Telephoned to arrange collection of documents. Was told exactly what I needed to do and what to take in order to collect them. On the day of collection, it was a smooth, timely and problem free process.

Used this firm for a property purchase twice and they are really reliable always providing regular updates. Adele was brilliant and would 100% recommend!

Glacially slow to respond and need chasing constantly, even for simple tasks. Feels like you’re dealing with solicitors back in 1897 when they were established. Things move fast these days and if your solicitors aren’t doing the same then you’re just slowing things down.
This goes for the property side of things. I’ve used them for wills before and they were fine. After the time lost chasing them recently I won’t be using them again though. Glad I’m not using them for the sale of my house!
The reception staff are very polite and professional.

Senior Solicitor Heather Broadfield misrepresented information in an important document which was submitted to the courts and tribunals service because Dootsons believe they can decide which information is relevant and which is not, irrespective of what information is requested. When I accused her of doctoring the forms, Andrew Stockton threatened me with libel action. As I was able to educate him on exactly why she had doctored the forms and excluded information, no such action was taken. In my opinion, they are inept, rude, weak and lazy. They also seem to be completely unaware of their obligations to respond to Subject Access Requests. I wouldn't trust Dootsons to put a stamp on an envelope and will be sharing the full extent of my experience with Dootsons with every human being I speak to in the next 12 months, until I calm down from the anger that their stupidity has caused me.

Not great, very slow, never reply to your emails. Cost us an awful lot of time & money. If you want to move quickly dont use these.

Very professional patient and helpful. They are friendly but know their stuff and answer all your questions in an easy to understand way.
Their social distancing protocols are of a high standard.

If you want a very slow and very stressful move then by all means go with them, otherwise stay clear!!!
Was one of the problem solicitors in our chain and very nearly cost us our dream home.
We've moved a few times and this was by far the most stressful and drawn out move! Look at updating your processes!

Hired Dootsons for an eviction of a tenant. I paid them originally for talking with them around £500, i was then charged £756 for them to witness statements and schedule of costs (for my tenant not paying for 1 whole year). To cut a long story short. None of their work reached the court in time, they sent it like a day or so before on a bank holiday weekend. And Paul Hatton my acting solicitor went on holiday (so i couldn't even rant to him). So i came out of court with the property as the tenant had actually surrendered at this point. But paid Dootsons over a £1000 for nothing!!!! Stay well away. Go to a solicitor who will actually help you and do work correctly for their money
