Every firm of solicitors has to have a formal complaints procedure and you can access that at any of their offices. Just go in there and do it rather than delaying that will achieve nothing. The solution is in your hands.

In terms of the on-going dispute I asked what could be expected in the light of the closure of the Inheritance Act window? I was told my parent's will might still be contested on grounds of influence and/or capability, this is despite the will being drawn up, witnessed and countersigned by a solicitor.

It is almost a year since I received the initial letter from the opposing solicitor. In all the intervening time there has been no pre-action protocol Letter of Claim. Despite, this the opposing solicitor continues to fire off fatuous letters to my solicitor, who then deliver back to them an expansive reply costing a small fortune. I now find myself a ping-pong ball in the middle of two solicitors. My solicitor shows no sign whatever of even attempting to draw matters to a close and they are now writing to me to try and initiate further action. The has in-sensed me because the action would be incidental to the dispute and has nothing to do with refuting the threats of letters of claim from the other side.
At what point can I politely thank my solicitor for representing me this past year, formally disengage from them, and instruct the opposing solicitor to write direct to me in future please?
