We aim is to give you the best possible service at all times. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service we have provided to you then you should inform us immediately so that we can do our best to resolve the problem. In the first instance it may be helpful for you to contact the person who is working for you to discuss your concerns. We will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage. If you would like to make a formal complaint, we would refer to the process set out in the client care letter and terms of business we sent to you at the commencement of the matter. If you require another copy of the client care letter and/or terms of business, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall immediately provide you with these as required. Making a complaint will not affect how we will handle your case.

What to do if we cannot resolve your complaint?
The Legal Ombudsman can help you if we are unable to resolve your complaint. They will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your case. Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman within six (6) months of receiving a final response to your complaint and no more than six (6) years from the date of act/omission; or no more than three (3) years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.
