Most people who need legal advice in the UK automatically turn to their local solicitor. They do so because that is the way their family has also got their legal advice. In the past that would have been the only option open to most people.
These days people have far more choice. The internet has made it far easier for people to find a solicitor and seek help. Some legal advisors will even give advice via a video call. Now that they can communicate about some aspects of the case via email or text things move faster.
There are many advantages to not automatically using your local solicitor for advice.
Here are a few of them.

For a fixed fee, some solicitors and legal advisors will take a brief look at your situation or case and give you an overview of your options. This makes it possible to sound out more than one advisor and get several legal points of view. This increases your chances of making the right decision about how to proceed.
