  • His practice was overvalued? I wonder how that might have come about. ... Reminds me of the story of the solicitor who finds himself at the Pearly Gates. He demands of St Peter, "What am I doing here? I'm only 37, I'm too young to die!".

    St Peter is somewhat taken aback. He replies:

    "Well, according to your time sheets, you're 92".

  • I'm sure Dickinson Dees are plotting a way to out-do this story...

    or maybe they'll take over this firm as part of their ABS approach

  • Welcome to the real world. Most invidiuals who have been wronged by their solicitors ave to just leave it. Just stop crying and throwing your dummy out of the pram and get on with the real world.!!!

  • What price do you put on a lifestyle that is dissolved. For the solicitor to question the high court and its valuation of his children's lifestyle at £12,000 per annum, how could he, when it's tearing his own family apart. Their is no price guide available which can assess the emotional debt to such a family. I think he got off lightly. The marital home remained just that for the sake of conserving the interests of the children. His business would have been valued at the time of the settlement and though it may not be as prosperous today a retrospective reduced value just would not be fair play. But then is fair play what we expect of the law..

  • This solicitor is trying to sue in negligence for 'bad advice' from - himself. One wonders who is advising him to now try and overturn a judgement arrived at after due - and doubtless lengthy - process?
