As experienced Solicitors, we understand that at times using legal services can be a little daunting. This is why we strive to provide a friendly and professional service at all times to each of our clients, however, we also understand, that sometimes things may not go as expected, and our clients may wish to raise a complaint.
If you have any concerns about the way in which your matter is being conducted, in the first instance you can raise these to the person dealing with your matter, or the Head of the Department.
We would hope that your concern can be resolved at this point, however, if you remain unsatisfied then you can formalise your complaint to the Complaints Team (overseen by Managing Director Andrew Settle) by using any of the details below:

Complaint Acknowledgment Times
Your complaint will be acknowledged within 7 calendar days and we aim to provide a final resolution within 28 calendar days.
However, should your complaint be of a complex nature and should we require a little more time to investigate, we will inform you of this and aim to provide you of a date when you will receive your final resolution by.
Your complaint will be provided to you in writing, via both email and post, providing we have a registered email address on your account with us.
If you are dissatisfied with the resolution provided by the Complaints Team, or with the way in which your claim has been handled, then you may request that your file is independently reviewed by an external Solicitor who will make such further investigations as are necessary. The external Solicitor will inform you of the conclusion and any alternative proposals to resolve your complaint, usually within 28 calendar days of this being referred to them.

I had the mis fortune to need Legal advice over an employment issue right at the start of the Covid 19 outbreak/lock down period. I had previously heard of JJL though an event that they run annually so thought why not give them a go. The service I received was excellent the whole team were attentive and explained all of the legal details in plain English. Within a week or so my issue was resolved successfully which given the current state of the country I was super impressed with. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone in need of legal advice.
I have been working with Joseph James Law for over a year now and have found each member of the team I have worked with highly knowledgeable and extremely professional. I have worked with Katarzyna for the most part and she has been very supportive, the communication between us has always been clear and timely especially when dealing with some highly sensitive issues.ML Group
