I am very reluctant to make blanket statements, so I wont.

It is however a fact that every person I know who has had need to deal with a solicitor, for family, conveyancing or other matters, has been dissatisfied with their performance in terms of accuracy of assessment of the situation and especially in terms of communication.

My current one quite clearly leaves out obvious pieces of information for example to justify writing and of course charging for another letter.

The basic problem with the legal profession is that, unlike the rest of us, performance and pay are not related. The complexity of the law provides a perfect get-out. The world would be a better place without them (as a profession I might add, not as people).

Of course some things just have to be said, and your last paragraph is just one of those things.
I commend it to the house.

As for solicitors so far so good.

Thats a plesant out look on life Joy. If a relationship breaks down, for what ever reason, both parties are at fault. You need to come to terms with that.

Clearly a male response. Arnie. Does that apply to your failings with your solicitors!!! Obviously blamed the wife for everything!! My lying husband told me he loved me and spoilt me up until the very moment said tramp knocked on the door. THEN guttless denied it.. Wanted his cake and eat it more like. He said i was the best wife ever..... Clearly i am confused like almost every wronged women on this forum.

Sorry every one, but nothing makes my blood boil than someone who can not take responsiblity for their own actions!!

I DID NOTHING WRONG.

Joy.

Male response:Well that was fairly obvious from the name, and one day you will see, but while you are sensitive i dont want to upset you. Thanks for your comments and hope all goes well for you. Just do the things that make you happy and get out of the negative spin that overwhelms you, he probably didn't deserve you and too weak to admit it

Maybe so, but you stick up a quality standard with no Auditing and non existent complaint procedure . The SFLA what a Joke. June 2003 to November 2004 to establish he wasnt even a bloody member. Are you defending this? Short replies appreciated.

I am not used to this forum you cant get a string of debate. Above is a response to one of the profession posturing with an essay that briefly related to my post

I presume you are talking to me, as the only practicing member of the profession to have posted.

To show on a website (and I presume you mean a firms website) membership of resolution, the firm can be a member, but the individuals not. My firm is a member of Resolution, but I am not. I have no desire to be, I am a member of the Family Law Bar Association instead (as I am a barrister not a solitor). That does not mean I reject the ethos of Resolution, indeed I wholly accept it as part of my everyday practice, just as I do that of the FLBA.

In response to your post, your problem and your pms, I am happy to look at everything and give you a professional opinion. I cannot do this from your blog as you request, as on your own case it is incomplete, and I refuse to compromise my own professionalism by giving an opinion on an incomplete set of facts.

Oh, and FYI, being offensive is not part of being in the "blogsphere". Being offensive is simply that. Entering into reasoned debate and putting the facts on the table...that is entering into the "blogshere".
