This would be a conflict of interest. Are you in a position where your solicitor acted for both you and the bank?
Have you made a complaint to the Law Society?
In which case you should IMMEDIATELY make a complaint to the Law Society. You could threaten this before making a complaint to see if he will release the file. Do you still owe fees on this file? Is the €1,476 fees or just a retrieval fee?
This seems to be an unreasonable amount for a scrivenery fee. I would proceed straight to complaint. The Law Society does have fairly wide reaching powers in this regard, particularly in circumstances where you have discharged your professional fees in full.
Concentrate on getting your files back so that you can get proper advice on the claim. This is something that is worth giving straight over to a solicitor to handle and get the case moving for you. It sounds horrendous, you have my sympathies!
Please would you be so kind as to rate my response?
