|Chambers & Partners Top Ranked
When you pick a solicitor, you probably go on a mix of gut feel and recommendation and to a degree you just hope for the best. People in the know use Chambers rankings. It is primarily used by commercial users of legal services such as insurers and big corporates who need reliable market data about law practices and barristers. However, it is also a brilliant starting point for individuals looking to pick their legal advice carefully.
Chambers is an independent organisation which has been rating lawyers for many years. White Dalton come as highly recommended and you cannot buy your way into a Chambers ranking. To get in there you have to be at the top of your game. Independent researchers interview former clients, current clients, opponents, barristers (both the ones we use and the ones we have been against) and even judges and then come up with a totally independent analysis of where you sit in the market. Very few firms ever get “ranked” – the process is fierce and you need to be confident of your skills and reputation to put yourself forward. We come out of it pretty well.
Andrew Dalton is one of only four “leading individuals” as rated by Chambers 500 in the South East of England for Claimant Personal Injury. As this area stretches from Southampton to Milton Keynes, he has a lot of competition. Chambers 500 is the leading independent guide to the legal profession world wide. Chambers 500 also comments “Niche motorcycle practice White Dalton Motorcycle Solicitors enjoys an excellent reputation in the market.” As the market really only involves the firms we are in competition with or our opponents this is high praise indeed. The word “excellent” does not get thrown about in the legal profession.

And as a "notable practitioner" Andrew Dalton is "exceptionally committed to his clients and to the work." and having "a keen understanding of the technical and forensic aspects of biking cases".

You can’t get better standards than this from a more reliable source than “Chambers” - we are proud of what we as a small firm representing an unloved minority of road users have achieved. In our offices we refer to our clients by their first names, our clients are our lads (including the ones in their 70’s and 80’s) or our ladies. We do fight hard, with expertise and exceptional commitment for our “lads and lasses”. You will never just be a number at White Dalton. You place a great deal of faith in us by placing your injuries in our hands.
Our honesty comes from our independence. We have nothing to do with insurers or claims management companies. We neither pay nor receive referral fees and we never take commission from any of our experts. You would be surprised at just how rare this is in the legal profession. It is also unheard of in the claims factories where battery farms of unqualified claims handlers inadequately process claims, constantly looking for “revenue streams” of hire charges and “commissions” – or calling a spade a spade, a bribe. It is perfectly possible to be at the top of your game professionally without being a detached legal robot or a dodgy ambulance chaser looking to scalp as much as you can for yourself at every stage of the claim.
