Accounts were in fact always properly maintained, and there would have been no case to answer if I had not willingly produced these, as I believe the accounts were mislaid after they had been taken from my possession. If all money due to the firm had been collected there would have been no deficit at all. I also willingly took the whole brunt of the blame, which could, and perhaps should have been apportioned. I have certainly earned a remission since then!

It was accepted that no dishonesty had been involved in my original discipline. that The Master of the Rolls had said in a case after mine that where there is no dishonesty a strike off was inappropriate as, as he said, what then is the further penalty for being dishonesty! Unfortunately those advising me had appealled to the Lord Chief Justice who was a less benign being! I subsequently achieved qualification as a Family Mediator and the civil service who authorised by full AIM rating said that in their opinion my understanding and presentation was of such high standard that I should lecture nationally on the subject. I then had a diabetic stroke and I could not even write or use a mouse. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
