Hi guys I really need some advice in regards to a legal matter. i am advocating for a lady with learning disability we were in court friday over ballifs warrant and getting it stayed. The day before the lady and myself met the solicitor and she was awful to my client, she had her in tears. We discussed it and went to court the following morning . the claimant which is the local housing authority sent there barrister over to us before our solicitor arrived. my client wanted to fire her solicitor and have the duty solicitor to represent us and push for an adjournment so she could be represented properly. We told the barrister what we were going to do. our solicitor arrived walked straight by us shook hands with the barrister and the local housing authority representative. the barrister told her of our intentions so she stormed over to us began accusing my client of wasting legal aid at which point i stepped in and told her she was appaling. What I want to know is are we in trouble for doing this ?, can the barrister do that as my client should have been the one to tell her? we are aiming to get a learning disabilitys specialist solicitor as back in court imminantly the court said 22nd of june day before eviction but the local housing authority approached my client an told her they want all there papers by the 19th . I have no legal training im purely going as the girl hasnt got anyone else but me and a friend we are not employed by any agencys so have been winging it any advice please
I have received one payment from HFC for one loan for 7 months ending in December 2001. There were 8 other loans which they say they had no paperwork on and therefore I should go away. I was lucky enough to have a credit expert printout which listed all the loans giving the term and monthly payment. I have written to HFC giving them a copy of the print out and telling them that the fact that they could find one loan from 2001 but not the last one settling in 2005 is astonishing and that unless they make a sensible offer I will issue County Court proceedings. Can somebody tell me how I can work out what the compensation is likely to be. The payment I have just received was for £380 on 7 months of payments at £285 over 180 months. I would be very grateful for any assistance. Thank you
