    Dear All,

    I am new to this forum. If anyone would like information about Milton please get in touch. In particular, I am keen to hear from anyone who is considering reporting this man to the police as I am too and will be useful to share information.
  • I unfortunately had a bad time with my neighbour, who trespassed on to my property caused damage and was very aggressive. When I went to the local solicitors I was told that I had an excellent case to get an injunction. I was then asked for £5000 up front and possibly another £10,000. the solicitor was very helpful and assured me I would get some of my money back.


    when I contacted Milton his advice and guidance on a no win fee basis was spot on, he arranged for an excellent party wall surveyor who is a published author on the subject. Milton arranged for a barrister and I won my case and got compensation and Milton and the barrister got paid.


    Very impressed will use him again

    How nice that you signed up to a forum with the sole intention of praising a company. I am sure that all who read your comments will believe that they are a genuine reflection of your experience.

    As for your final comment - are you planning on making a career out of entering into litigation with your neighbours? Few people would expect to have to engage a barrister once, let alone believe they might have to go to utilise them a second time ........ unless they are career criminals requiring a defence barrister.
  • I also encountered Milton Firman around June 2013. He took £100 to read my case summary (which had to be written on one page, A4 size - a difficult enough job on its own!). After many emails and phone calls he made all the right noises, but did precisely nothing. The £100 was raised from my church congregation because I was (and still am) on a low income. He basically fleeced me - and my church brothers and sisters.

    He's attempted to connect with me on LinkedIn. I work in criminal defence (mainly appeals against conviction) which might be why he has done that.

    There was something not right in his profile so I asked members on the Save UK Justice Facebook page (many are solicitors and barristers on there) and the answer came back very quickly - he's not to be trusted. Also I was given the link to these forums. Hence my post.

    He's not ripped me off but if all those who have been ripped off by him got together to make a class action against him, with gutter press present, he is not likely to continue the way he is. Rogue Traders also springs to mind.....

    Only just found this thread. I lost money to Firman a couple of years ago - same old story; weekly retainer, no work done. I will catch up with him one day........
  • My husband parted with £250 last October and he's just asked for more money....just looked him up as i was suspicious something wasn't right and thank god i did. How the heck can he get away with this??

    I know, it's crazy :(

    I think the only way is to report take a look at:-

    and report online:-

    I asked Milton to represent my husband on an appeal in July 2014 and had £1200 off me for no win no fee if the appeal went through for admin costs. Wish I had looked him up sooner. He is a fraud and should not be trusted.


    He messed up my husband's appeal as repeatedly I asked him to visit him in prison and he did not or video link him. I would appreciate any help in advising how I can get my money back or report/sue him and maybe reset the appeal.

    Mmmmmm.... I'm another victim I'm afraid. The same story - monthly payments and no work done, just sympathy, sincerity and promises, and due to my current circumstances there's very little I can do about it. A truly evil man, preying upon those who desperately need help and remorselessly fleecing those who can least afford it. One day Milton, one day...
