    I didn’t know there were so many different names for lawyers! My husband and his friends were talking about what kind of lawyer they would need to get and I got really confused. That is good to know that a solicitor is a lawyer who is qualified to deal with transactional matters like wills, conveyancing, and other things. Thank you so much for all the information about the different names and types of lawyers! It was a big help!
