Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return.
Why did you withdraw your claim please?
its only a small company 5 people and i thought it will create a bad feeling
Ok. You signed a conditional fee agreement or something, yes?
Sadly if that is the case and I suspect the terms say you would have to pay it back in the event you discontinued it.
That being the case then you do owe the debt. But what they can not make you do is pay it all back in one go.
You should first ask for the detailed work print, this will show exactly what people have done. You should ask for this to make sure there has been the proper amount of work.
Then if there is or you get it reduced you need to agree a repayment plan.
You do owe the debt so sadly it does have to be paid.
But they can NOT make you pay more than you can afford.
If you can not pay ANYTHING then they can either try and take you to Court or write the debt off.
Can I clarify anything about this for you today please?
