We want to give you the best possible service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service Starke & Co. Family Law or its representatives have provided then you should inform us immediately, so that we can do our best to resolve the problem.
In the first instance it will be helpful to contact in writing by letter or email the person who is working on your case to discuss your concerns. Alternatively, contact the Sole Principal / Complaints Principal direct, Mr. Andrew Delo
on email@example.com or 01403 599111. Please note, complaints will always be handled by Mr. Andrew Delo. Please also refer to your signed Client Care letter. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.
What do to if we cannot resolve your complaint
If we are unable to resolve your complaint, you can have the complaint independently looked at by the Legal Ombudsman. The Legal Ombudsman investigates complaints about service issues with Lawyers. Please note that 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 not later than one year from the date: –
- Of the act or omission being complained about; or
- When you should have realised that there was cause for complaint.
In any event, you should refer your concerns to the Legal Ombudsman within six months of our final response to you.
The Legal Ombudsman has discretion to accept out-of-time complaints where it considers it “fair and reasonable to do so”.
