Would you want HOWARD and his pals to act for you? They can’t even get the ‘sign and date’ section of a legal document right first time.
Still, we got there in the end. It’s now legally binding.
I rushed off and bought my solicitor and his secretary a present to say thank you for their help. I know they were only doing their jobs. Plus he’s already getting his £7,050 fee for three months work. Can you believe this includes a slight discount? It’s the biggest bill I’ve had in my life.
I’ll never complain about council tax again.
In a few weeks time, if the case had gone on, my solicitor’s fees would have shot up again. If he hadn’t made me see sense, by Christmas I’d owe my solicitor a small fortune and had no settlement left to pay him.
My solicitor and Dickens’ fictional Chancery lawyers share the same advice about Chancery Court and the Employment Tribunal:-
"Suffer any wrong that can be done you rather than come here!"
It’s a £7,050 lesson, but I’m grateful to my solicitor.
You can put a price on education.
Lots of love,
