How Did You Pick The Best Will Trust & Probate Solicitors in Edinburgh?
We started with a dataset of 6 listed Edinburgh solicitors and will writing services we could find via Google Maps.
From there, we removed any listing that did not meet the following criteria.
- Had no website
- Had no reviews
- Had an average review score below 4.0
At this point if we had 17 or fewer listings we listed all of them.
For cities where we were left with more than 17 solicitors we made further revisions by either increasing the required review score (e.g. going from a minimum of 4.0 to 4.9) and/or increasing the minimum number of required reviews (e.g. going from at least 1 review to at least 10).
In our view a solicitor which has 100 5* star reviews is likely more accurate than one which only has a single 5* review.
Note we only used review data from Google Maps and not any other third-party websites.
