Resolving complaints about solicitors

Unhappy with our service?

We always deal with cases efficiently. However, sometimes things don't go according to plan. When that happens, we try to put things right immediately.

If you are not happy with the way we are dealing with your case you need to tell us as soon as possible. This is important as we are not able to look at your concerns about our service after we have closed our file.

To complain about our service, speak to your caseworker or their team manager, quoting your reference number.

If you're still unhappy, contact our Quality and Service Standards Team. Call 01926 823123 or email

If you want the LSO to review your file, you should contact the LSO within three months of the date of our decision.
