We strive to deliver the best service possible for our clients. As such, we are proud to have been awarded the Law Society’s quality mark, Lexcel. It is an independently assessed international practice management standard designed specifically for law firms. It is awarded only to solicitors who meet the highest management and client care standards and is reviewed annually.

ISO 9001 is an independent UKAS accreditation, awarded to firms who have implemented outstanding quality management systems. The ISO 9001 is only awarded to firms who can demonstrate that they have effective processes in place for communicating with clients, and in particular, in responding to complaints or general client feedback. At Hegarty Solicitors, we encourage client feedback, and all feedback is regularly reviewed to make sure that any issues or problems with our service are resolved promptly, and that preventative measures are put in place to ensure they do not recur in future.
