If you are a member of the Advance union, both you and your family have access to a range of free legal services as part of your membership. Thompsons Solicitors is proud to represent Advance members, and ensure their rights are protected.

Personal injury claims 

This includes legal advice on personal injury claims that comes with a 100% compensation promise and the guarantee of no legal fees – something no non-union solicitor can offer.

Advance members receive free personal injury claim advice and representation for accidents, diseases or injuries – whether in or outside of work, in the UK or on holiday. Family members are covered for non-work related personal injuries, disease and holiday accidents.

Legal advice on personal injury claims and non-criminal legal services can be obtained on 0845 712 5495, Monday to Friday (8:30am to 7pm).

Beyond personal injury, Advance members benefit from a host of additional, work-related legal protections including:

Specialist work-related criminal law services 

Advance members have access to a 24-hour criminal law helpline (0800 587 7530) available to members involved in work-related criminal problems and free criminal representation at police stations for work-related matters

Representation in assault at work claims

Members also receive representation in Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) claims arising from assaults at work

Expert legal advice line

Members can also access up to 30 minutes of free telephone legal advice for a range of legal matters (excluding employment law)

Free wills for Advance members and discounted rates for family

Being a member of Advance allows you to create one free “simple” online will, as well as one for your partner or spouse. Your extended family can also access this service for a fixed, reduced cost of £139.50 (including VAT) for a single, “simple” online will and £223.20 (including VAT) for a joint, “simple” online will. Please be advised that different rates will apply in Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands and the Channel Islands owing to their having different legal systems. Click to create your online will.

Advance members also have access to help with drafting Power of Attorney, Trusts, Administration of Probate Estates and other services.

Competitively priced conveyancing services

Advance members and their families can access a competitively-priced, fixed fee conveyancing service. The cost of the service is based on the value of the property being bought and quotes are available on request to Thompsons. Once again, different rates apply in Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.
