Open Law is a solicitors’ practice that does things differently. They moved into Honley, above Valli Opticians, in 2017 but also have offices in the Colne Valley and St Albans.
The Open- Law name came from the fact they have an open-door policy. Their aim is to help people navigate the often confusing and complicated legal world. Whether they’re dealing with conveyancing (property), family law or private client law (such as wills and probate), Open Law treat clients as people, guiding them carefully through the complexities of the legal system.
Director, and qualified solicitor, Luke Underhill, explains the company’s philosophy:
“We’re people as well as solicitors, and we bring that human element to all our work. Many of us have been on the other side of the table too. We’ve bought property, made wills, experienced divorce and child matters, and sadly have lost loved ones, so we can empathise with our clients.”
By understanding and acknowledging the stress and emotion that often goes hand-in-hand with legal procedures, means that Open Law offer a compassionate and understanding service for all their clients.
Open and transparent
Whether you’re buying a new home, filing for divorce, making a will or have lost a love one, your first chat with an Open Law solicitor – known as a discovery call – is completely free of charge. You’re under no obligation to take things further, but if you like what they have to say, most Open Law legal services work on a fixed fee contract, so you know exactly how much you’ll pay right at the start.
For those legal services that are more open-ended, Open Law will agree terms in advance, keep you updated and can even spread the payments over several months to help with budgeting.

If you’re buying or renting a new home, or purchasing or leasing your property for your business then have a chat with Open Law’s conveyancing team.
They’ve the experience and expertise to help you out whether it’s a straightforward sale or something more complicated. When it comes to rental or leasing contracts, they’ll make sure you understand exactly what you’re signing up for, and that it’s in your best interests.
The Family Law team are there to hold your hand in the case of a family breakdown. They understand it’s stressful and an emotionally charged time for all, especially if children are involved. By treating you with respect, understanding and compassion, they’ll guide you through the legal process in a way that’s practical and easy to understand.
Affordable wills and probate
Open Law offer extremely low-cost wills. They keep the price low to make professional wills affordable and avoid the need to use either DIY or will writers who do not have the relevant experience and qualifications.
