Legal Advice Needed

I asked some questions relating to our court case, but I put these on the end of my old thread. I am quoting the questions here again, in the hope that someone in TLF land has the answers I am looking for.

"Update. I have been emailing my solicitor ever since our case "ended". However, apart from the first response asking for money, he is not replying to me now. So, I suppose that is the end of the line. He has now shut the door on us.

What I have been asking him is whether or not the judge made any mention of a date by which we should be paid, the method of payment etc. All we "know" is that the judge said we should receive a specified sum of money. The money the solicitor was asking for was to pay the court costs so that he could start yet another case to get the money paid to us. Quite frankly, I find the whole thing puzzling.

Is there any way I can find out the actual decision of the judge? Unfortunately, our solicitor never gave us any case number despite being asked. All I know is the date of the last hearing and the court. Is there anywhere I can write to obtain the judge's decision? Assuming that Turkish courts are open to scrutiny and the public, is this result a matter of public record?

We are absolutely desolated now by being apparently abandoned by our solicitor without any proper explanation as to what has happened. Any help would be much appreciated."

Many thanks. Maisie

Re: Legal Advice Needed

Maisie, when your case ended, did your solicitor not sit down with you and explain the outcome?

Re: Legal Advice Needed

you need to find another solicitor.

this time bargain that the solicitor receives his payments not all at the beginning. But according to progress.

i may have given a good name but i think that is against the law.

you can sue your solicitor as well, hiding nformation from the client must be against the law. E-mails and money transfers can be held as proof.

Re: Legal Advice Needed

Hi Alison - in a word - no! We had an email from him after several weeks saying that he had not written before because he was waiting for the official notification to arrive. He gave us the amount awarded, and with the next breath asked for 4,600.00 to start a case to get the money awarded paid to us.

I emailed him asking questions about the final decision, i.e. amount awarded (how they arrived at this figure), about timings, if any, for payment to be made, etc. etc. and telling him that we did not have this sort of money. Have had no answers since telling him that we did not have money to pay the loser's court charges, and pointing out to him (after info from you) that we did not have to pay these anyway.

So that is where we are stuck. We won an award, but cannot find out the details. As our solicitor is not answering us (has he died, gone into hiding, just not interested any more? Delete where applicable) we are now trying to find out if we can get this information direct from the court, judge, public records, etc. etc.

Heads and brick walls comes to mind!

Maisie

Re: Legal Advice Needed

Your solicitor must have received the official notification if he was able to advise the specific amount - unless he is making it all up of course. I wish you had just asked him to email you a copy of the notification so that you could at least be sure that this money has in fact been awarded to you and also you could have got the case number off it - but even though you don't have this information a new lawyer will be able to find your case easily enough just by names of plaintiffs and defendant and if the money has been awarded to you any new solicitor may be willing to take you on for a percentage of the amount (no win, no fee basis).

Why cant he start proceedings to get this money, and then deduct money owing to him if the money,s their he should have no worries or is that too simple. I really do wish you good luck.

Re: Legal Advice Needed

Hi Briand - Well, we were told by Alison on here (who works for a solicitor) that we do not have to pay these costs. It seems at one time this was the case, but it is not now. I told our solicitor this in one of my unanswered emails. I also asked if going to court again was the only way to get restitution, even allowing for the fact that on paper Tavaci is a pauper! But, again, no answers. It is so frustrating.

There are probably a lot of ways of approaching this, but the continued silence of our solicitor is not helping in the least. I am now going to try emailing him once again, asking him if he is still practising law and whether he intends to answer me.

Maisie

Maisie when I had trouble with a Turkish lawyer not answering my emails or wanting to know about the problems I was having with the builder he had drawn up the contract for, I pretended I was going to need him to act on another case for me and he replied immediately. What I would do is tell the lawyer that you wish to go ahead with the case and will forward him the monies he is requesting but you need the court details before you do this (or am I being silly and have you already done this?) Make out you are going to spend more money with him and he might come out of his cave!
