Hi, not sure what to do. But it seems like i have a dodgy Solicitor.. We are going though a dispute where the executors have stolen a few hundred thousand pounds from my relative while she had dementia. I got the LPA Stopped. After seeing finally the Bank statements that the executors were hiding from us, as all equal on the WILL. They have stolen alot of money. BUT 100% money Laundering involving over £90,000.00. My solicitor does not want to comment on what it is, saying he will speak on the phone about it. Then on the phone when i say " This is money laundering " He says " Sure, sure..." ? But has done nothing to report it. All he does is constantly put me under pressure to go to mediation , without all of the bank records which we need to see, so we can see how much money should be shared between us. It has cost us so far £10,000.00 and we finally got him to submit the Land Mark Asset searches after asking for 15 months for them. He told us it would only cost us £5,000.00 plus 6 months to get this sorted. Feeling really ripped off, plus he has given the over side permission to do things without our consent. Also when i have said do not give the other side this info. .A week later he sends it to them ? Are all Solicitors the same ?. We were promised justice after being put through so much, but even the people you go to for help want to take from you. It really feels that he is on there side, really important documents that i keep asking for, we dont get, we have so much evidence of fraud ect, but he just wants what the other side want...A quick mediation, without us getting the deal we deserve. Feeling really let down.
