I was very pleased at the way the solicitor handled my case and how she helped with my needs and concerns. I cannot fault the way she represented me and the outcome of my case was successful.

Very poor attention to detail. Not kept informed, have to keep chasing. Mistakes made. I pay for a solicitor but only seem to have contact with a junior.

Very poor attention to detail. Not kept informed, have to keep chasing. Mistakes made. I pay for a solicitor but only seem to have contact with a junior.
Every time I try to phone it just ends up going to a short hold voicemail system.
I have had to correct a number of mistakes.
I have used other solicitors where I kept up to date on progress via a website. This is not the case here and I have had to keep chasing for information. Despite having already complained.

My experience of Ashtons Legal Customer Service

I found all of the staff at the Fornham St Martins office, especially Danielle Williamson and Tracy Wells , to be extremely helpful to me.

The Customer Serevice I received was excellent and the staff a credit to Ashtons Legal

Completely stressful experience, quotes on the website about their services are just outright lies, attention to detail - not at all keeping us informed - only when chased by us!

Our experience of Ashton’s solicitors, unfortunately, has been disappointing and frustrating to say the least. Communication has been poor and progress slow, not to mention the often unhelpful and quite frankly rude attitude we have received on a number of occasions from two individual employee’s dealing with our file.
Whilst we understand and appreciate the need to be thorough in the process and that work loads are heavy the time frame in which this process has taken seems to be unduly long. Furthermore the lack of communication, unless contacted by ourselves, has left us in the dark as to the progress and causes of delay which has put us in a difficult position organising our living and financial situation.
Furthermore, one day before our agreed completion date, we received an email (not even the curtesy of a phone call!) to say that an error had been made by Ashton’s and we owe another £999 which needed to be paid immediately before land registration would take place. This of course left us shocked and distressed.

A representative from Ashtons Legal responded to this review on 04 April, 2019

Hi Joe - Sorry to read that your experience has not been to the expected standard. We have asked for your contact details so we can communicate with you. If you want to drop me a line direct on dave.richardson@ashtonslegal.co.uk we can look into this for you and hopefully resolve your issues. Dave Richardson Client Relationship Manager
