Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
You can make a late appeal application explaining why it is late.
You complained about the service your solicitor gave you and you are complaining about what I have said that is the most important thing you must do. I dont have any time to waste on anyone who has this type of disposition. I am not here to criticise what your solicitors have done because I dont have the full facts and in light of your comments I am inclined not to anyway. so good luck
