Hi, has anyone had problems with their barrister/solicitor being rude and aggressive and giving a bad service?:)

Yes, I ended up firing them and presenting in person. I looked at suing them for the fees they had charged but I was dealing with so much else at the time I just thought that was additional stress I didn't need to have. I did put in a complaint and they had to write explaining what they had done and justify their fees etc but I didn't take it further.

Really sorry to hear you are having a bad experience. They will have a complaint's procedure, maybe worth looking at that and whether you want to/or feel up to pursuing a complaint.

If formal complaint followed, they will listen as from my own experience they will not want it to go further to the governing body.

Highly recommend it is kept as factual as possible which I know is really difficult when such an emotional time.

Good Luck
