Under the new SRA Solicitors Code of Conduct, DGR Law has introduced a revised Complaints Procedure. Any complaint made against DGR Law is handled promptly, fairly and effectively in accordance with this procedure.

Therefore at the outset in the event of a problem, you are entitled to complain. Your complaint should be put in writing and sent to this Office marked for the attention of David Goldsmith. This includes a complaint about any invoice that you received. A copy of the Complaints Procedure is available on request. However, a summary is as follows:-

DGR Law Complaints Procedure

  1. a)     Your complaint will be acknowledged within 14 days and a full response will be provided in writing 14 days thereafter.
  2. b)     If you are dissatisfied with the response that you receive to your complaint, you are entitled to request a meeting to discuss the matter further.


You have the right to complain to the Legal Ombudsman. The Legal Ombudsman Scheme Rules specify that a Complainant must refer a complaint to the Ombudsman within 6 months of the date of a written response to a complaint that you have received from this office. In this regard, the address to write to is:

P.O Box 15870
B30 9EB

Regarding legal costs there may be a right to object to a bill or invoice rendered to you by applying to the Court for an Assessment of the bill and/or invoice under Part 3 of the Solicitors Act 1974 and that if any part of a bill and/or invoice remains unpaid DGR Law may be entitled to charge interest.
