I checked the record of my solicitor, but couldn't find them on your solicitor check. Does this mean they're not a real solicitor?

No, this means that they do not have any published regulatory decisions on their record for the past three years. Not all solicitors have regulatory decisions against them, and not all regulatory decisions are published.

The Law Society's Find a Solicitor search aims to include all individuals and law firms that are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and who choose to be listed. Most solicitors are on the Law Society's find a solicitor search engine, but not all. We will be able to tell you if an individual is regulated by us if you contact us.

You can find out if we regulate a firm using our Law firm search.
