About Us

Forthright and fiercely independent

TaylorGoodchild Solicitors premises are conveniently located in central Middlesbrough, a stone’s throw away from Teesside Magistrates Court and the Combined Court Centre. Ample on-street parking and next door car park, make access to our premises within easy reach. 

With over 40 years of legal experience to draw upon, TaylorGoodchild Solicitors comprise a team of highly committed and dedicated legal professionals, focused and determined to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

TaylorGoodchild Solicitors commenced providing legal services to the local community back in 2004 as a partnership, quickly growing in stature and presence within the legal field until becoming incorporated as a company in 2011, as TaylorGoodchild Limited.

Specialising in Criminal Law, Actions against the Police and Public Bodies, Personal Injury, Criminal Injuries Compensation and Road Traffic Law, we aim to provide a bespoke service tailored to your individual needs and instructions. 

We will consider all available evidence and then take your instructions. Following this, robust, accurate and competent case analysis will assist you in deciding the most beneficial way for your case to proceed. We will advise you on the likely prospects of success in achieving your aims, and the possible financial risk to yourself, if any.

Depending upon your case and personal circumstances, we can make available a number of funding options to you to include, Conditional Fee Arrangements (No win No fee), payment by Private Paying terms and Publically Funded Representation (Legal Aid).  Payment Plans can be arranged, subject to prior agreement. 

We continue to maintain excellence in the provision of legal services where client care, understanding, trust and the appreciation of each client’s individual needs, is the foundation of the relationship that exists between us. 

Unashamedly independent, we provide representation to all, regardless of race, sex, religion or belief, sexual orientation, age, or disability, perceived or otherwise.

We are committed to the representation of all members of the community, particularly assisting those on a limited income, to obtain representation and to have their voices heard. 

Holding independently assessed industry Standard Quality Mark and Law Society Accreditation, you can be assured of continued excellence in the service and advice we provide.
