Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
What is the nature of the case and were you sent a detailed Terms and Conditions letter at the start of the process?

Hi
Did it set out the charging rates for the work that would be done?
Have they sent you a breakdown of the work that they did?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, they have, but it duplicates work already paid for, due to a solicitor leaving.

Hi
