      I would give them zero stars if it was possible.

      What can I say about Mrs Beckett? She's a greedy, selfish, self centred and absolutely doesn't care about you or your family.

      When she looks at you, she sees $$$ and that's all she cares about - rest assured this is common practice among these types of solicitors.

      More so about Mrs Beckett, she proudly claims to be a "Mediator and Arbitrator". This may be the case on paper, but at the end of the day, she is more interested in your time/money - so if she can prolong your case as much as possible and not mediate or arbitrate then you can bet your bottom dollar that she will not choose the latter.

      Last but not least her puppy of an assistant, Ms Pratt (yes, that's her real name...) her emails are full of errors, typos and generally there is a lack of attention to detail and care. Truly unprofessional over phone and email.

      How can you justify charging £250 per hour November 2015 then £280 per hour in early 2017. Your services did not match this sum of money.

      Our charges are reviewed in April each year and are in line with other Solicitor’s charges. They also follow the judicial guidelines for solicitor’s charges. We offer fixed fees where appropriate and regular cost updates. We are not the cheapest but nor are we the most expensive.

      Thanks Tom and yes it's well below what many firms in the South East charge. I'm not going to claim it's cheap but solicitors have massive overheads. Our professional indemnity insurance alone can cost over £100,000 per annum in premiums.

      The solicitor does not know who you are? Please contact them in the morning and the issue will try to be resolved. If you are not prepared to identify yourself with the solicitor there is nothing they can do?

      I am scared their charges are sky high and left me with nothing. I am charged for everything and more.
      I would probably be charged for these reviews that's why I remain anonymous.

      I do not know who you are and I should be grateful if you would identify yourself. I do not control this site and I do not believe that any genuine reviews have been removed (good or bad).

      However, if you have left more than one review you will be in breach of the site's terms of use and can easily be identified by the site administrator.

      If you remain anonymous the solicitor can not help you or resolve any issues. Please do not post multiple reviews on this site.

      Unfortunately we found this service to be very poor, the receptionist was rude and unhelpful and the solicitor was completly inflexible. Would not reccomend to my worst enemy. The one star is over rated.

      i found the ph staff very friendly-Possibly borderline near top best ph staff experience of that type.
      [Not as good as when free ph call centre & guess which call centre & where he lived within less than mile from his accent & hadhad a really good laugh]
      (Try to make sure if being charged for call- this seems to be true of ALL soliciters-AFTER you are their client/customer )
      I m still with them & so cant yet do indended extremely extensive longest review here yet.
      Think better at some matters than others (again guess true of ALL soliciters)
      Sorry u had bad experience
      cheers
      ps staff chance over time-we may have spoke to different people,or you got a temp
