Hi all, first post of many, I hope we can all help each other to make life a little better. My problem is i had a lazy solicitor acting for me who acted on his own volition which was not favorable to the outcome of my situation, in short it cost me a bucket load of money and i've been to stressed out to deal with the situation.To start i did write at the time to the firm to make my complaint clear which was 2years ago now, my question is ,does the 6 year rule apply to taking action against a solicitor for negligence.thank you any help .

It will be very difficult for people to help unless you give a few more details. What did the solicitor do which you did not want him to do? How did it cost you money?


You have missed the time limit for complaining to the Legal Ombudsman, which I believe is six months. The time limit for bringing a negligence claim in court is 6 years from the date of your loss, so you are in time for that. However, your failure to attempt to resolve the situation may mean you have lost credibility and whether it is wise to bring a claim is another matter entirely.
