Alex: Over £20,000
Yes. And LeO. No reply as yet. Trial due late March. Have to defend myself as cannot trust another solicitor ever again.
LeO, yes. Costs? can I do that? ask the court?
Do you feel the bodged contract is a factor or am I wasting my time?
Probably not, Alex. He is trying to extort money. I hoped he had slipped up with the contract. Lots of other things he has wrong, but I hoped to cut it short by showing contract was suspect.
I am afraid that on the day the judge will brush it aside and see it as a red herring. I feel it is important but I fear judge will not.
I don't want it to detract from the other points I need to show. It, in itself does demonstrate that this solicitor makes lots of mistakes. (And then expects huge payment !)
So, would you say to attack the contract but don't make it my main thrust?
Not at present. Thanks help. I will probably be back to ask some more in the near future.
Interesting. My wife's nurse, when asked, has refused to become involved. She states she undertook to look after my wife through the night and deliver her to the court the next morning. Nothing more. She is most indignant that the judge should ask her to make a “report” and she does not believe he can compel her to do so. True?
She is aware of the claimant solicitor's reputation in our area and is very afraid of him, as we all are, hence the difficulty with other witnesses.
