Lancashire Police are reported to have produced a list of words used by teenagers and young people with the ‘translation’ so that the police officer can ‘get down with the kidz’ and police effectively.
Here’s the thing: slang words or shortened versions of words are used by all of us, in whatever we do. They are a shorthand. They make us feel like we belong to the ‘club’ whether that is the teenager club (our ship has long since sailed for that club) or the solicitors/barristers/legal bod club (we am in that one) or, I am I willing to bet, the electricians club, the plumbers club…..
We understand that legal terms, words and ideas can seem scary and baffling to those who do not use them day in day out, as we do. We use plain English. We want to make sure you know where you are heading and why. We are happy to go over ideas and concepts until you are confident YOU understand them. It’s important to us because you are the one who will be making the decisions in YOUR matters about YOUR life.
Like the sound of that? Contact us today. As the teenagers would say, we are peng.
