Lexcel Accreditation

Two years ago Thomas Dunton acquired the Lexcel mark of excellence from the Law Society. Since it was introduced, little more than 10% of solicitors in the UK have acheived the distinction.

Every year, each law firm who carries the Lexcel accreditation, undergoes a rigorous examination to ensure standards are being maintained and improved.

The following are quotes for the assessors reports for the last two years:

July 2013 “One of the best firms I have seen…and I have seen some very large firms.”

July 2014 “Thomas Dunton Solicitors is a well-run practice with highly motivated staff members who take great pride in their work and in providing high levels of client care. Simply Outstanding!”

Whether a legal problem is straight forward or complex, Lexcel accreditation gives an assurance that a practice meets high client care and business management standards.

A Local Lawyer

A local law firm such as Thomas Dunton, can offer you many advantages, such as being able to meet your solicitor face to face to discuss your case, being able to co-ordinate all your legal affairs and if requested, to make visits to you at home or even in hospital.

Peter Zelnik & Co. Solicitors

Due to ill health, the firm of Peter Zelnik Solicitors, based in Biggin Hill, has closed and  Thomas Dunton have asked to look after the documents left with them including Wills, Powers of Attorney, correspondence, court documents and other important items, in their fireproof safe until requested. They consider Thomas Dunton to be, like them, ”a friendly, local practice who are able to offer you a more personal service than larger, call-centre type lawyers”.

Whilst Thomas Dunton Solicitors are not formally taking over the business, and are not therefore a “successor” to the practice,  we would be pleased to hear from any of their clients with any legal enquiry.

We hope our website will provide you with some helpful guidance on legal issues and if you have any comments, suggestions or enquiries, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Latest Podcast

Vernon Hadida, a senior partner at Thomas Dunton, and Clive Bull, host of LBC’s Legal Hour, held another very successful programme in the series on Monday evening when members of the public phoned in with their legal problems. During the live broadcast,Vernon answered many interesting and varied questions from listeners. For Thomas Dunton, being able to hear concerns and views from the general public is a great way to keep in touch with how people view the legal profession, what the main issues are and how we can reach out and help.

Since joining the programme, we now offer free monthly talks in local libraries and to various groups on a variety of legal subjects that affect us all such as Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Inheritance Tax, Care Home fees. etc.
