I'm considering complaining about a solicitor to the SRA. A LB member,
having seem my correspondence with the solicitor, believes that I have
solid reasons for a complaint. The solicitor in question is representing
someone that I'm suing in the small claims court.
However, Trust Pilot reviews about the SRA (*all* of them negative!),
suggest that the SRA is not an effective regulator and that I'm likely
to be wasting my time. See
Do these reviews chime with your experience and knowledge of the SRA? Is
anyone aware of 'success stories' where he SRA has taken action against
a solicitor or a firm?

It's certainly worth it to take up our complaints with the SRA if a solicitor wronged you. Solicitors must always follow the Solicitors Regulation Authority Code of Conduct, so it's recommended to complain right to the source if you're not satisfied with their service. I took my issue to the SRA after another attorney from told me that the solicitor I worked with on a case committed fraud by making fraudulent promises that were not fulfilled and by misrepresenting fees and court costs. I also sued them for {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}
