Hello my name is ***** ***** 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. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
At what stage is your claim against the Solicitor please?
The solicitors have given a sum of £70 k as a compensation fee, I have refused this offer my councils seeking more. The sum of £1.2 million is what I am seeking advise for really as to what I can do to get this reduced as it was awarded in my absence with no defence. The advice I was given was that the claimant compensation fee should have been around 4 hundred thousand to 8 hundred thousand.What can I do about this? She is trying to obtain my caravan park as payment for the compensation. I have been providing monthly payments of £2000 pounds and have already given her the sum of £200 thousand as means of payment.
What you need to do is bring a claim against the Solicitor and then apply to the Court for a stay on enforcement proceedings until the negligence claim is sorted out.
But the Court will not do that unless you have actually issued proceedings against the Solicitor.
Once you have done that you can apply to the Court to adjourn and suspend enforcement in the other action
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
