accident, at work or simply visiting the local shopping centre, it’s important to sit down with a personal injury lawyer who can advise on what you should do next.

Will Writing

Everyone should have a will. Dying intestate means that your wishes for how your estate is settled are not taken into account and everything is essentially decided by the state. If you want to be sure all your assets are distributed as you want, it’s an easy process to produce a legally binding will that gives you and your family complete peace of mind.

Even during the lockdown, we are still able to help people compose and witness their wills, carrying out consultations remotely using video conferencing tools.


One of the most stressful times in people’s lives is buying or selling a house. As anyone who has been through it knows, there’s a lot of legal work where the I’s need to be dotted and the t’s crossed. Working with a qualified and experienced conveyancing solicitor should make all this much easier and ensure everything is completed on time.

At Forster Dean, our solicitors have worked with thousands of clients in the St Helen’s area, helping many buy their first home.

Family Law

Family law covers a broad range of legal situations such as divorce, financial disputes, child custody and pre-nuptial agreements. These sorts of legal issues often involve heightened emotions and our role at Forster Dean is to support you and ensure you get the appropriate legal advice to help solve your problem.
