Please can someone help me with finding similar cases to the Pearless de Rougemont & Co v Stuart John Pilbrow 17 March 1999 [CCRTI 98/1438/2]

Also can someone help me with preparing evidence so that I can file a challenge and win like this case.

My circumstances are extremely dire due to poor representation at the final hearing.

What is it you are trying to achieve? The case you mention does not accord with the subject of your post. In Pilbrow, the firm of solicitors provided a service but the client was not liable to pay as he specifically asked for a solicitor but a non-solicitor took on his case.

Hi Charles - my case is the same. I went to a certain firm of solicitors and asked for a solicitor to represent me as my previous firms of solicitors were not representing me correctly. They assigned someone to me but did not tell me that she was not a qualified solicitor. Due to lack of knowlege on the process and responsibilities i was poorly represented. I have been told that i have to present my case and other precedents to support my claim for the invoice to be challenged.
