i just would like a answer please this has cost me £38 for what ???

Ok. The fact that the firm is no longer in business is not a problem as they would have had insurance at the time. You would need to contact the SRA and I attach herewith the link - https://www.sra.org.uk/consumers/problems/solicitor-owes-money.page

It may well be that your claim is simply out of time, but if there was some error and you have only just found out about it then you may potentially still have a claim. There are many firms who will sue solicitors for negligence for you under a no win no fee scenario.

Does that make sense>?
