I was recently made redundant, never having to use a solicitor before, I contacted Karen Morovic to support me with my settlement offer. I cannot fault Karen and her assistant Jo. Karen provided very good advice, detailed understanding of a very lengthy legal document and support in what is a very distressing situation. I would definitely recommend Karen for your employment law requirements.

Divorce

Made an appointment to see divorce lawyer, but had to cancel as I became seriously ill from stress. I rang to make another appointment but was told they were too busy and I should try another local lawyer. I was a loyal client of J Fowlers but will not seek to use their services, due to the way I was treated by the staff.

Daren Vythilingum at John Fowlers LLP helped me through my divorce. He was brilliant and unflappable, providing sensible advice which took a lot of the strain out of an otherwise traumatic experience. He replied to queries quickly and drove the process forward with competence and care. I could not have got through the process without his help and that of his team. Thank you

Will and probate

11/05/18 - Reviewed by The Devils Crown

IMHO personal opinions and perceptions: Another town centre dynasty practise that rocketed literally overnight from small offices in the high street to probably the second largest outfit in the town. Complicated set up and a similar MO to another operation in the town on a smaller scale.
Unpleasant and matter of fact admin and reception staff. (This could border on a complaint to the ombudsman).
One particular person in the firm was known to be a very friendly individual 35 years ago, but as soon as the lofty heights of leadership beckoned upon them, an air of arrogance has now appeared to have cultivated and manifested itself?
"The saving grace to this firm is its legal department in st botolphs truly superlative (I would strongly suggest and recommend this section)".
Unfortunately on the whole a very disappointing firm that is held up positively by one particular section.

Highly professional service, amazing efficiency, I am so grateful for the hard work and effort that went into my case. If you need help with domestic violence or any family issues I would strongly recommend Dawn Dorrell.

Initially the services were great and advice was solid.
However they sent my Decree Absolute to a wrong address. I emailed twice and did not receive an acknowledgment or an apology. I did however email the gentleman who deals with complaints. He did apologise and gave me reassurance that he would stress the importance of posting things accurately, to the people responsible.
I then discovered, a few months later, that on a different date, my invoice and letters had also been sent to the wrong address. Very sensitive documents for me, embarrassing and unprofessional. I did receive an apology and £89.10. They were charging me approx £250 per hour!

A further note. I wrote to Neil Watts
Managing Partner, John Fowlers Solicitors, he immediately responded and apologised and refunded the money I had paid.
He understood, was fair and apologetic. I am grateful to him.

Nothing to recommend about this firm the service is absolutely shocking!! Nothing is ever done on time the lack of updates and correspondence is appalling! I wouldn't even give 1 star but apparently it is invalid to submit without a rating.
