General Legal advice
26/01/21 - Reviewed by Anonymous
Possibly the worst customer service I’ve ever experienced. I found them rude, unhelpful, unorganised and lazy. They lied, ignored all requests and correspondence. Not sure how they are even a business. I recommend anyone to avoid this company, unless you want a litany of mistakes and terrible communication.

Surprised that despite making an enquiry, they requested no documentation whatsoever - a very different and seemingly lazy attitude compared to other solicitors Therefore would not recommend. You need someone who will work for you and with you.

Mr Parkinson does not hold, receive or have access to client money, or act as a signatory to any client or office account, or have the power to authorise electronic transfers from any client or office account.

In accordance with Section 41 of the Solicitors Act 1974, any solicitor wishing to employ or remunerate him in connection with their practise as a solicitor must obtain the SRA's approval. The SRA is satisfied that the above employment will not put public confidence in the administration of justice and the provision of legal services or the interests of clients at risk.
