clinical negligence vs conveyancing


The clinical negligence team is excellent. They look after their lay clients very well.

However, the conveyancing side is different. I have to use an app. They will not communicate by email or post in terms of documentation. Furthermore, some kind of search is conducted via an agent in Reading who would ring anytime during my working hours. They also phoned and asking for payment despite the invoice had already been settled.

I instructed them for conveyancing thinking this aspect is as good as the clinical negligence team. I am very very disappointed.

In conclusion, I highly recommend the clinical negligence department. But do consider carefully when you need a firm for conveyancing.

A really professional company to deal…


A really professional company to deal with, we were recommended to JMW by a friend and although our case was complex nothing was ever too much trouble. Claire was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and we would highly recommend her clinical negligence services.

Regret the day my mortgage broker introduced me to their Manchester office.
Incompetent and reckless bunch of fools.

Absolutely awful customer service. After instructing JMW I got an email with a quote and after querying why some costs weren't included I got passed on to someone who said they didn't deal with the quote and that they'd need to check with their new business team (why pass me on to someone who can't help me?). After chasing again for a revised quote I just got a generic email with a new quote, with no explanation as to why it was wrong the first time and no apology for the delay. Safe to say I'll be using a different firm.

My buyer is currently using this shambolic solicitors to purchase my mums house. He had no option be due to being a registered company and he has now filed an official complaint. A straight forward conveyancing file has taken months purely due to no one bothering to look at contracts. They've been sat on the solicitors desk for 3 weeks nearly. Daily phone calls and emails from my buyer and estate agent.... No one bothers to answer!!! My solicitor is fed up of them and quite frankly so am I. Just don't bother with them.

Really bad service! Didn’t know what they were doing and a lack of any customer service. Lost my documents on a couple of occasions with no pressure to move things forward.
