Our Complaints Policy

We believe that listening to your concerns up front is of more value to you than dealing with a complaint which you shouldn’t have to make. Good client care should be second nature and we put our clients at the heart of everything we do.

We value:-

  • Great client service
  • Integrity and professionalism
  • Our clients and our people
  • Friendly, strong relationships
  • Open communication

Our approach to these values is demonstrated by our commitment to providing you with efficient, high-quality legal advice and service, with a high degree of personal attention and we aim to provide this to you at a fair cost. 

We invest a lot of time and energy in Client Care, and are proud of our excellent track record and reputation.

With the best will in the world, misunderstandings and problems occur from time to time. We aim to deal promptly, fairly and effectively with any concerns or issues you may have, about any aspect of our service and would really appreciate the opportunity to put things right for you.

If you are a client and you feel we have failed to meet our own standards or your expectations of us, we would ask that in the first instance you contact the supervisor responsible for the matter who will be happy to discuss it with you and we will do all that we can to resolve any issues quickly and efficiently. If you are still dissatisfied, then you are entitled to invoke our complaints process using the details below:-

Complaints may be provided through verbal or written means, and should be directed to Natalie Corbi on 01792 529621 or by emailing clientcare@jcpsolicitors.co.uk.

Please provide clear details of your complaint, ensuring that you provide your contact details: name, address and details of the matter that we are dealing with. 

Once informed of the details, we will send you written confirmation of the name of the 1st Tier Complaint Handler investigating your concern and a copy of our Complaints Policy which will inform you of the timescales involved. All complaints will be investigated promptly and thoroughly. The findings of the investigation and response will be sent to you within 21 days of receipt of your complaint, the response will include:

  • The steps taken to investigate the issue.
  • The findings of the investigation.
  • The action that will be taken to resolve the issue.

As a law firm regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, we must abide by principals to ensure that we behave independently, fairly and with integrity.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) can help if you are concerned about any of the above. This could be for things like dishonesty, taking or losing your money or treating you unfairly because of your age, a disability or other characteristic. We must also uphold the proper administration of justice.
