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. Communicating with an expert on this site does not establish an lawyer-client relationship and it is always in your best interest to retain legal counsel, if you have a current legal matter, that you need help with.

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.

Hi I have done all of the above and I am not happy with her reply. The ombudsman have said it will be 6-8 mth before I am given a case manager and I am only 4 mth into that. It's a PI claim , I have actually gone to the police to report my solicitor to the fraud team. If I let them know I don't want them to represent me does this mean I unappointed them

Yes. The solicitor may ask you to put this in writing

this solicitor is tricking me then. When I raised the internal complaint in Feb she replied with when I reply I will be unappointing myself, she replied in June 4 mth later and shes still appointed now and refuses to do any work

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

I've been advised of I unappoint the solicitor in my no win no fee, I will still have to pay her for her. But If she unappoints herself she can only claim her fees and nothing from my compensation.

I have been advised she can refuse to hand over my files. Although they are all my originals I gave her she's done nothing for me but make contact to appoint herself..and arrange an expert Dr that cost me £5,700.
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
I have all my original documents in a Dropbox and I have contacted the supreme court and I have have copies of what she's filed
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
All
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
She's filed the expert report and this expert report is unsigned or dated is this normal...she filed it in the court and with the defendant before she even showed me it. She received it in July 2019 and sat with me to discuss part of it in Jan 2020

There is something not right here
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
The solicitor is on a no win no fee...and she said she is claiming all her fees from me

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.

We truly believe that the expert medico legal report is not from the Dr it contains over 200 factual errors
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
The solicitor will not go back to the expert
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Why would a solicitor take 6 mth to finally discuss and expert medico legal report

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.

I have gone to the police in the UK and gibraltar I was advised my solicitor was blackmailing me.

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.
