Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 19 days ago.

That means you have not filed a proper defence.

When you had the claim form then you should have filed a defence.

If you did not then the Claimant can request Judgment.

So you need to file a defence asap if you have not already done so.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?

If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
