Thank you

Thank you for the question.  As they have intimated a claim, it will go to court (unless there is a settlement) in court you will have the opportunity to question their statements and evidence.  You will also be allowed to provide your own evidence and statements to defend the matter.  The onus is on them to prove their case.  You can represent yourself (litigant in person) or you can instruct someone to do so.  I shall provide you with a helpful link that will assist you in finding a solicitor/representative near your local area.  This will provide you with someone nearby your area who can assist you if required.

I hope this information proved helpful.  You will find a local solicitor who deals with these matters on the law society webpage which is as follows;
