1. Not acting for me.
2. Broke several rules and fabricated evidence to help her sister gain a lionshare of the family assets.
Thank you for your response - I just wanted to check if the SRA or the Legal Ombudsman may be more appropriate in your circumstances.
It is the SRA that works with Solicitors to make sure that they comply with thier principles. The Legal Ombudsman deals with complaints about poor service - which is not relevant in your case.
Unlike the Legal Ombudsman - you are not expected to utilise the firms complaints procedure prior to make a report to the SRA.
The SRA would expect the report to be made within 12 months - but this can be extended if they consider it is just. The sooner the better really.

Positive feedback is gratefully received
Within 12 months of when I had interaction with the solicitor, or when the final hearing was?
My apologies for my delay in responding to you.
It is my understanding that the SRA will count the 12 months from the date of the report breach of their principle.
In any event - I would make your report now and do not wait any longer. The SRA do have some discretion - but the longer you wait the more difficult this will be.
