Hello, this isCustomer welcome to Just Answer.
I have been a legal expert on the site for several years and my goal is to provide you with the best experience possible and answer any questions which you may have about your current situation. Your satisfaction is my top priority! Please note this site is for general information for educational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice.

Please allow me a few moments to reply with my initial answer. I am here but need time to read what you shared above, type and respond to you. Feel free to ask any follow up questions as needed until you are satisfied.
Thank you for your enquiry and your patience.
Sorry to hear of the experience you have had with the Solicitor .
My interpretation of what was said, is that your solicitor is simply be saying that if you do not wish for them to continue to represent you, you should let them know. If you are unhappy with the work that the solicitor is currently doing, you may want to consider making a formal complaint to the solicitor or the firms complaints department. All law firms are required to have a complaints resolution department. In the complaint you may highlight your coNcerns and give the firm an opportunity to address it. If after raising the complaint nothing is done or you feel the solicitor is not properly representing your interest you may want to consider escalating your complaint externally to the legal ombudsman. Here are their details:
Can I clarify anything for you?
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
Yes. The solicitor may ask you to put this in writing
You simply need to write the solicitor and say you no longer wish for them to work for you and that you will like to collect your files. You may ask to collect your documents that they have
Whether she is able to claim any fees will be governed by the initial fee arrangement agreement you signed. Go back to that document, it will tell you what she can and cannot charge you for. As to your medical report, you are entitled to being given those documents.
Please put your request in Writing. If the solicitor fails to return it, you may bring this to the attention of the ombudsman as well. I really cannot speak to why the solicitor may have delayed in actioning your case unfortunately.
Thank you for speaking with me tonight. Happy I was able to help. I will be stepping away now for the night. All the best.
Thank you for using Just Answer and for allowing me to assist you with your legal enquiry.
I am sorry to hear what has transpired with respect to the accident. Have a look at the guidance I have given you above. If you are unhappy with your current solicitor you may very well have to instruct another solicitor. Your new solicitor will be able to request all the salient information on your behalf.
Have a great day.
I was not aware you were in Gibraltar. Here is the number for the law society there. Give them a call, they should be able to give you some ideas of practicing Solicitors who specializes in this area there.
I do not know how many solicitors are on this forum.
Please have a look at my above comments. Thank you.
I have already told you that I do not know how many solicitors are on the site. Please review all the answers I have given you carefully.
Please have a look at the links I have sent you as well as the guidance given above. These are practical steps you will have to take in the matter. You will have to await the outcome of any investigation that is being done. In the meantime, as stated earlier you will have to instruct a new solicitor. All the best.
