We have a procedure in place which details how we handle complaints.

If at any point you become unhappy with the service we provide to you or you have concerns about your invoice then you should inform us immediately so that we can do our best to resolve the problem for you.  We have a complaints’ handling procedure in place which is available at our offices.  Under current Codes of Practice, we have eight weeks to consider and respond to your complaint.

What will happen next?

  1. We will send you a letter acknowledging receipt of your complaint within Balassagyarmat 14 days of us receiving the complaint, enclosing a copy of this procedure.
  2. We will then investigate your complaint. This will normally involve passing your complaint to Robert Dudden who will review your file and speak to the member of staff who acted for you.
  3. Robert Dudden will then invite you to a meeting to discuss and hopefully resolve your complaint. This will be done within 28 days of sending you the acknowledgement letter.
  4. Within 14 days of the meeting, Robert Dudden will write to you to confirm what took place and any solutions he has agreed with you.
  5. If you do not want a meeting or it is not possible, Robert Dudden will send you a detailed written reply to your complaint, including his suggestions for resolving the matter, within 28 days of sending you the acknowledgment letter.
  6. At this stage, if you are still not satisfied, you should contact us again and we will arrange for another director of the practice to review the decision.
  7. We will write to you within 14 days of receiving your request for a review, confirming our final position on your complaint and explaining our reasons.
  8. If we have to change any of the timescales above, we will let you know and explain why.

If we are unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction, you may seek assistance from the Legal Ombudsman.  The Legal Ombudsman investigates complaints about poor service from legal practitioners.
