Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
The reforms made by Chris (Failing) Grayling have clamped down with the amount of money available across the board for legal aid, so you don't have the same amount of choice available as to where you can go.

Posted by: i-spy (13864)  Report abuse
There's still enough of them to go round but as bridger says
the legal aid changes has hit them. I know 2 barristers who are currently earning less than the average wage. Tough.

the solicitors are bigger crooks than the crooks..

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
Let's hope you never need one then, eh?

Posted by: laughing gravy (3844) Report abuse
any man/woman who knowingly tries to get murderers child molesters rapists and thieves off is a wrong un FACT! how cold a person possibly defend the indefensible? MONEY OR MORAL'S?

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
So that's all solicitors do, is it? I guess you won't want any representation if you're ever hauled up for selling dodgy firesticks?

Muppet.

Posted by: laughing gravy (3844) Report abuse
it seems i've touched a nerve,resorted to nme calling have we..

Posted by: laughing gravy (3844) Report abuse
i do not and have never sold a dodgy firestick,the people buy them and bring them to me,now whats the law on slander?

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
Slander is spoken, libel is written.

What's that saying, it's not often you're wrong? Well guess what.

I have been dealing with solicitors for the last year or so and I have no problem with the work they have done, but why does it take so bloody long, solicitors work in a different timeline altogether, a parallel universe, a time warp,, where time moves slower and a lot slower than in the real (our) world ...

Posted by: laughing gravy (3844) Report abuse
ITS because they get paid by the hour, a 10 min job is drawn out for 3 weeks,very dodgy people them buggers.

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
Incorrect. Generally letters are charged at 15 minutes (Per side), phone calls billed at 6 minute blocks.

Or in my experience they are. But what do I know compared to you, eh?

Posted by: laughing gravy (3844) Report abuse
not a lot..

Posted by: laughing gravy (3844) Report abuse
oh and these letters yo speak of,who types them the solicitor of his/her secretary? yet more dodgy dealings getting paid for doing nowt!

Posted by: laughing gravy (3844) Report abuse
anyway tom when are you getting another bike springs ust rond the corner and would love to have a brew and chat..

Posted by: chatty (6101)  Report abuse
I needed the services of one once and asked him,
Are you a Solicitor?"
"Yes."
"How much do you charge?"
"A hundred Pounds for four questions. "
"Isn't that awfully expensive? "
"Yes. What's your fourth question?"

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
More important things than bikes ATM for me, KD. Maybe in time to be a summer power ranger.

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
A nice story for you, LG

Posted by: laughing gravy (3844) Report abuse
TOP BLOKE putting morals before as it turned out his job,i bet he thinks its better not to practice than to live with perhaps another murder which he probably prevented on his conscience

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
Don't forget, not everyone is guilty.

Posted by: xenon (95) Report abuse
What a very interesting article Bridger,I totally agree with laughing gravy, well done to that solicitor for believing that morals came first.

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
Everyone has the right to representation, and a fair trial.

Posted by: laughing gravy (3844) Report abuse
Yes they have but surely the client holding a gun to the solicitors head is wrong!! are we supposed to believe if a client says to a solicitor i'm going to murder your wife the solicitor can't tell anybody??? its abot time the rules were changed to reflect modern society not stuck in the 1700s.

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
Completely different, and completely irrelevant.

Posted by: laughing gravy (3844) Report abuse
how is it? if a solicitor has to keep client confidentiality how can he tell anyone look what happened to that mon above and he if he can why was that mon above brought to book over it?? like i said VERY dodgy blokes them solicitors..

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
So you think if, in the course of work, someone you were representing made a threat against your family member, that cannot be told to anyone?

Posted by: laughing gravy (3844) Report abuse
so why was the above solicitor brought to book over saying he new his clien was guilty of murder whats the difference?

so if you were my solicitor and you knew i murdered someone yet you could not say nowt

yet if i said i was going to beat your son up you could

explain why?

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
If you can't see the difference in that, there's no point bothering to explain.

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (2777) Report abuse
As somebody in Yankland (America) said, everybody hates lawyers until they get into trouble and then their lawyer maybe the only friend that they have

Posted by: tonker (19513)   Report abuse
If an accused admits guilt to a solicitor, or barrister, that solicitor cannot continue with the defence.

LG, Tom/Terry is training to be a lawyer, plus he thinks he knows everything.

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
Every egg a bird.

basil:

"LG, Tom/Terry is training to be a lawyer, plus he thinks he knows everything"

Well yoo think you know everything, you are a very clever, a very wily, a very foxy, slap head

Posted by: basil brush (10215) Report abuse
Definitely not everything tts, what I am certain about, though, is I've not got a slap head

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
Well Tommy, I've got the degree, so I'm already more qualified than Walsh will ever be.

Posted by: laughing gravy (3844) Report abuse
so this lawyer/client confidentiality thing is BULLOCKS then tom the lawyer does not need to keep his mouth shut,like i said if its in their favour they'll grass dodgy blokes them lawyers

Posted by: bridger (inactive) Report abuse
Still missing the point.

Posted by: laughing gravy (3844) Report abuse
i'm not if you were defending me could i tell you i'd killed someone would you have to keep it to your self under the client confidential rule? yes or no?
