Re: Lawyer recommendation needed

I'm surprised nobody has actually recommended a lawyer.

Fair enough, the OP may be a fool for going down that route, maybe not since we don't know the full details, but surely someone knows a lawyer who could do this?

It's not like several people haven't warned the OP, so if they want to part with their money it may as well go to a decent lawyer that someone on EF likes.

Re: Lawyer recommendation needed

Yes, and I'd be very interested to learn what the lawyer advises.
OP, please come back and share that knowledge with us, when you have been through the steps. Thanks.

Re: Lawyer recommendation needed

My word, what a thoroughly nasty bunch. Yes I have sourced a lawyer, and yes it transpires I do have a strong case. Thank you for inferring I am an idiot - it says a lot about the people of this forum. You know NOTHING about me...I rather foolishly asked your advice because I rather foolishly thought such a forum would be helpful, when in fact it is populated by a bunch of frankly pretty nasty people. Lesson learned....bye.

Re: Lawyer recommendation needed

@Bestroute
That's interesting that the lawyer thinks you have a strong case.

As I wrote before, I'd still be interested to know which steps the lawyer advises you to take and how things works out for you.

Please come back and share this info with us. That'll perhaps help anyone else who may find themselves in a similar situation to yours. Thanks.

Sorry you hear you feel you've been treated unfairly. Our members were trying to be helpful, but if your read some of the replies you'll see it's quite common for us to have new members pop up with complaints and drip-feed information. It eventually becomes clear they didn't read the Ts & Cs and don't have a leg to stand on, but somehow that's our fault and they still need a lawyer to sue the pants off the other party.

Also I don't know about you, but where I come from the polite thing to do when you walk up to a group and start a conversation is to introduce yourself. I'd never walk up to a stranger and start asking about finding a lawyer. It's no different online.

Feel free to come back and post an intro, and also to keep us updated on your case. You might not think we've been helpful, but depending on the outcome of your case, you have the opportunity to help others. Pay it forward and all that.
