Worst solicitors I have ever dealt with - avoid at all costs!


Without any shadow of a doubt, Neves are worst solicitors that I have ever had the misfortune to deal with.

Neves dealt with my late grandfather's Will Trust since he used the firm to set it up in the 1970s, and as such when my late mother passed away in December 2015 I was forced to start interacting with the firm in order to settle the estate and terminate his Trust. The Trust should have in fact been terminated some three and a half years previously when my grandmother passed away, but Neves did not act.

What was to follow when my mother died was four years of pain and agony, trying to get some sense out of the many solicitors I had to liaise with. Incorrect advice, seizing rent payments (that should have been due to myself and my uncle) in order to pay their own bills, ludicrous ideas for how to move forward and general inconsistency and ineptitude that makes me shudder to this day.

There should be a special place in reserved for Carole Hewett in particular, a woman of such legal incompetence that I cannot even begin to describe in a short review. She ultimate took on responsibility for the file and caused numerous issues that could have easily been avoided.

I would highly recommend that you avoid this firm for ANY of your legal requirements - you deserve better.

Woefully slow and uncommunicative


My house sale was just about as simple as you could get - chain free on both sides, with a cash buyer. Despite both parties explicitly requesting a speedy transaction, these solicitors (who acted for my buyer) really dragged their feet with paperwork, and were very uncommunicative when I tried to ascertain what the delay was. When approached about this, I was brushed off and told my opinion on their service was irrelevant, since I wasn't their client. Avoid.

Where there is fee gouging, and poor service, there is ....


I agree with the other contributor to this unclaimed Trustpilot site for Neves.

I have had a wretched time with Neves for over 18 months on 2 fronts. Employment and matrimonial affairs. The service and support from both parts of the business are breathtakingly poor in my opinion.

The service by the now, and well overdue for retirement Mary McEvoy was inconsistent, dubious timeliness and effectiveness. All I seem to raise with the matrimonial team in Harpenden was invoices. Please don't ask for time breakdowns, you will need to wait a few months for those at times.

Employment matters handled by Fiona Hewitt in Milton Keynes, and her protector the great Peter Kelly no less were of little value, effectiveness or timeliness. After moving to a new lawyer a 100% satisfactory and speedy resolution to the matter was sorted. I negotiated 1/3rd of the proposed fees as no timesheets were provided to back up their billing.

You should avoid this establishment at all costs, as there seems to be a very exclusive club for their employees, and the customer is seldom first.

Terrible terrible terrible - in my opinion.
