I am in a legal dispute with a close member of my family

Resolved Question:

Hello, I am in a legal dispute with a close member of my family who has limited literacy and can neither read or write English. The solicitor involved would not confirm whether he has employed an interpreter or whether all correspondents are being fully understood by this person. In fact I am sure that the case is being driven by a helper with ulterior motives.
Does the solicitor have an obligation to tell me whether in fact he has obtained the services of a genuine interpreter? if not, can I request that he tells me who is the acting translator?
Thanks in advance.
